|-3 NO (-113) @ 888sport|
Big Brady fan, but I strongly believe the Bucs will lose this game. Tampa is a really good team, but this is one year too early for them in my opinion. They are still without their highest graded defensive player, they are without their 3rd best offensive lineman, their coach and offensive coordinator are outmatched in this match-up, Mike Evans is playing through injury, and they are playing a road game against the most complete team in the NFL who is also fully healthy. As I mentioned before, Drew Brees and Michael Thomas missed 4 games and 9 games respectively and still went 12-4. If they played all season and this team went 15-1 or 16-0 like they very likely would have, what would this line be in that scenario?? I assure you it would be closer to -6 than -3.
Love the Saints chances to win this game - beating a team 3 times in the same season isn’t as hard as everyone says it is, while the Saints have the better team, better coaching staff, and have no travel. Got a lot riding on the Saints futures already, but this is the right play in my mind. Cutting the play in half due to our large future bet on the Saints to go all the way.
