NFL Football Wagering – 2008 New Orleans Saints Regular Season Win Total Odds
The New Orleans Saints, (7-9 SU, 6-10 ATS, 10-6 O/U) took a big step backwards in 2007.
They went an unimpressive 7-9 in the Our best Sportsbooks and failed to reach the postseason just one season after capturing the nation’s attention and imagination with its stirring, 13-3 record and ran to the NFC divisional playoffs amid the post-Katrina relief efforts that spanned the globe.
The Saints ranked sixth in the league in total offense, averaging 383.0 yards per game, including the number one passing offense in the league, (285.0 ypg). New Orleans averaged 98.o rushing yards per contest, (20th) and was fifth in the league in scoring, averaging 24 points per contest.
Defensively, the Saints posted some surprising numbers and hope to improve even further. New Orleans ranked fifth in overall defense, allowing just 228.0 total yards per game, including limiting their opponents to a miniscule 63.0 rushing yards per game, (fifth) and just 165.0 passing yards per game, (10th).
New Orleans also ranked fourth in points allowed per game, allowing their opponents just 10 points per contest.
Here is a look at the Saints’ 2008 schedule, followed by my brief analysis on each contest and NFL Free Pick on their overall season win total.

The Redskins are working under a new head coach and fall at home in a thriller. Win.

The improved Broncos win this one at home. Loss.
09/28/08 San Francisco 49ers
The Niners are going to be a work in progress –again. Win.
10/06/08 Minnesota Vikings
The Vikes are the ‘hot’ pick in the NFC, but I like The Saints here at home. Win.

The Saints continue their march in this one. Win.
10/19/08 @Carolina Panthers
The Panthers aren’t what they used to be, but they manage to win her. Loss.

Unfortunately, Drew Brees falls to his former team here. Loss.
11/09/08 @Atlanta Falcons
I see a sweep in the cards against the Falcons. Win.
11/16/08 @Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs have issues and lose this game at home – enough said. Win.
11/24/08 Green Bay Packers
This is one of those games the Packers would have won with Brett Favre. Win.
11/30/08 @Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Bucs get their revenge here. Loss.
12/07/08 Atlanta Falcons
The Saints complete their season sweep of the Falcons in this matchup. Win.
12/11/08 @Chicago Bears
Somehow, someway, I think the Bears win this game. Loss.
12/21/08 @Detroit Lions
Brees and company know they need this win in the worst way and even on the road, the Saints manage to get it. Win.
12/28/08 Carolina Panthers
The Carolina Panthers end their season with a home victory here. Loss.
Analysis: I’ve got the Saints going a firm 10-6 with the possibility of reaching 11 wins. While the Odds may not look that attractive at -170, at least NFL bettors can count on this ‘Over’ being an absolute lock. Take the ‘Over’ in this BetUS NFL Futures wager.
NFL Free Pick: Over 8½ Wins
Saints Regular Season Wins
Over 8½ Regular Season Wins -170
Under 8½ Regular Season Wins +130
