Tom Brady Likely To Break Streak For Most Games Favored In A Row During 2018

Tom Brady will take the field against the Texans as the favorite for the 50th straight game in week 1. The last time he and the Patriots were underdogs heading into a contest was week 2 of 2015 against the Bills in a game where New England was +2. The Patriots ended up winning 40-32.

Over the last 50 games, including the playoffs, Brady is 40-10 overall, beating opponents by an average of 10.7 points per game, as Evan Abrams The Action Network relays. He’s thrown 107 passing touchdowns and only 22 interceptions during that streak.

Brady has gone 32-16-2 against the spread, covering the line by 2.4 points per game. If a bettor would have wagered $100 on each of his games, they would have made $1,563.

Only three teams have beat Brady twice during the streak: the Dolphins, Eagles, and Broncos. In fact, as Abrams notes, the NFC East is the only division to bettors have been able to make money wagering against Brady.

Kurt Warner holds the longest streak of being favored with 55 starts and Brady should break that this season, as he’s projected to be favored in every game leading up to the Pats week 15 matchup.

Where’s The Money Going In College Football Betting?

Sports betting is legal in more states than ever before and college football is in full swing. David Purdum of ESPN.com put together a piece (well worth an entire read) that broke down where the public has their money on this season. Let’s take a look at the highlights:

  • Ohio State has more bets on them to win the national championship than any other program at the both the Westgate SuperBook and MGM.
  • Clemson has the most money on them to win it all at Caesars Place, MGM, and William Hill. The Tigers have a whooping 22% of William Hill’s liability on them.
  • Clemson opened as a +125 favorite to make the playoffs, though sharp money came in and pushed the line to -180 “We took some sharp money on Clemson,” Westgate director John Murray told Purdum. “I think we opened Clemson a little bit too high, because we had guys immediately come in and bet them at +125 and even money.”
  • The largest season-win total bet the Westgate SuperBook had taken was on Oregon State. A house player, meaning a VIP casino guest, bet to win $80,000 on the Beavers to win less than 2.5 games at -130.
  • Murray told Purdum that a sharp player bet Oklahoma at 6-1 to make the college football playoffs. The line has since been moved to 4-1.

Preseason Week 3 Notes: Broncos, Peterson, Lions, Giants

The Broncos paid Case Keenum starter money to come in and create stability at the position and he looked exactly like the player they wanted during a half of work on Friday against the Redskins. He completed 12-of-18 passes for 148 yards, leading Denver to three scoring drives.

Keenum clearly has a favorite receiver, targeting Emmanuel Sanders eight times during the contest. Here is his target breakdown from the game:

Sanders caught four of the targets for 61 yards and he added a rushing touchdown. Thomas is going higher in drafts, but Sanders is the guy to own and provides tremendous value with an ESPN ADP OF 67, though he’s likely to rise over the next week.

Here’s more from the Broncos as well as other teams who took the field on Friday night:

  • Courtland Sutton looked the part of a pro, hauling in all three of his targets for 45 yards. He needs to be drafted for the upside.
  • Adrian Peterson looked spry during a half of action for the Redskins. This is now his job to lose and he should be taken in the 7th round in the Rex BurkheadIsaiah CrowellDuke Johnson Jr. range.
  • The Lions‘ offense struggled yet again with Matt Stafford completing 9-of-18 passes for 113 yards. His receivers dropped a few balls and no pass-catcher came away from the game with a good performance. Kenny Golladay and Golden Tate each had four targets, most on the team.
  • Evan Engram picked up where he left off last season, catching three of four targets before suffering a concussion.
  • Eli Manning had no Odell Beckham or Saquon Barkley to use, but he looked adequate, completing 17-of-23 for 188 yards. Sterling Shepard had 8 of those targets and while he’ll get less attention during the regular season with the stars back, I’d rather him over players like Jordy Nelson and Jamison Crowder among others.
