Why The New England Patriots Are Legit Super Bowl 56 Contenders

  • The New England Patriots have +1800 odds to win Super Bowl 56.
  • They are the tenth option on the board and fifth in the AFC.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Patriots have strung together four straight wins, as they’ve beaten the New York Jets, Los Angeles Chargers, Carolina Panthers and Cleveland Browns.

Despite the win streak and now 6-4 record, the NFL betting sites still list them with the tenth-shortest odds to win the Super Bowl.

Super Bowl 56 Odds

  • New England Patriots +1800

However, New England is just a few plays away from being 9-1 with the best record in the NFL.

In Mac Jones’ first game Damien Harris fumbled in the red zone with 3:18 remaining while down 17-16, Nick Folk hit the upright on a game-winning field goal against the Buccaneers and the Pats took the Cowboys into overtime where anything could’ve happened.

Better Than Their Record Suggests

Of all the teams in the NFL, only the Buffalo Bills have a better point differential than the Patriots (+98). They have a 54-point advantage over the next best team with four losses, the New Orleans Saints.

The Pats are also just one of three teams to be undefeated on the road this year. The undefeated road record carries weight as it looks unlikely New England will win their division, meaning they’ll have plenty of road games in the playoffs.

The Patriots have scored the sixth-most points (275) and allowed the second-fewest (177).

Given their totals, having the 10th-shortest odds seems pretty valuable.

Mac Jones Leading The Way

Although he’s just a rookie, Jones is already looking like the franchise quarterback Patriots fans were looking for. He’s completing 69% of his passes this year which ranks fourth among quarterbacks and is also above players like Russell Wilson and Joe Burrow in QBR.

Those betting on the NFL can find Jones with generous odds in the Offensive Rookie of the Year race as it’s essentially become a two-man battle for the title.

Offensive Rookie of the Year

  • Ja'Marr Chase -150
  • Mac Jones +125

New England is favored to extend their winning streak to five games as they’re six-point favorites over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 11 as the Thursday Night Football game.
