How To Bet On New England Patriots

Seven straight AFC East titles. Thirteen playoff appearances since 2001, and seven in a row from 2008-15. Twenty-two playoff victories since 2001, including 10 straight postseason wins between 2001-05, an NFL record. The Patriots have won an NFL-leading 124 games in the past decade and are the benchmark for what a NFL franchise should be. And while Tom Brady is 38 and they consistently undergo player movement, as all NFL teams must endure in a salary cap world, the key to success for the Patriots isn’t their personnel as much as it appears to be the people in charge of acquiring that personnel. [+]

New England just seems to know not only when to replace key parts of the equation, but who to get to replace them, both via the draft and free agency, to keep the equation adding up to more wins.

For a long time, and not all that long ago, nobody feared the New England Patriots. As recently as between the 1989-93 NFL seasons the Patriots won a measly 19 games. 

An original American Football League team when the league was formed in 1960, between 1960-84, the Patriots made the playoffs four times and won a solitary postseason game. Between 1965-75 the team enjoyed just one winning season. But in 1985 the Patriots found their form, winning three straight road games as a wildcard playoff entry to win the AFC Championship and reach the Super Bowl for the first time in franchise history.

New England Patriots Regular Season Schedule

The New England Patriots regular season schedule is listed right here and it figures to be an interesting opening month of the NFL season for the defending AFC East champions. [+]

Unless he wins an appeal, quarterback Tom Brady will begin the season under a four-game NFL suspension for his role in the Deflatgate scandal, and as much as that might seem like a big issue, thanks to the schedule maker, it may not be much more than a bump in the road for the Patriots.

After a difficult season-opener at the NFC Championship Game finalist Arizona Coyotes, the Patriots play host to the Miami Dolphins, Houston Texans and Buffalo Bills, so even without Brady, a 3-1, or at worst a 2-2 start seems the likely outcome for New England.

How to Win New England Patriots Bets

They Patriots haven’t finished worse than second in the division in the past 15 seasons and the two second-place finishes were the result of lost tiebreakers. But all that winning doesn’t necessarily mean that the Patriots are a mortal lock when it comes to betting on their games.

During the 2015 NFL regular season and playoffs, New England posted an 8-7-3 record against the spread overall and 2-2-2 within the AFC East. The Patriots were an especially risky bet on the road, where they were 3-6 against the spread. 

As dominant and successful as they’ve been over the past 15 years, even the New England Patriots don’t always come through with the clutch plays in the big game.

Consider the 2016 AFC Championship Game, for example. The vast majority of the money wagered on the game between the Patriots and Denver Broncos – more than three out of every four bets laid – were placed on the Patriots, making them 3.5 point favorites even though the game was being played in the Mile High City.

But it was Peyton Manning who beat his long time rival Tom Brady as the Broncos downed the Patriots 20-18, making Denver the most popular NFL team in sportsbooks around the globe.

Like him or not, Tom Brady is a winner. It’s as simple as that. Brady holds the NFL record for the most playoff wins (22) and most playoff games started (31).

Brady has been awarded the NFL’s most valuable player awared twice and has been named Super Bowl MVP three times, one of only four players to win multiple Super Bowl MVP awards.

Brady’s 31 playoff game appearances are the most by any player in NFL history. He’s also is the all-time NFL leader among quarterbacks in Super Bowl appearances (six), conference final games (10), comeback wins (six), game-winning drives (nine) and passing yardage (7,647).

He shares the record of four Super Bowl wins by a QB with Terry Bradshaw and Joe Montana and the mark of three Super Bowl MVPS with Montana.

The Patriots might not look as powerful as they have in the past, but as long as Brady is healthy and head coach Bill Belichick is in charge, they will continue to rule the AFC East and you can’t count them out as legitimate Super Bowl contenders.

Since Belichick was hired to be New England’s head coach in 2000, other than his first season, the Patriots have won the AFC East title or finished second in the division every year. 

They’ve won four Super Bowl titles, played in 13 AFC Championship Games, won six AFC titles and compiled an impressive 175-65 won-loss record. The Patriots posted a perfect 16-0 regular-season mark during the 2007 campaign, the only time that’s happened in NFL history.

How To Win New England Super Bowl 51 Bets

New England go into Super Bowl 51 as three-point favorites. It has, however, been a bad omen to go into the Super Bowl as favorites in recent years. Underdogs have won five Super Bowls in a row and six of the last eight. Green Bay, in Super Bowl XLV, was the last favorite to win the big game. New England, in Super Bowl XLIX, was one of those underdogs to triumph over the favorite, though Seattle were only one-point favorites. 

Super Bowl LI odds

 

The Patriots are going to break the curse in Super Bowl LI and buck the recent trend. This team is destined to win the Super Bowl, especially after what Tom Brady has been through in the last few seasons. He’s going to prove to everyone that he’s the best quarteraback of all time and win his fifth Super Bowl in the process. 

The Patriots have one of the league’s best offenses and the NFL’s most stingy defense. The Falcons are most definitely no push over, but the Patriots have all the makings of one of the best teams in history. That will resonate more once the Patriots are triumphant in Super Bowl LI. 

Back the Patriots to cover the spread, which favorites have also recently struggled to accomplish, and have faith that these two prolific offenses will also go over the 59.5 on the over/under line.
