NFC South Division Rivals Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New Orleans Saints
Both the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the New Orleans Saints will be looking to bounce back from a bad opening day loss when these two NFC South rivals clash at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome this Sunday afternoon. BetAnySports has opened the Saints as heavy 11.5-point home favorites and the total for this game has been set at 47.
Tampa Bay will look to pick up the pieces from an ugly 42-14 loss to Tennessee in Week 1 as a three-point home favorite. The total went OVER BetAnySports’ closing 41-point line. The hype surrounding top draft pick Jameis Winston quickly subsided after the Titans rolled-up 21 points in the first quarter to put the game out of reach early. Winston ended the day completing 16-of-33 attempts for 210 yards and two scores, but he was also picked-off twice and sacked four times.
The Buccaneers were only able to add another 92 yards on the ground and their total offensive yards for the day were less than 300. Defensively, Tampa Bay had its hands full stopping another rookie quarterback from lighting-up the scoreboard. Marcus Mariota threw for 209 yards and four touchdown passes in his NFL debut for the Titans.
Can the New Orleans Saints put an Entire Game Together?
As bad as Tampa Bay looked, the Saints may have actually looked worse in their 31-19 loss to Arizona as two-point road underdogs. Drew Brees still passed for 355 yards and a score, but New Orleans’ high-powered offense had to settle for a field goal four times in that game. The running game was almost nonexistent with just 54 total yards on 20 attempts.
The bigger concern could be the Saints’ defense which had no answer for Cardinals’ quarterback Carson Palmer. After missing a good portion of last season due to injury, he looked sharp in this season’s opener with 307 yards passing and three touchdown throws while completing 19-of-32 attempts. Arizona also got a boost on the ground with 120 yards rushing on 20 carries.
This game is more about where do we go from here after both of these teams were apparently not ready to start the regular season. The Bucs have had some success at keeping games close on the road against New Orleans with an 8-4 record against the spread in their last 12 road games in this series. I am going to take the bait on BetAnySports’ 11.5-point spread simply because I cannot see the Saints winning this game by more than 10 points at this point of the season.
