Brady and the Pats are Big Favorites vs Cincy

It didn’t take long for Tom Brady to get reacquainted with his New England Patriots teammates, as the Pats (4-1) rolled to a 33-13 victory over the lowly Cleveland Browns in Brady’s return. Next up on the docket is a date with the struggling Cincinnati Bengals (2-3) at Gillette Stadium.

Shark Bites
  • The Bengals are 5-18-1 SU in their last 24 games in Week 6.
  • The Patriots are 4-1 ATS in their last five games as home favorites.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 11 of the Bengals' last 13 games as road underdogs.

Cincy hasn’t enjoyed facing the Pats in recent clashes between the squads. The Bengals are 1-5 SU and ATS in their last five games against New England. The Pats, who fell to Buffalo in their last home game, are 9-0 SU and 7-2 ATS in their previous nine home contests after suffering a loss in Massachusetts.

Sportsbooks opened the Patriots as 9-point chalk with a total of 47.

That’s a good omen for UNDER bettors, as the Bengals have gone below the closing total in 11 of their last 13 as road underdogs.

Brady played like a man possessed against the Browns, throwing three touchdowns for 406 yards. The veteran amassed a 70 percent completion rate to go along with a 127.7 quarterback rating. It’s safe to assume Touchdown Tom isn’t dealing with any rust from the suspension.
