NEW ORLEANS – Many were quick to count out the New Orleans Saints with the retirement of QB Drew Brees at the end of last season. However, they have filled their gaps nicely with Jameis Winston under center and have a 3-2 record so far this season.

With the Saints hanging in there with the rest of the league, their Super Bowl odds have been reflecting that as well, as they have +3500 odds.

Top Dog Defense

The New Orleans Saints defense has been relatively solid over the years having finished in the Top-15 over the last five seasons and were ranked fifth last season.

This year, the Saints are currently leading the league for the fewest points allowed per game, having allowed just 91 total points at 18.2 points per game. They are also second in rushing yards allowed per game with just 79 yards allowed each week. They have allowed the fourth-least total yards this year with only 1,770 yards allowed.

It is worth noting that the Saints have not dealt with any serious injuries to their defense this season either, which is going to help them continue to wreak havoc on opposing teams.

Offense Coming Full Circle

Although their offense is still a work in progress, they have been trending in the right direction. They have scored 3+ touchdowns in all but one game this season. Jameis Winston has been playing some of the most efficient football of his career with 892 passing yards,12 touchdowns, and only three interceptions.

Some may be forgetting that the Saints have one of the best utility running backs in the league in Alvin Kamara, who has recorded over 500 rushing and receiving yards in every season of his career.

The X-Factor here though is that Michael Thomas is returning to their receiving core. Thomas is one of the league's elite receivers, as he has led the NFL in receiving in his last two healthy seasons, and finished third the season prior.

If Thomas can come back from his foot injury and return to top playing form, the Saints' odds could offer great value and a great payout to sports bettors willing to take a chance on them.
