The NOLA Saints might still be in alive in the playoff hunt but WynnBET does not like their chances of making it through the postseason and representing the NFC in the Super Bowl.

Who can blame them?

Throughout the season, New Orleans hasn’t exactly been a juggernaut on offense and they’ve been particularly bad ever since Jameis Winston was injured in Week 8. That’s led to Trevor Siemian, Taysom Hill, and Ian Book getting opportunities to start and Hill has been the only one to have success at the helm.

Getting back to WynnBET and the Saints’ odds to win the NFC, though, they currently have +5000 odds to represent the conference in the Super Bowl. Here are all of the NFC teams in the playoff picture’s odds:

  1. Packers (+160)
  2. Buccaneers (+350)
  3. Rams (+450)
  4. Cowboys (+600)
  5. Cardinals (+900)
  6. 49ers (+2000)
  7. Eagles (+2500)
  8. Saints (+5000)

NOLA Saints don’t have good odds to win the conference.

This shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone who’s watched the Saints this season. The defense is good enough to win a Super Bowl but the offense is comically bad. Until Sunday’s win over Carolina, the Saints went two full games without scoring a touchdown. That’s hard to do in today’s NFL but New Orleans did it.

For NOLA to get into the postseason, they have to beat the Falcons on Sunday and hope that the 49ers lose to the Rams. It’s a very plausible situation but even if New Orleans gets into the postseason, it’s unlikely they make it out of the Wild Card round.

Only the Saints and 49ers remain in the “in the hunt” category and the Niners have a slightly better chance at making it to the final game. They have a better quarterback situation and actually have weapons on the offensive side of the ball.

If the Saints do indeed get to the postseason, they’ll have their work cut out for them when it comes to getting to the Super Bowl.
