It’s a throwback to seven or eight years ago in local sports books.

The New Orleans Saints are near the top of betting boards, with both the production and betting action to show for it. New Orleans, which has been shut out of the playoffs for the last four years after a stretch as an NFL power before that, is on a six-game straight-up and against the spread winning streak.

That’s put the Saints’ futures in rarefied air as they’re now 5-to-1 to reach the Super Bowl — behind only the Eagles in the NFC — and 10-to-1 to win the championship — behind only the Patriots, Steelers and Eagles.

They’ll try to keep climbing this week against another surprise team when they travel to Buffalo. The Bills have been better anyone expected with a 5-3 straight-up, 5-2-1 against the spread mark, but are 2.5-point underdogs to the scorching Saints.

It’s the game of the week in the Sun’s handicapping contest, meaning it’s mandatory that all four competitors place one of their six weekly wagers off of the South Point betting board on the game.
