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.

Oladipo, after undergoing surgery on his right quadriceps in May, has not played in a single game thus far this season and Morris has been out since taking a blindside hit from Denver Nuggets’ Nikola Jokic on November 8.

With the return of both Oladipo, 29, and Morris, 32, just around the corner, there’s a concern about how exactly they will fit back into the lineup. The Heat are on a hot streak, having won back-to-back

Miami Heat guard Victor Oladipo, who has been out since April 8, 2021, after having surgery on his right quadriceps tendon, could return to the lineup in March.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski provided the report on SportsCenter.

“Victor Oladipo is on this road trip. He’s had two really significant quad tendon surgeries. He’s recovered from the second one now. I’m told that there’s optimism Oladipo could be back within two weeks. Perhaps the second week of March.”

Oladipo, a former Indiana star, has been in the NBA since 2013. The two-time All-Star has averaged 17.5 points, 4.6 rebounds and 4.0 assists for his career.
