Patriots 2011 Super Bowl Odds

The Patriots 2011 Super Bowl odds were listed at +120 for a payout potential of $120 on every $100 bet or $12 for every $10 bet. The Pats had been listed at 10/1 odds of winning the Super Bowl coming into the regular season. 

New England will face the New York Jets in one of the most anticipated games of the Playoffs later Sunday afternoon. 

In this series, the home team has won all four meetings since Jets head coach Rex Ryan’s tenure.  One of those wins included a 45-3 routing in Foxborough just last month.  Ryan has played the video from that came and forced his team to watch it “every day” this week.

"We have to play fast and physical," Ryan said. "That doesn't mean we're going to dummy it up. If you dummy it up against them, you'll get crushed."

Just how good are the Patriots?

They will enter this game having won 8 consecutive games after an uncharacteristic loss in Cleveland, one of just two this season. The Patriots have forced 24 turnovers during that streak while committing only one themselves.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has won 28 consecutive regular-season home starts since losing to the Jets in 2006.  He was also 8-0 at home during the post season before losing to the Ravens last year.
