NFL Odds Week 2: Buccaneers Vs. Giants

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are a two-score underdog to the New York Giants in their second game of the season. Various oddsmakers place the Buccaneers as low as a 9-point and as high as a 7.5-point underdog.

The odds, though, don't necessarily mesh with the two teams' results from Week 1.

The Buccaneers, who opened the week with a nine-point spread, beat the Carolina Panthers, 16-10. Running back Doug Martin impressed in his NFL debut, rushing for 95 yards on 24 carries. The play of Tampa Bay's defense was also impressive, as the Buccaneers held the Panthers to just 10 rushing yards on 13 attempts.

The Giants, meanwhile, lost to the Dallas Cowboys, 24-17, in the NFL's opening game Sept. 5. Cowboys' quarterback Tony Romo dissected the Giants' defense, throwing for 307 yards and three touchdowns.

Kickoff for the Buccaneers vs. Giants is set for 1p.m. Sunday inside MetLife Stadium. The game will be televised by FOX.
