While the New England Patriots are always favorites to do well in the NFL and they’re always expected to make the playoffs and we are even making a 2017 Super Bowl prediction, I don’t know if this is going to be a good year for the team. If you’re looking for football betting advice, all you really have to do is consider that Tom Brady is going to be out the first four games of the season most likely. That’s a really big deal that could put stress on the team that it just doesn’t need.
Jimmy Garoppolo is certainly no Tom Brady. Sure, he’s a capable quarterback and we have no doubt that he’ll perform alright, but he isn’t going to crush his opponents like Brady does, and without their star quarterback on the field at all for those first four games, it isn’t likely that the team is going to come out on top for all the matches. If the team isn’t able to win at least a couple of those first four games, Brady is going to have to work really hard to keep the team going throughout the rest of the season. Heck, he’ll need a 10-2 record throughout the rest of the year, and that’s pushing it even for a quarterback of his caliber. Especially if Dion Lewis or Julian Edelman are injured at some point throughout the season.
If you were planning on betting big money on the Patriots, you might want to consider some of the other free sports picks that are recommended by a football betting expert throughout the season, because the Patriots just aren’t going to be as reliable as they usually are. As long as you take this into consideration, and you don’t expect them to crush the opposition like they normally would, you should be able to avoid some costly betting mistakes for the 2016-2017 season.
