Week-1 Straight Up and ATS losers collide when the Pats enter New Orleans to face the Saints as 6.5/7-point favorites. Evidently the markets have not lost faith in New England after getting rolled in the 4th quarter by the Chiefs.

New England Patriots @ New Orleans Saints

'Tom's Revenge' should be the title of this article. This is a line that we'll have to watch ... so far, 99% of the ML money and 93% of the spread money is coming in on the Pats, but the line is holding solid around 6-and-a-half points (just a couple select books at 7) which is strange. This leads me to believe that the line was perhaps shaded from the get. This is one of those games where a feel like a lot of money is going to come in late, so if you like the Pats, get in while you have an edge. Another angle to take is to watch the Patriots defense and look for signs of huffing and puffing in the 3rd. We could see another 4th qtr. collapse, so taking the Saints 4 Qtr spread or ML may turn a profit.
