NFL Week 15 Free Pick: Take New Orleans. According to latest NFL trends, the road team has actually covered the spread in 6 of the last 8 in this series, but the Saints are 12-3 ATS in their last 15 home games and the Bucs are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 divisional games. The Saints picked up a 35-28 win over the Bucs on the road back on Oct. 21. The Saints may not be in the playoff picture, but they are still working to play like a playoff team. The Bucs are in the midst of a slide and it is largely due to a poor defense and the struggles of quarterback Josh Freeman, who has struggled to complete 50 percent of his passes over the last month. In a potential shootout, stick with the more reliable quarterback.
