New Orleans Saints Prop Bets
1. Tom Brady Passing Touchdowns (2.5)
Sticking with passing touchdown totals for this week, let’s turn our attention to the opponent’s quarterback, Mr. Tom Brady. It’s frustrating to admit but Brady only continues to get better with age so it’s shocking that his touchdown total this week is set at 2.5.
Yes, the Saints secondary has been one of the better units in the league but they haven’t had as tough of a test as they will against the Bucs’ receivers. Brady has only thrown for two or less touchdowns in three of his seven games to this point and with this being such a big game, it’s hard not to see him getting at least three here.
While Mike Evans will be going toe-to-toe with Marshon Lattimore — a matchup that’s proved difficult for him — Chris Godwin will still be available and it’s looking like Rob Gronkowski will return to action after missing nearly a month of action.
Brady will have plenty of weapons and he plays well in big games, as we unfortunately know. I feel comfortable taking the over here even against the NOLA defense.
Prediction: 3 passing touchdowns — Over (+110)
