Odds suggest Brady will be suspended
FOXBORO, MA (The Spread) – The odds suggest that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will be suspended at least one game for his role in “Deflategate.”
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the odds that Brady will be suspended for at least one game in the 2015 NFL regular season as a result of “Deflategate” are 1/5. The odds that he won’t be suspended, meanwhile, are 3/1.
Will Brady be suspended for the entire 2015 NFL regular season as a result of “Deflategate?” The odds are against it at 1/2000 (meaning you would have to wager $2,000 just to win $100.00), while the odds he will be suspended the entire season are 1000/1 (meaning you would win $1,000 for every $100.00 you wager, so oddsmakers feel good that he won’t be suspended the entire year).
Finally, the over/under for number of total games that Brady will be suspended for “Deflategate” has been set at 3, with the over carrying odds of +150 and the under carrying odds of -200. That means if you bet that he’ll be suspended over 3 games, you’ll win $150 on a $100 wager, and if you bet under 3 games you’ll win $100.00 for every $200.00 wagered.
According to the New York Daily News while citing “several key sources,” Roger Goodell is expected to announce Brady’s suspension next week. As Gary Myers writes, “it is no longer a matter of if the NFL commissioner will suspend Brady, but for how long he will suspend him.”
