The New Orleans Saints will play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on NFL Monday night at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.

The New Orleans Saints are 4-8 this season after they lost to the San Francisco 49ers by a score of 13-0 in their last game. New Orleans was out gained by a total of 317-260 and turned the ball over two times in the loss. The New Orleans offense is averaging 20.8 points per game with 234.1 passing yards per game and 113.2 rushing yards per game. Andy Dalton has thrown for 2,023 yards, 14 touchdowns, and seven interceptions for the Saints this season. Alvin Kamara has rushed for 524 yards and one touchdown, while Chris Olave has caught 56 passes for 822 yards and three scores for New Orleans. The New Orleans defense is giving up 23.3 points per game and 326.4 yards per game.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 5-6 this season after they lost to the Cleveland Browns in overtime by a score of 23-17 in their last game. Tampa Bay was out gained by a total of 367-325 and forced one turnover in the game. The Tampa Bay offense is averaging 18.2 points per game with 266.1 passing yards per game and 73 rushing yards per game. Tom Brady has thrown for 3,051 yards, 14 touchdowns, and two interceptions for the Buccaneers this season. Leonard Fournette has rushed for 462 yards and three touchdowns, while Mike Evans (questionable) has caught 51 passes for 702 yards and three scores for Tampa Bay. The Tampa Bay defense is allowing 18.5 points per game and 315.2 yards per game.

New Orleans is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 Monday games. The under is 4-1 in New Orleans’ last 5 games. Tampa Bay is 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 home games and 0-8-1 ATS in their last 9 games on grass. The under is 15-3 in Tampa Bay’s last 18 games against the NFC. The under is 4-1 in these two team's last 5 head-to-head meetings.

New Orleans comes into this game after losing three of their last four games, and wasn’t able to score any points against San Francisco in their last game. Tampa Bay has won two of their last three games, but really should have won their last game against Cleveland. Both of these offenses have struggled, and I like the under here.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
