Sportsbook calls for investigation into Bucs bets placed before Tom Brady’s return

Tom Brady’s return to the Buccaneers not only hijacked the end of Selection Sunday, but it drastically altered NFL forecast for the upcoming season. Sports books around the country immediately altered Tampa Bay’s 2023 Super Bowl odds, though now it appears some Bucs bets are under further examination.

Westgate SuperBook vice president Jay Kornegay believes that some sizable bets placed on Tampa Bay to win the Super Bowl before Brady announced he was coming out of retirement were made with inside information, according to Todd Dewey of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Kornegay has reportedly called for an investigation into those wagers.

“There’s not a doubt in my mind that they knew he was coming back when they placed those wagers on Thursday,” Kornegay said. “And these were not casual bettors. They would be categorized as educated bettors. It wasn’t a guy with a Tom Brady jersey at the counter.

Tom Brady has already played catch with the Lombardi Trophy, tossing it underhand to tight end Cameron Brate during the Tampa Bay Buccaneers boat parade following their Super Bowl title. 

But the great ones are always pushing themselves further, and Brady wants to evolve as well. So his New Year’s resolution this year very specifically involves the Lombardi Trophy.

“I do think what I’d like to do is complete an overhand toss with the Lombardi Trophy,” he told Jim Gray on his weekly Let’s Go podcast (h/t Joey Knight of the Tampa Bay Times.) “None of this Patrick Mahomes underhand throw that he always does.
