Both teams finished the regular season the best in their conference with the Colts at 14-2 while the Saints were 13-3.
Many “experts” are picking the Colts based on the fact they have Peyton Manning, which overlooks the fact that the Saints have Brees who was voted Offensive player of the year.
I was surprised to hear on the radio that many of the current NFL players are actually picking the Saints to win the game, which may be a knock on the Colts defense.
Most expect there to be plenty of points in this one but I think defense will play a larger role then they expect.
I guess we shall see. For what it’s worth the betting line has gone from 5.5 to 4.5 in the week leading up to the game.
