Saints vs Colts NFL Super Bowl Predictions: Betting on the Super Bowl winner is fun, but why limit yourself to one outcome when online sportsbooks such as BetUS.com have so many wagering opportunities to take advantage of? The game within the game can often be more enjoyable and profitable than the game itself, so, visit BetUS.com today get in on some of the following NFL Super Bowl Predictions: Team to have the most offensive plays, team to have the most time of possession, and team to have the most first downs.
Predicting a winner or a cover can sometimes be a difficult task, but having the right information on hand can often simplify the choice. The same is true of team comparison props, but fortunately, there are piles of game logs and box scores to aid in finding some helpful trends. Hence, remember a few of the following stats when you head to the proverbial betting window:
Indianapolis averaged 61 offensive plays per game (opponent's averaged 67) during the regular season and 68 per game in playoff wins against the Ravens and Jets (opponents averaged 57.5). Indianapolis averaged 27:40 minutes time of possession during the regular season (opp. average 32:19) and 32:41 in their two postseason games (opp. average 27:18). The Colts averaged 21 first downs per game during the regular season (opponents averaged 20) and 25 per game in beating Baltimore and New York (Ravens and Jets averaged 15).
The Colts longest touchdown of the regular season came on a 93 yard kick return by Chad Simpson; their longest from scrimmage came on an 80 yard receiving touchdown from Dallas Clark. Indy's longest touchdown of the postseason was a 16 yard catch by Austin Collie. The Colts longest run this season was a 45 yarder by rookie running back Donald Brown. Their longest run in the Playoffs was a 17 yard scamper by Joseph Addai.
New Orleans averaged 64.5 plays per game during the regular season (opp. average 65) and 60.5 per game against the Cardinals and Vikings (opp. average 67). New Orleans averaged 31:36 time of possession during the regular season (opp. average 29:14) and 32:11 in their two postseason contests (opp. average 30:11). The Saints averaged 22 first downs per game during the regular season (opp. average 19.3) and 21 per game against Arizona and Minnesota (opp. average 23).
New Orleans longest touchdown of the regular season was a 97 yard kick return from Courtney Roby. The Saints longest playoff touchdown was an 83 yard punt return from Reggie Bush against Arizona. New Orleans longest regular season run was a 55 yarder by Bush and its longest playoff run was a 46 yarder, also by Bush.
Most interesting is the fact that the Colts offensive numbers (first downs, time of possession, plays) all trended upward in the playoffs against two exceptional defensive teams. That might change against the Saints medicore defense, though, as Manning and company may find the endzone more quickly and more often, thus reducing their time of possesion, plays, and, potentially, their first downs. Conversely, Indy's paltry 16 yard longest touchdown and 17 yard longest run, may go up.
