NFC South Divisional Odds

  • New Orleans Saints: -140
  • Atlanta Falcons: 3-1
  • Carolina Panthers: 15-4
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers: 16-1

Drew Brees’ window is closing, but oddsmakers still expect the New Orleans Saints to finish atop the NFC South this season.

The Saints check in at -140 at the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas, while the Atlanta Falcons are expected to be the closest contenders at 3-1.

Carolina, a trendy pick to improve upon its 7-9 record from last season, is 15-4 in Vegas, while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and new head coach Bruce Arians are the least likely to win the NFC South at 16-1 odds.

NFC South Best Bet

According to The Action Network’s NFL model, which simulated the 2019 season 10,000 times using player and team statistics adjusted for Strength of Schedule, the New Orleans Saints win the Super Bowl 11.2% of the time.

However, their current odds of 10-1 convert to an implied probability of 9.1%, indicating there is value taking the Saints to emerge victorious in Super Bowl 54.

The window is certainly closing for 40-year-old quarterback Drew Brees, but New Orleans possesses enough of talent on the defensive side of the ball and the offensive weapons to make Brees’ 19th NFL season a potentially historic one.

If you’re looking for smart Super Bowl 54 bets, you can do worse than the Saints at 10-1 or better.
