1. Patriots over 21.5 points scored (-110)
The Patriots aren’t built to win high-scoring affairs, but betting them to score more than 21 points against a Saints defense that just allowed Sam Darnold to throw for 305 yards and two touchdowns seems reasonable.
As long as Jones is given time to throw and McDaniels is willing to take more chances, the Patriots’ offense should have more bite to it on Sunday. Let’s be honest. New England planned to ride their defense to a victory vs the Jets. There was no need to risk turnovers by asking Jones to take shots downfield.
Expect that to change in a big way against the Saints, regardless of whether Winston gets back on track or not.
The Patriots team total is set at 21.5 points and we’d personally hammer the over with confidence. It checks in at -110 odds, so bet $110 to win $100.
Think about it like this. Jones threw for just 186 yards on a lowly 6.2 yards per attempt in Week 2 and New England still scored 25 points. If that doesn’t convince you to make this bet, we’re not sure what will.
