According to latest NFL trends, the Saints are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games in Tampa Bay and 7-3 against the number in the last 10 meetings overall. The Saints are also 5-1 against the spread in their last five games versus a team with a losing record and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games versus the NFC South.

The Saints looked great defensively last week against Atlanta, sacking Matt Ryan repeatedly and holding the Falcons to only 17 points. Meanwhile, Drew Brees threw for over 350 yards with two touchdowns and continues to lead one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL. Meanwhile, Josh Freeman overslept and missed a team meeting last Monday and has reportedly been late for other team-related matters. With doubts setting in about Freeman's future in Tampa, look for the Saints to roll.
