Over the past two offseasons, the New Orleans Saints have lost their future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees and the best head coach in franchise history in Sean Payton. They’re now armed with Jameis Winston and Dennis Allen.
While I’m optimistic about what the future has in store for the Saints, WynnBET doesn’t like their chances of winning Super Bowl LVII and hoisting the Lombardi Trophy next February. New Orleans’ odds to be the world champions are +4000, which, given the circumstances, isn’t shocking.
The teams with the best odds to be Super Bowl champions are the Bills (+600), Bucs (+700), Packers (+1000), Chiefs (+1000), Rams (+1000), 49ers (+1400), Broncos (+1500), Chargers (+1500), Browns (+1750), and Cowboys (+1750).
Meanwhile, New Orleans has some of the worst odds, trailed only by the Commanders, Steelers, Falcons, Panthers, Bears, Jaguars, Giants, Seahawks, Jets, and Texans.
I think the most shocking part of all of this is that the Saints and Lions are both tied with +4000 odds. I like Dan Campbell and feel he’ll turn the Lions in the right direction sooner rather than later but to give the Saints and Lions the same odds feels really disrespectful.
New Orleans Saints Super Bowl LVII odds aren’t great
This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, as the Saints lost both Brees and Payton in the past calendar year. They managed to go 9-8 without Brees but Payton was still the one wearing the headsets and patrolling the sideline. That won’t be the case this year.
Allen hasn’t coached since 2014 when he was the head coach of the Raiders. His tenure in Oakland didn’t go well but a lot of time has passed and Saints fans, for the most part, were excited about Allen succeeding Payton.
What held New Orleans back last season was their putrid offense and they’ve taken the necessary steps to improve things there. They re-signed Jameis Winston, signed Jarvis Landry, and drafted Chris Olave and Trevor Penning in the first round, and they’ll be getting Michael Thomas back.

I get the Saints not having great odds to win the title but they shouldn’t be quite as low on the ladder as they are. This team has the ability to surprise some people in 2022.
