We have a Super Bowl rematch here! Well, we’re five years removed from these two teams meeting up so it’s not exactly the same as the Super Bowl LI matchup. Now, the Patriots are led by rookie Mac Jones who has been playing his way into the rookie of the year conversation.

As for Atlanta, well they are sitting at 4-5 and have had an up and down season with Matt Ryan at the helm with first-year Head Coach, Arthur Smith. On paper, this looks like one New England should win but will they be able to cover the spread?

Here are the five most popular plays from the public for Week 11’s Thursday Night Football matchup.

Patriots -6.5

The Patriots are nearly touchdown favorites on the road against Atlanta and it makes sense. The Pats have won four games in a row and are coming off a 45-7 dominant win over the Cleveland Browns. The Pats are 6-4 on the season against the spread with a 2-1 record as an away underdog. As for the Falcons, they haven’t had as much luck. They are 0-2 as a home favorite and have a -19 ATS +/- in those games.

Patriots -6.583%85%

Over 47

Combined, these two teams are 10-9 to the over. At just 47 points, it sounds like a touch too low which is why the public is likely backing it. In four of the past five Patriots games they’’ve gone over this total. Atlanta has played more low-scoring games recently but they’ve still allowed the second-most points in the NFL on the season.

Damien Harris to score first touchdown in game (+650)

The Atlanta Falcons have allowed 10 rushing touchdowns in nine games. More often than not they’ve allowed backs to get into the endzone which is what we’re seeing with this bet. Damien Harris has seven touchdowns in nine games this year and is averaging 4.1 yards per carry. He should be effective tonight against this Falcons defense.

Rhamondre Stevenson to score an anytime touchdown (+100)

Rhamondre Stevenson was Bill Belichick’s new flavor of the week at the running back position. Last week he ran for 100 yards and two scores. A majority of his production came in last week’s game and as we know, the Patriots love to change it up with their running backs. He likely won’t see as many reps as he did last week but against this defense, I get the thought process behind this one.

Hunter Henry to score and Patriots to win (+145)

To close out we have a nice little parlay here. All the Patriots have to do is win, not cover any number, and Hunter Henry has to find the endzone. Henry has seven touchdowns in the last seven games and is easily one of Mac Jones’ favorite redzone targets. He won’t put up a ton of yardage in the passing game but if New England gets towards the endzone, lookout for Henry.
