Westgate SuperBook Calls For NFL To Investigate

Some big bets on the Bucs came shortly before Tom Brady announced his unretirement. On Sunday evening, Tom Brady announced his "unretirement" from the NFL.

By announcing that he was staying with the team, Brady started a chain reaction of moves that assures that the Buccaneers will be one of the favourites to win the Super Bowl this year.


Late last week, multiple sportsbooks in Las Vegas, including the Westgate SuperBook, took some large bets on the Tampa Bay Bucs to win the Super Bowl and the NFC.

These "sharp" bettors managed to get the Bucs to win the Super Bowl at odds as good as 60-1, and the Bucs to win the NFC at 30-1.

These were significant bets by professional gamblers, and not simply Buccaneers fans making a hail mary bet while in Vegas for the weekend.

These sportsbooks are now on the hook for potentially large losses, and they are wondering if somebody profited off of "insider information" re: Tom Brady's announcement.

These books want the NFL to look into the matter and conduct an investigation.


If Tom Brady didn't return to the Buccaneers, there is virtually no chance that the team would have won the Super Bowl, as many of their high profile free agents likely would have left the team.

Did somebody hear something? Did Tom Brady tell one of his friends of his impending "unretirement", and that friend told somebody else, who bet on the Buccaneers to win the Super Bowl and the NFC?


The NFL issued a "no comment" regarding the matter, and it's unknown if they are going to investigate the situation.

As legal sports betting continues to proliferate in the United States, there are going to be more and more of these types of situations, where somebody may have potentially benefited from "insider knowledge".
