In tomorrow night’s matchup between his former quarterback and his former team, Julian Edelman is undecided on who to root for. Edelman shared his betting advice for Tom Brady’s homecoming game on Sunday night in a
Instagram video posted on Saturday.
Despite admitting that it was a difficult decision, “like choosing between mom and dad,” the retired wide receiver chose the New England Patriots, with whom he spent his 11-year NFL career.
To justify his selection, Edelman provided a hilarious “fun fact” about his former quarterback: “The Patriots are 187 and 127 against the spread in games where Tom Brady starts,” he wrote. “Fun fact: Tom Brady has never beaten the New England Patriots in his career.” “Patriots +7.”
Of course, Brady has never beaten his former team, as this will be his first game against them since joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers prior to the 2020 season.
Throughout the week leading up to this highly anticipated homecoming game, Brady has downplayed the emotional impact that this game will almost certainly have on him. Brady’s longtime friend and former favorite target, Julian Edelman, believes he understands how important this game is to the all-time great quarterback.
“He definitely wants to go out there and put some points up,” Edelman said on the Ryen Russillo Podcast recently. “That’s the type of person he is..” He’s a fierce competitor, and we’d be lying if we said there wasn’t a little something extra in this game. ”
The game tomorrow night will begin at 8:20 p.m. Edelman and the rest of the football world will be on the edge of their seats in Gillette Stadium at 2:00 p.m. ET. Nokia News
