With the way the Patriots have played of late, it’s hard to imagine why they’re favored against a pretty good Denver team. But New England has been so good at home over the years – especially in the month of October. They don’t have Tom Brady and the offense has looked awfully inept this season, but you can always expect a Bill Belichick-led team to compete every week. With how well Jay Cutler and the Broncos’ offense is playing right now, it’s hard to not love getting three points, but we’ll stick with the home favorites and say New England surprises this week. We predict the Patriots over the Broncos 17-13.
