Las Vegas installed the Patriots as home underdogs for the first time since 2005 when the spread for Patriots-Broncos was released and the Broncos have mostly remained as 2.5-point favorites all week. The total for the game is at 54.
 
As for recent trends?
 
The Patriots are 4-1 against the spread at home this season and have covered four in a row. Their record straight-up after a loss over the last six-plus seasons is 23-3. They are 30-12-1 against the spread after a loss. The Broncos are 8-18 against the spread in their last 26 games against teams with winning records. The Broncos are 1-4 against the spread in their last four meetings with the Patriots.
 
As for side action, there’s plenty of Brady-Manning on the board.
 
On Bovada.com, Manning is -1 to throw more touchdown passes, who will throw more interceptions is a pick ‘em and Manning is favored to throw for more yards (-30 yards is the spread. Meanwhile, Wes Welker is favored to have more receptions and receiving yards than Danny Amendola.
