Betting on the New England Patriots (+2)

Regular Season Record: 9-4

It’s amazing how the Patriots have managed to rack up all these wins and reclaim the top spot in the AFC East just like old times. That’s a credit to the mad genius of Bill Belichick, who had a bold and incredible game plan in their 14-10 road win over the Buffalo Bills in Week 13 – before the Patriots entered a bye in Week 14. In that game, the Patriots rushed 46 times for 222 yards and a touchdown. Mac Jones also threw just three passes. New England isn’t afraid to try new things, but it could revert back to a more balanced way of running its offense against the Colts. The Patriots are 10th in the NFL with 26.9 points per game, as they are powered by a rushing attack that is also 10th in the league with 123.5 rushing yards per contest. Their defense, however, should get more recognition. After all, it is tops in the NFL with only 15.4 points allowed per contest.

The Patriots are 7-0 against the spread in their last 7 games overall

Betting on the Indianapolis Colts (-2)

Regular Season Record: 7-6

The Colts had some sort of a freebie win in Week 13, as they rebounded from a heartbreaking loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12 by downing the Houston Texans in an easy 31-0 road victory. Once again, running back Jonathan Taylor showed off his wheels. He had 143 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 32 carries. While he’s unlikely to rack up that many yards against a stout defense of the Patriots, his presence should command enough attention to at least open things up for Carson Wentz and Indianapolis’ passing attack. Another thing about the Colts is that they have an opportunistic defense that is no.1 in the NFL with 2.2 takeaways per game. Moreover, Indianapolis is fourth overall in defensive interception rate.

The Colts are 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 games after giving up fewer than 15 points in their previous contest.
