2011 Super Bowl Odds - New Orleans Saints NFL Picks & Predictions:

Written by Tommy Karma:


2011 Super Bowl Odds - New Orleans Saints NFL Picks & Predictions: Heading into the 2011 NFL predictions season the New Orleans Saints share the top spot with the Colts having the best 2011 Super Bowl odds. The New Orleans Saints will be taking the field in this years 2011 NFL predictions season with most of their team intact from last year. The Saints will only have one noticable difference with the absence of Mike Bell. Bell was effective last season in the Saints backfield but ultimately wound up as a secondary option in the Saints running game.

One major positive for the Saint 2011 NFL predictions season was the resigning of defensive safety Darren Sharper. Sharper snagged nine interceptions last year and returned three for TD's and will once again be a defensive "free agent" roaming the Saints defensive secondary. With Sharper returning for the Saints and Drew Brees under center the New Orleans Saints will surely be a force in the 2011 NFL predictions season.

According to the 2011 Super Bowl odds makers the New Orleans Saints official Super Bowl odds are 9/1.

Good to see, but ultimately you don't want to be favored. I'll take it, however.

I agree, being underrated and flying under the radar last year worked in our favor.

The big thing is going to be health this coming season. Our team has good depth, but major long-term injuries can derail any team.

If we stay relatively healthy, without major players missing extended playing time, or being put on IR, I think the Saints have a decent chance of repeating.

I would love to see a Saints/Chargers super bowl. Drew can get some revenge in the big game!!!!! However, I dont think the Chargers improved enough to get there. In a loaded AFC they are a second tier team.

Bingo. In fact health was a major problem in both 2008 (remember 17 team members on IR) and had a significant impact in 2009 (3 losses at the end were without starting corners, then the SuperBowl run when they came back.)
If we stay relatively healthy, without major players missing extended playing time, or being put on IR, I think the Saints have a decent chance of repeating.
In other words our best 53 are the best 53 in the game if they are on the field. No argument there.

If they were still flying under the radar after the Giants and Pats games last year, then the radar was either ancient or broke.
