On Feb. 12, one day before Super Bowl LVI, a Super Bowl in which Tom Brady would not be playing in, a bettor walked up to the window at Caesars in Atlantic City and placed a bet for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to win the Super Bowl in 2023 at 29/1.
The $10,000 bet would pay $290,000.
It was a bet that Tom Brady, amidst so much speculation, would not retire.
Well, on February 1st he did, thus killing the bet.
On March 13, just 39 days later, Brady unretired, and the bet, all-of-a-sudden, became an ingenious one.
The bettor currently had the bet available to buy for $32,000.
The bet was certainly a real bettor’s type bet, and it doesn’t appear like many people had much faith.
Before Sunday’s news of Brady returning, only one percent of Super Bowl tickets were on the Bucs at 25/1 at BetMGM. The sportsbook also had only one percent of all MVP tickets on Brady.
In the last hour Tom Brady has received 64% of the MVP bets placed on FanDuel. Russell Wilson, Joe Burrow and Josh Allen are still the most bet on.
