As a team, New Orleans is averaging 368 yards of total offense and 22.7 points per game while allowing 316.6 yards of total defense and 20.2 points per game against this season.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will look to build on a 30-27 overtime win over Arizona last time out to snap a four game losing skid.

New Orleans is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 23-8 ATS in their last 11 road games while the under is 9-1 in their last 10 games against a team with a losing record. Tampa Bay is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games while the over is 6-0 in their last 6 games against the NFC. The favorite is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings between these two teams.

New Orleans really let me down against Atlanta, but it was a recipe for disaster for the Saints, coming off of a bye week against the team at the bottom of the division with just one win and nothing to lose. Tampa Bay is tempting with the points at home after taking down Arizona in their last outing, but I’m still not sold on the Bucs as they give up way too much on defense and Jameis Winston has shown time and time again that he has significant issues with decision making as seen by his 14 interceptions this year. I just have more faith in New Orleans getting back on track than I do New Orleans sustaining their recent success, so I’ll lay the points with New Orleans here.
