Patriots' 2015 NFL Season Odds
FOXBORO, MA (The Spread) - After winning the Super Bowl last season, how many games will the Patriots win in the 2015 NFL regular season?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the over/under for the Patriots has been set at 10.5 for number of regular season wins in 2015. New England is also 17/2 to win the 2016 Super Bowl, 4/1 to win the AFC Conference championship, and 2/3 to win the AFC East Division.
As of this writing the Patriots are still waiting to hear from commissioner Roger Goodell on how many games Tom Brady will be suspended for the 2015 season. As of now, Brady faces a four-game suspension but he appealed the punishment, which could be reduced before the season starts.
Among the Patriots' offseason additions were cornerback Bradley Fletcher, receiver Brandon Gibson and outside linebacker Jabaal Sheard. The team lost Darrelle Revis, Alfonzo Dennard, Vince Wilfork, Akeem Ayers and Brandon Browner, among others.
In the draft the Pats added defensive tackle Malcolm Brown, defensive back Jordan Richards and defensive ends Geneo Grissom and Trey Flowers.
While questions remain about their secondary (specifically cornerback) and Brady's suspension, the Pats always find a way to win double digits and win the division. Nobody should think 2015 will be any different under the guidance of coach Bill Belichick.
