There are two potential Super Bowl contenders in the NFC South heading in to the first week of the NFL regular season, and the Las Vegas betting odds reflect those thoughts by placing the two teams as the No. 1 and No. 2 most likely teams to take home the division crown — the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints, respectively.

As for the rest of the division picture, the Carolina Panthers are being given plenty of respect as a potential division champion, while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and their improved defense sit closely behind.

It will be fun to see how the NFC South race can play out as the season progresses, but for now it looks like it will be a two-horse race.

Here are the odds heading in to the season for the NFC South:

Atlanta Falcons 7/5
New Orleans Saints 7/4
Carolina Panthers 4/1
Tampa Bay Buccaneers 5/1

    I have know doubt we’ll be in the ,”Hunt,” come Playoff time. the Saints are tough to beat at home , I’m hoping we can break that losing streak this year @the Super dome, week 2 can be ours as well as Season opener @ MetLife. Week 3@Pats might be a struggle unless we use some Offensive strategies -Brady and whoever his target might be less Wes, will be sure to add points on the board.
    Week 4 against the Cardinals will be a win., & we will get even with the Eagles for embarrassing our 2002 heroes at home..
