Here's the science.
The Saints are on fire. After starting the season looking completely lost at 0-4 they have dug themselves out of that hole and are
You know what, let's check the NFC South table out right now. Come on.
|Tampa Bay||5||4||0||.556||164||144||Won 1||2-0||4-2|
|New Orleans||4||4||0||.500||173||186||Won 4||1-2||3-2|
Carolina are a mess, an ugly mess. Tampa have huge issues, whilst the real form team, who are riding a four game winning streak, are the Saints. In terms of taking the NFC South by the reins, the combined record of the Saints remaining opponents is a NY Jets like 23-42.
This is where it gets interesting.
The Saints are a whopping 40-1 with some bookies (contact me to find out who!), to win the Superbowl. If they take the pathetic NFC South, who's going to stop them, the Lions? Sorry Dad, the Saints would win that one 52-50. What I am talking about here is momentum, the Saints are playing well, they seem to have gelled again offensively, with Drew Brees and Reggie Bush leading the way impressively.
In terms of value, that 40/1 is pretty tasty. Particularly if you are one of those bitter, twisted 'anti New England' people that are absolutely hating the 2007 NFL season that's unveiling before your narrow, angry eyes.
Speaking of the Patriots, 4/5. That's right. 4/5.
