Many New England Patriot fans were unhappy with the 4 game suspension that Tom Brady served in relation to his involvement with the Deflategate story.
This 4 game suspension may have been a blessing in disguise given the fact that it gave Tom Brady a few extra weeks to rest up for a potential Super Bowl run. If any team is capable of winning of the Super Bowl this year, the Patriots definitely have to be one of the front runners.
In fact, Bovada currently has the Patriots listed at +275 Super bowl online betting odds in terms of winning Super Bowl 51. When you compare the Patriots to the other teams in the running, the next closest team is the Seattle Seahawks at +750 betting odds.
Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick is one of the best in the business. His signature hoodie helps him lay low while other coaches seem quite animated on the sidelines. Belichick will likely find himself in the Hall of Fame and the 2016-2017 NFL Season could be the one of the crowning achievements of head coaching careers.
According to sports betting analysts, Super Bowl 51 is the Patriots Super Bowl to lose. Even if Tom Brady were somehow taken out of the starting lineup, the team has proven that they can get the job done without the leadership of Tom Brady. Now that Rob Gronkowski is back to full health, combined with the addition of the upstart WR Chris Hogan, it is entirely possible that the Patriots could run the table and win Super Bowl 51.
