I'm sure people are tired of hearing it but there's a reason its being said. Brady and Belichick at home in the playoffs. A lot of people are using the angle that because of the way the Colts came back last week, they are playing with "house money" and will be more relaxed. I think this will hurt rather than help them. So "all the pressure" is on Brady and Belichick? Since when has that been a problem? Also, since 2000, teams in the playoffs coming off a 40+ performance are just 2-14-1 ATS the following week. Not only did the Colts score 45, but they did it in stellar comeback fashion. I don't think that carry's over. Remember, its important not to overreact and bet based on week to week performances. I'll swallow the points with Patriots.
