Sharp Sportsbook Re-Opens AFC Title Game Spread

As news became public regarding Tom Brady’s apparent hand injury, the line for Sunday’s Jaguars-Patriots AFC Championship game dropped from New England -9 to the key number of -7 late Thursday afternoon.

On Friday morning, oddsmakers at market-setting sportsbook Bookmaker.eu became concerned enough to take the game off the board entirely, meaning they weren’t accepting wagers on this matchup until receiving more clarity regarding the severity of Brady’s injury.

According to Scott Cooley, an odds consultant for Bookmaker.eu, “We took it off periodically throughout the day yesterday, including last night, as news and source information came in.”

Bookmaker re-opened the Patriots at -7 with an over/under of 46, which has since dropped to 44.5 as bettors have flocked towards the ‘under’.

At the time of publication, 62% of spread tickets have taken New England.
