The predictions should pour in during the next couple weeks as head towards the biggest game of the season, and while it’s a bit early, it still doesn’t mean they’re not fun to take a stab at.
Super Bowl XLIV Colts vs. Saints Game Prediction
The Saints had a rough go of it against the Vikings, needing a ton of turnovers to win in OT.
The Colts meanwhile handled the Jets, a team with a rookie QB on the road and an inferior team.
The Colts have a momentum advantage right now but that will change by the time the rust of the two-week wait for Super Bowl XLIV hits.
The Colts’ offense is a bit more timing-based than the Saints in the passing game which is big for this Super Bowl.
If the timing is off for Favre and co. a bit, the opportunistic Saints defense can end up with a few good turnovers to turn the tide.
The Saints also have a straight-ahead running game that should work well against the fast Colts D that has a slight problem overpursuing at times and if the Saints execute in the running game that could make all the difference.
Saints vs. Colts Super Bowl Final Prediction: Saints win, 27-24, based on how the teams look now as we’re still two weeks out and injuries could happen.
