Deflategate Super Bowl 51 Prop Odds

Super Bowl 51 Prop Odds: How many times will "deflategate" be mentioned?

The Super Bowl 51 prop odds are out and one thing that bettors can wager on is how many times "deflategate" will be brought up in the broadcast.

Tom Brady was suspended for the first four games this season for his alleged role in the "Deflategate" saga that impacting the Patriots two seasons ago. The Patriots still went 3-1 in Brady's absence and one of the bigger storylines to emerge during Super Bowl week is whether or not NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will have to hand the Lombardi Trophy to Brady after suspending him to start the season. Fun stuff.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the over/under has been set at 1.5 for the number of times that the FOX broadcast crew of Joe Buck and Troy Aikman will mention the words "deflate" or "deflategate" on live TV. The prop wager consists of from kickoff to the final whistle and the words have to be mentioned live during the broadcast only. Half time and commercials do not apply.

Bovada.lv also lists a few other prop odds related to the "Deflategate" scandal, including whether or not Brady, Bill Belichick or owner Robert Kraft will be seen shaking Goodell's hand on TV. The prop odd is predicated on the Patriots winning, however, so if the Falcons lose then the wager is null and void. The handshake must be clearly shown after the final whistle and on live broadcast.
