The New York Giants host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday Night Football this week.

Wes Reynolds and Dave Tuley preview the game and break down their best bets.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-12.5, 45.5) at New York Giants

Reynolds: The Buccaneers (5-2 SU; 4-3 ATS) sit atop the NFC South by a half game over the New Orleans Saints and are coming off two impressive wins over Green Bay (38-10) and at Las Vegas (45-20) over the last two weeks.

The Bucs offense was expected to improve with the added weapons surrounding Tom Brady, who comes into Monday night off his best game of the season (369 yards and four touchdown passes), but the defense has really been the story as the Tampa stop unit ranks third in the metrics Pass Defense DVOA and first in Rush Defense DVOA, according to Football Outsiders.

The Bucs are allowing the fewest rushing yards per game (66) and rank third in total yards allowed (291.3 ypg) and second in sacks (25). Tampa Bay has held six of its seven opponents to their respective lowest yardage total on the season.
