SNF in Tampa as the Buccaneers host the New Orleans Saints in this NFC South matchup. A win tonight will secure the division for the reigning Super Bowl champions and will also be the first time Tom Brady has beaten the Saints in the regular season since becoming a Buccaneer.
We’ve been riding the Mike Evans train for a few weeks now, and we’re going to do so again tonight. The big-bodied receiver has 60 or more receiving yards in nine of thirteen games this season, including in four of the Buccaneers last five games. New Orleans have the second-highest ranked run defense, per PFF, so I’d expect to see the pass-first Bucs stick to what they do best and throw the ball.
Spread: Saints +11.5
Game Prediction: Buccaneers 27-17 Saints
Best Bet: Mike Evans over 59.5 receiving yards @ 10/11 with Bet365. [0.5]
