Awful lot of points to be giving the goat with Evans Godwin Brate and Gronk … I know its in NO but I see this as a FG type game … Any other takers … ?? peace_5

The game is 3.5 months away and with alot of current uncertainty. One advantage N.O. could have is Jameis' knowledge of the Bucs. If this game goes off accordingly, look for Arians and Leftwich to throw sum different wrinkles at the Saints.

Honestly this is a strange game, first glance I just cant see Saints losing this game................ BUT after much research I think TB keeps it close..... I see this a 1-2-3 pt win for saints.... I think Brady is done, weapons dont matter is arm is shot.... I dont think tampa will live up to the hype this year but do expect them to keep it close here

If his arm was "shot" do you really the Bucs would have signed him, really, think about it. He can make all the throws necessary. Is his arm as strong as it once was? Probably not . Like a pitcher who no longer throws 98 but 93 instead, his experience and knowledge more than makeup for that other 5 mph.

This is especially true in the Covid-19 times we live in. But the experience the Bucs get with Brady and Gronk will cancel this one out a bit.

On the other hand; I don't see the home advantage in Covid-19 times either. Just playing in the Dome doesn't give a lot of advantage over the opponent. It's the home crowd that gives the boost (that's what I think).

All-in-all I think the line is set right at this point.

Charon, you're absolutely right, it's the fans that give a team the home field advantage, 100 percent. And short of the Saints themselves, no team plays there more than the Bucs

That's not true. There was an extensive study done years ago that proved the fans weren't the reason for HFA. It was the officials. There is a pdf of it online somewhere.

Saintsfan, I can believe that. Why? Human nature. Refs are influenced by the fans the way players are reenergized by them. Without the fans, there is no outside influence.

I suggest, going against TB as "HF's...

...ALL YEAR

Take ANY points, with "whomever" the RD is, in ALL-of TB's  home games.

Travel and rest are also a part of HFA. Familiarity with sightlines and noise of a stadium, sun or artificial lighting etc...

Yes, Tampa Bay is the right choice in this game.

With TB actually GETTING 4.5 points, as RD's, and simply "buying" an extra field goal, gets you: 

 "TB +7.5"(a "key #)

...it just, seems & looks-like a "set-up".

..."too good to be true"

I think that, Vegas is trying to, "fish you into", taking TB at that number.

I would only take TB, if on a teaser, of an "extra" 6 points-or-more, therefore getting double-digits. Otherwise, simply take another game.
