Saints vs Buccaneers: Week 7 NFL Sunday Football Odds
Despite their records, the New Orleans Saints and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers should provide fans with an entertaining game Sunday, October 21, 2012 at 1 PM ET. Raymond James Stadium will be rocking when these two NFC South rivals meet in Tampa, Florida. Tampa Bay is 2-3 and New Orleans is just 1-4 but both teams are capable of running off a long winning streak in the hopes of grabbing a Wild Card spot for the playoffs. Don’t be surprised when the Saints knock off the host Buccaneers Sunday.
New Orleans Saints: The most dangerous one-win team
New Orleans is without a doubt the team with the most to prove in the NFL and the most dangerous team with just one win. We saw the Saints defeat the Chargers at home two weeks ago for their first win of the season and a bye week that followed should have helped get the team ready for this tough divisional matchup. Drew Brees will be picking on the Bucs’ secondary as cornerback Aqib Talib is out on a drug suspension.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Limiting Brees the key to victory
If Tampa Bay wishes to win this divisional game, the defense for the Bucs will need to limit what Drew Brees and the Saints do on offense. This will be difficult since they will be without suspended star cornerback Aqib Talib. Brees exploited the secondary of the Chargers two weeks ago but the front line on the Bucs’ defense, which has been stellar this year, will be a challenge for the Saints offensive line in this one.
Even though the Saints have just one win on the season, it’s one win in a row, and Brees and Co. should be able to pull this one out in hostile territory. Tampa Bay will have to find a way to slow down the explosive New Orleans offense and that will be difficult with Talib out of action. After their impressive first win of the season, put your money on the Saints with the -1.5 (-120) spread to knock off the Buccaneers Sunday afternoon.
