NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take New Orleans. According to latest NFL trends, the road team is 13-5 against the spread in the last 18 meetings between these two teams, while the Saints are 4-1 against the number in their last five games versus the NFC South. New Orleans is also 9-3 ATS in its last 12 games versus the NFC and 11-4 ATS in its last 15 games overall. The Bucs, meanwhile, are 8-22 against the number in their last 30 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last five games versus the NFC South. New Orleans has struggled mightily to start the year but Tampa Bay has done little to improve its pass defense, which ranks 31st overall. If Drew Brees can the Saints’ offense can fire on all cylinders like they did two weeks ago versus the Chargers, they should win this game outright. Lay the one point.
