The New England Patriots were 2.5-point betting underdogs for their Sunday Night Football matchup with the Indianapolis Colts in Week 11, but Tom Brady and company rolled to an easy payout in that contest with a 42-20 road victory.
That moved the Patriots to an AFC-best 8-2 SU on the season and 6-4 ATS, while the Colts are now 6-4 SU and 7-3 ATS – and just one game ahead of Houston in the AFC South standings after the Texans upset the Cleveland Browns 23-7 as a 3-point underdog in Week 11.
