Saints Favored by 3 Points at +105 Over Cardinals in Next Sunday Night's Hall of Fame Game.
Online PR News – 05-August-2012 – Panama City, Panama – As millions of football fans gear up for the upcoming season, the excitement surrounding the NFL's first preseason event, which pits Arizona against St. Louis at the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio, is building at a rapid pace. While several competing sports betting sites favor the Saints over Arizona by 3 points at -105 or +100, Lowvig.com, a popular online sportsbook well known for its reduced-juice NFL Football lines, is offering +105 odds on New Orleans at -3. The site currently has the Cardinals priced at +3 -116 and the over/under is 34½ -105 either way.
New Orleans will enter next Sunday's event led by Assistant coach Joe Vitt, who took on his new role as the team's interim head coach after Sean Payton's highly publicized suspension in March of this year. The Saints have been surrounded by controversy ever since the onset of the so-called Bountygate scandal and Vitt himself has not emerged unscathed. Nevertheless, although he faces a six-game suspension of his own at the beginning of the regular season, it is becoming clear that Vitt's offseason efforts have paid off; it is evident that he has the full support of both his players and staff.
When asked how the team was handling Payton's suspension in a post-practice interview on Wednesday, Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins had the following to say: "I think Joe Vitt has done a great job of stepping into that role and leaders on the team, from players and coaches have done a good job of stepping up and taking that burden on as a team.”
The upcoming Hall of Fame Game will also give Saints fans a chance to guage the performance of former Rams' Head Coach Steve Spagnuolo, who replaced Gregg Williams as the team's Defensive Coordinator earlier this year.
Earlier this week, Arizona's head coach Ken Whisenhunt announced that Kevin Kolb would be the starting quarterback in Sunday night's game. Apparently, this decision was rather unsettling to many of his teammates, who would have preferred that John Skelton lead them into their first preseason game. Skelton replaced Kolb for approximately half the season after an injury last year. In an interview on Wednesday, Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who recently signed a $100 million dollar 5 year contract with the team, said he was looking forward to playing against Arizona in the upcoming Hall of Fame game.
