NO -3 O/U 47
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are set to visit Mercedes-Benz Stadium in New Orleans, Louisiana for an NFC South clash against the New Orleans Saints. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers come into this matchup with a 2-2 record, and they will be looking to continue their success after winning their recent road game against the Los Angeles Rams, 55-40. QB Jameis Winston had a big game for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as he threw for 385 yards, 4 TDs, and 1 interception. WR Chris Godwin was the top target for Winston and the Buccaneers as he hauled in 12 catches for 172 yards and 2 TDs.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers struggled on the defensive side of the ball against the Los Angeles Rams as they allowed them to score 40 points and rack up a total of 518 yards of offense. Kevin Minter led the way for the Tampa Bay defense with 9 tackles, 2 TFL, and a pass deflection. While Jordan Whitehead recorded an interception from the secondary, the LBs stepped up against the Rams as Lavonte David and Shaquil Barrett both contributed interceptions.
The New Orleans Saints come into this matchup with a 3-1 record, and they will be looking to continue their success after winning their recent home game against the Dallas Cowboys, 12-10. QB Teddy Bridgewater struggled to get much going through the air for the Saints as he threw for 193 yards and an interception. WR Michael Thomas was the top target for Bridgewater and the Saints as he hauled in 9 catches for 95 yards.
The New Orleans Saints were very good on the defensive side of the ball against the Dallas Cowboys as they held them to 10 points and a total of 257 yards of offense. Vonn Bell led the way for the New Orleans defense as he racked up 10 tackles, 1 pass deflection, and 2 fumble recoveries. The secondary had a big game for the New Orleans Saints as Marshon Lattimore pitched in 2 pass deflections while Marcus Williams hauled in the lone interception of the game.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers flashed potential on the offensive side of the ball against the Los Angeles Rams as Jameis Winston may have one of the top WR duos with Godwin and Evans. The New Orleans Saints have picked up some impressive wins with their backup QB under center as they beat the Seahawks and Cowboys, but he has been anything but impressive through his two starts. The Buccaneers may have struggled on the defensive side of the ball against the Rams, but Todd Bowles has completely shifted this unit around, and I expect them to keep Bridgewater and the Saints in a close game.
