    Deflategate Line Movement (05/12/15)

    NFL has suspended Tom Brady for four games for his alleged role in Deflategate. Now that the punishment has come down, sports books have reopened betting on the New England Patriots.

    Oddsmakers had taken all Patriots bets including Super Bowl, conference and divisional odds off the board when the Wells report was released.

    How has the Deflategate punishment moved the lines in Sin City?

    Before Brady's suspension, New England was +750 to win the Super Bowl. The Patriots had the third best odds trailing only Seattle and Green Bay. The defending champions were +350 to win the AFC Conference and -200 to win their division.

    The four game suspension has moved the lines but not dramatically. New England is +1000 repeat as Super Bowl Champion (4th best odds), +450 to win the AFC Conference and -150 to win the AFC East.

    It may come as a surprise that New England is still the favorite to win the division but it shouldn't. Our analysis of Brady's suspension indicates that the Patriots stay on top of the AFC East even if their starting quarterback misses the first four games of the season.

    Of course the suspension isn't guaranteed. Brady's agent has said that the quarterback will appeal his punishment. Think the NFL will waffle on its sentence?

    If Tom Brady appeals his Suspension what will the initial results of the appeal be?
    • Remains a 4 game Suspension 11/10
    • 3 game suspension 4/1
    • 2 game suspension 7/5
    • 1 game suspension 7/1
    • No game suspension 10/1

    The oddsmakers think the suspension will be upheld and that it is unlikely Brady gets off scot-free.

    Change in the New England Patriots Odds

    Odds to Win Before Suspension After Suspension
    Super Bowl +750 +1000
    AFC Conference +350 +450
    AFC East -200 -150

    The Predictalator is the most advanced sports forecasting software available today because it has the ability to account for all of the relevant statistical interactions of the players, coaches, officials, home field advantage and weather in each game.

    05/10/2017 Highlight: With baseball season now into its second month, we can leverage our ResultsFinder tool to profile our season-to-date numbers. MLB sides and totals continue to remain extremely profitable despite a recent run of bad variance to start May. The Predictalator's record of 272-250 on sides and totals this season doesn't look all that impressive, but that's because the simulations have sided with underdogs more often than favorites. Through May 9, the Predictalator has generated $547 for an average $50 bettor. "Normal" or better sides, totals, and run lines (our strongest edges) are 14-10 (+$118) season-to-date.

    The NBA Playoffs continue on in the Second Round and the Predictalator has been profitable on both sides and totals in this year's postseason. Despite being just 16-19 (45.7%) ATS in the NBA Postseason, the Predictalator has generated $46 of total profit, which is a testament to our play value recommendations. Totals have been the real moneymaker in this postseason though, as all playabale totals are 19-15 (55.9%) for a solid profit of $168.

    The NHL Playoffs have featured some very tight lines posted by oddsmakers, which has led to lower volume for the Predictalator. That hasn't let to less profits though. The Predictalator has posted 10 NHL positions (ML, O/U, or PL) in May, going 8-2 (80%) on those positions for a profit of $87. It is rare to find a big edge in the NHL this late in the year, but the Predictalator continues to chip away on small edges to provide solid returns.
