It's been a miserable season for the Patriots with just one win in their last eight games. New England takes on the Los Angeles Chargers in NFL Week 13 in desperate need of a win.
Los Angeles has had perhaps an even more disappointing season, with five straight losses and a coach in Brandon Staley that looks well on his way out the door.
Someone has to win this week, though oddsmakers don't expect that team to be the Patriots.
Here's a look at the opening odds for this matchup:
Patriots vs. Chargers Week 13 Opening Odds
The Patriots are huge home underdogs with a spread of +6 and moneyline odds of +215. Oddsmakers set the total at 40.5 to start the week, suggesting New England's offense will continue to struggle.
Given Mac Jones' struggles, the under hit each of the last three weeks for the Patriots. That being said, this could be a good spot to back the Pats.
Los Angeles is 1-2 outright in its last three games as road favorites, though New England is 1-8 against the spread in its last nine as home underdogs.
For Patriots fans, the team is likely best suited losing this contest to bolster draft position. However, the Chargers' constant issues may give Mac Jones the spark he needs.
