Brady Suspension Props & Pats Odds

Tom Brady was handed a four-game suspension by the NFL for his role in last year's Deflategate scandal, and the online sportsbooks have now posted betting props for the quarterback and updated their New England Patriots betting odds for the season ahead.

At Bovada a betting prop released on Tuesday asks what the initial result of any Brady appeal of the suspension will be - with 'remaining a four-game suspension' the favorite at +110 odds. Having the suspension cut down to two games is then at +140 at Bovada, with three games at +400, one game at +700, and no games the longshot at +1000.

And the sportsbooks had to adjust their 2015 New England Patriots betting odds as a result of the Deflategate suspension, but there wasn't a massive movement on that front.

"Until we know if Tom Brady appeals his suspension, which is likely, and then the result of the appeal we are not over-adjusting too much on the Patriots odds," said Kevin Bradley, the Sports Book Manager at Bovada.lv.

"Their win total, that I would have opened at 10.5, is only down half a win to 10. So despite all the hype, it did not affect our odds as much as one would have expected."

A week ago the Patriots were sitting as the -200 favorites on the odds to win the AFC East division title yet again in the upcoming season, and with the team having to replace Brady for up to four games those odds at Bovada moved to -150. The Bills and Dolphins went from +500 to +425 on those futures, with the Jets shifting from +900 to +700.

The Patriots also slipped behind Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts to second at 9/2 on the odds to win the 2016 AFC Championship Game, and they're now tied for fourth at 10/1 on the odds to win Super Bowl 50 at the sportsbook. The Seahawks are the favorites.

New England's first four games of the season are against the Steelers (Week 1), Bills (Week 2), Jaguars (Week 3), and Cowboys (Week 5); the team has a bye in Week 4. Jimmy Garoppolo is expected to start at quarterback for the Patriots while Brady is suspended.
