Belichick bettors outmatched in playoff rematches


USA Today Sports

The New England Patriots are a stellar 19-8 in the postseason under Bill Belichick, but all eight of their losses have come against opponents they have played in the regular season. 

During those eight regular season games New England was 5-3 straight-up and 4-4 against the spread, while averaging 30.5 points per game. 

During the second meeting of the teams in the postseason, the Pats are 0-8 SU and ATS while averaging just 17.9 points.

That decrease in points, an average of 12.6 less points in the playoff games, has also increased unders for the Pats. In those eight regular season games, New England has a 6-2 over/under record compared to 4-4 in one-and-done scenarios. 

The Indianapolis Colts, the Patriots opponents this week, lost to New England in Week 11 42-20. However, since Chuck Pagano and Andrew Luck came to Indy, the team is 12-0 SU and 10-1-1 ATS in “revenge games.”
