The New England Patriots enter the 2017 NFL season as the prohibitive favorites to (again) conquer the AFC en route to (another) Super Bowl title. Can anyone stop them?
The over/under for New England’s regular-season win total has been set at 12 1/2, which speaks to how high expectations are for the defending Super Bowl champions. Other over/under marks across the AFC aren’t quite as high, but some teams inevitably will blow past their projected win totals, just as certain clubs undoubtedly will crash and burn despite having lofty aspirations.
In the season premiere of “The Hurry-Up,” presented by MyBookie.AG, NESN.com’s Ricky Doyle picked two teams he believes will surpass the over/under win totals set for them this season. Then, he broke down two teams he sees falling short of their over/under mark.
So, who does Doyle love and who does he hate? Find out in the video above.
