Betting Super Bowl – Online Betting

Betting Super Bowl fans are fully aware that the one major online betting weakness of the New Orleans Saints is their defense, which ranked 25th overall in the NFL.

Betting Super Bowl handicappers are concerned about the Saints ability to contain a powerful Colts offense led by quarterback Peyton Manning. The Saints have had some online betting success on defense in the playoffs although they were clearly outgained by the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship Game.

The Saints key to online betting success in their thrilling win over Minnesota was being physical and opportunistic. The Saints forced six Minnesota turnovers and brutalized quarterback Brett Favre throughout the game. The Saints can be expected to bring plenty of heat against Manning and to try and force turnovers against the Colts. But the fact remains that the Saints ranked in the bottom third of the NFL in all significant defensive categories.

Defensive end Will Smith will be a key for the Saints. Smith is a 6-year pro out of Ohio State that had 13 sacks this past season.

Darren Sharper is another important element to the Saints defense as he led the team with 9 interceptions this year. The 13 year pro out of William & Mary has 63 career interceptions and 11 touchdowns. He was a member of Green Bay’s Super Bowl teams in 1997.
