The New England Patriots have won 12 or more games in eight consecutive regular seasons. Las Vegas oddsmakers aren't sure they'll reach that point again this year.
The Patriots' season win total opened at 11 on Sunday at the Westgate SuperBook, the highest in the league, but down more than a win from last season's number.
Last spring, New England was coming off a Super Bowl title and opened with the highest win total (12.5) since at least the 2001 season, according to odds archive Sportsoddshistory.com. No other team was set higher than 10.5.
