Team Outlook and Scouting Report

2019 SEASON PROJECTION

They won more than their current neutral win simulation percentage warrants and the Saints could take a step back next season. Their current odds to win Super Bowl 54 are 8/1, 11.1%. Based on simulations they are a good bet to win the Super Bowl with a 14.1% chance. They are also a good bet to win the conference with a 28.2% chance at 4/1, 20%.

REGULAR SEASON RECAP

Their 13 wins in 2018 exceeded expectations. It was +2.1 above what oddsmakers' money line projected. The season went much better than expected. Their strength was in road games. They went 7-1 on the road and were expected to win 5. They won 6 at home and were expected to win 5.8. Anyone who backed the Saints in all of their games on the money line would have earned a +49 unit profit at a 100 per game risk. Against the spread, they have delivered a +340 profit risking 110 to win 100 (10-6 ATS). The Saints have turned an ATS profit on the road but have lost at home. Below is a recap of all 16 regular games.

They are an elite scoring team based on points per game, despite a relatively low yards per play rank. They are an above average scoring defense, despite a lower TD per play allowed rate.
