Saints vs. Bucs Prediction

NFL Week 14 Predictions: New Orleans Saints vs. Tampa Bay Bucs 12/11/16

Will the Saints put a dent in the Bucs' playoff hopes by upsetting their division rivals today at 4:25PM ET in Tampa?

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Bucs are 2-point home favorites versus the Saints after opening as a 3-point favorite earlier this week. The total, meanwhile, sits at 51 points after hitting the board at that same number.

SAINTS KEY TRENDS: The Saints are 7-0 against the spread in their last seven road games, are 7-1 against the spread in their last eight games versus NFC South opponents, and have covered in five of six when taking on NFC foes. They're also 7-2 against the spread in their last nine games overall, are 4-0 against the number in their last four games coming off a loss, and are 7-0 at the betting window in their last seven games following a loss of more than 14 points.

BUCS KEY TRENDS: Tampa is a perfect 4-0 against the number in its last four games overall, is 4-1 against the spread in its last five games against NFC opponents, and is 4-1 ATS in its last five games coming off a win. That said, the Bucs are just 20-44-1 against the spread in their last 65 home games, are 7-16 against the number in their last 23 games in December and are 10-23 ATS in their last 33 home games versus a team with a winning record.

OUR PREDICTION: The Buccaneers are not only the hotter team they're playing better defense right now. Their pass rush has been excellent over the last couple of weeks and if they can get defenders in Drew Brees' face, I like the Bucs chances of winning a close one. Plus, Jameis Winston and the Tampa offense is starting to fire on all cylinders, which spells trouble for a Saints defense that has had issues getting off the field all season.
