Ahead of the coming season today we preview New England Patriots Super Bowl 2021 odds. The New England Patriots won the AFC East last season. With a 12-4 record. They made it to the AFC Championship game before they were eliminated by the Kansas City Chiefs, who went on to win the Super Bowl.
After dominating the AFC East and to some extent the NFL for decades. The Patriots will look a little different this season. Really different.
Future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady left town during the offseason. To sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Making it the first time the team will start the season without Brady under center since 2002. 18 years!
However, with Bill Belichick still in charge. The Patriots are still considered a very good team, which is why their odds to win the Super Bowl is +1200.
Updated Patriots Super Bowl 2021 Odds Predictions
The Patriots will have a fight on their hands in the division this season with both the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets expected to challenge the Brady-less Patriots for the division title. Belichick will likely have to do his best coaching this season with eight players, including starters Dont’a Hightower, Patrick Chung, and Marcus Cannon, opting out of the 2020 season because of the coronavirus.
In addition to the holes they have to fill on defense, the Patriots are still trying to determine who will be their opening day starter.
They already had Brian Hoyer and Jarrett Stidham on the roster and added former Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton in free agency. Even though Newton is the most experienced and accomplished quarterback, Belichick plans on having all three players compete for the job in training camp.
Super Bowl 2021 Prediction:
The Patriots will have a good team this season, but with a new starting quarterback and players opting out, their reign at the top of the division is over. Expect them to finish second in the AFC East and make an early playoff exit.
