Monday Night Football Odds

Monday Night Football for Week 13 is a meeting of a pair of NFC South teams that have underperformed in relation to preseason expectations. The New Orleans Saints were being viewed as a potential postseason contender, but the club is 4-8 after dropping three of the last four. The Saints will travel to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a team that entered the season with big goals but now stands at 5-6 after another disappointing loss. Here’s a look at the latest betting lines for the Saints vs. Buccaneers for Monday Night Football Week 13 and a peek at the rest of this year’s schedule.

MNF betting odds: Saints vs. Buccaneers

The Saints were in San Francisco on Sunday as 8.5-point underdogs. The hosts controlled the action while holding the visitors completely in check for a 13-0 victory. The Buccaneers were at the Browns as three-point favorites. They held a 17-10 lead heading into the fourth quarter, but Cleveland managed to wake up in a big way to pull out a 23-17 win in overtime.

New Orleans was expecting a pretty smooth transition from Sean Payton to Dennis Allen, but it hasn’t turned out that way. Since beginning the year at 2-3, the club has dropped five of its last seven to fall to 4-8. Tampa Bay opened the season at 2-0 but managed to look out of sorts while doing so. The team’s struggles have metastasized, including a stretch of dropping five of six, to land at a disappointing mark of 5-6.

The Saints are 4-8 against the spread and 6-6 on totals. The Buccaneers check in at 3-7-1 ATS and 2-9 on the over/under. The division rivals squared off in Week 2, with Tampa Bay picking up a 20-10 home win. For all-time meetings, New Orleans holds a 39-23 lead.

Jameis Winston was under center at the start of the season for New Orleans. After he went down to injury, Andy Dalton took over. He remains in the starting role and has thrown for 14 TDs versus seven INTs to date. On the whole, the Tampa Bay offense has been disappointing. Injuries have certainly been a factor, but the unit has also appeared to be completely out of sync on several occasions. Tom Brady has tossed 14 TDs against two picks this year.

Monday Night Football betting results 2022-23

We’ll track the betting results for each MNF game all season long. This year’s slate concludes on Jan. 2, 2023, with what should be a great matchup between the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals.

Week 1: Seattle Seahawks 17, Denver Broncos 16

The much-hyped return of Russell Wilson to Seattle as a member of the Broncos dominated the headlines, but it turned into a defensive struggle that went down to the wire. The six-point underdog Seahawks pulled out the victory, while the total went well under the listed line of 43.5 points. Denver had a chance to win in the final minute, but a 64-yard missed field goal attempt by Brandon McManus put those dreams to rest.

Week 2: Buffalo Bills 41, Tennessee Titans 7

The Bills were heavy home favorites for the first part of an MNF doubleheader. The team delivered, and then some. Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs connected for three TDs as Buffalo won going away by a score of 41-7. The Bills easily covered as 10-point favorites, with the total just going over the 47-point benchmark.

Week 2: Philadelphia Eagles 24, Minnesota Vikings 7

A projected close one in the City of Brotherly Love turned into an impressive win for the hosts. All of the scoring was done by halftime, as the Eagles secured a 24-7 win behind three total TDs from Jalen Hurts. The Eagles picked up the cover as three-point favorites, while under was the correct call on the 49.5-point total.

Week 3: Dallas Cowboys 23, New York Giants 16

The Giants walked onto the field as an undefeated home favorite, but the team exited with its first loss of the season. Cooper Rush led an 89-yard scoring drive in the fourth quarter to break a tie and take the Cowboys to a seven-point win. New York failed to cover as a one-point favorite, while the total went just over the 38.5-point line.

Week 4: San Francisco 49ers 24, Los Angeles Rams 9

This NFC West primetime showdown was competitive through three quarters, but the host 49ers took control in the end. A 52-yard INT return from Talanoa Hufanga sealed the deal for San Francisco, as it exited with a 15-point win. The 49ers covered as two-point favorites, with the total going under the 42-point bar.

Week 5: Kansas City Chiefs 30, Las Vegas Raiders 29

The Raiders had control of the game and went into the half with a 20-10 lead. It didn’t last, however, as Patrick Mahomes and company stormed back to escape with a one-point victory. Las Vegas covered as a 7-point road underdog, while the total went well over the 51.5-point line.

Week 6: Los Angeles Chargers 19, Denver Broncos 16 (OT)

Overtime was necessary to settle this showdown between two AFC West rivals. The Broncos held a 13-10 lead at the half. The kickers handled all of the scoring the rest of the way, with Dustin Hopkins sealing the deal for LA with a game-winning 39-yarder. Denver covered as a four-point road dog, with the total ending up under the 45.5-point bar.

Week 7: Chicago Bears 33, New England Patriots 14

The Patriots walked onto the field as big home favorites, but the Bears had other ideas. A trio of picks and a great outing for Justin Fields were the catalysts for the visitors rolling to a convincing victory. Chicago covered as an 8.5-point underdog, with the total surpassing the 40-point game-time line.

Week 8: Cleveland Browns 32, Cincinnati Bengals 13

The Browns were home dogs for the visit from the Bengals, but they certainly didn’t play that way. Cleveland dominated while getting out to a 25-0 lead heading into the fourth quarter and cruised to an easy victory. Browns +3 was the correct call, while the game-time over/under of 45 points was right on the money for a push.

Week 9: Baltimore Ravens 27, New Orleans Saints 13

The Ravens traveled to New Orleans and took control of the game from the onset. After heading into the half with a 14-3 lead, the team maintained control the rest of the way for a 14-point victory. Baltimore easily covered as a 1.5-point road favorite. The final tally of 40 points sailed well under the line of 46.

Week 10: Washington Commanders 33, Philadelphia Eagles 21

The Commanders traveled to Philadelphia as huge 11-point underdogs to the undefeated Eagles. The end result was one of the biggest upsets of the year so far. Washington moved to 5-5 with the win and got the cover, while the loss dropped Philadelphia to 8-1 on the year. The total of 54 points went well over the game-time line of 43.

Week 11: San Francisco 49ers 38, Arizona Cardinals 10

A pair of NFC West rivals took center stage for MNF in Mexico City, but only one of them was ready for the primetime lights. After being down 3-0 heading into the second quarter, the 49ers dominated the action the rest of the way for a 28-point victory. San Francisco easily covered as a 9.5-point favorite, while over was the correct call on the line of 43 points.

Week 12: Pittsburgh Steelers 24, Indianapolis Colts 17

It was a game of big swings in momentum. The Steelers took a 16-3 lead into halftime, but the Colts came back and were up 17-16 heading into the final frame. Pittsburgh mounted a lengthy scoring drive to go ahead for good and pull out a seven-point win. The Steelers got the cover as 2.5-point road underdogs, while the total went over the listing of 39.5 points.
