New Orleans Saints NFL Betting

The 2021 season marks the turning of the page for the New Orleans Saints. Drew Brees lit up the Saints marquee from 2006 through 2020. The 2009 Saints won the Super Bowl but never made it back. The Saints are coming off playoff berths in nine of their 15 seasons with Brees. Jameis Winston takes over for Brees under center. Winston is facing a lot of doubters and scrutiny. But head coach Sean Payton is believed to be the best developer and tutor for quarterbacks in the NFL. However, Winston is no Brees when it comes to ability or study habits. As a result, gamblers see the Saints as a wild card team, with an opening win total of nine on the board.

Sean Payton arrived with Brees in 2006 and is the most successful coach in Saints history. His career record is 143-81, with a win percentage of .638. Payton gets a lot of high marks for his record. However, detractors point to the lack of Super Bowls with his only triumph in 2009.

It is hard to believe that Jameis Winston was the first overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft. Although he made the 2015 Pro Bowl, he has regressed badly since. In 2019 Winston threw 30 interceptions as the starter for the Buccaneers. One year later, Tom Brady quarterbacked that same team to a Super Bowl championship. Winston has a bad reputation for work habits, maturity, and decision-making on the field. Payton is seen as the one man that can fix that.

Running back Alvin Kamara ran for a career-high 932 yards, 5.0 yards per carry, and 16 touchdowns last year. Just as impressive were his 83 catches for 756 yards and five touchdowns.

The Saints had a lukewarm 2021 NFL Draft. Nothing stood out in a year in which New Orleans is trying to manage salary cap issues. Their first round pick was defensive end Payton Turner out of Houston.

Defensively the Saints were actually better than Brees and the offense. In 2020 New Orleans ranked 4th overall and 5th for points allowed.

The Saints have had a fascinating history from the day they were born as a 1967 expansion team. From 1967 through 1986, they failed to make the playoffs. Finally, in 1987 under head coach Jim Mora, they began a new era of winning. The 2009 Super Bowl championship season is the only title in team history.
