Why the Giants can cover
Only the Green Bay Packers can match the Buccaneers' unbeaten streak at home. Tampa Bay is 4-0 straight up and 3-1 against the spread at Raymond James Stadium. They've won by wide margins in three straight home contests since failing to cover against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1.
The Cowboys' star receiving corps gave them a fighting chance against the Buccaneers, but the Giants lack the same offensive firepower. New York has a bottom 10 rushing attack, while its passing game has struggled without a true WR1. Tampa Bay doesn't have that problem, as it ranks third in points per game (31), first in passing yards per game (315.6), and first in passing touchdowns (27). The Buccaneers have won their home games by an average of 22 points and have only failed to win one home game by double-digits.
Why the Buccaneers can cover
Tampa Bay's last two losses have come away from Raymond James Stadium, but the Bucs have been one of the NFL's best teams at home. They're 4-0 straight up and 3-1 against the spread as hosts in 2021. They could build on their impressive run at home on Monday Night Football.
The Buccaneers have won three straight home games by double-digits since edging out the Cowboys by two points in the season-opener. Tampa Bay has won its last three home games by an average of 28.6 points, and its success has depended on a dynamic passing attack. The Bucs boast league-high marks in passing yards per game (315.6) and passing touchdowns (27), but the Giants don't have the same firepower and struggle to run the ball.
