Top Week 15 NFL picks
After simulating every game 10,000 times, the model is high on the Saints to cover as 11-point underdogs on the road against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Tampa Bay (10-3) is tied with Green Bay and Arizona for the best record in the NFL and holds the No. 2 seed in the NFC. New Orleans (6-7) is one of five teams tied for the third and final wild card spot in the NFC but loses the tiebreaker to Washington.
The Saints enter Sunday’s game knowing they ran all over the Buccaneers earlier this season. In the 36-27 victory in Week 8, New Orleans had five players combine for 152 rushing yards, averaging 4.8 yards per carry on 32 attempts. That was the second most rushing yards Tampa Bay has allowed this season.
