Of the 57 BettingPros experts that have weighed in on the Divisional Round matchup between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New Orleans Saints, 51% are siding with the underdog Buccaneers.

Betting Impact:

The Buccaneers are +3 point road underdogs versus the Saints, per BettingPros consensus odds. The Buccaneers are one of two underdogs getting more betting attention from our experts this weekend, which matches the general public's view and makes Tampa Bay a very "public 'dog" this weekend. It seems slightly more bettors are buying into the notion that it is difficult to beat the same team three times in a season, and eschewing the fact that New Orleans has outscored Tampa Bay 72-26 in their two regular season meetings this year. In addition to the spread, 52% are siding with the over of 52 while 68% like Tampa Bay’s moneyline odds of +140.
