Saints’ win total line for 2020 among the NFC’s best


Betonline.ag has set the New Orleans Saints’ win total for the 2020 season at 10, according to Chris Burke of The Athletic. The only team in the NFC with a higher total is the San Francisco 49ers who sit at 10.5 wins.

The Saints had a big 2019 season finishing with 13 wins, but they were bounced out in the wild card round by the Minnesota Vikings. Heading into the 2020 season, the Saints have a lot of questions, most importantly who is going to be their quarterback.

Drew Brees, Teddy Bridgewater, and Taysom Hill are all free agents and it’s unclear which guys will be back. Brees has made it clear he will take his time to decide what to do next, but he’s not going to drag it out.

Saints coach Sean Payton said he was going to respect Brees’s time and not pressure him one way or another to make a decision.

“I don’t think the recruitment element is the right way; you really want what he wants,” Payton said via Nola.com. “It’s real important that he arrives at the right decision. I’m sure there are questions about plans for next year, all those things, but it’s important he has time to himself and his family.”

Even though Payton won’t rush him, the sooner the team can have the answer the better.

If Brees isn’t back, it wouldn’t be shocking to see this number go down, even though Hill (assuming he is the next starting quarterback) might be as good of an option as the future Hall of Famer.
