Once again, the New Orleans Saints had Super Bowl expectations and came up with a loss. Again, they will go back to the drawing board and try to improve their offense and defense in hopes of being in the position that the Buccaneers are in right now — Super Bowl Champions.
The black and gold finished 13-3 in 2019 and lost in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs. The team finished 12-4 in 2020 and lost in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. Last two seasons with Super Bowl in their sights, they don’t complete the mission.
This year, they are looking to do the same thing, but the personnel attacking the mission is vastly different. The biggest difference is that this will be the team’s first mission in over a decade with Drew Brees leading the charge.
In the newest Super Bowl odds for 2021, the New Orleans Saints are now tied for No. 10 with at least four other teams at +2500.
As a result, the Saints’ odds to win the Super Bowl according to MGM Grand have dropped. In January, when we were still unsure of whether Brees would be back for another season, the team’s odds were +1800 to win.
That was good for No. 8 best odds in the NFL. Now that the Saints have released half of their team and their future Hall-of-Fame quarterback has retired, New Orleans’ odds have dropped to +2500 which is tied for No. 10.
They are tied with the Miami Dolphins, Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots, and Arizona Cardinals. As expected, the Chiefs, Buccaneers, Packers, Bills, Ravens, Rams, Niners, Browns, and Colts are all ahead of them with odds greater than +2500.
Some of those teams make sense and others really don’t make sense. The Saints have higher odds than they did before, but if you were to ask any WhoDat Nation fan, we are going to the Super Bowl this year.
