The Saints season may have had its ups and downs so far, but the team has one five straight with its star quarterback set to return to practice today. Oddsmakers have gone up and down with the Saints, too.

When the Saints started the season, they were the favorites to go to the Super Bowl. That changed with oddsmakers when quarterback Drew Brees went down with a thumb injury on his throwing hand, but then the Saints reeled off five straight wins, including three over teams that were in the playoffs last year, and Rafael Esparza of says the Black and Gold are back in business.

"They're back to where they were before he even got hurt, Drew Brees, as the favorite in the NFC, " said Esparza.

Now the Who Dat Nation waits to see when Brees suits up again -- this Sunday here at the Dome versus Arizona, or November 10 when the Saints host the Atlanta Falcons.

The New England Patriots remain the favorites to WIN the Super Bowl.
