The NFL season is still a few months away, but now is a great time to begin prep for 2021. The NFL schedule is released, 2021 odds for Super Bowl winners and division winners are now up for bettors, and training camp is right around the corner.
Today we’ll take a look at the New England Patriots schedule, NFL odds, and more for the 2021 season.
NFL Betting – New England Patriots Calendar Odds & Analysis For the 2021-22 Season
New England Patriots: 2020 Season Recap2020 was a year of transition for New England, missing the playoffs for the first time since 2008, finishing 7-9 on the year. The year was made tougher when Tom Brady led his new team, Tampa Bay, to a Super Bowl title.
Now, the Patriots move forward into what they hope to be the next era of winning football. Cam Newton had an up-and-down season at quarterback but has then resigned with the team. New England also drafted Alabama passer Mac Jones in the first round.
New England Patriots: Odds for 2021
MyBookie has you covered for all things NFL betting. On site, you can find every available bet for the Patriots, from Week 1 odds to Super Bowl LVI odds and everything in between.
New England has middling odds to win the Super Bowl, at 15th in the NFL. You can bet on the Patriots to win the Super Bowl at +2800.
The Pats have the seventh-best odds to win the conference, with odds listed at +1400.
The Patriots are tied with the Dolphins for second-best odds to win the AFC East, at +300.
New England Patriots: 2021 Schedule
Off the bat, New England will play each of the Dolphins, Jets, and Bills twice. Buffalo had a strong 2020 season, finishing 13-3, and figured to be a mainstay near the top of the AFC for years to come.
Miami had a solid 2020 and will be relying on second-year passer Tua Tagovailoa to take a leap. The Jets have been steeped in mediocrity for years and hope their new quarterback, rookie Zach Wilson, makes them more competitive.
Elsewhere, the Patriots will play both the NFC South and AFC South this season. The highlight there is the Buccaneers, with Brady returning to New England. The AFC South is a fine division to draw – while the Titans and Colts are tough, the Texans and Jaguars are not.
The teams on New England’s schedule:
- Buffalo Bills (x2)
- Miami Dolphins (x2)
- New York Jets (x2)
- Tennessee Titans
- Indianapolis Colts
- Houston Texans
- Jacksonville Jaguars
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers
- New Orleans Saints
- Atlanta Falcons
- Carolina Panthers
- Cleveland Browns
- Los Angeles Chargers
- Dallas Cowboys
2021 Season Prediction
There are some tough teams on the Patriots’ 2021 schedule. What makes it more difficult to predict is the uncertainty at the quarterback position. Will Cam Newton get another shot at leading this team, or will the Patriots hand over the franchise to a rookie QB?
Both options feel uninspiring, and with this slate of games, it could be another tough season in New England.
The only safe wins I see above are the Jets, Texans, Jaguars, Panthers, and maybe Falcons. The defense took a step back last season, and while they poured a lot of resources into remaking the offense, it’s a lot of new pieces at once.
Most sportsbooks have the Patriots over/under wins set at 9.5. Bet the under confidently.
NFL New England Patriots Calendar Analysis In 2020
Not only did the New England Patriots (12-4 SU, 8-7-1 ATS) foolishly let future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady bolt in free agency, but the perennially-powerful Pats will kick off life after Brady with the toughest schedule in all of football (.537) once the 2020 NFL regular season gets underway in September.
