NFL betting odds have been greatly influenced by the injury to New England quarterback Tom Brady.
Normally the NFL football betting odds would have seen New England a hefty favorite over Miami at home but this matchup is different. The Patriots are not getting nearly the respect they have in previous seasons in NFL betting.
NFL betting odds still have the Patriots as the home favorite against the Dolphins but nowhere near what they were a year ago. Last season at home the Patriots were 22 point favorites on the NFL betting pointspread. This year with the Dolphins being improved and Brady being out, that NFL football betting number is drastically lower. New England has won 7 of the last 10 meetings between the two teams according to NFL betting stats. They are 6-4 against the NFL football betting pointspread in those games. At New England, the Patriots have won four of the last five meetings according to NFL betting stats. They are 3-2 against the NFL betting pointspread in those games. The under is 6-3-1 versus the NFL betting number in the last 10 meetings.
NFL betting stats show that the Patriots are no longer the Super Bowl favorites. Originally the Patriots were one of the top teams but without quarterback Tom Brady many NFL betting experts believe they have no choice of winning the Super Bowl this season. In this NFL betting matchup against Miami the Patriots still have the edge in most categories. Although the Dolphins are improved with Chad Pennington at quarterback, they do not have the overall talent of New England. Miami will look to run the ball and keep the game close in this NFL betting matchup. New England still has a solid running game with Laurence Maroney and explosive receivers in Randy Moss and Wes Welker. The Patriots may have lost Brady but they are still a formidable team and a deserving NFL football betting favorite in this Week 3 matchup.
