MLB Odds/Point Spread: New York Giants -3, Total Odds: 39

While it might be challenging to get a sense for preseason games early on, both clubs need to do much better in this second week. The offense for New York managed just 216 yards (135 passing), had 13 first downs compared to the Lions’ 19, and converted just 2-of-15 third- and fourth-down tries. Carolina struggled against the Jets’ defense, even the reserves, going 3-for-13 on third and fourth downs while committing two errors. The important players should participate a little more in this match, and New York is predicted to establish a lead early enough to claim victory.
