PUBLIC BETTING: As of this writing, the Saints are receiving 62% of the betting tickets but 64% of the money is on the Bucs to cover the point spread.

INJURY REPORT: For the Saints, Brandon Coleman (neck), Trey Hendrickson (ankle) and Terron Armstead (thigh) are all questionable for Sunday. Kenny Vaccaro (wrist), meanwhile, is out for the year.

For the Bucs, Robert Ayers (neck) and DeSean Jackson (ankle) are both questionable. J.R. Sweezy (leg), Vernon Hargreaves (hamstring), Demar Dotson (undisclosed) and Ali Marpet are all out for the year.

OUR PREDICTION: The under has cashed in five of the last six meetings between these two teams and is a perfect 4-0 in the last four meetings when the game is played in Tampa. The under is also 4-0 in the Saints' last four games on grass, is 4-1 in their last five road games, and is 6-2 in their last eight conference games.

On the other side, the under is a perfect 5-0 in the Bucs' last five home games, is 5-1 in their last six divisional games, and is 5-2 in their last seven conference games. IN their last 15 games played in the month of December, the under is 10-4-1.
