It took the New Orleans Saints a while, but they finally managed to come into their own this season. Back to back wins over the San Diego Chargers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers may have been far from revolutionary, but they’re a start for a team with high expectations of living up to expectations. This Sunday the Saints will look for an upper hand in the quarterback battle of Drew Brees’ and the Denver Broncos’ Peyton Manning. Saints vs Broncos odds in Vegas have Denver 6-point favorites at home against New Orleans while the NFL betting over/under total has been set at 55.5.
The moneyline for Sunday night football has the "broncs" laying -260 at home while a road upset by the "who dat" nation would payout +220 on a $100 wager. Despite the recent success, however, New Orleans still has a long way to go before anybody considers them serious playoff contenders let alone championship ones. Still, according to NFL betting bookmakers, they have a longshot price of 40/1 to win Super Bowl XLVII. With the NFC South’s Atlanta Falcons showing no signs of slowing down in the standings, the Saints would need to rely on one of the two at-large playoff bids rather than banking on contending in the division.
That means a winnable game like this week 8 affair vs Denver could make all the difference. Manning’s Broncos may have struggled with inconsistency so far this season, but are a legitimate threat to turn any moneyline on its head on any given night. On this Sunday night, however, such an upset isn’t necessary, the home side Broncos are coming off a win and have a 14/1 line in Super Bowl futures. NFL betting trends for Saints vs Broncos odds favor Denver at home since recently going 4-2 overall when playing the "broncs" but are also a dismal 4-7-1 against the spread when playing at Mile High.
