The Sunday Night game for week 9 of the NFL season is set to be a good one as the New Orleans Saints travel to Tampa Bay. They will be looking to sweep the Buccaneers in the season series, having already beaten them earlier this season.
The winner of this game will also take sole possession of first place in the NFC South division, making it that more important.
New Orleans Saints
The Saints needed overtime to beat the pesky Bears, but got the job done this past week. This was a final score of 26-23. The field goal in overtime made up for their inability to stop Chicago from going down the field and tying the game with just seconds remaining on the clock.
Brees had an effective day under center, completing 31 of his 41 passes. He threw for 280 yards and two touchdowns, including one going into halftime to keep New Orleans close. More importantly, he did not turn the ball over.
Their running game was pretty average, picking up 122 yards on the ground. This was over 30 carries, giving them 4.1 yards per carry. Of course, Alvin Kamara led the way in rushing, picking up 67 yards on 12 carries. He also led them in receiving yards, catching 9 balls for 96 yards. If the absence of Michael Thomas persists, look for Kamara to once again be the go to guy.
Defensively, the Saints held the Bears to 329 total yards. Nick Foles threw for 272 yards and two touchdowns, but the Saints were able to force an interception. They did manage to hold Chicago to 96 rushing yards and their leading rusher had 89 yards.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Bucs started slowly against the New York Giants, but ended up winning the game 25-23. Tom Brady was able to put together a solid game, throwing for 278 yards and two touchdowns. He did not turn the ball over either which was big. Their rushing offense was not great to say the least, picking up just 82 yards on the ground.
The Bucs rank as the highest scoring offense in the NFL, averaging 31.7 points per game. They are a top 10 passing offense and a top 15 offense overall.
While the defense allowed a late touchdown, they stopped the two-point conversion to secure the win. They allowed 357 yards to the Giants, mostly through the air (274), compared to on the ground (101). They did force a couple turnovers that were big in terms of the Giants almost scoring.
Tampa Bay ranks 1st in total defense and 1st in rushing defense this season. That will be put to the test against a much better Saints’ offense compared to what they just saw against New York.
NFL Betting Trends:
- Under is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings in Tampa Bay.
- TB are 2-7-2 ATS in their last 11 home games.
- NO are 28-10 ATS in their last 38 road games.
4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Under 54.5
I feel as if New Orleans is getting disrespected here in this game. They already beat the Buccaneers once and just because Tamp Bay has added some pieces, does not make me believe they are the superior team. Both defenses however, have been plenty good, so instead of taking a side, I am going to look to the under in this game.
