Jeremy Cluff writes: "The Patriots are 4-4, but in last place in the AFC East. They'll be 5-4 after this game." Bet the Patriots to cover vs. Colts

Bill Speros writes: "Sam Ehlinger got his first start at QB for the Colts in Week 8. Ehlinger kept the Colts in their loss to the Commanders but no one was stopping Terry McLaurin during his Indy homecoming. This means Ehlinger is making his second NFL start against Belichick. Fear The Dark Side."

Draft Kings: Take the Colts with the points vs. Patriots

It writes: "The 4-4 Patriots are 6.5 favorites, which seems high for this particular Patriots team, but Bill Belichick is always tough on young quarterbacks. Of their four wins, they’ve won by 6 or more points twice. Getting a game under Sam Ehlinger’s belt, and one where he played well should help, and I see this matchup as being closer than 6.5 points."

Fan Duel: Go with the Colts with the points vs. Patriots

Larry Rupp writes: "Oddsmakers are giving New England the edge in this contest. ESPN's FPI also favors the Patriots, but I find myself leaning the other way. While both of these teams have question marks at the QB position, one has a clear upper hand at RB. Jonathan Taylor is capable of torching a New England defense that ranks outside the top 25 teams in rush defense DVOA rating."
