Posted by Eric Williams on Friday,June 17, 2016 5:00, EST in

If you just can’t wait for the start of the 2016 NFL regular season and you’re looking to kick off your 2016 wagering campaign on some NFL odds, then make sure to read this expert analysis on the New England Patriots. We have reviewed the regular season games and determined what games offer the best chance to cash in. So let’s get started!

 

 

Week 2

Miami Dolphins at New England (-6)

Analysis: The Patriots have won two straight and a blistering nine of their last 10 home games while posting a fine, 6-3-1 ATS mark along the way. More importantly, the Pats have owned the AFC East division rival Dolphins for quite some time now and particularly at home.

New England is 9-1 SU and 6-4 ATS in their last 10 home games against the Fins, including a pristine 7-0 SU and 5-2 ATS over the last seven meetings. New England has covered the spread in each of their last four home games against Miami and will do so again, even if future Hall f Fame quarterback Tom Brady is forced to miss this Week 2 matchup as part of a league-mandated suspension for his allege role in Deflategate.

The Pats have outscored the Dolphins by an average of approximately 21 points per game over the last three and will get another ‘W’ against their longtime rivals in this one

The Pick: New England 27 Miami 20

 

Week 5

New England (-7) at Cleveland

Analysis: While I love Cleveland’s hiring of widely-respected NFL veteran coach Hue Jackson, I’ve got to believe that New England is going to roll into Cleveland and lay an Eiffel Tower-sized whipping on the Browns, particularly if Tom Brady is forced to miss the first four games of the 2016 regular season.

Did You Know that construction on the famous Eiffel Tower began on January 28, 1887 and that it opened to the public on March 31, 1889?

I know the Pats lost their final three road games a year ago, including their crushing 20-18 playoff loss at eventual Super Bowl champion Denver, but New England has posted a solid 6-4 SU mark over its last 10 road dates while going 2-2 SU and ATS in their last four road games against the Browns. More importantly, I think Bill Belichick will find a way to limit Cleveland’s offense while Brady goes wild on the other side of the ball.

The Pick: New England 35 Cleveland 24

 

Week 13

Los Angeles Rams at New England Patriots (-9)

Analysis: The Rams have posted a respectable 5-5 SU and ATS mark in their last 10 home games, including a air of wins and ATS covers in their final two home dates last season. The bad news is that Los Angeles has lost four straight against New England dating back to 2002 while compiling a dismal 1-4 ATS mark over their last five meetings against the Pats.

Personally, I’m not a big believer in L.A. head coach Jeff Fisher and believe he will get thoroughly out-coached by Belichick in this contest as New England gains momentum – and another win – en route to their

The Pick: New England 38 Cleveland 21

 

Week 15

New England (-1) at Denver Broncos

Analysis: While Tom Brady and company have lost two straight against the Broncos, including their road playoff loss last season, New England has gone 64 SU and ATS over their last 10 matchups against the Broncos dating back to 2008.

Not only that, but I fully expect the Broncos to underachieve with veteran QB Mark Sanchez under center or possibly, by this point, rookie Paxton Lynch. I like New England to takedown Denver and cover the spread as my final NFL futures bet predictions pick!

The Pick: New England 24 Denver 21
