Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2018 Nfl Preseason Football Page 8 -

If we know Bill Belichick and Tom Brady as well as we feel we do, you would not want to be wear­ing an Ea­gles uni­form tonight. Not af­ter last year’s red-faced loss to Philadel­phia in the Su­per Bowl, a game in which the Pa­tri­ots en­tered 16-0 SU all-time un­der Bill Belichick in the play­offs against teams they did not face dur­ing the reg­u­lar sea­son. That mark is now 16-1 fol­low­ing Philly’s 41-33 shootout vic­tory in which New Eng­land amassed 613 yards yet man­aged to lose the con­test. FYI: NFL teams were 38-0-1 SU in games in which they gained 600+ yards un­til Su­per Bowl LII. That aside, our well-oiled ma­chine re­ports that the Pats own a 9-2 SU and 8-3 ATS mark in this pre­sea­son se­ries. In ad­di­tion, Belichick is 8-2 SU and 7-3 ATS at home dur­ing the pre­sea­son when com­ing off a home game, in­clud­ing as a fa­vorite of more than 3 points. So don’t let the line, nor the glossy rings that the op­po­nents own, back you down. Use it, and this, to your full ad­van­tage –
