Odds from 

In the second game of the preseason the Giants are the favorites and the good news is I think the Giants are going to win and cover their spread in this game. The Bengals defense did not really look that impressive and in the second week of the preseason I do not thing that the Bengals would have made enough changes to stop the Giants from scoring. The good news is the Bengals do have a good offense that will keep the game close, but the Giants cover and the total goes over.
