With the NFL season at its midway point, Dave Tuley, Chalk's NFL handicapper, took a look at all 32 teams. What did we expect from them in the preseason? Which teams have disappointed? Which teams already have lost their season win totals? It's all here in Chalk's comprehensive midseason NFL betting review.
New England Patriots
Super Bowl odds: Opened 8-1; now 9-5
Vegas Rankings: Opened 2nd; now 1st
Season win total: 10.5; current wins: 8
ATS record: 5-1-2; over/unders: 4-4
What we thought before the season: When Tom Brady's four-game suspension was overturned right before the season, everyone was prepared to see an "us against the world" campaign from the defending Super Bowl champs.
What we've learned: The Patriots have dominated even more than expected, starting 8-0 and 5-1-2 against the spread (ATS).
