After simulating every game 10,000 times, the model is high on the New England Patriots (-3.5) to cover at home against the Washington Commanders. New England put together its best performance of the season in its last home game, springing an outright upset as a 7.5-point underdog against Buffalo in Week 7. Patriots quarterback Mac Jones completed 25 of 30 passes for 272 yards and two touchdowns, with four players going over 50 receiving yards.
Jones and the Patriots were unable to keep pace with Miami's league-leading offense last week, but it is playing against a softer offense on Sunday. The Commanders rank No. 20 in the NFL in total offense and are facing a Patriots defense that ranks No. 11 in yards allowed per game. New England will be able to control the tempo of the game, one reason why the Patriots are covering the spread in well over 50% of simulations. See which other
