Saints +4.5 at Bucs – 2 units


The Saints got Marcus Davenport back on defense last week and get David Onyemeta back from suspension this week. Their defensive line is going to be the strongest it’s been all season today and the defense has already given Brady problems in the past and beat him twice last year. Marshon Lattimore has erased Mike Evans most of the last few games they’ve played and Antonio Brown is still out. Tampa Bay hasn’t covered a road game yet this season (0-3 ATS) and the Patriots were able to make things tough on Brady and the Bucs also lost by 10 in Los Angeles to the Rams. Playoff rematch from a really close game and now the Saints are 4-2 going against 6-1 and New Orleans’ urgency should be really high. This is a huge home game and the Saints brought back Mark Ingram who’s going to play and that helps open up the offense because you can line Kamara out wide with Ingram in the backfield. Andrus Peat out doesn’t help but the backup left guard looked good and is someone the Saints staff has a lot of confidence in. This should be a great game that the Saints keep close and the defense puts a lot of pressure on Brady.
