New odds from Vegas show gamblers still like the Saints headed into the 2020 season. 

The news keeps getting better for Saints fans: Drew Brees says he's coming back, and early odds just out of Vegas show bettors think the Saints will make it four-in-a-row for the division title.

"The Saints are looking strong," said Dave Mason of "We have them at -400 to win the NFC South."

A -400 means you have to bet a lot of money to win only a comparatively small amount -- in this case, a $400 bet only winds $100. The smaller your winnings, the more likely it is that oddsmakers think you'll win that bet.

"That's a pretty sizable favorite to win one of these divisions," explained Mason.

And the Saints are tied with San Francisco for the best chance to win the NFC and play in Super Bowl LV.

"To win the NFC, they're the co-favorite with the 49ers, at +500," said Mason. "To win the Super Bowl, currently +1200, or 12 to 1."

Mason said that's fifth best, behind Kansas City, Baltimore, New England, and San Francisco.
