Pirate’s Picks and Saints Predictions
23 Saints, 21
The Bucs are weak, and Brady doesn’t look comfortable in the pocket with both start-ups hurt and his position abroad for the year. I just don’t think the Saints have enough continuity to beat them yet – the Bucs aren’t the hawks.
If the NOLA line swells near +150, I’ll consider spraying a little. However, Brady and Co. accomplished it. take Buckners (-135).
On the contrary, I think the Bucs struggle aggressively enough to give the Saints a chance. DE Cameron Jordan It will stay in the face of TB12 all day long. If I find a place to take more than 1.5 bags, I will be more.
Saint Lin +2.5 (-103).
What a great number here. We are expecting 44 pips, but that could happen either way. Tampa only scored 19 and kicked as many field goals as they couldn’t protect Brady. The Saints dropped 27 on an inferior team from Atlanta, and most of the offense was dismantled.
Weak under 44.5 (-117).
