Betting market: The Saints’ ugly loss to Dallas has not phased bettors, as more than 80% of the spread bets are backing New Orleans (check out live data here).

Despite these two teams both having high scoring offenses, 66% of the bets are on the under and the total has fallen from 57.5 to 55.5.

Historically, late-season divisional unders have been profitable and it’s possible the general public is catching on to that trend (more on that below). — Mark Gallant

Weather report: Forecasts are calling for average wind speeds around 11-12 mph (per Sports Insights‘ weather bug), which is a bit less than it was last weekend in Tampa. There’s also a chance of rain, but it doesn’t appear as if it’ll impact much of the game if any. — Gallant

Trends to know: The Saints lost 13-10 to the Cowboys in Week 13. According to our Bet Labs data, Drew Brees is 54-36-2 (60%) against the spread following a loss since 2003. But if the next game is against opponent with a losing record, like the Bucs, he is just 24-20-1 ATS. — John Ewing
