Don't let this line fool you...Tampa Bay STINKS....They're worse then my posted picks. I'll take the Saints who are for real with Sean Payton back.   Tampa bay has no offense whatsoever and they Over-achieved last year. Josh Freeman is over-rated. GL to all

After seeing Tampa Bay against the Jets I have to somewhat agree.

New Orleans - 37                           Tampa Bay - 20

Saints -3.5                                    over 47

Never comfortable going against a home dog in a divisional match up. Reluctantly.

Saints - Over

I got the line at 3 right when it came out. By game time, this could move to like 5 or 6. I was thinking possible "trap", but sometimes you just gotta say, "What The FU**".....

Saints minus 3 for me, don't let me down Drew!!!

Line is low is because Saints allowed more yardage on first game.  But that was against Falcons and Ryan.. We're talking about Freeman here!! Not to mention Saints came back from 0-10.

Saints -3 = 3 units

New Orleans defense is improved,  Tampa offense crappy,  Seeing a blowout here.  NO  whatever the spread.

New Orleans Saints last year, had a 10-6 record Over / Under. Of the 16 matches they played 15 games had a line more than 50 points. In week one they faced the Atlanta Falcons with a line of 54 points, the final score was under. Tampa Bay does not score many points and difficult to see New Orleans Saints record all the points of this game. I expect a close match.

The line dictates that this is the biggest "trap" game of the week.

I don't care.  I'd take the Saints if this was anything short of a double digit spread.  Divisional game?  So what.

New Orleans 34 Tampa Bay 26.  Bucs might keep it close in the first half - or play catch up in the second half - but the Saints offense will get score 30 plus and the Bucs will not...

GL to all

The spread has trap all over it, just like Monday Night Texan/Charger game. But not gonna happen here.

Last time they played 41-0 SAINTS. Peyton back, smell a blowout!!!!!

Saints @ home vs Ari next week who showed up against STL and make it tougher on Saint defense.However,in the grand scope of things,Saints know they have a opportunity to get a 3-0 start which is very much a benefit.A loss to the Freeman(non-captained) led Bucs could be demeaning but not devastating...Brees and Payton won't allow that this early...Saints M/L -160..this price is too good to be true and is a gift that shouldn't be neglected.

While I give you all the respect in the world for your college RSI picks,  you are out of your league in the NFL (last year) and so far this year Mr 0-1.  At least I went 5-3-2 last week. Then again ,it's a long season and you might get lucky!

Im in Tampa , and if they cant beat the Jets , then they have no chance against the Saints. Sean Payton is back and he knows how to beat the Bucs.

 Bucs management and coach have now have demorlized and stressed out QB J Freeman  and shook his confidence , He wont preform with all the negativity in his head and continue to make mistakes.

Saint win -3. Poor Bucs

Payton back, NO to win. I'm somewhat cautious of 3 on the road against TB, likely ML here for me. GL all

Under 48.5.  8 of last 10 meetings under total. This game is shaped the same. TB defense will slow down NO offense to stay in game.  TB offensive is no threat to score many points.

Improved saints D?I think Tampa D outscores saints D, and helps push this game over and close enough, Tampa's muscle RB will play a huge role as it may rain. Still like the over and TB covers +3.5 or might even get the unlikely win.

27-24 Saints/Winner

I guess I am not as high on the Saints as the rest of you Saint backers.
Look,the Saints stunk last year,and I just don't believe that Peyton
back,is going to just turn this team around over night.
Taking Tampa Bay based on their much better defense then Saints,
and it's there home opener.
They should play some inspired ball today.
