TOM STRYKER’S FREE FOOTBALL SELECTION SUNDAY, OCTOBER 31ST
#274 NEW ORLEANS (+4) over Tampa Bay at 4:25 PM EST
Off that less than impressive Monday night road win at Seattle, New Orleans returns to the Big Easy completely focused on the game they’ve had circled in red on their calendar since January 17th, 2021. The Saints will be out for a little playoff revenge when the Super Bowl Champions come to town and Tampa Bay’s former QB1 Jameis Winston will be the guy that helps key this upset victory.
A quick peek at the History Book shows that the Saints have dominated this division rivalry posting a proud 15-5 SU and 12-8 ATS record in the last 20 meetings. Equally impressive, division underdogs that won straight up on the Monday Night road in their last contest hold a lucrative 14-6 ATS record in their last 20 tries. In addition, division home dogs that hold a team won/loss percentage of .501 or higher own a rewarding 34-16-3 ATS mark provided their opponent enters off a blowout win of 20 points or more. If our “play on” side takes the field off a straight up win, this system tightens up to a powerful 27-11-2 ATS including an elite 25-6 ATS if they hold a team won/loss percentage of .600 or higher.
It’s not going to be easy knocking off the Goat with a Bucs squad that has ripped off 14 straight up wins in their last 15 games. However, since 1980, NFL guests that won their last game at home by 35 points or more own a weak 24-41-5 ATS tally provided they are lined up against a foe that played on the road in their previous battle. If our “play against” road warrior is fighting a division foe, this situation crumbles to a woeful 11-22-2 ATS including a horrible 7-17-2 ATS if they tackled a non-division opponent last. That spells trouble for the defending Super Bowl Champions.
As a competitive underdog priced between +3.5 and +9.5, the Saints have been a solid investment inking a strong 15-3 ATS mark in their last 18 tries. Head coach Sean Payton’s troops will get their payback here. Take New Orleans. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
