NFL Week 1 odds: New Orleans Saints open as underdog against Arizona Cardinals

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; At the start of pre-season I checked the week 1 lines, and this one was a 2.5 back then. Surprised oddsmakers didn't view our preseason and injury situation in a poorer light. In bettor's parlance, this is a sucker bet...

The Saints secondary makes Carson Palmer look like Peyton Manning in his 30's. He won't see this little pressure all season.

Michael Floyd is still recovering from breaking 3 fingers and Larry Fitzgerald isn't an elite receiver anymore. I think our secondary can handle them just fine. Carson Palmer is awful so I won't for a second worry about him.

Carson Palmer with time in the pocket can throw darts. Add John Brown at WR and he is a potential deep threat.

PRESSURE will be key. Palmer is no spring chicken w/ bad knees so disrupting his timing will be paramount on Sunday.

Good thing they'll have a rookie starting at right tackle.

were going to lay a 40 burger on their 1 and 1/2 legged QB. ITS what we have to score to allow the defense suckage, still confident brees and company will (COOK) them red birds.

Re: NFL Week 1 odds: New Orleans Saints open as underdog against Arizona Cardinals

OMG thats crazy, Cardinals have the worst OL Ive seen so far. No run game because of it. Palmer spent most of his time in the preseason desperately lobbing the ball up. They might make our defense look like the 1978 steelers steel certain.
Ive never seen them look this bad before. We should be able to beat them or thats a bad sign if we cant.
