SBG Global Opening Line: Patriots -4.5 , Total 56.5

Sunday?s game between the New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts could end up being the most watched regular season game in NFL history. The Patriots come in at 8-0 and unbeaten while the Colts are 7-0 and unbeaten. Indianapolis is the defending Super Bowl Champions while the Patriots are considered by many to be a dynasty. The Patriots are a road favorite over the defending Super Bowl champs and with good reason. New England is on pace to break the all-time NFL record for points scored in a season held by the Minnesota Vikings and quarterback Tom Brady is on pace to shatter the touchdown record in a season. To stay unbeaten the Patriots must win against the last team to beat them, the Indianapolis Colts. SBG Global reports that early betting has the public taking Patriots on the Road.

“I really think that’s why you’re in the league, for games like this,” Colts coach Tony Dungy said. Colts quarterback Peyton Manning has led Indianapolis to wins against New England in the last three meetings between the two teams after being dominated for many years previously by the Patriots. New England is getting a lot of press as having a chance to go unbeaten but it is the Colts that have won 12 straight games. “Two undefeated teams, and obviously with the history between these teams, it makes for a great matchup,” Brady said. “You know anytime you play the Colts it’s always an exciting game for all the players and all the coaches. You know when you’re playing them, you’re playing the best.” Indianapolis has won 13 straight home games since a playoff loss in 2006 to Pittsburgh. This is the first time in NFL history two teams are playing each other with undefeated records through at least seven games.

The Patriots have dominated the opposition this season, winning by at least 17 points each time. The last win was a 52-7 humiliation of the Washington Redskins. It was the eighth straight game Brady has thrown for at least three touchdowns, an NFL record to start a season. The Patriots finally have receivers this season for Brady and he has made the most of them. Randy Moss leads the NFL in yards and touchdowns while Wes Welker has been unstoppable in recent weeks. Brady has an unheard of passer rating of 136.2 while Manning is tied for second at 102.9.

The Colts continue to score points as well but not always through the air. Running backs Joseph Addai and Kenton Keith have combined for 936 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns. The Colts lead the NFL with 12 rushing touchdowns. “New England is a different challenge for us because they’ve got a lot of guys who can make plays,” Dungy said. “So far, so good, but it’s going to be tougher against these guys.” The Colts have never been thought of as having a defense but this year has been different. The Colts are giving up 14.6 points per game, compared to 15.9 by New England. The Colts have the NFL’s best pass defense. Last year in the AFC Championship game the Patriots blew a 21-3 lead. “They’re unbeaten and they’re the Super Bowl champions,” Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. “Until someone beats them, they’re the best team in the league.?
