2018 New England Patriots Betting Odds and Schedule
Do NFL gambling sites favor the New England Patriots to win Super Bowl LIII? Is the Space Pope reptilian? An even better rhetorical question would be, is Tom Brady the GOAT? Seems like there is always much hype surrounding the Pats prior to the start of a season. A couple of years ago Tommy ‘Gun’ Brady missed the first four games of the season. Everyone thought Jimmy Garoppolo would choke harder than CM Punk (again). As it turned out the kid managed to hold the fort until Tom’s return. And New England went on to win the Super Bowl.
In contrast, New England was supposed to win the Super Bowl undefeated last season. That obviously didn’t happen. On the contrary, the team – especially the defense – had some kinks to iron out. But the Pats did make it to the Super Bowl (again). The point is, it ain’t over till the phat Brady quits.

What will the hype revolve around this year? On the one hand, wide receiver and unsung hero Julian Edelman is expected to return from injury. On the other hand, he’s facing suspension for juicing up. As a result, he might miss four regular season games. Could that affect the Pats’ odds at NFL gambling sites? First of all, they’ve already had a key player sit out four regular season games. Also, they’ve already gone through an entire season without Edelman.
What else can one say that hasn’t already been said time and again? Tom Brady is getting on in age. Rob Gronkowski is more brittle than Sam Jackson in Unbreakable. Bill Belichick is a cantankerous old geezer. So? One thing’s for sure, though. As of this writing, the Pats have, for all intents and purposes, only one QB. Because of the other two, one is a seventh-rounder rookie. And the other’s Brian Hoyer.
