One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Las Vegas decided that quarterback Derek Carr had outlived his usefulness, and they unceremoniously dumped their former franchise quarterback this offseason.
But while Carr was looking up at Patrick Mahomes and Justin Herbert in the AFC West, in the NFC South he is looking down at Desmond Ridder, Bryce Young, and Tampa Bay’s quarterback combo of Baker Mayfield and Kyle Trask.
The Saints are now the favorites in the NFC South, and Carr is the favorite to win his first division title.
Let’s see if New Orleans Saints have what it takes to back the betting lines to win the Super Bowl.

Saints Futures Bets
Super Bowl Champions (+3500)
There are a lot of teams between the Saints and the Super Bowl championship. A total of 13 teams have shorter odds than the Saints. But at +3500 the Saints are ranked higher than the Vikings and Giants, who were both playoff teams a year ago. So it’s not such a longshot.
NFC Champions (+1300)
While there are 13 teams deemed to have a better chance at winning the Super Bowl, only five NFC teams have shorter odds to win the conference. The Saints, at +1300, are ahead of the Vikings, Giants, Packers, Bears, Commanders, Rams, Cardinals, and all three of the other NFC South teams.
When the Saints last won the NFC in 2009, their preseason odds were +1100.
NFC South Champions (+115)
Every team in the NFC South will have a different Week 1 starting quarterback from a year ago, and the only team that has definitely made an improvement at the position is New Orleans. Carolina and Atlanta might be better, but we won’t know that answer for sometime.
Because of that change at QB, a great young receiver in Chris Olave, and a top 10 defense, the Saints are the favorite to win the division, paying just above even money.
Saints Win Total (9.5)
The baseline for the Saints win total this season is 9.5, with the over paying +105. But if you want to get more aggressive than that, you can take the Saints to go over 11.5 regular season wins and get +270 for a winning bet.
Go really crazy, pick the Saints to go over 13.5, and the odds are +750.
Not as a promotion of that particular bet, but just as a bringer of facts, it is worth noting that according to projected win totals for 2023, New Orleans has the easiest schedule in the NFL.
Weekly Saints Betting
We haven’t seen this alleged better Saints team on the field, but oddsmakers are ready. After making the Saints favorites in just seven of their 17 games last season, the early odds have them favorites in 10 of their 17 games in 2023.
In their six regular season games against the NFC South, the Saints are the early favorites in five of them. The only game in the division when they will be getting points is at Carolina in Week 2. And considering that the game on September 18 will be only the second game in Bryce Young’s career, that may be a really good time to take the points.
