Bill Bellichick Odds to Coach 2018 Regular Season Game 1 for Pats Good Despite Bombshell Report

Oddsmakers at BetOnline believe New England Patriots head coach Bill Bellichick will be coaching Game 1 of the 2018 NFL regular season following reports Friday of serious friction between him and starting quarterback Tom Brady. 

ESPN’s story suggests there is a growing division among Belichick, Brady, and owner Robert Kraft — and much of it stems from Alex Guerrero, Brady's trainer and business partner.

Initially Guerrero was provided with access to the team and facilities but earlier this season Belichick revoked that access.  
The report goes on to state that Guerrero and Brady's work together created confusion on the team with many players left wondering whether they should work with Brady and Guerrero or the team's medical staff.

From ESPN:

New players felt the surest way to earn Brady's trust was to join Rob Gronkowski, Danny Amendola and others by seeking advice from Guerrero at his TB12 clinic — and not team doctors, which Belichick preferred ... But according to multiple sources, players openly discussed with Patriots coaches, staff and trusted advisers whether to follow Brady or the team, leaving them trapped: Do we risk alienating the NFL's most powerful coach or risk alienating the NFL's most powerful quarterback?

Dave Mason of BetOnline tells Friday morning there is already interest in the prop bet that would pay out $200 for every $100 bet should Bellichick not be the head coach for Game 1 of the 2018 regular season.
