Las Vegas makes New Orleans Saints favorites to win Super Bowl XLIV:

By Jeff Duncan, The Times-Picayune
Quote:

The New Orleans Saints have been made the favorites to win the Super Bowl by Las Vegas oddsmakers.

First (take) ...
The New Orleans Saints have gone from also-rans to favorites in the blink of seven games this season.

Their impressive 7-0 hasn't just caught the eyes of fans and the media; it's seized the attention of Las Vegas oddsmakers.

Once an afterthought, the Saints are now the favorites to win Super Bowl XLIV. The Saints' odds have lowered with each victory this season. They now are 3-1 favorites to win the league's signature event, which, I'm guessing, is unofficially the lowest odds they've had in franchise history.

The NFL's other undefeated team, the Indianapolis Colts, is the second favorite at 5-1. New England is third choice at 11-2.

"No team has proven themselves more in bettors' eyes when it comes to futures this season than the New Orleans Saints," Bodog Sportsbook manager Richard Gardner said. "The Saints were 20-1 at the start of the season, but currently sit as the clear favorite at 3-1."

The Saints are the heavy favorite to win the NFC Championship at 3-2 odds. The Vikings are next at 7-2.

The odds, of course, could change if the Saints stumble in the coming weeks, but it does help ensure one thing: The Saints aren't going to sneak up on anyone the rest of the way.

"It only gets tougher the more you win," Saints quarterback Drew Brees said. "You get more of a bullseye on your chest."

I dunno girl, the Vikes might give ya a run for your money. But I'm not gonna lie, you probably don't have to worry about it too much. We always choke right before a big game.

Never underestimate the Saint's ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

They will choke, they always have, they always will.

Altho I was pleased that Reggie actually dropped a shoulder last week and played instead of being all pussy-like and stuff.

As much as I love me some Reggie Bush (for his awesome body and gorgeous smile) he needs to go. He is the most overpaid decoy in Saints history. He is improving, but not at the pace he should be with his salary and what we need of him.
