IND/NE Undefeated Odds

It seems like every year football fans speculate whether a team can not only go 16-0 during the regular season but also make it through the postseason unbeaten. Of course, the last team that accomplished this feat was way back in 1972 when the Miami Dolphins went 14-0 in the regular season and 3-0 during the postseason.

Fast forward 35 years and not one, but two teams seem to be viable candidates to accomplish this overdue yet impressive act.  The most likely candidate to run the table is the New England Patriots behind a high powered offense that no one can come close to stopping.

Through their first seven games, the Patriots are averaging an astonishing 39.9 points per game and have yet to be held under 34 in any game.  The main reason for this ridiculous output in scoring is the addition of Randy Moss and Wes Welker to the passing game.

So far, these two have combined for 1256 yards and 15 touchdowns and are both well on their way to exceeding 1000 yards. These are truly staggering numbers considering Tom Brady has never had a 1000 yard receiver in his tenure as Patriots signal caller.

Even more impressive is the fact that Brady already has 27 touchdown passes, just 1 shy of his single season high.  Brady is well on his way to shattering Peyton Manning’s single season touchdown mark of 49.

Speaking of Manning, you can’t ignore the fact that his Colts are also undefeated heading into Week 8.  The defending champs have looked as good as ever despite many defections from last year’s team.

The passing numbers might not be as dominant as years past but their rushing attack is much improved and is churning out over 140 yards per game.  If both squads remain unbeaten after this weekend, something will have to give the following week when they meet in Indianapolis.  If all goes as planned and both remain undefeated, this could be the most hyped and biggest regular season game of all time.

Due to the rate at which the Patriots have been drubbing their opponents, the Sportsbook.com had the early line of Colts +3 for their November 4th match-up. If this line holds up and they remain home underdogs, it is interesting to point out that the last time the Colts were getting points at home was September of 1999.

What are the odds that either team will go undefeated in 2007?

Will the New England Patriots go 16-0?

Yes +300, No -400

Will the Indianapolis Colts go 16-0?

Yes +1500, No -2500

Will Tom Brady break Peyton Manning’s season passing TD record?

Yes -260, No +200

Early Super Bowl Line

AFC -12.5, O/U 53.5
