Betting on NFL Week 1 Steelers vs. Patriots Odds and Trends

September 5th, 2019 NFL Football, Offshore Betting

To begin with, there is no dynasty in NFL history like the Patriots. In an era set up to punish success, New England has cracked the code. And as long as head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady are together its likely to remain that way. Counter to that is the mounting frustration of the Steelers. Pittsburgh used to be a coveted betting on NFL pick but no more. Impatience is mounting due to their last Super Bowl season coming in 2010. Namely head coach Mike Tomlin has caught much of the fan’s wrath for the dry spell.

Pittsburgh Steelers Overview

Last season was betting on NFL disaster by Steeler standards. Pittsburgh finished 9-6-1 straight up and 8-8 vs. the line. But they missed the playoffs for the first time in five seasons. Malcontents Le’ Veon Bell and Antonio Brown are gone. Veteran quarterback Ben Roethlisberger remains. The defense is ok but nowhere near Steel Curtain dominance. Certainly, it’s a lot to ask of the 37-year-old Roethlisberger to carry the team. But that is what Tomlin and the Steelers are doing.

New England Patriots Overview

A clear difference in reputation separates the Patriots from the rest. New England is the most popular offshore betting choice in pro football. Despite the public popularity the Patriots prevail as a highly profitable team. Especially as a favorite at Gillette Stadium. The rest of the New England roster seems to change like a revolving door. But Belichick and Brady are the constants that keep the Patriots on top. A lot of gamblers have lost a lot of money guessing when it all ends. So far it is yet to happen.
