Commanders at Patriots odds for Week 9

Things are not looking too promising for the Washington Commanders after five defeats in their last six games. This has sapped any momentum generated during the summer after Josh Harris' ownership group came into the fold, so it doesn't take a genius to figure out what comes next if Ron Rivera cannot turn things around.

Next up for the Commanders is a tricky-looking trip to the New England Patriots. This is a far cry from the dynasty built by Bill Belichick and Tom Brady spanning almost two decades, but their defense can cause significant issues and the experienced coach always knows how to nullify the opposition's biggest threat.

According to the latest odds from FanDuel Sportsbook, the Commanders are 3.0-point underdogs at the Patriots in Week 9.

  • Washington +3.0 points: -105 (bet $105 to win $100)
  • New England -3.0 points: -115 (bet $115 to win $100)

Anyone who wishes to wager the Commanders on the money line can get Rivera's men at +134 (bet $100 to win $134). The Patriots are favored to bounce back after a heavy loss to the Miami Dolphins last time out with odds of -164 (bet $164 to win $100).

FanDuel Sportsbook has set the over/under for the clash at 39.5 points, which indicates they aren't expecting a high-scoring affair at Gillette Stadium.

  • Over 39.5 points: -115 (bet $115 to win $100)
  • Under 39.5 points: -105 (bet $105 to win $100)
