The other game that holds a lot of interest today is set to go in about an hour’s time as Tom Brady and the New England Patriots visit the Steel City of Pittsburgh for a key AFC Conference matchup. The Pats are favoured by 7.5 points and are quoted at 1.32, while the Steelers are priced at 3.55, due in no small part to their being absent the services of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who is our after requiring arthroscopic repair to his knee.
The Patriots are prohibitive favourites to win the AFC and represent the conference in Super Bowl LI. They actually benefited from the four-game suspension served by Tom Brady at the beginning of the season. It is a rested and rejuvenated Brady who has resumed leading the Patriots offense, missing only early season games that have little impact on the post season.
