Betting market: Spread bets and dollars are both within a handful of points of 50% as of writing (see live data here), with the public clearly undecided about how it feels on this one.

The line has been in limbo between NE -6 and -6.5 for most of the week, and there was even a brief bump down to -5.5.

It’s highly unlikely that we’ll see the Texans available at +7 again, which was last available on June 8. Mark Gallant

Trends to know: As Mark noted, the line for this game has moved against the Patriots since New England opened as a 7-point favorite.

Are you betting against Tom Brady? I wouldn’t. Since 2003, when the line moves against TB12, the Patriots are 58-36-5 against-the-spread (62%). John Ewing
