Sports Prediction
According to the odds tables, the Patriots have opened the lines as favorite. Our team also thinks that the Patriots will win this matchup considering the circumstances; that being, their home field advantage. In the past six weeks, the Patriots have dominated their opponents at home and the Denver Broncos are part of that list. With that said, the Patriots in my opinion should be able to cover the spread. Therefore, we highly recommend taking New England Patriots -7 provided by BetOnline.
