Return of Brady changes NFL Super Bowl betting landscape
Tom Brady is back and bettors should take note.
Brady has come back to play for one reason - He can count to 15. It’s that easy. He is better than 15 other QBs in the NFC and very happy to play at home during the regular season against the Rams and Packers.
The Rams will not be the same hungry, over paid team they were last year. Green Bay has their 50 million dollar man Aaron Rogers throwing passes and Davante Adams, who currently refuses to play under the franchise tag for $20 million. After watching all the politics in the off season so far, we are sure TB12 has been taking it all in.
This year Green Bay plays Buffalo, Tampa Bay, and the LA Rams on the road and have Dallas, New England, and Tennessee at home. I am sure TB12 has looked at the same schedule over a few times and reached the conclusion that the road to Super Bowl LVII should be going thru Tampa Bay
There are 9 good QBs in the AFC and without Brady, just two in the NFC. In this day and age of passing the ball down the field to fastest man is alive and thriving in the NFL, teams must have a great QB to win. Look at the 8 Divisions in the NFL who won the last three or so years. The divisions are all won by teams with the best QB.
Tom knows he has the team to get him there again. In the last 24 hours the Buccaneers have signed their center and left guard to multi-year contracts. His coordinators are coming back. It’s just a matter of time before Gronk, Leonard Fournette sign on to finish what TB12 has called unfinished business.
Last year TB12 led the league with 5,316 yards and 43 touchdowns. The Odds of Tampa Bay winning the Super Bowl is +1000. This number looks high. They are – 230 to win their division. It is to early to make a wager on the NFL for 2022, however after watching Tom Brady play the last year, and calling this season unfinished business, you certainly can put your hand in your pocket for a play. At +1000 this might be the best line you see all year.
Update: The Buccaneers are now the second favorite to win SBLVII and their odds to win it all have dropped. Super Bowl future betting odds for Tampa Bay are now all over the place, as low as +750 and as high as +900. Even at 7.5-1, TB12 and the Bucs are still a solid wager.
