The Patriots enter play with a record of 7-2 and will be coming of their bye week. New England head coach Bill Belichick has been good in this situation coming off a bye. He will have an extra week to find some holes in the Carolina defense to allow Tom Brady to operate. The Panthers have been winning games with their defense but their offense has not been very impressive. Their two biggest challenges to date came in games against the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers. What resulted offensively were seven points scored against Seattle at home and 10 points scored on the road to San Francisco. Neither Seattle nor San Francisco have dynamic passing games this season as they both rely on power run games and defense. New England has more dynamic to their offense and sport tight end Rob Gronkowski back in the lineup. When we last saw New England they posted 55 points at home to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Over their past four games the team has scored 27 points or greater so the team is beginning to click on offense. The Patriots also expect a key member of their offense back as running back Shane Vereen is expected to play after suffering a small fracture to his wrist. Now New England has a solid 1-2 punch in the backfield with speed to the outside in Vereen and the clever hard knocking between the tackles running provided by running back Stevan Ridley. Couple this run package with their weapons in the pass game and this Patriots team can go far in the playoffs.
With our NFL pro football pick for Monday we will play on the New England Patriots +3 points against the Carolina Panthers but prior to wagering read about online sportsbook reviews.
