The Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on what will seemingly be a new-look New York Giants' team on Sunday. With rookie Daniel Jones being named the Giants' starting quarterback, the G-Men could look like a different team. However, that doesn't mean it changed the way oddsmakers feel about the Week 2 contest.

After opening with the Bucs favored by 6.5 points, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, that line has not moved, despite New York's switch at QB from Eli Manning to Jones.

The Bucs enter their home game against the Giants with a 1-1 record after a 20-14 upset win over the Carolina Panthers in last week's "Thursday Night Football" game. The Giants, on the the other hand, are 0-2 having lost those contests by an average of 16 points.

Jameis Winston, the Bucs all-time passing leader, is 1-2 in three career starts against the Giants, going 53-for-90 with five TDs and one interception. Despite, the quality numbers, it hasn't led to many wins for Tampa Bay. In a game that saw Winston split snaps with Ryan Fitzpatrick last year, the Giants came out on top, 38-35, in Week 11 at MetLife Stadium.

With seemingly no difference between Manning and Jones, at least when it comes to point spread, we'll have to wait and see how this one plays out on Sunday.
