You probably know that the AFC East is Tom Brady’s house, for all intensive purposes. His New England Patriots have won 18 division titles. Since 2001, when Tom Brady was paired with Bill Belichick, the Patriots have won twelve AFC East titles in 14 seasons. Of course, the AFC East is also home to the Buffalo Bills, the Miami Dolphins, and the New York Jets. Overall, the conference has been home to eighteen Super Bowl teams and seven Super Bowl winners. The Bills are decent and the jets are better.
But the smart money has been on the Pats for as long as we can remember, in football years. There are no signs of that changing. No matter how badly their haters would love them to just go away and be bad for a few years.

How To Bet On American Football Conference East
The Patriots ARE the New England Patriots, and they are the favorites for a reason. Each year, they bring in top tier talent and light up the scoreboard, week after week. So only bet against them when you have a solid strategy in place.
A massive year from Ryan Fitzpatrick could mean the Jets slip into a playoff spot. They are going to have to prove they can beat quality teams, but they could just be the sleeper team that everyone wishes they put money on at the start of the season.
The Dolphins were awful, but still managed to win 3 games at home. They also won 3 road games, which means on 3 occasions, they walked onto someone else’s field and walked away with a victory. And bettors probably lost a lot of money on these days.
There is simply no such thing as a lock, or a 100% safe bet. Spreads are made to be beaten and lines don’t always tell you the whole story. The odds are also heavily based on what everyone is betting on. When everyone else is wrong and you’re right, it leads to a very, very good Sunday.
