NFL Playoff Picks 2021: Tampa Bay vs New Orleans Predictions
The NFL playoffs are the best time of the year. All of the games are exciting to watch, but some stand out more than others. That is the situation this weekend. Everyone is excited to see Tampa Bay go up against New Orleans for the third time this season. With apologies to Green Bay and Kansas City, the Tampa Bay vs New Orleans predictions are what everyone is talking about.
Tom Brady may possibly be the best quarterback to ever play the game. Brady excels in the playoffs and his track record is unmatched. This may be the reason that over 58 percent of the public is willing to bet on the Buccaneers plus the points this weekend. The odds show that the Saints started out as 3.5 point favorites and that spread is down to 3 points after the public put money on the Buccaneers.
Third Times a Charm
The narrative is talked about all the time. The Saints won 34-23 win in New Orleans in Week 1 and again in Week 9 in a 38-3 rout. It is hard for any team to win three times in a row against any team. The stats say it all. Teams that host a playoff game that has beaten an opponent twice in the regular season are 12-5 straight up in those meetings. If you throw in how teams do against the spread when they win the game outright, this game becomes more interesting.
Tampa Bay vs New Orleans Predictions
The Bucs are one dimensional. They are all about Brady. The Saints can run and they can pass. They have a better coach and they have a better defense. In the past, the Saints defense has frustrated Brady and although has played better in recent weeks, he has not faced a defense of this caliber. The Saints have cover 80 percent of the last ten games played and they are 7-1 ATS in the last 8 games as a favorite and in the NFC.
Tamps is 0-5 ATS in the last five meetings and they will lose again. It will be close, but the Saints will win, advance, and cover the spread.
