“FanDuel is hanging New Orleans under 10.5 win at -120 (over + 100). DraftKings and PointsBet are both under 10.5 at -115 (over -106). Circa Sports is the lone outlier hanging a win total of 10 with -130 over juice (+ 110 under),” Applebaum writes.

New Orleans finished last season 13-3, though several factors have changed in the NFC, including Tom Brady’s arrival in Tampa Bay. While that will make for two tough games, the Saints have the nine easiest schedule, as the club’s opponents went 125-130-1 last year.

More From Around The NFL

  • NBC Sports’ Peter King has the Buccaneers listed at No. 5 in his early NFL power rankings. King writes that Tampa Bay could have easily been 9-7 last year without Jameis Winston’s blunders. With Brady and Gronk in the fold, expect the team to be much improved. The Bucs’ win total is currently listed as 9.5, though in some places like Fan Duel (-130), the over is juiced up.
  • During the last 33 regular-season games, New Orleans is 23-5 against the rest of the league and just 3-2 against Tampa Bay.
  • Kyler Murray will begin throwing with teammates this week. The Cardinals are likely to hold workouts in Minnesota, which is where Larry Fitzgerald has typically holds offseason activities.
