NFL | New England 27 @ Arizona 13 | 12/13 | 1:15 AM UTC
ANALYSIS: Now that this is +2.5, I have to take it as I don't see it getting higher and perhaps dropping back down. Seems like a talent mismatch in favor of the Cardinals -- especially on offense -- but a bigger coaching mismatch in favor of the Patriots, although New England is downgraded because Matt Patricia is actually allowed to even speak to the offense much less call the plays. Bill Belichick is basically a .500 ATS head coach with the team when Tom Brady is not his QB. Jakobi Meyers and Damien Harris are both out. Meyers leads all New England wideouts in receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns. If the Cardinals can't win this game on the longest possible bye a team can have in the NFL, then the one-time Patriots draft pick Kliff Kingsbury deserves to be fired.
