Some gamblers believe that betting football on the Patriots will be just as profitable in 2008-09 as it was last season, when the Patriots overwhelmed opponents with their jaw-dropping offense. On the other hand, other gamblers believe that betting football on the Patriots will be far less profitable in 2008-09 and the team will struggle to duplicate last year’s success.
Betting football on the Patriots has been very popular for many years simply because the Tom Brady – Bill Belichick era has been so phenomenal. Although the Patriots ended up losing to the Giants in the Super Bowl last year, the tremendous success of their season should not be overlooked. The Patriots continued defying the football betting online odds during the regular season when the team posted a perfect 16-0 record. Gamblers who were consistently betting football on the Patriots or betting football on Patriots overs made a nice profit, as the team went 10-6 against the football betting online odds and posted an 11-5 over/under record. With nearly all of the key players returning for 2008-09 and the addition of running back LaMont Jordan, there is certainly reason to believe the Patriots will have another memorable season in 2008-09. Football betting online analysts assume the Patriots will once again dominate the weak AFC East, so there is no question among enthusiasts as to whether or not New England will reach the playoffs. To some fans of betting football, the only real question is whether or not the Patriots can finally achieve a completely perfect season.
Still, other football betting online analysts are not so optimistic about betting football on the Patriots in 2008-09. The loss of cornerback Asante Samuel will hurt the Patriots’ relatively old defensive corps that struggled at times last season. Furthermore, the Patriots barely squeaked by in a few of their victories last season and there is no guarantee the team will be so lucky again. Additionally, expectations for betting football on the Patriots are so high that the team’s betting lines will be astronomical. Betting football on the Patriots will often involve betting football on odds of at least 10 points, which many fans of betting football are shaky about. In other words, even if the team continues winning outright it may not be able to consistently cover its large betting spreads.
