NFL Football Betting Preview – Saint’s Alive at 22 to 1?
It’s not even June yet, with the exception of Jake Long, the number one pick in the NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins, not a single first-round player has been signed by his respective team. Yet here we are dreaming of gridiron sports betting glory with our BetUS online futurebook wagers. Why? Because like the NFL Network claims, football is indeed 24/7.
Admit it. As a BetUS online sportsbook betting fan, you were glued to your television set as the draft numbers kept rolling by, as the teams kept calling out names, as Mel Kiper Jr. with the great hair kept saying how much in love he was with everybody the Dallas Cowboys selected. Mel sort of likes everybody who gets selected.
But it takes BetUS sportsbook wagering fans more time and energy to find a suitable online future-book wager on one or two or three or even four legitimate teams to win the Super Bowl at overlaid odds.
That’s what the goal will be for a while – – looking into that crystal ball and finding teams that could surprise in the Super Bowl, based on their sports betting odds in the Top Sportsbooks online sportsbook.
The first team that has caught my eye is the New Orleans Saints.
What happened to the Saints last year? They went into the season full of promise. Their defense, on paper, appeared much improved with the addition of Jason David from the Indianapolis Colts and Kevin Kaesviharn from the Cincinnati Bengals. Well, David turned out be the new version of “toast” while Kaesviharn could barely keep up with the hot-shot wide receivers in the NFC. That means that the Saints, coming off a division win and a trip to the NFC Championship game, didn’t make the playoffs.
But well-managed NFL teams don’t just sit on their laurels when they get successful or, more importantly, when they are coming off a down year. They try to get better.
That’s exactly what the Saints did. First, they resigned wide receivers Devery Henderson, Terrance Copper and David Patten, running back Aaron Stecker, tight-ends Eric Johnson and Billy Miller and offensive guard/center Jonathan Goodwin on offense. Then they acquired cornerbacks Aaron Glenn and Randall Gay, defenseive end Bobby McCray and linebackers Dan Morgan and Jonathan Vilma. Finally, they signed quarterback Mark Brunell to back-up Drew Brees as well as center Matt Leher from their rivals, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
But the Saints weren’t done just yet. What they did in the draft was remarkable. They traded up to take defensive lineman Sedrick Ellis who was ranked ahead of the first defensive lineman taken in the draft, Glenn Dorsey, on some boards. Then, they nabbed cornerback Tracey Porter and in the fifth round got a steal in offensive lineman Carl Nicks from the University of Nebraska.
It indeed appears as if the Saints will be alive in the 2008 – 2009 season!
Currently, the Top Sportsbooks online futurebook odds on the New Orleans Saints to win the Super Bowl are 22 to 1. In assessing their chances, I not only have to take into account all of the improvements the Saints have done, but their schedule as well as their chances to win the NFC South Division.
First, their schedule appears extremely difficult. Unfortunately for the Saints they have to play the AFC West this year. So, besides having to suit up against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Atlanta Falcons and Carolina Panthers twice this season (all three teams appear to have improved as well!) the Saints have to play an improved Oakland Raiders squad, the San Diego Chargers at Wembley Stadium in London, and the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs on the road. Finally, the Saints play the Washington Redskins, the Chicago Bears, the Green Bay Packers and the Minnesota Vikings this season.
I hate to say this but the Saints will have to go four and four against the eight teams I’ve highlighted above who aren’t on their schedule to be real contenders for the Super Bowl.
Second, what about their chances of winning the NFC South Division? There is no doubt that the Saints should win the South Division for the simple fact that they might have just made themselves a defense that could shut-down most of their competitors’ offenses.
The main question then is whether or not the Top Sportsbooks online wagering odds on the Saints to win the Super Bowl – – 22 to 1 – – are fair.
In terms of their overall schedule I would have to say no, but in terms of their chances to win their division, I have to say yes. I’m going to set my personal odds line on the New Orleans Saints to win the Super Bowl at 25 to 1. If, for some reason, their odds float up to 25 to 1 before now and the second week of the season, I’ll put a wager on these guys.
