Here's a trend if you like the Pats today. Since Nov. Of 2002, the Brady era, the Pats are 24 - 2 ATS (92%) after a loss as favs of -4 or less. I will probably stay away from this game as the Pats are decimated by injuries and I'm not sure they can protect Tom enough for him to be effective especially with a depleted receiving corps.

I like NEW ENGLAND despite the injury's. I have the line at -9.5 so -5 is a value.
