Total money bet on the Pats was 65% and 35% on the opponents.
Richard Gardner, Bodog Sportsbook Manager: "The lines for the Pats keep getting higher and higher, it's not so much that the bookmakers don't think the Pats can cover lines over 20 as they've proven all season that they can, the bookmakers are trying to set the line so high that it will scare off a lot of bettors. Unfortunately, the bettors keep betting on the Patriots regardless of the line and the Patriots are doing their part as they've covered every spread except the game versus the Colts."
