New Orleans Saints vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Best Picks
This is not as straightforward as you would like it to be. Tom Brady has seven touchdown passes against the Saints in his five regular-season games as a member of Tampa Bay heading into this matchup. However, he has been heating up this season as he has thrown for multiple touchdown passes in his last two games.
The Saints have P.J. Williams and J.T. Gray ruled out, and Marshon Lattimore is listed as questionable, so the New Orleans secondary is really banged up so go with Brady to throw multiple touchdown passes.
Tom Brady Over 1.5 Touchdown Passes (-130)
New Orleans Saints vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Prediction
This is not to say that the Buccaneers are a good team, but to say that the Saints are just inferior right now. It feels like the Saints are tanking without owning their own first-round pick and this could be a huge issue. Looking at the offensive production in the last three games, New Orleans is averaging 12.3 points per game while Tampa Bay are scoring 18 points per game in that same stretch.
The Saints have failed to cover in any of their previous five road games this season, so don't expect that to change here either.
Prediction: Tampa Bay Buccaneers -3 (-115)
