Tom Brady’s injury causes Las Vegas to suspend championship odds


The news from the New England Patriots joint practice with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers caused instant concern throughout the organization and fan base when it was learned that quarterback Tom Brady went down with what looked like a knee injury after being rolled up on by offensive tackle Nate Solder, who was dominated by Buccaneers defensive end Adrian Clayborn.

Not only did the Brady news cause some panic among the fan base, but it forced Las Vegas to temporarily suspend odds for the Super Bowl, AFC, and AFC East odds and anything else Patriots’ related.

From Bovada.lv Sportsbook Manager Kevin Bradley:

“With the news floating around that Tom Brady has left practice with a knee injury, we have immediately suspended Super Bowl, AFC, AFC East odds and any props regarding the Patriots and Brady. Regardless of the seriousness of the injury, we cannot take any chances until we know more. Between Manziel’s investigation causing us to close all Texas A&M odds and now Brady, it has been an interesting but busy last couple weeks.”

Brady’s injury is not believed to be serious, so it should not cause any drastic changes among the betting lines.

However, the betting will not be continued until there is an official injury update from the organization.
