Las Vegas sportsbooks are getting huge bets on Tom Brady to the Raiders
Updated January 19, 2023
The NFL season isn’t even over yet, with the Divisional Round here, but countless people out there are already looking ahead to the 2023 season. The question everyone has is, where will the GOAT end up playing? Right now, Las Vegas sportsbooks are getting huge bets on Tom Brady to the Raiders. Could Brady leave the Buccaneers to suit up for the AFC West side?
Loads of wagers have Tom Brady playing for Las Vegas next season
Indeed, loads of wagers have Tom Brady playing for Las Vegas next season, as it sure seems like he has played his last game with Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers lost to the Dallas Cowboys in the Wild Card Round, ending their season. Brady can play anywhere he wants next year, but it sure feels like a team like Las Vegas could make a lot of sense for him. After Monday’s loss, Brady sure made it seem like he was ready to play elsewhere.
“I love this organization. It’s a great place to be. Thank you, everybody, for welcoming me and all you regulars,” Brady said after the postseason loss to Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys. “I’m just very grateful for the respect, and I hope I gave the same thing back to you. I appreciate it.”
Per the best-rated sportsbooks, which includes the reliable Bovada review, the Raiders hold the No. 1 NFL betting odds to sign Brady this offseason. Las Vegas holds +250 odds to ink him. Per a report, the sportsbooks across Sin City have also seen many bets on Brady to make his way to Allegiant Stadium to keep his career going on starting next fall.
The Raiders aren’t the only team interested in landing him, though. Per that same report, teams like the 49ers, Patriots, Dolphins, Giants, and Jets also have strong odds of getting him to town. With the Raiders, it makes sense, as the team is looking to trade quarterback Derek Carr in the coming months. If Brady does move to Las Vegas, it’d be huge news for head coach Josh McDaniels and the entire fanbase.
NFL bets are through the roof during the postseason thus far
What makes the Brady wagers news even more exciting right now is that NFL bets are through the roof during the postseason thus far, and things are only going to get even more exciting this upcoming weekend. Last week, major bets were placed on the Wild Card Round, especially for the showdown between the Chargers and Jaguars. LA was up 27-0 at one point, which people couldn’t believe.
Then, the Jaguars ended up posting one of the best comebacks we’ve ever seen, stunning the Chargers late in the action. This led to a lot of betting wins for the Vegas sportsbooks, as so many people placed live bets on LA to secure the win. No one expected the Jaguars to come all the way back to win the matchup, but they did and now they’re going to take on the Chiefs in the next round.
In addition to the LA-Jacksonville matchup, a lot of bets were placed on the Vikings-Giants game. In that NFC Wild Card showdown, the Vikings were favored to win by three points, and a lot of the bets in Las Vegas went on the home-team Minnesota side to record a convincing win. This proved to be another big-time win for the local sportsbooks in Sin City.
In that matchup, Daniel Jones topped 300 passing yards and added 78 more on the ground, plus his two touchdowns, to lead the Giants to a win. Now, the Giants will look to try and take down the Eagles, who have high Super Bowl betting odds right now. Along with the Chiefs, Bills and Bengals, Philly has received a lot of SB wagers as well. People can’t wait to see how the postseason shapes out.
Vegas sportsbooks are seeing a rise in visitors as well
Lastly, don’t forget for a second that Vegas sportsbooks are seeing a rise in visitors as well. This time of the year, plenty of people are making their way to Sin City for the NFL postseason. With all the different sportsbooks across town, people love the fact that they can go to a spot, check out the odds, watch games on the countless big screens in place and then make some bets. It’s what adds to the excitement of traveling to Vegas.
Between the postseason and the Super Bowl, it’s a month-long event and people love the idea of scheduling their vacations to Nevada to take in all of the fun. With all the new attractions being featured in Las Vegas too, it only gives people even more reason to make their way to Vegas for a visit. The NFL bets have been through the roof and they’re not going to slow down until the Super Bowl comes and goes. It’s always like that this time of the season.
