The New England Patriots are always dangerous underdogs

The New England Patriots are always dangerous underdogs

New England is enjoying a tremendous 7-0 SU and 6-1 ATS run, as it hits the road after picking up a 34-9 victory over the Detroit Lions as 7.5-point home favorites last week, while going UNDER the betting total for the first time in that span.  The Patriots have averaged a remarkable 39.5 points over their current run, which is important to consider when making your Week 13 NFL predictions, with Tom Brady leading the charge in throwing for 22 touchdowns and getting picked off just four times.  New England is 6-4 SU and 7-3 ATS as underdogs the last two-plus seasons, with the OVER going 7-3 in those 10 opportunities.

The Patriots have one of the more dominant offensive players in the league in tight end Rob Gronkowski, which can’t be ignored when looking over the NFL betting lines, as he’s been the main reason for the squad tallying 15 scores from that position in 2014.  On the defensive side of the ball, New England’s secondary is playing its best football of the season—holding opponents to the second-lowest completion percentage in the league since Week 7.

Green Bay has won seven of its last eight games, including a 24-21 victory over the Minnesota Vikings as 7.5-point road favorites last week, while going UNDER the betting total for the first time in eight affairs.  The Packers have won all five of their games at Lambeau Field this season—scoring an average of 43.8 points a contest along the way.  It’s also important to point out that the squad has jumped all over its last four opponents when playing at this historic venue—owning a combined 128-9 edge in the first half over that span.  Green Bay is 11-6 SU and 10-5-2 ATS versus teams with a winning record the last two-plus seasons.

The Packers also possess one of the top signal-callers in the league, with Aaron Rodgers accounting for 2,957 passing yards and 30 touchdowns, which has led to a league-best 119.3 passer rating.  Green Bay has provided him some major perimeter weapons, with Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, while running back Eddie Lacy has proven to be a capable player in his second year out of Alabama.

Sports bettors will likely back the Packers due to their 3-0 SUATS mark versus teams with a winning record.
