Top 2022 Super Bowl predictions
After simulating the season 10,000 times, the model likes the value of the New Orleans Saints, even though they're long shots at +2500. Although the Saints defeated the Buccaneers twice during the 2020 regular season, they fell 30-20 in the NFC Divisional playoff round. New Orleans was impressive after losing starting quarterback Drew Brees to injury late in the season, as the Saints still went 3-1 with Taysom Hill under center before Brees returned for the stretch run and playoffs.
This season, it will be Hill, Jameis Winston or fourth-round draft pick Ian Book in that role now that Brees has retired. Despite the change under center, New Orleans returns a number of key weapons, including Hill, who completed a team-best 72.7 percent of his passes last year. Hill is a threat from anywhere on the field. He threw four touchdowns, rushed for 457 yards and eight TDs, and caught eight passes for 98 yards and a score.
With the return of a potent offense and improving defense, the Saints have a strong chance to win the big game. According to the model, New Orleans wins Super Bowl LVI 5.1 percent of the time. That's more than the implied winning percentage of 3.8 based on the team's +2500 Super Bowl odds 2022 at William Hill Sportsbook, making the Saints a strong value.
