Buccaneers vs Saints Prediction & NFL Odds for Week 8
- The Saints pass defense will cause some havoc for Tom Brady, but not enough to throw him off of his game

- Each team will cause at least 1 turnover
The New Orleans Saints (4-2) will host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-1) in a pivotal Week 8 matchup at the Superdome in New Orleans.
Tom Brady continues to defy expectations as he currently leads the NFL in passing yards and will look to carry on with his success against the Saints. For New Orleans, Alvin Kamara is a dual-threat running back who is coming off a game where he produced 179 yards from scrimmage despite playing in the Seattle rain.
This game features two quality teams with plenty of star-power, and we should be in store for a thrilling ballgame on Sunday.

Buccaneers vs Saints Prediction: Spread
The Buccaneers offense has been extremely impressive this season. Even with Antonio Brown likely out with an injury, the duo of Chris Godwin and Mike Evans more than makes up for his absence especially with Tom Brady slinging the football.

New Orleans will make this a competitive game because of their strong defense and running back Alvin Kamara. While the defense won’t be able to flat out stop Tampa Bay, it might be able to contain their high-powered passing attack. Kamara will likely rack up over 125 yards of total offense and probably add a score or two as well.
I like the Bucs in this game, but don’t be surprised if New Orleans makes them work hard to earn the victory.
- Free Prediction: Buccaneers -3.5
Buccaneers vs Saints Prediction: MoneyLine
The Buccaneers know how to stop the run, which could present a challenge for Kamara. However, Kamara’s pass-catching ability will still allow him to present an obstacle for the Bucs defense. Even with the loaded Tampa Bay offense, the most intriguing matchup in this game will be the Bucs defense against Kamara.
However, it will be the Buccaneer’s offense that leads them to the win.
- Free Prediction: Buccaneers -185
Buccaneers vs Saints Prediction: Total
The original total is listed at 51. However, with two offenses that know how to score the ball, there is a solid chance the over hits. Yes, the defenses are solid on both sides, but this is a game that features arguably the best quarterback and running back in the game this season.
While it is possible the defenses stand strong, I expect this to still be a fairly high-scoring affair.
