The New Orleans Saints were dealt a crushing blow last season as head coach Sean Payton was suspended the entire season for the team's bounty scandal. Payton returns this season, but the football gods have seemingly frowned upon the Saints in a different way. New Orleans 2013 schedule is one of the most difficult in the league with the Drew Brees and company slated to face a host of tough opponents, including the Falcons (twice), Bears, Patriots, Cowboys, 49ers, and Seahawks. Still, the odds makers at 5Dimes are favoring Over nine wins for the Saints at -150 odds and New Orleans is considered one of the contenders for the NFC Championship at +900 odds ($100 wins $900). 2014 Super Bowl Odds at the offshore book have the Saints listed at +1900 odds to win the Lombardi Trophy.

The Vegas based bookmaker, which issued early lines for every NFL game save those in week 17, has the Saints lined as a dog in only four games (at Bears, at Patriots, at Falcons, and at Seahawks).
