The New England Patriots have now clinched the AFC title and will be making a record-breaking ninth Super Bowl appearance on February 5th, 2017. Following the 36-17 defeat of the Steelers, potential MVP Tom Brady will be looking to become the first QB in NFL history to win five Super Bowls. Based on the New England Patriots Super Bowl 51 betting odds and an overall phenomenal season, the Patriots are highly favored to make this happen. The team went 14-2 with a number of players setting NFL and career highs. Most obviously, Tom Brady missed four games and was still able to set the record for best touchdown to interception ratio in a season. After a 1-yard rush against the Broncos, RB LeGarrette Blount broke the NFL’s single-season rushing touchdown record. Belichick also won his 200th regular-season game with the Patriots, joining the ranks of only four other head coaches to do so with a single franchise.
