Bucs' Super Bowl Odds Shift; Brady/Watson MVP

Tom Brady is back. And the Bucs went from a middle-of-the-pack bunch to Super Bowl co-favorites just like that.

Needless to say, Brady's announcement Sunday caused a massive ripple effect in the NFL betting markets.

Last week, we had the Buccaneers listed at +3300 to win Super Bowl LVI. Today, Tampa Bay is a co-favorite with Buffalo with +750 odds.

What a difference TB12 makes.

"We never expected Brady to un-retire so we had to pull all of our futures markets off the board immediately and adjust," Adam Burns, head trader at BetOnline.ag, said. "There are only a handful of guys in the NFL who can make a team go from semi-longshot to Super Bowl favorite, and Tom Brady is obviously one of them. We're already taking a ton of bets on the Bucs for 2022."

The Buccaneers vaulted past a dozen teams on their way to the top of the Super Bowl odds board.

Brady obviously wasn't on the initial offseason MVP list, but now he's second with +900 odds, just behind Josh Allen.

Another fresh name on the list is Deshaun Watson, who comes in tied for the third-best odds.

"Even if he is cleared of all charges, you never know how the league is going to handle a situation like Watson's because he could still be suspended at some level," Burns added. "That being said, Watson is Top 5, franchise quarterback, and we know there are a ton of teams interested in trading for him. Because of that, we have to protect our exposure with lower odds than maybe he really deserves."
