Two top preseason Super Bowl picks, a sleeper pick and a lost cause – that’s how NFC South futures betting shapes up in 2020. And it will be interesting for sure. Tom Brady and Drew Brees will be playing each other twice this season. It is like a dream come true for football fans.
This division will most likely be a three-team race, with the Saints opening the season as -130 favorites and Tampa Bay not far behind. See the latest at BetRivers Sportsbook.
New Orleans Saints (-130)
The Saints have won 37 regular season games over the past three seasons, which is the most during that time span. However, their success did not translate into a single Super Bowl appearance.
Drew Brees is 41 heading into this season, and this may be his last shot at another Super Bowl. Their offense will look very similar to last seasons, but they will insert two new starters – free agent signing Emmanuel Sanders and their first-round pick Cesar Ruiz at Center.
On defense, this team will have a new leader in Malcolm Jenkins. The star Safety was signed in free agency, and looks to be the anchor of this defense. The Saints defense was solid last season, as Cam Jordan was spectacular again. They ranked 11th in defense efficiency.
