NFL Week 11 New England at San Francisco

The New England Patriots were unable to defeat to the Seattle Seahawks at home in week 10. Could the Patriots get back on track in Week 11 of the 2016 NFL Season against the 49ers?

From a sports betting perspective, the Patriots traveling across country to play a 4:05PM PST kickoff time against the 49ers presents several interesting possibilities. Current NFL online betting odds for this matchup have the Patriots as -7.5 point road favorites.

Most sports bettors have heard the theory about double digit home underdogs. In this case, the 49ers have opened the week at +14 underdogs. Since year 2000, double digit home underdogs have covered the spread over 60% of the time according to SportingCharts.

There’s also the whole aspect of New England playing the late game on Sunday and having to travel across country to play at Levi’s Stadium against the 49ers.

With all of this in mind, San Francisco has an inferior defense when compared to the Seahawks and the Patriots will likely have a field day throwing all over the depleted 49ers secondary. When you combine the fact that the 49ers aren’t very offensively talented, it’s plain to see that the Patriots will likely win this game.

The bigger question remains: Will Tom Brady and the Patriots beat the spread? New England is currently 7-2 ATS going into Week 11.
