Will The Patriots FINALLY Go Undefeated This Season?

Believe it or not, the 2008 NFL season begins in just a little more than nine weeks, so it's probably time to ask the question - can the Patriots go undefeated? The odds are surprisingly not terrible:


If you believe the over/unders--and it would be silly not to--then the Patriots are by far the best bet of the 30 teams. That's not to say they're a good bet; not even close. As you can see above, they're expected to go undefeated about 1.3% of the time, while it needs to happen at least 6.3% of the time for it to be a good bet. But compared to the rest of these, it's a bargain.

Is it too late to get those 19-0 shirts back from Nicaragua?
