New Orleans Saints NFL Week 4 Betting Lines

New Orleans Saints NFL Betting Online

The New Orleans Saints not only lost in gut-wrenching fashion to the Green Bay Packers in Week 3 NFL betting action, but also lost starting QB Derek Carr for an undetermined amount of time due to his turnstile of an offensive line failing to protect his blindside. The situation equates to Jameis Winston nestling back in under center, and that might not be in the best interest of the franchise considering he was able to do next to nothing in relief last week. With an ample amount of practice time to get his body and mind ready to compete, Dennis Allen will be praying a completely different form of Winston returns to the huddle that’s determined to lead the team to a crucial divisional win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the online sportsbook. If not, the injury bug will have laid claim to another victim and possibly ruined the Saints season for the second time in as many years.

New Orleans Saints Week 4 Matchup

On Sunday, October 1, 2023, the New Orleans Saints will host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from the Caesars Superdome in New Orleans, LA. Kickoff time is set for 1 p.m. ET with television coverage on FOX. The lookahead betting line for this divisional showdown hit the board with the Saints laying 3.5-points and the total set 40.5. Whether it’s because respected sharp money accounts hit the Bucs at the opener or because Derek Carr was announced as out after the opener hit the board, the betting line for this AFC South showdown has been hit with some reverse line movement. Though New Orleans has taken in 53 percent of the bets and 63 percent of the money, the betting line has fallen a half-point down to the key number. Though New Orleans has played to three straight low scorers to kick off the 2023-24 NFL betting season with an average of 34.3 points scored, the O/U has remained unchanged even though 60 percent of the bets and 71 percent of the money booked has come in favor of a low scorer. Linemakers are firmly aware of the turnover machine otherwise known as Jameis Winston now handling the QB1 duties. The Saints have held the upper hand in the recent rivalry having come out on top in seven of the last ten overall meetings (8-2 ATS) with the O/U split right down the middle. The same type of dominance has occurred when hosting it with N’awlens 7-3 SU and 6-4 ATS the last ten times with the over cashing in all but three times and an average of 56.0 points scored.

New Orleans Saints Week 3 Recap

Anyone that bet the Saints in Week 3 NFL betting action was forced to swallow a bitter pill. New Orleans looked dominant midway through the third quarter leading 17-0 with possession of the pigskin. Things took a dramatic turn for the worst soon after when Derek Carr was whipped to the ground by Packers LB Rashan Gary and was unable to shield himself while protecting the ball. The end result was an injury to his AC joint that knocked him out of the game as well as the foreseeable future. Jameis Winston was called upon in relief and the offense subsequently stalled. The defense would ultimately allow Green Bay to rattle off the game’s final 18 points which left all but those that got the best of the number to cry in their beer. The Saints went off the board 1.5-point favorites much to the dismay of the online sportsbook with Green Bay garnering 56 percent of the bets and money. It’s tough to truly tell how they made out however with the number jumping all over the board. Before being sidelined, Carr played to a 104.6 QB rating by way of completing 13-of-18 passes for 103 yards and a 1:0 TD/INT ratio with Chris Olave once again proving to be his most effective target after turning his eight receptions into 104 yards and 13.0 yards per reception. Pass protection continues to be a major sticking point for the offense. The four sacks allowed to Green Bay increased the total to 12 overall – that’s 4.0 per game! New Orleans can’t afford to lose any more quarterbacks so this problem area better be rectified – STAT!

Founded in 1967 as an expansion team, the New Orleans Saints have a colorful history of ineptitude and glory.

In the initial years of the franchise, the Saints could not find their way. New Orleans did not post a winning record until the 1987 season. Those two decades of losing featured one of the most popular players in franchise history.

Quarterback Archie Manning remains a legend to this day. Manning was a star on some really bad teams, and Saints fans never stopped appreciating his efforts against hopeless odds.

Jim Mora was the head coach of the first serious iteration of the Saints. Mora led the franchise to its first four playoff berths. New Orleans was a serious contender for the first time in franchise history in the Mora era that ran from 1986 through 1995.

Sean Payton took over the team in 2006 and led the Saints to their most successful period in team history. From 2006 through 2020, the Saints made the NFL Playoffs nine times. New Orleans won the 2009-10 season Super Bowl. That was the only title in franchise history.

Payton was the head coach during the infamous Bountygate scandal and was suspended for an entire season. But by the time he retired, all of that was forgotten. Payton partnered with quarterback Drew Brees for one of the NFL’s most prolific offenses. Both coach and quarterback are likely Hall of Fame-bound, Gayle Benson, the widow of deceased legendary owner Tom Benson, remains the team's owner. John Mecom Jr. was the original owner that put colorful but losing teams on the field.
