Trend points to the over in the Buccaneers-Saints matchup
Wed, Jan 13th 9:08am EST
The over/under for Tampa Bay's Divisional Round matchup against the New Orleans Saints is 52 points, per BettingPros consensus odds. After opening at 51.5 points, the total dipped quickly to 51 before being bet up a full point to 52. Bettors will likely be speculative about this trend considering the Buccaneers have only been road underdogs once this season. However, that game was a Week 1 matchup at New Orleans, and saw 57 combined points scored. Thus, over backers will point to the fact that the 57 points were scored despite the fact that neither team had much of a preseason to get acclimated. In addition, Tampa Bay's roster looks a little different since then, as Antonio Brown was not on the team and Leonard Fournette only had five carries as he was cautiously being worked into their new system early in the season.
