The New Orleans Saints held their mandatory minicamp last week, and now that the offseason training program has wrapped up across the NFL, players, coaches, and staff will part ways until the official start of training camps next month.
Short of any big free agency signings, this time of year is usually the calm before the storm. The period before the NFL season begins its ramp-up is a great chance to get a lay of the land for bettors looking to gamble on Louisiana sportsbooks.
Here at LouisianaBets.com, we’re using this time to analyze point total bets and see which NFL stadiums hit the Over at the highest rate.
To figure that out, we utilized data from SportsOddHistory.com from the past ten seasons — 2013-2022. With these numbers, we found the ten NFL stadiums that have seen the most Over bets cash in that time frame. Our information includes all regular season games and Super Bowls played at each respective stadium.

Caesars Superdome Hits Over 55.29% of the Time
While the home of the Lions, Ford Field has hosted the most Over games since 2013 by a wide margin, the Saints' home stadium ranks out at number two on our list.
However, the Caesars Superdome’s 55.29% Over rate largely harkens back to a New Orleans Saints team led by the combo of Quarterback Drew Brees and Head Coach Sean Payton. After beginning their tenure together in 2006, Brees and Payton were only outside of the top ten in NFL offensive scoring twice in their fourteen seasons with the Saints — cashing plenty of Over tickets in that time.
In 115 career games inside the Superdome, Drew Brees has thrown for 35,506 yards and 281 TDs — both stadium records unlikely to be surpassed. But since Drew Brees retired two seasons ago, only six games at the Caesars Superdome have gone Over the Vegas Point total.
However, there may be hope on the horizon for New Orleans’ home crowd. The Saints' new starting quarterback Derek Carr was a regular participant in high-scoring shoot-outs while playing for the Las Vegas Raiders at Allegiant Field. While not eligible for this list, since opening in 2020, games played at the new $1.9 billion dollar Las Vegas stadium have hit the Over 70.8% of the time — second of all stadiums in that time span.
As for the Superdome, it cost $134 million to build. Opening in 1975, it is the fifth oldest NFL Stadium still in use, and the oldest closed airfield. The historic New Orleans venue is currently in the midst of a four-year renovation, part of a revitalization project in preparation for its eighth go-around hosting the Super Bowl.
The last Super Bowl in New Orleans in 2013, when the Baltimore Ravens defeated the San Francisco 49ers 34-31, was a win for Over bettors.
