The Survivor

The Bucs put a four-game winning streak on the line when they take on divisional rivals Saints in week 14. The Saints are coming off a tough loss to the Lions at home and can ill afford any more missed steps if they hope to keep their slim playoff hopes alive. Bucs are just 2-4-0 SU at home, so one could argue home field advantage is a moot point. Saints are 2-3-0 SU on the road. It’s anybody’s game, really. Given form, Bucs to win makes more sense. However, this just could be a bit of a trap game.

Game Total
Drew Brees and the Saints offense have had mixed outings this season but they’re still averaging almost 29 points per game. The Bucs are averaging 23 points per game. It’s no surprise that this game is trading on one of the highest totals on the NFL odds board in week 14. Given what is at stake in this game, the atmosphere should be electric and the conditions perfect for a high-scoring fest.
