Saints’ Sean Payton in Top 10 to be first fired? Betting site thinks so

New, comments

Betting odds and prop bets sure are funny these days, but not so funny when you talk about Saints head coach Sean Payton.

NFL: New Orleans Saints-Press Conference Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

BookMaker.eu, which is not likely to make it past any of your work filters, recently opened their odds on the first NFL head coach fired this season.

According to their lines, Indianapolis’ Jim Caldwell and Tennessee’s Mike McCoy are on the hotseat. At this point, you could probably say burning coals. In turn, New England’s Bill Belichick, Arizona’s Bruce Arians, and Seattle’s Pete Carroll are safe.

New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton finds himself in the Top 10, as you can see from the odds (scroll through the pages).

I suppose that 5-year contract extension and the changed demeanor of Sean Payton doesn’t account for much. There’s little to no question that the Saints must get back to their winning ways after back-to-back 7-9 seasons, but I think we can all say that we see a much more invigorated Payton.
