In the first two games what determined the winner was who won the battle at the line of scrimmage. New Orleans won the battle on offense when they had the ball and defense when the Bucaneers had the ball. Forget about turnovers. New Orleans is flat out a better and more sound team. On top of that the Saints will get back their top pass rusher Trey Hendrickson. He had 13.5 sacks this season. When he's in the Saints are an elite defense. On offense the Saints played the playoff game last week with RB Alvin Kamara coming back from Covid and WR Michael Thomas in his first full game since midseason since being injured and on IR. Both were maybe 80-85% last week. This week both gamebreakers will be close to 100%. Tampa Bay has a couple key weaknesses. Their offensive line is way below average and their secondary can't cover any decent WR's. New Orleans big here!

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
