One For The Ages
In possibly the greatest regular matchup in NFL history the two best teams of the salary cap era duke it on Sunday.
After early career struggles against Brady and the Patriots, Peyton has won 4 of 5 ATS including last season’s final minute 38-34 AFC Championship win after being down 21-6 at the half. Last time New England lost. This was the last game the New England Patriots lost and since the Colts went on to win the Super Bowl, have revenge on their mind.
The Colts are on an 11-0 run dating back to last season and have won 10 of 11 ATS when playing non-divisional games. But despite their recent success against the Patriots, this is a different Pats team with addition of receivers Randy Moss, Wes Walker and Donte Stallworth. Look for New England to come out trying different schemes to see which matchups Brady can exploit. The key matchup to note is the one involving Randy Moss as he has hauled in 11 of Tom Brady’s 30 touchdown passes this season.
The Patriots have scored 34+ points in all 8 games (with each win being by 17+ points) this season which is an NFL record. The 400+ yards New England is piling on is yet another record they have smashed so far this season. This could be the reason online sportsbook Bodog has the line for the total points scored set at 56.5 total points right now.
This game opened with the home team Colts getting 4 points, but the public has jumped all over the favored Patriots (76% of the betting action) and bet this game up to 5.5.
Despite the line move, it seems the popular sports betting forums like the one at theSpread.com are still all over the New England Patriots minus the points on the road.
