The New England Patriots are hosting the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tom Brady and company are expected to win by a lot. The Patriots are 9-1 all time against the Jaguars, with the one loss coming in the 1998 playoffs with Scott Zolak at quarterback.
The Patriots currently stand as 14.5-point favorites. Bill Belichick and Tom Brady are 15-0 when favored by 14.5 or more points, with a sixteenth game during the 2008 season opener that ended in disaster with a Tom Brady injury, even though the Patriots also won. The Patriots have covered such a large spread just twice in their past ten attempts.
Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are 41-4 when favored by 10 or more points, so a Patriots victory is expected based on historical results. The Patriots only covered the spread in a third of those games, and they've been covering even fewer spreads in the past five years.
The over/under is set at 48, which implies a 31.25-16.75 final score.
What do you think will be the final score?
