The great Tom Brady, the most important player in New England history, returned to the gridiron in Week 5. In 2 games, he’s torn it up. There’s information below for bookies and pay per head agents on what affect Mr. Brady is likely to have on their bookmaking operations.
New England is One of the Most Bet Upon Teams in the NFL
Year in and year out, the New England Patriots are one of the most bet upon teams in the NFL. Those wagers don’t necessarily go onto the Patriots to cover spreads or win games on the moneyline. Since the Pats are one of the most hated teams in the NFL, a lot of wagers go the other way, on the other teams, in New England Patriot games.
Brady’s return should only boost interest in betting on Patriot games. PPH football betting agents should see an uptick in the action whenever Terrific Tom and New England takes the field. That action could go either for the Patriots or against the Patriots.
What Should Online Bookies Do About Brady’s Return?
In most cases, online bookies shouldn’t do too much. The Pats are already at 5/2 to win the Super Bowl. Perhaps, setting a max betting limit one can wager on the New England Patriots to win the Super Bowl might be something to do.
When it comes to regular season Patriot games, history has shown that the public often way over bets the Patriots before pro bettors get in on the action. What this means is that those playing against the Patriots can do very well in spots. The Patriots went 8-8-2 against the spread last season with 8 wins, 8 losses, and 2 pushes.
Vegas odds makers are experts at setting New England Patriot lines. Per head agents should pay attention to how the Patriots do now that Tom Brady is back. By setting max betting limits for specific players on Pat lines, agents and online bookies can make sure that their bettors don’t load up on a single New England Patriot regular season game.
