It’s easy to presume the New England Patriots are a favorite every and each week however going into Week 2 vs the Miami Dolphins, Odds Shark is monitoring a spread that we haven’t seen??for the Pats since the 2011 period. In actuality, it’s the largest spread for almost any NFL game because 2013.
The Patriots are??currently -19-point favorites at BetOnline to beat the Dolphins after launching as 14.5-point faves??with 67??percent of their money currently coming on the Pats.
That is New England’s largest spread as a favorite since 2011 when it??closed as 20-point dot versus the Colts and it is the Pats’??largest spread as a fave for a road game in Odds Shark’s database whenever they had been 19-point faves at 2007 vs the Ravens.??
Only three matches have had spreads of 18 points or more since the start of the 2010 year to put that in perspective of how large a spread this is:
Not my way to answer a question but did you find Dolphins and that the Patriots play in Week 1? They look like groups going in completely opposite directions since the Pats beat against the Pittsburgh Steelers from 30 along with the Dolphins dropped by 49 to the Baltimore Ravens on their home field.
The Patriots’ offense didn’t miss a beat in Week 1 and is expected to have a boost with WR Antonio Brown coming to town. New England’s defense looked by closing Pittsburgh down to just three points incredible.
Meanwhile, the Miami looked like a dumpster fire and oddsmakers are kicking around the concept that the Dolphins can go 0-16 SU at 2019.
The 1 glaring fact which appears to be glossed over is how the Patriots have fared in recent decades in Miami. New England goes to Miami every season and since 2013, the Pats are 1-5 SU and ATS in six games at South Beach (popping eye emoji!) .
In four games in Miami because 2016, the Patriots were favored by a touchdown or even more with just one SU and ATS win to show for this (35-14 win since 7.5-point faves on January 1, 2017).
I am not ready to state that New England will go into Miami and shed outright. That would be absurd. What I am saying is that expecting the Patriots to cover this large of a spread hasn’t been a rewarding undertaking.
They’ve been a fave of 18 points or even five times from the Brady-Belichick era and the fact remains they failed to pay the spread every moment while they have won every game.
See for yourself with results from Odds Shark’s database:
Now, it is worth noting that all of those matches, where the Patriots were large faves, was during their early 2007 year when they finished 16-0 and demolished most of the league (until the Super Bowl, naturally ). However, it has merit once we’re referencing spreads that are larger.??
