It’s not a secret, but the black and gold are poised to make another postseason run this season. The offensive weapons are there, the defense added new faces, the draft was a success, and as long as Sean Payton is the head coach and Drew Brees is the quarterback, you can’t count them out. Courtesy of our friends at Bovada, we have the latest odds for the New Orleans Saints and their 2014 playoff chances.

You may remember hearing about Bovada, who is a huge force in sports betting, casino, poker, and horse racing, when I touched on the New Orleans Saints Super Bowl & Division Odds. Bovada simply asks:

The Saints rank as the seventh most likely team to make the playoffs this year:

  1. Denver Broncos (1/5)
  2. New England Patriots (1/5)
  3. Seattle Seahawks (4/13)
  4. Green Bay Packers (5/11)
