The 2020 NFL season is coming in hot, which means your betting card for the season needs a double-check. We’re going to be going over a copious amount of NFL futures bets, NFL odds, NFL betting picks and NFL predictions for the 2020 campaign. Sportsbooks have released win totals for every team, and we’re going to examine strengths, weaknesses, schedules and make predictions on the over/under. Right now, we’re looking at the New Orleans Saints.
The New Orleans Saints are one of just a handful of teams with a double-digit projected win total. The expectations are as high as ever, and the money is coming in slightly on the under. Some of that is the love being given to Tampa Bay, and some is given to a much improved NFC South. Emmanuel Sanders, Malcolm Jenkins and Cesar Ruiz (rookie) should all be solid role players and are very good additions. All their toughest games this season are seemingly at home. Without fans being a major part, perhaps that is not as relevant.
The majority have the win total set at 10.5, but the Saints were at 10.5 last season and had no problems hitting the over. In fact, New Orleans has had 11 or more wins in three straight seasons, punching tickets for the over in all seasons.

Sean Payton is arguably the best offensive mind in the game of football, and his offenses have given the opposition nightmares for many years. The only thing they are missing is another run at the Super Bowl. Drew Brees may not have his fastball all the time, but he still is among the best passers in the NFL. It helps to have the most dynamic duo out there in Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara. The depth in the passing game is only getting better, and the number of stars they have ranks near the top of the NFL. Cameron Jordan is one of the finest pass rushers in the NFL and can wreck any opposing offensive line. The positives are nearly endless on this squad. They even have one of the better kickers in the game that could come in handy in the postseason.
The postseason demons certainly have been a difficult process as of late. Brees has a Super Bowl ring already, but does he have time for another one? The offense could be a bit more explosive by scoring on fewer plays. Long drives are tough to come away with touchdowns on a consistent basis. A healthy Kamara will be huge in the passing game. The secondary is too talented to give up game-changing plays like it did against the Vikings in the playoffs. This team just needs to focus more during the crucial games so they finally could catch or make their own breaks.
This schedule is super favorable thanks to all the tough games being at home. This team playing in domes just seems to be on point. New Orleans is ready to take advantage of becoming the No.1 overall seed in the NFC. Getting that bye week could be huge if some fans are permitted by the postseason. The scheduling gods definitely did some favors, and while the division will be much improved, New Orleans should be decent-sized favorites in their first seven games. While the schedule gets spicier down the stretch, the balanced Saints are ready for all challengers.
The NFL odds for this NFL futures bet at OddsShopper and most sportsbooks have the Saints between 10 and 10.5 wins. The Saints were picked to win 10.5 games a season ago and hit the over in Week 15. They ended up with 13 wins yet again but sadly had a heart-breaking loss in the postseason for a third straight year. The Saints are going to keep coming back, as their window is shrinking away at a Super Bowl run. With a win total yet again set in double digits, New Orleans is thinking next-level greatness. While the division is improved, their defense alone will keep them in ball games.
It is the offense that is capable of getting better than it was a season ago and allowing them to dominate their division. Brees has outworked and outsmarted defenses for most of his career. Thomas and Sanders should be a legit one-two punch, but Kamara has a chance to get back to his tremendous 2017 and 2018 seasons if he can stay healthy. The offensive line is one of the best out there, and Taysom Hill could still have a vital role as a reliable pass catcher and short-yardage bruiser. This team has it all, but lady luck or added clutchness in the postseason is needed. They are a squad that seems about as confident as it gets to hit their over. Want confidence? They have hit their over in three straight seasons and might have their best squad yet. The over seems to be the play, as the majority of their offensive play makers should flourish yet again this season.
