Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. New York Giants
NFL Week 11: Sunday, November 18th 2018 1:00 PM EST TIME
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are looking to stop their losing streak as it is at a three games at the moment as they take on the New York Giants on Sunday morning. As for the Giants, they are off an upset win against the San Francisco 49ers as they look to keep it going.
Another Fitzmagic Show
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are a mess right now as they will once again start quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick in this game. I personally think they have the best chance when they start QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, but I guess that makes my betting prediction easier in the end right? Last week was a prime example why they might need to put in Winston as Tampa Bay managed to drop 501 total yards on the Washington Redskins but managed to only score once in the whole game. Fitzpatrick has been a turnover machine this season as he was picked off twice in the game along with throwing for 406 passing years.

To go along with the quarterback errors, the offense as a whole committed a total of four turnovers. Most of those drives would reach the red zone but were unable to get anything produced as the turnovers killed them. They have one of the best wide receivers in the league in Mike Evans as he was held by the Redskins tough defense for only six receptions and 51 passing yards.
Finally, the New York Giants make some money for bettors as they were able to come from the being down and cover but more importantly win the game! The season has had mostly downs but last week on Monday Night Football against the San Francisco Giants showed what the Giants can really bring to the table. It was not an easy win but it was led by quarterback Eli Manning who finished the night with passing for 188 yards on 19-of-31 completions, along with three passing touchdowns with zero interceptions. The Giants would win the game off a Sterling Shepard touchdown catch with just a minute remaining as well.

With Tampa Bay having the worst defense in the league, could Manning have another three touchdown performance? For the New York Giants, they are allowing 32.3 points and 400.0 total yards per game. On the flip side, Manning must have another strong connection with Odell Jr as he is only averaging 73 yards per game. Can the Giants cover this small line on Sunday morning?
- Giants are 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 meeting
- Buccaneers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games after accumulating more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.
- Buccaneers are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall.
- Buccaneers are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up loss.
- Buccaneers are 0-4 ATS vs. a team with a losing record.
- Buccaneers are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 vs. NFC.
The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.
Full-Game Side Bet
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have the worst defense in the NFL as they are allowing thirty points per game. With the amount of stars on the offense for the New York Giants which include, Eli Manning, Saquon Barkley, Odell Jr, they should be able to take it home.
Prediction: New York Giants
Full-Game Total Pick
Tampa Bay is starting to falter a bit as their once red-hot offense is now near the bottom of the pack thanks to their turnovers. With that in mind as well as the struggles the Giants have on offense here and there the Under is looking great. The Under is 4-0 in Giants last 4 games following a straight up win as well as 6-0 in Giants last 6 games in Week 11.
