Online football betting stats show that the Saints are still barely alive in the playoff race while the Lions are floundering through a horrible season. NFL betting will be heavily in favor of the Saints in NFL Week 16 odds.
Online football betting on both teams has been disappointing this season. The Saints were expected to contend for the NFC South division title but that has not happened while the Lions were at least expected to win a few games. Online football betting history shows that the Lions have actually won six of the last ten games against New Orleans. The teams have not played that often recently, having met only four times in the last 20 years as online football betting results have it. NFL betting results showed that the most recent meeting was at New Orleans in 2005 as the Lions won 13-12.
The Saints have a powerful offense that should put up a lot of points in this game against the Lions. New Orleans has been first in the NFL in total yards as online football betting stats show for most of the season. NFL betting stats show that Drew Brees is having another Pro Bowl season and the Saints can score with anyone. The problem for New Orleans is a defense that is in the bottom third of the NFL in points allowed as NFL betting stats show. That defense might not be as big of a problem in this online football betting matchup though since the Lions rarely score.
The Lions are ranked right near the bottom of the league in points scored but they are even worse in points allowed as online football betting stats have it. That usually spells trouble in online football betting and why Detroit has not won yet this season.
