Closing out Week 13 of the NFL season is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers hosting the New Orleans Saints.
The Buccaneers are coming off a terrible loss against the Cleveland Browns, while the Saints were shut out 13-0 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Here, we’ll look at the best bets for this game.
We think the Buccaneers will win this game, but with this spread at three and the hook, we’ll give the edge to the Saints here.
The Buccaneers' offense has a tendency lately to just stall out. In contrast, the Saints have some great playmakers in wide receiver Chris Olave and running back Alvin Kamara.
Olave will match up with Buccaneers cornerback Jamel Dean which will be a good matchup, but the Buccaneers' defense will have some issues with Kamara.
However, the Saints do have cornerback issues. None of them have played well this season, which opens up the middle of the field for wide receiver Chris Godwin out of the slot.
Also, Buccaneers running back Rachaad White is coming off a 23-touch game, including nine receptions.
Given the Saints' cornerback issues and someone out of the backfield in White that’s producing, we think the Bucs will squeak one out at home.

The last time these teams met, they combined for just 30 points. However, in their second game as a divisional matchup, there should be a bit more action here.
Granted, both teams' offenses were terrible last week.
As mentioned, though, the Saints have serious coverage issues, while the Saints have a dynamic running back and a great, young, rookie wide receiver.
There are the weapons here to make it happen—it’s just a matter of whether the quarterbacks can execute the offense and score the points.
These two teams know each other quite well, so there should be some points scored here.
