Just as is the case with the Rams, we feel like we have absolutely no choice but to back the hosting Bucs at +2 on Sunday. The general public is all over the Saints, and probably for good reason, as they are probably set to go on a big run of wins to get back in the playoff chase as well. However, Tampa Bay isn’t a slouch team. We really discount last week’s win over Kansas City, as we think the Alabama Crimson Tide could have taken down the Chiefs with QB Brady Quinn calling the shots, too. However, for whatever reason, these Bucs seem to play well defensively against New Orleans regardless of the situation. Over course of the last few years, the Saints have clearly had the better of these two teams, yet in the end, Tampa Bay is 4-3 SU and 4-3 ATS in those seven games. And over 70% of the public is backing QB Drew Brees and company? Seems odd to us.
Saints @ Buccaneers Pick: Tampa Bay +2
New Orleans @ Tampa Bay Score Prediction: Tampa Bay 23 – New Orleans 20
