Patriots set as 2.5-point favorites
Mon, Oct 19th 5:20pm EDT
The Patriots are coming off an ugly loss to the Broncos, but the 49ers just proved that an ugly loss can easily be followed up by a big win. This game being played in New England is likely the only reason that the Patriots are favored. Starting right by the key number, it will be interesting to see whether bettors initially back a struggling Patriots' offense or a 49ers team that is coming off a massive win.
