Tampa Bay Buccaneers +3

The New Orleans Saints owned Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during the regular season as they went 2-0, but the Buccaneers have looked very good as of recent and you can’t count out a Brady led offense in the playoff. The Buccaneers have one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL with Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Ronald Jones II leading the charge, and they will need to have a big game in order to keep the New Orleans offense off the field. The Bucs defense should be back at full strength with David White coming off the injury list, and their biggest strength this season has been their front 7 which should eliminate Kamara on the ground as well as limit the time Brees has in the pocket. I think Brady still is one of the top QBs in the NFL and he will prove it here. Final Score Prediction, Tampa Bay Buccaneers win and cover ATS 27-24.
