1 unit on Tampa Bay +3.5 (-108) (risk 1 to return 1.93) RESULT: LOSS
New Orleans is running out of chances after losing in the playoffs in heartbreaking fashion three years in a row. Drew Brees is 41, and this might be his last opportunity to get back to the Super Bowl. The Saints finished 13-3, but they played only four games against teams above .500 last year and went 2-2. Meanwhile, Tampa Bay is all in with the signing of six-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady and Leonard Fournette, who ran for 1,152 yards on 4.3 yards per carry in 2019 for the Jaguars. Also, Brady will be reunited with Rob Gronkowski, who sat out the 2019 season after nine years with the Patriots. Brady will have something that was missing his last season with the Pats and that is a healthy and talented receiving corps, including Mike Evans and Chris Godwin to go with tight ends Cameron Brate and O.J. Howard along with Gronkowski. The defense is led by linebacker Shaquil Barrett, who led the NFL in sacks with 19.5 and forced six fumbles. The Buccaneers are 7-3-1 ATS their last 11 road games, and the Saints are 0-6 ATS the last six years in Week 1 and 1-4 ATS their last five home games. Play the Buccaneers.
