New Orleans Saints Player Stats
New Orleans Saints Odds, Bet Types, and Team History
The time has come in New Orleans for life after Drew Brees. A future Hall of Fame QB, Brees retired after 15 seasons with the Saints to cap a 20-year career. New Orleans went 12-4 in his final year, including a 10-game winning streak to secure the NFC South for the fourth consecutive time. The Saints ultimately fell to eventual Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay in the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs. Brees or no Brees, the Saints have a reputation as contenders in this league and still possess many of the pieces needed to compete.
You can’t replace the productivity or leadership of a franchise quarterback, but someone has to start and all signs point to either Taysom Hill or Jameis Winston . Hill got the nod for four games in 2020 when Brees went down with an injury, going 3-1 as the starter. He’s been a bit of a gadget-type player, lining up in the backfield and at tight end. Hill completed 72.7 percent of his passes last season for 928 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions while running for 457 yards and another eight scores on the ground. Winston might be more of a wild card having not started a game since 2019. The former No. 1 overall pick played sparingly behind Brees and Hill during his first year in New Orleans, but don’t count him out of the equation.
Look to running back Alvin Kamara to carry the load offensively going forward. New Orleans has one of the better offensive lines in the league and Kamara is capable of making plays both as a ball carrier and a receiver. He was named second-team All-Pro in 2020 after rushing for 932 yards and 16 touchdowns on top of 83 catches, 756 receiving yards and an additional five touchdowns. Between Kamara, backup Latavius Murray — 656 rushing yards, four touchdowns in 2020 — and Hill’s versatility, it’s not out of the question for New Orleans to become a run-first team.
Star wide receiver Michael Thomas is not expected to be ready for the start of the season, leaving the Saints awfully thin at the position. Behind Kamara, the top producing receiver back in 2021 is Tre’Quan Smith, who caught 34 passes for 448 yards and four touchdowns.
Defensively, seven starters return for the Saints along with numerous contributors. Demario Davis is fresh off an All-Pro nod after racking up 119 total tackles, five pass breakups and four sacks. While the core of this unit is aging a bit, it continues to produce. Defensive end Cameron Jordan had 7.5 sacks last year while safety Malcolm Jenkins registered three interceptions, 2.5 sacks and ranked second on the team with 88 total tackles. New Orleans has also received strong production from some of its younger players as well. Defensive backs Marshon Lattimore and C.J. Gardner-Johnson each recorded double-digit pass breakups in 2020.
The Saints open the 2021 NFL season at home versus the Green Bay Packers.
New Orleans Saints & Caesars
The New Orleans Saints and Caesars announced a blockbluster partnership in 2021. The 20-year deal rebranded the Saints' iconic home field as the Caesars Superdome.

Saints Team Rivals
New Orleans has been the team to beat in the NFC South for some time now. The Saints went 12-4 in 2020, winning the division for the fourth consecutive season. While the franchise has had its share of success within the division, it hasn’t translated to the postseason. That title belongs to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who finished 11-5 and earned a wild card berth before eliminating New Orleans on the way to a Super Bowl title. Behind those two teams, the Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons had two of the worst records among NFC teams. While Tampa and New Orleans finished at the top last year, both Carolina and Atlanta are just a few years removed from competing in the division. A few moves here and there could make things interesting once again.
Betting on the New Orleans Saints
New Orleans Saints Point Spreads
Betting point spreads are wagers based on the expectation that a team will win or lose by a certain number of points. Last season the Saints had an average margin of victory of 12.3 points. That was good enough for a positive 9-7 record against-the-spread (ATS).
Here’s an example:
- Falcons +5.5 (+110)
- Saints -5.5 (-110)
In this situation, the Falcons are 5.5 point underdogs against the Saints. If New Orleans wins the game by six or more points, a $100 wager on the Saints would come with a payout of $90.91. If Atlanta won the game outright or lost by five points or less, the same $100 wager would net $110 plus the original $100 for a total of $210.
New Orleans Saints Over/Unders
Over/under, also called point total, is a wager placed on the combined scoring of a single game. Bookmakers come up with a number and you can either bet the over or — you guessed it — the under. Here’s how it works:
Let's say the Saints play the Buccaneers and the over/under is set at 58 points. A wager on the over would require New Orleans and Tampa Bay to score 59 total points or more to win. Betting the under is an expectation that the two teams would score 57 or fewer points. It's also possible for the betto push, which would happen if the game finished with exactly 58 points scored.
In 2020, New Orleans had the fifth-best scoring offense in the league at 30.1 points per game to go with the fifth-best scoring defense, allowing 21.1 points per game. The Saints were among the league’s best teams at exceeding point totals, hitting the over in 62.5% of their games last season.
New Orleans Saints Moneylines
The moneyline is as straightforward as it gets when it comes to betting. The only thing to do here is pick the winner. Check out this example:
- Panthers +200
- Saints -240
The minus (-) and plus (+) signs distinguish the favorite from the underdog, making New Orleans the favorite in this scenario. Odds can be understood more clearly if you think in terms of $10 or $100 increments. A wager on the Saints odds would mean every $24 bet nets $10. And it's the opposite for underdogs: Here the Panthers moneyline was set at +200, meaning a $10 wager would profit $20.
Moneylines are also commonly used when making parlays, which are multiple bets tied into one. Let’s say you bet the Saints moneyline and a -2.5 point spread, New Orleans would need to win by three points or more for that bet to be successful. The risk is greater, but so is the reward with increased odds. Use our Odds Calculator to calculate any bet amount or conversion.
New Orleans Saints Props
Player props are wagers on a single player, and they're tied to a single stat found in the box score for a game or even the whole season. These are among the most fun to bet on, especially if you're already playing fantasy football and like the player-specific focus it offers. Check out a hypothetical example below:
- Alvin Kamara 2021 rushing yards: 1,000
Let’s break it down a bit. Kamara averaged 62.1 rushing yards per game in 2020, the best mark of his career Assume that average goes up a bit to 65 yards per game in 2021. Kamara would be at 975 yards if he played 15 games again. He’d be over the mark if he played 16 games. And don’t forget, the NFL added an extra regular season game, giving Kamara plenty of leeway to hit 1,000 yards rushing at this hypothetical pace.
Futures are somewhat similar to prop bets in the way that both are monitored over the course of a season. Except most future bets are focused on end of season success. Examples of futures are:
- New Orleans Saints odds to win the NFC South
- New Orleans Saints odds to win the NFC
- New Orleans Saints odds to win the Super Bowl
- Alvin Kamara’s odds to win Offensive Player of the Year
- Cameron Jordan’s odds to win Defensive Player of the Year
If you think the Saints are going to pick up where they left off without Drew Brees or might go even further than that, this is the place to be. For a full list of NFL futures, click or tap here.
