The New Orleans Saints take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for what should be a spooky showdown on Halloween. Let’s take a look at some of the best player prop bets entering this game.

This game is one of the most anticipated ones of the weekend because the last time these two teams squared off was in the divisional round of the playoffs. Saints fans cringe at being reminded of that due to how it ended and knowing also how it ended for the Buccaneers. Not the storybook ending New Orleans was hoping for, as the wicked witch went on to win the Super Bowl.

The Saints are 4-2 entering this one while the Bucs are 6-1. They’ll be the toughest opponent yet on NOLA’s schedule, that’s for sure.

Now that the preview is out of the way, let’s take a look at some of the best prop bets entering Week 8.  All odds are courtesy of WynnBET.

New Orleans Saints Prop Bets

3. Alvin Kamara Rushing Yards (63.5)

One thing the Buccaneers are known for on the defensive side of the ball is their stout run defense. They’ve allowed the fewest rushing yards so far this season (New Orleans has allowed the second-fewest) so it’s going to be a tough task for Alvin Kamara to make an impact as a rusher this week.

What makes Kamara so great is his ability to get open and do serious damage as a pass-catcher, so that should be New Orleans’ game plan on offense. They’ll try to have Kamara run, of course, but the Buccaneers will be ready for it.

Hit the under here.

Prediction: 48 yards rushing — Under (-112)
