The NFC South-reigning New Orleans Saints opening over/under for win total for the 2020 season is one that could be too good to pass up on.
After three straight 7-9 seasons, the New Orleans Saints have won double-figure games in three straight years, claiming the NFC South and a playoff berth in all three.
Although their playoff adventures haven’t been what the team would’ve hoped for, the Saints have seen high levels of success in the past few seasons, and there’s no reason to think it’ll be stopped any time soon.
But, at what level of success or lack thereof are you willing to bet on? Well, that’s what Caesars Sportsbook is testing in their first win total projections, one that appears rather favorable for the Saints.
According to ESPN’s Joe Klingele, Caesars has placed the over/under for win total at 10.5.
They’re the highest in the division with Tampa Bay coming in at 9 after signing Tom Brady this offseason. The Panthers, who added Saints’ backup Teddy Bridgewater, are projected last in the division with an over/under of just 5.5.
That said, the Saints would’ve beat these odds for three straight seasons, and what’s even better is that this feels like it could be the team’s best roster yet. They finally have help on the edge with Emmanuel Sanders and they brought in Malcolm Jenkins to help sure up the secondary.
Along with the addition of whoever they pick at No. 24 and in the third round and beyond, this team has some real potential. They should easily be the best team in the division and should rival for a Super Bowl.
With this potentially being Drew Brees‘ final season, the Saints should have a little extra motivation to make it count. With Brees still playing at an extremely high level, the fact that he’s over 40 should be little excuse for fans.
Yes, the division did get better but so did the Saints.
