The New Orleans Saints are a team that has been knocking at the door to another Super Bowl victory for each of the last three years without being able to get over the hump. That certainly doesn't have the oddsmakers discouraged about their 2020 season potential, though.
With that in mind, here's a full preview of the Saints' 2020 NFL season potential outcomes and projected achievements, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
Saints Win Total
The Saints are currently projected to win 10.5 games this season, with +110 odds on the over and -120 on the under. That 10.5-win mark is tied with the San Francisco 49ers for the second-highest total in the league and the highest total in the NFC.
Saints Odds to Make NFL Playoffs
New Orleans originally opened with -350 odds to make and +245 odds to miss the 2020 NFL Playoffs, however, those numbers have since regressed to -320 and +270, respectively. At -320, the Saints have the second-best odds to make the playoffs in the NFC and fourth-best odds in the NFL. Those -320 and +270 odds reflect implied probability of a 76.2 percent chance to win make the postseason and a 27.0 chance to miss it in 2020.
Saints Odds to Win NFC South
Even with Tom Brady leaving the New England Patriots for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in free agency, the Saints remain the favorites to win the NFC South once again in 2020, at -125 odds. Those -125 odds reflect implied probability of a 55.6 percent chance to win the division. The remaining contenders rank in this order: Buccaneers (+200), Atlanta Falcons (+600) and Carolina Panthers (+1100).
Saints Odds to Win NFC Championship
Keeping in similar pattern as above, the Saints have the second-best odds to win NFC this year at +700 odds, sitting only behind the reigning NFC Champion 49ers (+480). Those +700 odds reflect an implied probability of a 12.5 percent chance to win the NFC Championship and advance to Super Bowl LV.
Saints Odds to Win Super Bowl LV
New Orleans is certainly a real contender when it comes to winning it all this season as well. The Saints currently boast the fourth-best odds to win Super Bowl LV at +1300, sitting just ahead of the Buccaneers (+1700) and Dallas Cowboys (+1700). Those +1300 odds reflect an implied probability of a 7.1 percent chance of the Saints winning the Super Bowl.
