We’re back with more of the latest NFL betting tips! Capping off the double-header on Saturday, we have two exciting teams of the AFC facing one another in a highly-anticipated clash! Both the New England Patriots & Indianapolis Colts had their bye weeks in week 14 - now they’re fresh to battle on the field on Saturday evening.
Despite having a bit of a slow start to the regular season, the New England Patriots have settled into the league and are now top of the AFC, with an extremely strong 9-4 record. Heading into their bye week, the Patriots were on a seven-game winning streak. On top of that, there have been some notable playoff teams that New England have defeated, including their performance against the Buffalo Bills in tough conditions. That was following a 36-13 victory against the Tennessee Titans - who are the no.2 seed in the AFC.
In the hunt for the playoffs, the Indianapolis Colts have also had a good regular season so far, and currently sit as the No.6 seed in the AFC. The Colts held the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a one-score game in week 12, before a 31-0 shutout win against their own division rivals in the Houston Texans. Now, fresh off their bye week, they face arguably their toughest test of the regular season, facing the no.1 Patriots. Will they be able to keep up with the best AFC team? Can they cause an upset?
At the top of the AFC, Saturday night’s matchup is going to be a very close encounter, but ultimately we’re tipping the New England Patriots to take the win back to Foxborough. Surprisingly, the No.1 seed aren’t favorites according to a number of US bookmakers, including FanDuel.
So, our latest tip involves taking advantage of FanDuel’s generous odds. Get the Patriots to win by 1-13 points at odds of +180!
