Check out our new NFL PRO Report, where we highlight factors that provide betting edges — like large wagers, historically profitable betting systems, model projections and expert picks — that when combined with sharp money can powerfully detail the smartest bets on a given slate.
Barring any additional positive COVID-19 tests, the New England Patriots vs. Kansas City Chiefs Week 4 game is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET on Monday.
Cam Newton will not play due to contracting the coronavirus, meaning backup Brian Hoyer is expected to start for New England.
Prior to the news of Newton’s positive test, the Patriots sat as 7-point underdogs against the Chiefs for much of the week.
However, with Hoyer now under center, the Patriots are now 10.5-point underdogs.
According to our Bet Labs software, which archives historic NFL betting data since the start of the 2003 season, the Patriots have never been double-digit underdogs in the regular season.
Now, that doesn’t necessarily mean it has never happened. However, since we started tracking NFL odds 18 seasons ago, New England has never been this large of an underdog.
The previous record? The Patriots have closed at +9 twice since 2003 — the first occurrence against the Texans in Houston on Jan. 3, 2010 and again on Sept. 11, 2016 against the Cardinals in Arizona.
However, New England did close as a 14-point underdog back in in the 2002 postseason. Anyone remember this somewhat large upset?
