The Patriots have been the goliaths of the NFL during the Bill Belichick era, especially within the betting world. Seemingly posting a positive ATS record year in and year out. one of their most impressive characteristics throughout has been their ability to bounce back after losses.

Well, the Patriots suffered just about as tough of a loss as you could have last week in Miami. Now the Patriots head into the lion's den in Pittsburgh to face off against the Steelers in a game with huge playoff implications. 

Despite the talent of both of these teams, historic numbers suggest that the Patriots are the play here, even on the road, for both ATS and moneyline. 

Those are some winning percentages you simply cannot ignore. If the Patriots are the same Patriots they have been for nearly the last two decades then this seems like a simple call, especially for a game that's almost a pick'em. 

Granted all of those opponents most definitely weren't as tough as the one they face on Sunday,  but with that track record, it's hard to find the logic to doubt them.
