Patriots Super Bowl Odds Continue To Improve Despite Cutting Antonio Brown

Say it ain’t so, Antonio!

It is so, and you know what else is so? Coach Bill Belichick, quarterback Tom Brady, and the entire New England Patriots franchise being really good at playing football regardless of whatever is thrown their way.

The Patriots are still the Super Bowl LIV favorites following the release of Pro Bowl wide receiver Antonio Brown last week.

In fact, the Patriots odds to win a seventh Lombardi Trophy have actually risen even higher after cutting ties with AB, who suited up for only a single game and was on the roster for a total of 11 days. 

The Bovada oddsmakers currently list Belichick and Brady’s bunch at +325 odds, giving the defending Super Bowl champions a 23.53% chance to repeat in February next year.

This comes after the Patriots odds to win skyrocketed following the news that they’d be signing Brown to a one-year deal following his release by Jon Gruden and the Oakland Raiders organization.

After a 33-3 throttling of the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1 of the NFL, and adding a Pro Bowl weapon for Brady, the sportsbook increased the already favored Patriots’ +650 odds, 13.33% chance, to +375 odds, 21.05% chance, after the addition of Brown was officially announced.

After leaving the Pittsburgh Steelers to sign with the Raiders in the offseason, AB never suited up for a regular-season game in the silver and black.

Brown’s timeline is filled to the brim with antics and controversies, which the Pats appeared to take on provided he knock it off with the seemingly daily shenanigans.

However, shortly after the team signed Brown, news broke of civil lawsuits allegations of sexual assault brought forth by Britney Taylor, his former personal trainer.

The final straw—in a bale full of problematic straws—was when Sports Illustrated reported on photos taken of intimidating texts that Brown had sent to the woman, which appeared to threaten both her and her children.

Adding insult to injury: The texts were made after he signed with the Patriots. The Pats immediately cut Brown from the roster and refuse to pay him for anything other than his four reception, 56-yard and one-touchdown performance in a 43-0 victory over the Miami Dolphins in Week 2.

The NFL is investigating Brown, who’s currently a free agent and will likely remain teamless at least for 2019.

The Patriots, on the other hand, appear to be doing just fine without the troubled Brown and easily handled the New York Jets, winning 30-14 in their Week 3 matchup last Sunday.
