Plenty has changed since the start of the season. There are much different perceptions on some teams and players now that we have reached the midway point of the NFL season.
ESPN betting analysts Preston Johnson, Doug Kezirian and Matt Youmans of the Vegas Stats & Information Network offer some futures worth a look heading into the second half.

New Orleans Saints to win Super Bowl (+450)
Kezirian: With Drew Brees returning from injury, New Orleans has everything intact to make a Super Bowl run. At 7-1, the Saints are poised to earn home-field advantage in the NFC. Not only do they host the undefeated 49ers in Week 14, but also San Francisco has other road games in Seattle and Baltimore and hosts the Packers and Rams. The remaining schedule is much more favorable for New Orleans. Its toughest road games are Tennessee and Carolina. The Saints should be favored in the rest of their games, and I like their chances to finish strong.
