Tom Brady and the New England Patriots will march into the MetLife Stadium as underdogs on Sunday night (Nov. 13, 2011) against the red-hot New York Jets.
The Pats (+105) are getting one point from Gang Green (-125) in the spread with an over/under of 48. Both teams are 5-3 for the season; however, the Jets are coming off a big win over the Buffalo Bills while New England lost a heartbreaker to the New York Giants.
Our fiscal friends at Odds Shark have more:
The New England Patriots have lost two straight and the aura of Super Bowl contender is rubbing off as they hit the road in Week 10 for a tough divisional battle against the Jets.The Pats are underdogs for the first time this season (they were dogged only twice in 2010 as well) and they are 9-3 ATS past 12 games as an NFL underdog. If the line swings to the Patriots during the week, bettors know they are 8-1 ATS past 9 games when a favorite of 2 or less points. Of note, the OVER is 9-1 past in the past 10 New England games within the AFC East. The Jets have also been a solid bet in the division, going 8-3 ATS past 11 within the AFC East.
Should be a close game, but it's hard to imagine the Pats losing three straight.
