Friday, January 13, 2012 : BetOnline’s public pounding the Saints minus the points versus the 49ers
The NFL’s version of the Elite Eight is kicks-off Saturday afternoon as the New Orleans Saints visit the San Francisco 49ers as 3.5-point favorites. There is no hotter team to bet on in the NFL than the Saints; not only have they won their last nine games outright, but they covered the point spread in each of those nine games as well. No wonder about 70% of Saints-49ers bets at BetOnline are on the Drew Brees and the Saints.
It’s easy to see why the betting public is bullish on the Saints. Not only have they covered and won nine straight, but they are absolutely thrashing their opponents. Only two of their last nine opponents were able to keep the game within single digits; the average margin of victory in those nine games was 17.1 points. During the regular season the Saints offense ranked first in the NFL in yardage (467.1) and second in scoring (34.2). And as potent as their offense has been all season, it is peaking at the right time; they put 45 points on the board in each of their last three games.

That being said, it’s hard to imagine them scoring anything close to 40+ points Saturday. Why? Because the 49ers were second in the NFL this season in scoring defense (14.3) and fourth in yardage (308.1). Even more impressive, in their last six home games only one of their opponents was able to score more than 10 points. With numbers like that, it’s not surprising that they were 7-0-1 against the spread at home this season.
Will you be siding with the NFL betting public and backing the high-scoring Saints? Or do you think the 49ers mauling defense will lock down Drew Brees and company?
