NFL New Orleans Saints vs New England Patriots Preseason Odds
New Orleans Saints Look to Make it 2-0 in NFL Preseason
Fresh off their 17-10 Hall of Fame Game win over the Arizona Cardinals this past Sunday, the New Orleans Saints remain on the east coast and get right back at it tonight. This is strange scheduling and one has to wonder if it’s another poke at the already beleaguer Boys from the Bayou. NFL teams rarely play on three days rest in the regular season. This is the preseason and back-to-back road games for the Saints.

We get our first look, albeit a short one, at the New England Patriots tight end scoring machine as they battle the Saints tonight. Perennial favorites, not only in the AFC East division, but in the league as a whole, Bill Belichick and the Brady Bunch are +300 favorites to win the 2012 AFC Championship – just ahead of the Houston Texans who are +500 second chalk at the BetOnline.com sports wagering website.
Even though it’s just preseason, and the games don’t count for much to the teams, if you are betting on them they mean everything. Fatigue is slightly less of a concern here, because the stars don’t play much during the preseason contests, but the boys in the trenches still play a lot. That’s where the Patriots gain an edge, as well as being at home, and we will back them over the Saints at -3 (-125) at the BetOnline sportsbook.
