Free NFL Picks: Saints vs. Buccaneers Predictions September 15th

Jimmy Graham SaintsWeek 2 NFL Picks: New Orleans Saints vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Historically speaking, the New Orleans Saints and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have played some very interesting games. The Saints have won and covered three straight games in this series, but in the end, the ‘under’ is clearly the way to go on the NFL betting lines in this one.

The ‘under’ is 8-1 in the last nine games in this series, and there’s a reason for that. The Bucs have a history of being able to slow down the Saints. Sure, over the course of the last three meetings, Tampa Bay has allowed 41,35, and 27 points in this series, but in the end, this is a much better defense than what we have seen over the course of the last few seasons. What hasn’t changed about the Bucs is that they are still a one-trick pony. They can run the ball with RB Doug Martin, but they aren’t throwing it all that much with QB Josh Freeman, at least not effectively.

New Orleans’ offense wasn’t awesome as we are expecting last week against the Falcons, and the unit clearly did make a bit of an effort to run the ball a little more. Head Coach Sean Payton is clearly going to try to get the job done both through the air and on the ground. It was the defense though, that really made the difference in the 23-17 victory. The potential is there for a lot more points in this one, but we think that betting the ‘over’ is more a hope for points than anything else. It’s clear that the ‘under’ is the better of these two plays, knowing that neither of these clubs played a game beyond 40 points last week.
