Bet on the NFL In the final week of the 2010 NFL regular season the Super Bowl frontrunners, the New England Patrtiots host the Miami Dolphins at Gillette Stadium.
It is a battle of the AFC East, the Pats reigning in the top spot with a 13-2 record after destroying the Buffalo Bills 34-3 on the road during the Christmas weekend. Sportsbook record the Dolphins as third in the division with a 7-8 record after losing to the Detroit Lions 27-34 last Sunday.
A huge storm has been dumping snow all over New England the past few days, but a little weather isn’t going to hold Tom Brady back, coach Belichick, however, might. He hasn’t announced yet whether or not he will play his star quarterback in the seasons last regular game. They don’t want to repeat last year’s mistake of playing prize players who are critical to their playoff success, i.e. Pats receiver Wes Welker who suffered a knee injury in the last game which ended his season, and the Pats chances at the championship title as the Baltimore Ravens stomped them on their own Bean Town turf. Tom Brady has been making waves, and records this season. Last week he added an NFL record to his already impressive resume during New England's seventh straight win, which raised the Patriots' record to 13-2. Brady surpassed Bernie Kosar's mark of 308 passes without an interception. Brady, who was 15-of-27 for 140 yards and three touchdowns, has made 319 passes without a pick.
As a result of the big win last weekend against the Bills, the New Englad Patriots have earned their spot as the top seed in the AFC, and thus the home field advantage for the first three rounds.
As for the Miami Dolphins, well, their owner, Stephen Ross, was definitely not pleased with their loss this Holiday weekend. He even went as far as to call his disappointment tremendous to The Miami Herald. Perhaps it was beause they blew a late 10-point lead Sunday in a loss to last-place Detroit that left them 1-7 at home, matching the worst home record in franchise history. So now it’s looking like Ross is going to be finding a new coach to lead the way. Ross could cite plenty of reasons for changing coaches. Many fans find Sparano's team not only mediocre but dull, with a conservative offense that tends to settle for field goals because the play-calling is designed to limit mistakes by erratic quarterback Chad Henne. When betting on football remember that the Dolphins unfortunately, are last in the AFC in scoring.
