Are the 2016 Patriots the best NFL bet of all time?

If you bet on football, then you’ve probably noticed the New England Patriots are pulling in Zuckerberg kinda money for their backers this season. 

The Pats are 15-3 against the spread heading into Super Bowl 51 and that ranks as the No. 2 betting record in the NFL ever. The No. 1 spot belongs to the 1989 San Francisco 49ers. They went 16-3 that season on their way to winning Super Bowl XXIV (a game in which they also covered the spread by 34 points). 

But which team deserves the distinction of being called the best football bet of all time? I give you my answer in the short vid above. Feel free to give me your thoughts on it also on Twitter @JonnyOddsShark

Before you check out the vid, here’s a look at the best and worst bets of all time in the NFL by ATS record:
