2010 NFC South Lines / NFL Preview

NFL Division Preview – NFC South

In our quest to be the ONLINE LEADER in NFL Gambling & NFL Handicapping information we’re way out ahead of the rest with our 2010 Divisional Previews for all 8 NFL divisions.

We will be covering the entire off season for each team and giving you a preview of the upcoming 2010 season with updates from now through kickoff of Week 1 of the NFL 2010/2011 Season.

The lines are out for the early favorites to win each NFL Division and it is not too early to start considering your NFL Futures bets. After all, you just may find that your fave is good value right now.

The New Orleans Saints are still the class of the NFC South although they are an injury away from finishing second or third in the division. The Falcons are thought to have the best chance to unseat the Saints with Carolina and Tampa Bay being the poor cousins in the division.

Atlanta may be ready to take the next step, but overcoming the defending Super Bowl Champs will be incredibly tough.

New Orleans Saints: -165

The New Orleans Saints were the most dangerous team in the NFL last year. Not only did they have the top scoring offense in the NFL (31 points per game), but they also had the top scoring defense! The Saints were able to retain most of their Super Bowl winning team and added Corner Back Patrick Robinson in the draft.

The offense will be fine this year and year two of Greg Williams working with the defense should help solidify a unit that improved immensely in year one last year. The Saints are the class of the division both offensively and to some extent, the defense.

The only thing working against the Saints in 2010 is the fact that teams will certainly raise their games in order to beat the defending champs. Their schedule will be tougher and the division appears to have gotten a little better. The Saints, barring injury should still run away with the division.

Atlanta Falcons: +200

The Atlanta Falcons have to hope that injuries don’t rear their ugly heads once again this year. Last year, they looked like contenders, and then Michael Turner got injured. Their offense still features Matt Ryan, Roddy White and Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez along with battering ram Michael Turner. The defense still has some holes despite the acquisition of cornerback Daunte Robinson. John Abraham is a beast on the defensive line but outside of him, the pass rush appears suspect.

The Atlanta Falcons should be better this year but their inability to add a secondary receiver and another stud on the defensive line raises some questions. If Michael Turner ever learned to catch passes out of the backfield, their chances to win the division would increase substantially.

The Falcons are a good team but they are not quite elite yet. If they can avoid injuries and if Matt Ryan can develop into an upper tier quarterback, the Falcons should make the playoffs but a division win appears unlikely.

Second place in the division is more realistic.

Carolina Panthers: +600

The Carolina Panthers will still have one of the most feared running games in the NFL. DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart will terrorize once again but the fact still exists that they will rely on Matt Moore at quarterback. Julius Peppers departure leaves a big hole on the defensive line and it will be very difficult to overcome.

The Carolina Panthers are definitely in a rebuilding phase. They still have Steve Smith catching the ball (although he broke his arm in off season training), but they have no secondary receiver to take the pressure off of him. The offense is middle of the pack even with a strong running game and the defense has taken a step back this year. A .500 season would be a success and thanks to Tampa Bay they will not finish last in their division. Third place.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: +2000

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers surprised last year but don`t expect a repeat this year. Owner Malcolm Glazer has amassed a huge debt and his money troubles have carried over to the football club. They have a young quarterback, no receivers (their only threat Antonio Bryant bolted to Cincinnati) and a terrible defense.

Tampa is a young team in a tough division. They have a chance to be the NFL Train Wreck this season and are destined to finish last. Fourth place for the poor Bucs.

The NFC South maybe the easiest division to bet on. New Orleans is bound to have another great year. Betting against them to win the division is an exercise in futility. Atlanta might make the playoffs but won’t likely challenge the Saints for the division crown.
