Once again, the New England Patriots are the team to beat heading into the 2018 NFL betting season. Any why not after the franchise has partook in the Super Bowl three of the last four seasons? Though much has been made about Bill Belichick and tom Brady not getting along, it’s nothing more than hot noise. These two do what they do to be the best at what they do, and the linemakers take notice. Every year!
New England is the +655 favorite to win Super Bowl LII, as well as the odds on +290 favorite to win the AFC. They have the highest win total of any team at 11, and the betting public is still hitting the high side of that number with reckless abandon. New England is a dynasty and will continue to be just that until an integral part to the franchise’s success either moves on or walks away from the game altogether.
This is a team that comes off a 13-3 regular season campaign that saw them beat the linemakers on 11 occasions. They did that even though they started the season 2-2 straight up and 1-3 against the spread! Over the last 10 years, the Pats have won 13, 14, 12, 12, 12, 12, 13, 14, 10, 11 and 16 games. With that, it’s quite easy to see why the betting public is flocking to the window to hammer the over once again this season.
New England’s recipe for success a year ago was quite simple. Unleash the offense upon every suspecting foe, get a few stops here and there, and most importantly, don’t turn the ball over. The Pats committed the second fewest turnovers in the game ( 12 ) behind only the Chiefs. The same story will play out in 2018 regardless of the fact that the roster suffered a ton of turn over.
That said, there is a glaring question that needs to be answered this upcoming season. While the defense was one of the worst of the Belichick era, it still only surrendered an average of 18.5 points per game. Some of that has to do with playing in one of the weakest divisions in the NFL, but it also had to do with Matt Patricia calling the defensive sets on the sidelines. He’s now calling the shots in Motown. No defensive coordinator has been names since, but you have to imagine this dilemma will work itself out as the season moves along.
Bottom line, it makes no difference who Tom Brady has to utilize. The faces and numbers change every season. However, the defense remains a big issue and it wasn’t really rectified this past offseason. Because of it, I don’t foresee the Patriots churning out another double-digit win season versus the linemakers. In fact, it wouldn’t shock me if it was a wise choice to fade them as heavy chalk all year. Total bettors, especially those that like to hit Patriot overs, best get ready to topple some of the highest totals the league has ever seen on a weekly basis!
