Tom Brady AFC Championship Props
FOXBOROUGH, MA (The Spread) – Tom Brady has been down this road plenty of times. Will his experience lead to another big performance for the Patriots against the Colts on Sunday?
According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, Brady has been given an over/under of 285.5 passing yards for Sunday’s game. His total completions has been set at 24, while his over/under for passing touchdowns has been set at 2.5. The Patriots will host the Colts in Sunday’s AFC Championship at 6:40PM ET on CBS.
Brady is once again in the MVP debate for the numbers he put up this year, his 15th season in the NFL. Brady went 373 of 582 passing for 4,109 yards with 33 touchdowns and nine interceptions. This was the fifth time that Brady has had at least 30 passing touchdowns in a season and the seventh time he has thrown for over 4,000 yards.
Brady looked great in last week’s playoff opener against the Ravens, as he went 33 of 50 passing for 367 yards with three touchdowns. When New England hit the road to face the Colts back on Nov. 16, Brady went 19 of 30 passing for 257 yards with two touchdowns.
Of the 17 games the Patriots have played this season, Brady has thrown for at least 286 yards in eight of them. He has just three touchdown passes or more in only five games while completing at least 24 passes in eight games. Brady will be up against a passing defense that ranked 12th in the NFL this season, allowing just 229.3 yards per game through the air. The Colts held Peyton Manning to 211 yards last week and Andy Dalton to 155 yards two weeks ago.
