    New England Patriots -17.5 is the Lock of the Year

    We all know what happened last week but, just incase you donít-

    NE 33 PIT 3
    BAL 59 MIA 10

    Letís remind ourselves that BB enjoys running up the totals more than any coach in the league. Letís also remember that this is ABís first game with this offense and they will treat it as if it is a practice for him. I expect the starters to play all or most of the game, and if they are subbed trust that the 17.5 will be long surpassed. This could turn out to be the best Patriots offense of all time, and the 2019-2020 Miami Dolphins could quite possible be the worst football team ever. Back up the money truck on the Pats this week.

    Oh fuck off. Why did you have to do this.


    It’s also 18.5 in most spots now.

    Well I was already painting a picture, but creating this thread is the icing on the cake.

    Oh my bad. I got it at -17.5 yesterday. Itíll be interesting to see how far it moves as I think in reality they are more like -23.5

    So am I and So do I. simp and I had this exact discussion in the FSWT yesterday. There are many reasons that make the +18.5 the sharp play, but I see the same things you do.

    The difference this year vs the examples offered is Miami WANTS to lose.

    Tanking is respected and now more commonly accepted in the nerd era. Embrace it

    Tanking is a powerful look in sports and like what we were doing in the NBA last season it should be one of the first filters in your handicap.

    That said, the comparison to 2007 is interesting conversation. Bellichick was angry at the NFL then. Rules were less offense friendly (gay). The 2007 achievement was extremely powerful. Now Bill may want to make a point this year too but I’m not sure what that angle would be.

    I feel a migraine developing as people try to compare two different eras of rules.

    The difference between 17.5 and 19 is meaningless. Not an important number

    Patriots need to take a break and give other teams a chance.

    Fuck Tom Brady.

    Weíll see how this thread ages but damn this looks like 44-10 on paper.

    On a side note, Mike the mouthís Twitter is gold. Basically any prediction he makes is dead wrong. Last one I saw he predicted no team would give Antonio Brown more than $2m a year, hours later the Pats give him $15m.

    Great theory as tua is -200 to be #1 pick but they traded a 2nd rounder for josh rosen so they ain't in super tank for tua mode. U cant take as an NFL team, some of these guys only get a cpl years in the league and they know how easy it is to get thrown away with no guaranteed $, gotta give 100%

    This is actually the classic spot where the previous week one of the teams looked way better than they actually are, and their opponent looked way worse than they actually are. So you are usually supposed to take the underdog.
