Expert Pick #1 – New England Patriots +3 @-120
The Patriots have been more convincing lately, and I can see the value in backing them on free points. New England should keep this match tight, and I believe they will cover the number here, so I’m taking them as the first pick.
Expert Pick #2 – New England Patriots ML @+130
If you want to go with a riskier bet, then backing New England on the moneylines market might be a good choice. I rely on the Pats’ winning streak, and they could book their seventh straight win for the plus money odds.
Expert Pick #3 – Under 43 @-110
It is a clash of the two terrific defenses, and I don’t expect to see too many points here. Although the margin is pretty low, these two teams shouldn’t produce more than 43 points in total. Therefore, I’ll back the Under as the third pick.
