Saints vs 49ers Betting Odds
This Sunday the New Orleans Saints will be hosting the San Francisco 49ers in what the bookies are expecting to be a very close match.
The home team’s odds of 4/5 put them as slight favourites above the Saints whose best odds are 20/19.
The Saints had a poor start to the year due to the “Bountygate” scandal and lost four of their first five games.
However, with Drew Brees leading them, they have turned things around and won four of their last five games and look like one of the most impressive teams in the league. If they manage a victory over the 49ers then they have a real chance of a place in the playoffs.
At present, the San Francisco defence is ranking second in the NFL in fewest passing yards allowed; they have an average of 182.9 yards-per-game.
Generally the 49ers’ secondary has played well against the pass; however, they did have some trouble against the Giants and Rams.
If the 49ers can control the Saints’ passing attack then they should see victory, however, it will be no easy task and it’s likely to be a very close match.
