Tom Brady and the Bucs have figured things out the last two weeks. After a surprising 20-19 loss to the Bears, they’ve wiped out the Packers and Raiders by 28 and 25 points. In no spot on the field do the Giants have a clear advantage.
To make matters worse, the Giants are just 3-13 ATS in their last 16 games as a home underdog. This is obviously a bad number to back, especially for a road team, but there are exceptions to every rule. Find top odds for the spread at William Hill.

Buccaneers-Giants Under 45
It typically takes two to tango in the quest for the Over, but how the Giants are going to score is a mystery. They rank only above the Jets in points and yards per game. Take away the 34-point outburst vs. the horrid Cowboys D, and New York has scored 14.6 ppg.
Against the top four defenses they’ve faced — Steelers, Bears, 49ers and Rams — that number is 11.8 ppg. The Bucs rank No. 3 in total defense. The Giants are far better on the defensive side. Grab the best odds at the best line for the total over at DraftKings.

Third Quarter — Under 9.5
Third quarters are typically low-scoring compared to others, but the Buccaneers and Giants have so far taken that to a new level, allowing a combined 4.4 ppg in the first 15 minutes of the second half. It’s also the lowest-scoring frame for each team (8.7 ppg combined). Secure the third quarter prop for the best price at FanDuel.

Brady Over 275 Yards/ Evans Over 75 Yards
Brady is averaging 273 yards per game already, and the Giants rank 24th in pass defense. WR Mike Evans has too often been the odd man out in the loaded Bucs receiving corps, averaging just 45.4 ypg. But in the three games Chris Godwin has missed, Evans has averaged 6.3 receptions for 89 yards, including two 100-yard efforts. Lock in the Brady-Evans double with good odds at FOX Bet.

Darius Slayton — Score TD
The Giants have just nine TDs in seven games. Four are on the ground, by four different players. Five are through the air, and three of those are to Slayton. Slayton has more targets and more receptions for far more yards than anyone else on the team. When Jones is under pressure and needs to make a play — and that’s going to happen a lot — he will look to Slayton. If New York is going to get into the end zone, Slayton is as good a bet as any. Lock in the Slayton TD prop at FOX Bet.
