The New England Patriots have been at the top of the NFL for almost the whole of the decade so far and, having undisputedly been the most successful team in the NFL over the past ten years, they are now hoping to start 2011 in fine style by winning the Super Bowl once again.
With veteran quarterback Tom Brady well and truly back to his best, and Bill Belichick full of a hunger and desire to reach the Super Bowl for the first time in three years, no side looks capable of stopping the Patriots ending the season as huge favourites to pick up the famous trophy.
The super bowl betting tips state how The Patriots have won their previous two games by a combined score of 81-10 (including a thumping victory over the New York Jets) and, with their season currently sitting pretty at 11-2, few pundits would bet against the Patriots ending the year as worthy champions.
However, with the Patriots more aware than most that it is the play-offs that determine the eventual champions (having gone unbeaten for an entire season only to see their season end in ultimate defeat at the Super Bowl stage against the New York Giants), rather than regular season results or form, they will be starting to look towards how they can secure home field advantage to help them ensure that they can reap the benefits of every advantage possible in the play-offs. With the Patriots next up against the Green Bay Packers, they know that a victory will put them within touching distance of securing this goal.
Despite this, some of those looking to bet on super bowl believe that the Patriots may now just want to sit back and rest their stars as they try to enjoy the fact that they are clearly the in-form team in the NFL and will certainly feel confident of winning against whatever team they play at whatever location they play.
