New Orleans Saints Betting- Looking at the Numbers
Quarterback Drew Brees is still accurate at his later age. He is looking for one more ring. His favorite receiving target is Michael Thomas. He picked up 92 first downs which is very high. This combination is lethal. Running the ball is the very capable Alvin Kamara.
He was likely the second best RB in the league and his receiving ability is awesome. This offense is primed and ready for head coach Sean Payton.
