Tampa Bay Bucs DFS Spin

Chris Godwin (hip, quad) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice. We haven't seen concern about Godwin's status from the Bucs' press corps, though it is worth noting that he was absent from the Wild Card injury report. Frequently at less than 100 percent health this season, Godwin combined for a modest 9/120/0 across the Bucs' two regular season losses to the Saints. Including last week's playoff win, Godwin is coming off one of his better two-game stretches of the season.

New Orleans Saints DFS Spin

Drew Brees completed 28-of-39 passes for 265 yards and two touchdowns in the Saints' 21-9, Wild Card win over the Bears. In his fourth game back from ribs and lung issues, Brees looks to be clicking on all cylinders with a 5:0 TD:INT mark over the last two weeks. His touchdowns in this one were 11- and six-yard hookups with Michael Thomas and Latavius Murray. The Saints still try to make Taysom Hill a thing at the goal line, pulling Brees off the field in critical situations sometimes, but it is what it is at this point and won't stop. Brees and the Saints host the Bucs in the Divisional Round next weekend. Brees threw six touchdowns to zero picks in two games against Tampa Bay this season.

Bucs vs. Saints Over/Under Prediction

The over has cashed in five of the previous seven meetings between these two teams and is 4-1 in the last five meetings in New Orleans. The over is also 25-9 in the Bucs’ last 34 road games, is 19-7 in their last 26 conference games and is 22-9 in their last 31 games overall. On the other side, the over is 4-1 in the Saints’ last five games versus a team with a winning record and is 25-10 in their last 35 games after accumulating more than 350 total yards in their previous game.
