New Orleans Saints Vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Betting Odds And Analysis

You’d be forgiven if you thought Sunday night’s game between the Saints and Buccaneers was a case of David vs. Goliath. The Bucs are defending Super Bowl champs, and they boast the GOAT in quarterback Tom Brady. They also lead the NFC South.

But, the Saints are actually four-time defending champs of the division, and they have won the last six regular-season meetings with Tampa Bay. That makes this prime-time Sunday game an intriguing contest. Last season, New Orleans spanked the Bucs in Tampa, 38-3 on Sunday Night Football. This time, you can bet Old Many Brady will want revenge.

The betting odds suggest Brady has a good chance to get it too, as Tampa Bay is favored by double digits.

Betting Recommendation

The Bucs will face their third Saints quarterback this season. This time it’s Taysom Hill, who doesn’t so much as “wow” as he tries to avoid making mistakes. Hill also is not completely healthy, which will make it even more difficult for the Saints to sustain drives. The key player for New Orleans on offense will be running back Alvin Kamara, who is coming off a 145-yard performance. The Bucs will need to key on Kamara, and if they can subdue him, the scoreboard should tilt in their favor.

Brady and the Bucs’ offense has been inconsistent this season. You really don’t know what type of attack you’ll see from week to week as the season wears on, but they have been clicking at home. Even though some experts think the Saints will keep it close, Tampa should win this game and clinch the NFC South. And since the Bucs love home cooking, place your bet on the OVER, which is currently at 46.5 points at most sportsbooks.
