7. Over the last six years of Brady’s career, he was listed as an underdog just seven times (or 6.4% of his starts).

In that span, Brady was listed as an underdog vs. only three different QBs: Patrick Mahomes, Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees.

8. Brady career as an underdog:

  • 37-23 straight up
  • 41-17-2 against the spread
  • 51-9 ATS when placed in a 6-point teaser

9. In 2001, the New England Patriots entered the regular season with 60-1 odds to win it all. Since the beginning of the Wild Card round in 1978, only the 1999 Rams had longer odds to win the Super Bowl than Brady’s ’01 Patriots.

10. When the Super Bowl is a one-possession game (+/- 8 pts), Brady had 16 TDs, 5 INTs and a completion percentage of 65.9%.

11. There have been 274 different starting quarterbacks since 2001 (including playoffs). Tom Brady had 5.3% of all QB wins in that span.

12. Brady may have seven Super Bowl wins, but one thing he’s never done is cover the point spread in consecutive Super Bowls.

John Elway, Troy Aikman, Terry Bradshaw, Bob Griese and Bart Starr all accomplished it.

13. Tom Brady has been to 10 Super Bowls. His seven straight up wins is the most all-time and his five against the spread covers are also a record.

  • Tom Brady (5): Super Bowl 36, 49, 51, 53, 55
  • Joe Montana (3): Super Bowl 16, 19, 24
  • Roger Staubach (3): Super Bowl 6, 10, 12
  • Terry Bradshaw (3): Super Bowl 9, 13, 14

14. The one thing he didn’t do? Cover against Eli. Brady went 0-5 against the spread vs. Eli Manning, his most ATS losses without a win vs. any quarterback.
