    The Pats own the biggest spread so far of any game next sunday (4.5) except for the Steelers (8.5) over the Ravens.:rocker:

    Pats are giving,they're favored..
    11-04-07
    4:15 PM 423 Patriots (New England) off -5.5(-110) o56.5(-110)
    424 Colts (Indianapolis) off 5.5(-110) u56.5(-110)

    Since HFA is worth 3 points in the line,if the game were at Foxborough,it would be Pats -8.5

    An oft-repeated myth. In truth, it can't be quantified, and isn't. Means little in Miami, for example; while, in Indianapolis, it could easily be worth three, maybe even more, depending on the team coming in. It's the circumstances around the stadium that really move the line. Grass vs. turf. Dome vs. open-air. Time zone travel vs. local travel.

    For the Patriots, I'm guessing it's not that big of a shift, given the success they've had in Indy, the surface that favors them, their experience in important games. Maybe a point? But, again, not easily quantified, so odds-makers really don't try.

    Oh...... Duh (sorry).

    Daaaa-ym. Colts are 4.5 points DOGS, in their own house, with the Lombardi in the trophy case out front AND being undefeated to boot?

    wow

    If the Pats continue to win and the Jets keep losing (or even if they win a couple) I'm just looking forward to the point spread for that game.........I'm thinking we might see the Pats favored by 30.

    To be clear... Vegas doesnt like the Pats, Vegas likes a certain percentage of people wagering on the Pats. If more people wager on the Colts, the line would go down.
