New Orleans Saints Betting Guide

Odds, Schedule And Predictions

1

It appears the New Orleans Saints will roll into 2022 with Jameis Winston and Andy Dalton behind center. Despite rumors of the Saints taking a quarterback early in the draft, they made aggressive moves for other positions. They traded up for Ohio State standout Chris Olave and sat for lauded offensive tackle Trevor Penning. Penning is a fix for the massive hole left by the departure of Terron Armstead, who left for Miami this offseason. It’s also the first year under Dennis Allen, the successor to Sean Payton.

Below, you can find New Orleans Saints odds for 2022. Included is a weekly outlook, odds for every game this season, futures, and more.

Saints prop bets

Prop bets are based on individual performance, typically surrounding players. Alvin Kamara was one of the most all-around dominant players in the NFL this past season, making him a bettor’s favorite for prop betting. For example, Kamara’s projected receiving total for the Saints’ Week 3 matchup with the Green Bay Packers was 49.5 yards. That game, he went off for 139 receiving yards, giving those who bet the over on that prop the win.

How to bet on the New Orleans Saints

Moneyline

The moneyline is the simplest of bets, decided by the straight-up winner and loser of each game. Consider the following example:

  • Saints -150
  • Colts +210

The Saints are considered favorites in this matchup (indicated by -150), requiring a $150 bet to win $100 (plus the initial bet back). The Colts are the underdog in this matchup, paying out $310 total for a $100 bet ($210 in winnings). How much either team wins or loses by does not matter in moneyline betting, the payout remains the same.

Point spread

Betting on the point spread is determinant on how many points a team wins or loses by. Take the following example:

  • Saints -1.5 (-110)
  • Bills +1.5 (-110)

In this example, New Orleans is favored by 1.5 points, indicated by “-1.5.” If the Saints win the game 31-27, the Saints (-1.5) win the bet and would have a total payout of $19.09 on a $10 bet ($9.09 in profit). If the Bills keep the game within two or win the game outright– say they win 31-30– the Bills (+1.5) would win, and the payout would be the same as listed above.

Point total (over/under)

The point total refers to the over/under line set by books. This number projects the total number of points scored in a game and, like prop betting, is bet whether one thinks the score will go over or under the set point total. For example, the Saints’ Week 15 showdown with the Kansas City Chiefs had a 54.5 point over/under. The Saints came up short in a 39-32 shootout, resulting in 71 total points. Those that bet the over in the game would have cashed out.

In-play and live betting

Sometimes, the most thrilling and rewarding bets are bets made while games are being played. These are referred to as live bets or in-play bets. Odds are ever-changing during games, which would prove to be fruitful for sharp and prepared bettors. For example, if the Saints (-225) were heavily favored against the Panthers (+190) before kickoff, a payout on a $10 bet on the Saints to win would win just $4.44.

However, say the Saints fell to a big 21-3 deficit in the first half despite controlling the overall game (due to a costly turnover or special teams gaffe). Odds may swing in favor of the Panthers, who may be a -110 favorite at halftime. Taking the Saints to come back and win the game could present plus-odds (say, +130). Should a bettor take New Orleans (+130) at halftime and the Saints pull off the comeback, winners would win $13 instead of $4.44 (plus the initial $10 bet).

This could also be an effective way to “hedge” your bet; say a bettor took the Panthers (+190) in that game, but New Orleans jumps out to a 14-0 first quarter lead and is controlling the overall feel of the game, bettors could hedge by throwing some money down on New Orleans (-270) to return some of the inevitably-lost bet.

Parlays and teasers

You can always string bets together in the form of parlays or teasers. Usually during busy Sundays, bettors can parlay several teams to win or cover against the spread and if all bets are successful, the payouts are multiplied. Teasers function similarly, except they allow bettors to move each point spread to a more favorable line in exchange for diminished odds.

Saints 2021 recap

Record: 9-8, Second in NFC South

Record ATS: 9-8

Over/under record: 7-10

Without Jameis Winston, the Saints offense was stagnant in 2021. Even with Jameis, their offense was limited. Defensively, New Orleans did exactly what they’ve done for the past half-decade and led the NFL in EPA. Demario Davis landed on the All Pro list and their secondary was capable of making opposing passing games ineffective. One thing is clear, though: Taysom Hill is not the answer at quarterback for this team.
