Pats Odds Swing On Suspension News

The betting pendulum swung quickly at the sportsbooks on Thursday morning with news that Tom Brady’s Deflategate suspension had been overturned

While the Week 1 line of the New England Patriots game vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers remained off the board in the immediate aftermath, there was speculation the spread would swing from -2.5 to -7. The line opened in the summer at -6.5 before the Brady suspension was announced and it looks like the line is headed back to a touchdown.

The news didn’t have a huge impact on Super Bowl 50 betting at Bodog as oddsmakers had already factored in the risk of the suspension being overturned and the fact that Brady would still have 12 weeks to ramp up before the playoffs.

The Pats were 10/1 on the odds to win the Super Bowl yesterday, and are at 9/1 today. New England had remained favorites to win the AFC East at 2/3, and the line lowered to 1/2. In AFC betting, they had been 4/1 and that line inched slightly lower at 15/4.

The regular season win total betting line also swung to favor the OVER 10.5 games. As well, a handful of Brady prop odds were also slashed, including NFL MVP betting (20/1 to 10/1) and others. See the latest lines just posted at Bodog.
