According to MyBookie, the team is +840 to win Super Bowl LVI. This ranks them sixth amongst NFL teams. Here are some reasons the Patriots are a great Super Bowl future so you can plan your bets against their Super Bowl odds.
Why Bet on the Patriots to Win Super Bowl LVI?
New England’s 2021 Season Recap So Far
If you thought the New England Patriots’ dynasty ended when Tom Brady departed for Tampa Bay, you were wrong. The Patriots are back, thriving under Bill Belichick, Mac Jones, and a terrific defensive attack.
Last season, New England started Cam Newton at quarterback, limiting their ability to win. Newton is past his prime, which has been evident with his brief 2021 stint in Carolina. The Patriots finished with a 7-9 record, which landed them in third place in the AFC East.
New England is currently the first seed in the AFC, and they have won six straight games. They will face the Bills in Orchard Park on Monday before heading into their bye week. It’s an excellent time for the team, and they have proven their strength, but people are still questioning the franchise.
Josh McDaniels has taken the training wheels off Mac Jones, and it looks like this will allow him to win the NFL Rookie of the Year. Jones is the ideal quarterback in New England and shows many similarities to Tom Brady in 2002.
Jones may not have the strongest arm or staggering athletic ability. However, he has tremendous feet, does not make many mistakes, and completes a high percentage of passes. Jones is completing 70.3% of his passes in 2021 with a 16:8 TD to INT ratio.
Jones has not missed many throws, and it’s getting to a point where he is expected to lead the team to victory as a rookie. Nobody expected Jones to win Rookie of the Year, but his success has made the Patriots’ offense strong enough to win a championship.
The Run Game
Mac Jones has been supported by a hefty dose of running the football. When New England can run the football, it helps Jones settle in the pocket. It also opens up the play-action game for McDaniels to call.
The Patriots have a slew of running backs, but the two beasts in the backfield have been Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson. Harris is averaging 4.2 yards per carry and has scored eight touchdowns this season.
Stevenson does not have as many carries or yards, but he averages 4.6 yards per carry. The combination of these two backs has been great for Jones and the offense.
The best part of the Patriots in 2021 has been the defense. New England has the fourth-ranked unit in football in terms of yards per game. They are third in passing defense and first in points per game.
New England only allows 15.8 points per game thanks to players like Matt Judon and J.C. Jackson. The defense is meshing at the correct time, and it’s paying dividends.
The combination of all these reasons is why you should bet New England to win Super Bowl LVI. The dynasty is back, so start preparing your bet slips.
