Giants at Bucs odds: Giants are 7-point underdogs

Of course they are

NFL: Preseason-Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Pittsburgh Steelers Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

This is what happens when are not truly competitive while losing back-to-back games to open the season. You wind up as 7-point underdogs to the not-exactly-great themselves Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which is what the New York Giants are in current Week 3 NFL odds.

The Buccaneers are 1-1 after a 20-14 victory over the Carolina Panthers in Week 2, and will be at home for Sunday’s 4:05 p.m. ET game.

After a 1-8 start in 2017 and a 1-7 start in 2018 the Giants will be desperately trying to right the ship before a third straight season spirals completely out of control.

“Well, we have to go win a game in Tampa, that’s the message,” Giants coach Pat Shurmur said Sunday evening. “That’s just how you have to roll this thing out. Just go play.”

The Giants have been outscored thus far, 63-31. The 32-point differential is topped only by the woeful Miami Dolphins, outscored by 92 points, 102-10, thus far. The Pittsburgh Steelers have also been outscored by 32 points through two games.
