Most NFL betting experts believe that only two serious tests remain. Online NFL betting experts see the Monday night game at Baltimore and the home game against Pittsburgh as the two remaining obstacles to a perfect season.
Online NFL betting odds on New England games are already extremely high. The NFL betting oddsmakers can’t make the lines on New England games high enough. That should tell you that the public thinks New England can indeed go 16-0. Since the perfect season of 1972 for the Miami Dolphins there have been five teams that started 11-0 or better. The 1984 Miami Dolphins started 11-0 but did not go unbeaten and eventually lost in the Super Bowl to San Francisco. Online NFL betting experts remember that the 1985 Chicago Bears started 12-0 but lost a regular season game to Miami to end the streak. They routed New England in that year’s Super Bowl. The 1991 Washington Redskins started 11-0 but were never thought of as a “great” team by most online NFL betting experts. They beat Buffalo in that year’s Super Bowl. The 1998 Denver Broncos went 13-0 to the start the season but lost in the regular season. They did win the Super Bowl that year beating Atlanta. Two years ago Indianapolis started 13-0 but their perfect season went awry and then they lost in the playoffs to Pittsburgh.
