Last Sunday it moved to a pick'em before it fully swung in the direction of the Colts, who were a 2-point favorite by Monday morning. That spread has held throughout the week. The pick: Patriots +2.The Patriots are not only coming into this game on a seven-game winning streak, but they've also covered every single one of those contests as well. The Colts will be a tough challenge, however, as they roll out star running back . Stopping the run has been a weakne s for New England, but Bill Belichick historically has been able to take away an opponent's best weapon on offense. If he does that with Taylor, it's hard to imagine that will be able to lead the Colts to victory. Indy also hasn't fared well at home with a 3-7 ATS mark in its last 10 games at Lucas Oil Stadium.Key trend: Patriots are 6-1 ATS following a bye week. The total opened at 43.5 but has bumped up quite a bit as this week as progre sed. It bumped to 44 on Sunday evening and then continued to rise to begin the week and has since risen to 45.5.The pick: Under 45.5. Both of these teams' bread and butter offensively is to run the football. If they can move the ball effectively on the ground, that inherently lowers the scoring ceiling for this game. The Patriots are also one of the best teams in the NFL at keeping opponents out of the end zone. Once their opponents have reached the red zone, New England is only allowing them to score a touchdown on 25% Edwin Diaz Jersey of their trips over the last three games (best in the NFL). Key trend: Under is 8-2 in Patriots last 10 road games. NE QB #10 CMP%70.3YDs2869TD16INT8YD/Att7.47 Pa sing touchdowns:1.5 (Over +110, Under -140)Pa sing yards:226.5 (Over -115, Under -115)Interceptions: 0.5 (Over -120, Under -110)Completions: 20.5 (Over -125, Under -105)Longest pa sing completion:34.5 (Over -110, Under-120)I lean toward the Under on Jones' pa sing yards prop of 226.5 at even money. While he'll likely throw more than just three times as he did against the in Week 13, Jones hasn't been asked to uncork it a bunch during this winning streak. Pete Alonso Jersey Even when you exclude Week 13, he's only gone over this total twice in six games. Jones also ranks 24th among 32 qualified quarterbacks against zone coverage this season. The Colts have lined up in zone on 72% of their defensive snaps this season, which is the eighth-highest rate in the NFL. WAS QB #11 CMP%63.3YDs2948TD22INT5YD/Att7.02 Pa sing touchdowns:1.5 (Over +130, Under -160)Pa sing yards:226.5 (Over -115, Under- 115)Interceptions: 0.5 (Over -110, Under -120)Longest pa sing completion:34.5 (Over -115, Under -115)Rushing yards: 9.5 (Over -125, Under -105)The value isn't fantastic at -160, but the Under 1.5 touchdowns for Wentz is a solid play. As we noted above, the Patriots have been great at keeping teams out of the end zone. This season, New England has allowed the third-fewest pa sing touchdowns in the NFL (15). total receiving yards: Over 25.5 (-120). Henry has blo somed into one of Travis D'Arnaud Jersey Jones' go-to weapons and has a solid matchup in front of him with the Colts. This season, Indy is allowing opposing tight ends to average 67.2 receiving yards per game. total receiving yards: Under 29.5 (-115). The number is just too low for what we've seen from Hilton this season. He's only gone over this total once (Week 6 vs. Houston) and has floating around 50% of the offensive snaps in his games played this season. One catch could burn us here, so proceed with caution, but there isn't much that Hilton has shown to suggest he'll go over here.
