Betting tips for the Patriots

The New England Patriots are enjoying an impressive season in the AFC East Division, clinching top spot with 9 wins from 11 matches and this matches their division-winning form of last season. Last year they failed to go on to win the AFC Conference or the Super Bowl, but they certainly have the intent to challenge again this year.

The 2015 season brought joy during the regular season for the Patriots, followed by disappointment in the play-offs. They claimed the AFC East Division in impressive style, with 12 wins from their 16 matches, and were optimistic about their chances of a Super Bowl success. This optimism increased further when they beat the Kansas City Chiefs 27-20 at the Divisional stage, but the eventual Super Bowl winners the Broncos upset the odds to beat them in the AFC Championship game. This was a massive shock for the Patriots, but they have regrouped and look sure to win their division again this season. What makes this feat all the more impressive is the fact that the Patriots started the season minus one of their star performers – Tom Brady at quarterback – who missed the first four games due to suspension. Part of the reason that they coped so well is that they learned the lessons from last season’s AFC Championship loss, where the Broncos superior defence proved key, and invested heavily in improving this part of their squad. Don’t’a Hightower and James Collins together have been one of the strongest lineback partnerships in this season’s NFL, while both Chandler Jones and Dominique Easley have the best stats in the league for their respective positions. They are not quite as strong when it comes to offence, but they have still produced numerous impressive results and performances during the regular season, including 7 wins from their first 8 matches, which has led to the bookies making them 5/2 odds-on favourites to win the 2017 Super Bowl. They certainly have a strong shot at it, but if you prefer to wait until later in the season before gambling, you can always try $5 Million Touchdown at Jackpot City instead.

This is an online casino slot game that is all about the NFL, with its five reels filled with pictures of cheerleaders, footballs, referees whistles and players – and the latter icon also serves as the wild. This means that it can stand in when you are missing one icon to give you a matching line, which is the point of this game. Get a matching row and a payout, perhaps even the jackpot of $5 Million could be yours, while the bonus round gives you prizes for scoring a touchdown during a simulated NFL game.
