Betting on the New Orleans Saints (7-2)
The Saints were on the receiving end of one of the most shocking upsets of the season last week, when they were handed a 26-9 loss by the Atlanta Falcons at home. The Saints were cruising prior to that, winning six-straight games to get a big lead atop the NFC South. Despite the stumble against Atlanta, the Saints have no reason to panic. They won all their games when Drew Brees was gone due to a hand injury, and they are better with him back under center, notwithstanding the loss to the Falcons. The Saints will take on Tampa Bay next, a team they already defeated at home back in Week 5, 31-24. Teddy Bridgewater handled the passing offense for the Saints in that game, and he easily lit up Tampa Bay’s porous defense for 314 passing yards and four touchdowns. The pair of running back Alvin Kamara and wide receiver Michael Thomas should have a fun time puncturing the Bucs’ defense that is allowing 31.0 points per game.
The Saints are 6-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last seven games.
Betting on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-6)
The Bucs snapped a four-game losing skid last Sunday, defeating the Arizona Cardinals at home, 30-27. The Bucs would have had a better record than what they have now if some things just fell their way — or if they exerted more effort on defense. Their loss to the New York Giants, Tennessee Titans, and the Seattle Seahawks were each by four points or fewer. They need their defense to step it up and at the same time, avoid back-breaking turnovers on offense. In Week 10, the Bucs defeated the Arizona Cardinals 30-27, with Jameis Winston throwing for 358 yards and a touchdown, but had two interceptions and was sacked four times for a loss of 19 yards. In the upcoming rematch with the Saints, the Bucs are hoping Chris Godwin will blow up again. Godwin had 125 receiving yards and two receiving touchdowns in that game. It’s also important for the Bucs to get Mike Evans going. Evans was held to zero catches on only three targets in the loss to the Saints.
The over is 3-0 in the Bucs’ last three games at home.
The Saints win, 31-27.
