Saints over/under on wins is at 9. That is our lowest total in some time. Do you agree? Seems about right to me. Remember there are 17 games this year.

It’s a fair number and honestly I’m leaning towards the under as of now.

This team is 8-8 until proven otherwise. Gonna be a long season

What’s the payout if I put $500 on the over?

I’m thinking 11 wins.

I think it’s right. I don’t think many people outside of this forum expect us to win 11 or more games. So an over-under of 9 sounds right.

I am usually pretty optimistic, but schedule is brutal. Still a very talented team, but 9 wins is sort of looking high for this year. They could go 10-7 or 9-8, but could just as easily win 6 or 7 games. I think I would take the under on this bet, as much as I hate saying it.

I would think 9-8 would be a pretty good season to be honest

This will be a rebuilding year. As much as we all love Drew Brees we will be paying him for a few years down the line. Also, we've restructured contracts so much we'll be paying for those for years. The Saints didn't have the money to be big players in free agency and they aren't known for going for the home run hitters in drafts, at least under Loomis and Payton. I just hope Payton doesn't continue to try to make Taysom a pocket passer and uses him more like Baltimore uses Jackson. Turn the man loose!

Slightly low, I feel, but I do understand it. There's too much turnover at a few positions to confidently say that it should be higher.
Its only 1 game less than what it was last year. I placed a bet on the over/under around this time last year and it was set at 10.

With everyone we've lost on defense I don't know how anyone could say we'll be any good. People aren't living in reality if they think we can replace all we've lost with rookies and UDFA's on defense.

We also don't have a number 2 WR and lost our HOF QB.

We'll be lucky to win 7 games with the defense we're going to be fielding as of right now.

Far less worried about the absence of Drew than I am the arrest of Lattimore and lack of CB opposite him.
IF we don't figure out a way to lockdown that secondary, we will be back to giving up historic numbers of points per game again.

The defense lost a lot of good players. and the saints can't overcome the end of season injury bug, so yeh, 9 wins would be a blessing this year.

I’m gonna say we will be 9-8 or 8-9...transitioning year and we’ve lost a lot of good players. It’s exciting to see what happens. I see us using lots of young players obviously cause we can’t afford anyone major.
