New Orleans Saints Prop Bets

2. Jameis Winston Passing Touchdowns (1.5)

Jameis Winston has done well during his six games as the Saints starting quarterback and that doesn’t get said enough. It’s not his fault that his receivers are worthless and that his coach isn’t letting him cut loose.

With that said, 1.5 is a good number to set Winston’s touchdowns at because it’s been hard for his receivers and tight ends to get to the end zone.

What I’m taking into account here, however, is that Kamara is going to have a massive day as a pass-catcher due to how stout the Bucs’ run D is. New Orleans is going to get Kamara going in the receiving game and he and Winston will pad the stats this week. It’s the revenge game for Winston, after all.

All Winston has to do is get to two touchdowns for this to be worth your money and with Kamara, that’s attainable. Marquez Callaway has also been reliable in the red zone, so Winston should be looking his way as well.

It might seem risky but the Bucs’ secondary has allowed the ninth-most passing yards thus far. Bet on Winston here and hopefully, you won’t regret it.

Prediction: 2 passing touchdowns — Over (+105)
