New Orleans Saints Odds

Written by

The changes keep coming in New Orleans. A year after Drew Brees hung up his cleats, head coach Sean Payton also decided it was time to move on. Dennis Allen has been bumped up to take his place. The team is in the midst of training camp and looking ahead to opening the preseason at the Houston Texans.

The latest futures odds point to the team having a chance at a playoff return, but a push to the Super Bowl seems unlikely. The Saints begin the season on the road at the division rival Atlanta Falcons on Sept. 11. Here’s a closer look at the latest Saints betting odds and lines for the 2022-2023 season.

New Orleans Saints odds: Spread, moneyline and over/under

NFL Preseason Week 1 Odds: Saints take trek to Houston for preseason opener

New Orleans will open the preseason on the road at the Houston Texans on Saturday, Aug. 13 at 8 p.m. ET. Betting odds are out for the game, but keep in mind that preseason games can be very unpredictable.

Playing time for starters will likely be limited, and many may not even play at all. The latest betting lines are pointing to the game being the equivalent of a coin flip.

  • Moneyline: New Orleans was a slight -120 favorite on the moneyline at the release, but the odds have shifted to -110 on both sides.
  • Spread: The spread reflects the toss-up nature of the game. It was initially set at Saints -1 (-110) but the line has since flipped to Texans -1 (-110).
  • Over/Under: Scoring is expected to be rather minimal as the current total sits at 33 points.

Week 1 Saints odds: New Orleans 5-point favorites over division rival Atlanta

The Saints finished last year at 9-8 and in second place in the NFC South, while the Falcons were third in the division at 7-10. New Orleans was in the wild card hunt, but Atlanta was several steps off the pace.

It could be a similar story for the new season. The Saints have a chance to contend for a postseason spot, while online sportsbooks expect a long season for the Falcons.

  • Moneyline: The Saints opened as a sizable -190 favorite on the moneyline against the Falcons. The number has since increased to New Orleans -210 and Atlanta +180. The rivals split a pair of meetings last season. New Orleans has won four of the last five in the series, but the Falcons hold a slight 54-52 all-time advantage.
  • Spread: New Orleans opened as a 4-point road favorite for the opener against Atlanta, but the spread has since climbed to 5. The Saints went 9-8 against the spread last season while Atlanta was 6-10-1.
  • Over/Under: In last year’s two meetings, the teams combined for 52 and 50 points. The scoring expectations are lower this time around at 41 points, which is one of the lower over/unders on the Week 1 slate.

New Orleans Saints odds to win Super Bowl 57

Last Updated: August 12

When DraftKings first released odds on Super Bowl 57 in January, the Saints had a line of +3500. The team’s odds lengthened to +5000 for a while, but they have since shifted back down to +4000. New Orleans is now in now in a logjam for 16th place with the Raiders, Dolphins, Cardinals, and Titans.

On a conference basis, the Saints are eighth among NFC teams at DraftKings, which suggests that the team will at least challenge for a postseason berth. The Bills and Buccaneers are the current favorites for the 2023 Super Bowl.

Saints futures odds for 2022-23 season

Beyond betting on the Saints to win the next big game, you can also place your bets on other key futures, such as how many games the team will win or if there’s a division crown in the future. Here’s a look at the latest future odds for New Orleans.

Regular season win total

DraftKings Sportsbook: Over 8 (-135)Under 8 (+115)

The Saints booked nine wins last season and just missed the playoffs in the NFC. DraftKings has set the bar lower for this season with eight wins. Current betting odds suggest that more action has come in on the team to exceed that mark.

Odds to win the NFC South

BetMGM Sportsbook: +375

The current odds at BetMGM point to the Saints being the second-best team in the division. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-300) are heavy favorites, while the Carolina Panthers (+1000) and Falcons (+2500) project to settle for a battle for third place.

Odds to win the NFC

Caesars Sportsbook: +2000

The Saints are tied for the eighth spot in NFC odds at Caesars with the Minnesota Vikings (+2000). There are three clear favorites at the top of the board: the Buccaneers (+340), Los Angeles Rams (+450), and Green Bay Packers (+450).

Jameis Winston NFL MVP odds

FanDuel Sportsbook: +7500

The QB question appears to have been settled in New Orleans. Winston split the job last season and lost some time to injury. He enters this season as the unquestioned starter, but he’s pretty far down the list of MVP contenders at FanDuel. Josh Allen currently tops the charts at +700.

Season-long player prop odds

DraftKings Sportsbook:

  • Most passing yards: Jameis Winston +3000
  • Most rushing yards: Alvin Kamara +6000
  • Most receiving yards: Michael Thomas +6000

Times are changing in New Orleans with a new head coach in charge. Winston, Kamara, and Thomas can all make things happen, but league-leading yardage totals don’t appear to be in the cards just yet, at least according to the odds board.

Latest news and updates

Dennis Allen, the team’s defensive coordinator from 2015-21, has been bumped up to take over for Sean Payton. New Orleans re-signed Jameis Winston to lock him into the starting role, and added players like Marcus Maye and Tyrann Mathieu in free agency. Departing players include Terron Armstead and Marcus Williams.

At the NFL draft, the Saints had a pair of picks in round one, selecting WR Chris Olave and OT Trevor Penning. In the second round, the team grabbed DB Alontae Taylor. New Orleans was pretty close to a playoff spot last season, and they could be in the hunt once again as the transition from Payton to Allen shouldn’t be too painful.
