Best Saints Betting Lines 2022
A year after the retirement of longtime quarterback Drew Brees, head coach Sean Payton followed suit — or at least stepped away from coaching for the time being — leaving the New Orleans Saints in a new era of uncertainty.
The team’s salary cap situation was among the worst in the NFL heading into the 2022 offseason, but that has been addressed to a degree with a load of restructured contracts.
After the key offseason departures of tackle Terron Armstead and safety Marcus Williams, do they have enough talent left on the roster to compete for a playoff spot in the NFC?

Saints Super Bowl 57 Odds
Saints To Win Super Bowl (+4000)
I’m still bitter about the Saints Super Bowl future ticket I had in 2019 that got ripped up by the infamous missed pass interference call in the NFC Championship Game against the Rams. This team isn’t nearly as good as that one was.
Saints NFC Championship Odds
Saints To Win NFC Championship (+1700)
We don’t know what Jameis Winston and the Saints offense is going to look like without Payton in charge. Getting Michael Thomas back will be a boost, but can Winston continue to avoid turnovers? Who knows.
Saints NFC South Winner Odds
Saints to Win NFC South Championship (+300)
As soon as Tom Brady announced his return from retirement, the Buccaneers were essentially guaranteed another NFC South crown. The Saints have the second-best odds but are clearly a long way off.
Saints Make Playoffs Odds
Saints to Miss Playoffs (-144)
There are just too many question marks across the board in New Orleans. On offense, Winston is coming off a torn ACL, Thomas didn’t play all of last season, and the defense has a lot of new parts.
I definitely wouldn’t be laying the juice here, though, as New Orleans has the potential to put it all together and sneak in as the No. 7 seed in a weak NFC.
Saints Win Total Bets 2022
Saints: OVER 8.5 Wins (-110)
New head coach Dennis Allen has been with the Saints since 2015 and has head coaching experience in the NFL. He’s got a tough task in front of him, but this team should be better than the rebuilding Falcons and Panthers in the NFC South.
The schedule is a bit daunting, with the NFC South facing the AFC North and NFC West, but there are winnable games in the division and against the likes of Seattle, Pittsburgh, and Arizona. 9-8 is certainly feasible.
Saints Prop Bets 2022
Jameis Winston Wins Comeback Player of the Year (+500)
Winston had the Saints in good shape last season, going 5-2 in his first seven starts. Unfortunately, he suffered a torn ACL in Week 8, which forced him to miss the remainder of the season.
Winston threw for 14 touchdowns and three interceptions through his first seven games, including a five-touchdown outing against the Green Bay Packers in Week 1. While it’ll be tough for the 28-year-old to replicate those numbers early on in the 2022 season, he’s still poised to have a great season.
Should Winston have a strong year, he’ll put himself in great position to be named the league’s Comeback Player of the Year. He does face tough competition from the likes of Christian McCaffrey and Derrick Henry, but at (+500) odds, the value is there.
Chris Olave Wins Offensive Rookie of the Year (+1100)
Ohio State product Chris Olave was the third wideout taken in this year’s NFL Draft, but he’s arguably in the best position of the group to succeed in his first year.
Drake London and Garrett Wilson — the two receivers taken ahead of Olave — are going to get average quarterback play at best from their respective signal-callers. Winston at least offers a bit more in the passing game than the Falcons or Jets can.
Olave will have to compete with the likes of Kenny Pickett, George Pickens, and Dameon Pierce if he wants to win this award, but given his ability and favorable situation, there’s good reason to bet on him at (+1100) odds.
How to Bet Saints Moneylines
Betting moneylines is one of the easiest things you can do as an NFL bettor. If you’ve ever predicted who would win a game, that’s essentially what moneyline betting is.
When you bet on a team’s moneyline, it means that team has to win the game for you to win your bet. These lines will change on a weekly basis depending on a team’s matchup, and depending on whether they’re favored or the underdog, you’ll see a plus symbol (+100) or a minus symbol (-110) next to their odds.
Let’s say the Saints are a (-140) favorite against the Falcons. In this case, a $14 bet would win you $10. On the other hand, if New Orleans is a (+140) underdog against the Buccaneers, a $10 bet would win you $14.

How to Bet Saints Spreads
If you want to take things a step further as a bettor, consider getting into spread betting. These give you two evenly priced options to wager on, regardless of how different the two teams are in terms of talent. The spread tells you how many points a team is expected to win or lose by.
Using the example from above, let’s say that the Saints are favored by five points over the Falcons. That would appear as follows at a betting site: Saints -5 (-110) vs Falcons +5 (-110). Each option presents the same value.
If you bet on the Saints to cover the spread, they’d have to win the game by six points or more. However, if the Falcons win or lose by fewer than five points, Atlanta would be the team that covered the spread.

How to Bet Saints Over/Unders
Totals are another common way to bet on NFL games, and they’re easy to understand as well. All you have to do here is determine whether you think the final combined score will come in Over or Under what oddsmakers have projected.
Therefore, if you think a game will be high-scoring and a shootout, you’d likely take the Over. But if you know that one team’s key player will be injured, it may be wise to back the Under instead.
