    DEFLATE-GATE Props (01/21/15)

    By John Ewing Director of Research and Analytics @johnewing
    DEFLATE-GATE: prop bets for the punishment of the New England Patriots and Bill Belichick. Odds courtesy of Bovada.lv.



    The New England Patriots defeated the Indianapolis Colts 45-7 in the AFC Championship game. Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are heading back to the Super Bowl but did the Patriots cheat?

    The NFL has found that 11 of New England's 12 game balls were under-inflated. Under league rules, no alteration of the footballs is allowed once officials approve the balls.



    Doctoring footballs could provide a competitive advantage. Under-inflated balls could allow players to grip the ball better or alter the manner in which the ball travels through the air.

    What penalties, if any, will be imposed on the Patriots?

    This is not the first time that New England and Bill Belichick has been accused of cheating. The NFL fined Belichick $500,000, the New England Patriots $250,000 and docked the Pats a first-round draft pick for having an assistant spy on the New York Jets.

    Bovada.lv is offering two prop bets regarding possible penalties.

    Will Bill Belichick be suspended for at least 1 game for the Deflated Ball scandal?
    • Yes: +150
    • No: -200

    Will Bill Belichick be suspended for the Super Bowl for the Deflated Ball scandal?
    • Yes: +750
    • No: -1500

    The odds are long that Belichick misses the Super Bowl and it is doubtful that the Patriots head coach is suspended at all. Of course that won't stop people from wagering on the most recent NFL scandal.
