It's round two of the New Orleans Saints vs the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as the two will square off on Monday night. The last time these two teams met up was in Week 2 where it was an even game until things imploded for the Saints, as they often do, and the Bucs took advantage to sneak out of the Bayou with a 20-10 win.
Neither team has really set the world on fire since then. The Saints are 4-8 and look like a step up from a high school team while the Buccaneers only have one more win than New Orleans yet are leading the NFC South. That's right -- The Bucs are 5-6 yet are leading the division. They'd host a playoff game if the season ended right now.
I'll provide my prediction and other information below as we brace ourselves for what should be an... interesting game.

Saints vs. Buccaneers odds and prediction
The Saints are shockingly underdogs (sarcasm, of course) as the Bucs are favored by 4.5 points. I predicted earlier this week that the Buccaneers would pull off a 20-14 win with New Orleans scoring a garbage-time touchdown. Sounds realistic, doesn't it?
