Give me a line

Patriots have to be favorite.
Somewhere between 3.5 and 7 - total 48.


I'm wrong all the time, though.

Pats -6 is about right, I'm thinkin'

I was thinking Pats open 6.5 points favorite with an over of 51 but what do I know?

I think you're very close.
My total was too low - has to be at least 50.

I hope you guys are right. Philly had to beat Atlanta and Minnesota. New England had to beat Tennessee and Jacksonville. It almost looks too easy. I hope they get points and they probably have to for an even spread..........I'll be back in action on Philadelphia. If NE is the fave I'll take the points and the money line, vacation time is coming in February.......

NE has not even played a team that's this good all year long.

I mean isn't this the same game as today's early one?

Eagles are better than the Jags in all phases of the game except maybe on the ground but Belichek gets another week to prepare.

They are better in every aspect, they would be 15 point faves vs Jacksonville. They are even better on the ground because they throw short passes to their back. Jacksonville is a one trick pony on offense and Bortles can't come close to Foles. People forgot that Foles can air it out he's like the best "back up" in this league. If he was on Jacksonville, he would be the starter. That defense gave up 17 points in the playoffs and 10 of them came off turnovers vs Atlanta. Its not even close between them and Jacksonville. Turnovers are the only way i see them losing.

New England Patriots -5 1/2 total 48 1/2

this game t urns out to be a very old owner's rivalry game. Lurie is the Eagle owner and he comes from Newton,Ma. Kraft is from Brookline, Ma. those 2 high schools are one of the oldest Thanksgiving day football rivals in the country.

I just can't believe you will ever hear "The Super Bowl Winning QB, Nick Foles."

I said the same about hearing "The President of the United States, Donald Trump". But the unlikely sometimes occurs.

Apples and Oranges. POTUS keeps winning and Dick Vermiel ain't around anymore.

You got your wish, they are 5.5 underdogs. If you need help with a second mortgage my rates are avoidable.
