Will Pats win over 10 games in 2015?
FOXBORO, MA (The Spread) - Following a tumultuous offseason, will the Patriots win over or under 10.5 games in 2015?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Patriots' win total for 2015 has been set at 10.5, with the over carrying odds of even and the under carrying odds of -130. That means for every $100.00 you wager on New England winning over 10.5 games, you'll win $100.00. Conversely, for every $130.00 you wager on the under 10.5, you'll win $100.00.
The latest on the Deflategate scandal is that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will personally preside over Tom Brady's appeal of his four-game suspension. The NFLPA had been seeking a neutral arbitrator to hear the case, so the news comes as a bit of a surprise to the NFL community.
While Brady's absence could have a profound impact on the Patriots' win total this season, their history indicates that they're a great bet to win over 10.5 games. In fact, they haven't won fewer than 10 games since the 2009 season when they won exactly 10. Bill Belichick and Co. always find a way.
