Brady’s Odds Suggest He Can Challenge his Own Rushing TD Mark

With the NFL only a little over two months away from its 2022 opening weekend, the status of the numbers that Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady is bourgeoning on some draft boards.

Brady’s most frisky line is (+105) on scoring three or more touchdowns as a rusher this season. The last time he ran for three touchdowns was as a member of the New England Patriots in 2011. He also posted three in three other seasons as his high was four rushing touchdowns in 2012.

Last season, he held (+450) early as the odds to score a touchdown via the run or via the reception. The 23-year veteran is sitting at (+900) to win the MVP as the Buccaneers’ sport (+700) as the favorite to represent the NFC once again in the Super Bowl.

Those odds are only behind the favorite Buffalo Bills who are the Super Bowl favorite (+650).

Brady’s MVP ledger is still relentless on the odds market as he is on top of the (+1200) odds that are listed for new Broncos quarterback and former Seahawk Russell Wilson, the Bengals’ Joe Burrow, the Chargers’ Justin Herbert and He is still on top of Rams quarterback Matt Stafford (+1500).

Upon his news:
He has started to matriculate toward that (+700) mark of right now. Sportsbooks have recognized the impact Brady has had with the Buccaneers since he came to Tampa four seasons ago. Even after Tampa Bay won the Super Bowl in February of 2021, the Bucs’ odds were at (+6600) in the winter of 2020 which had tied them with the lowly New York Jets with that (+6600) push!

Jacksonville even finished at 1-15 that season and at the time before Brady had been billed as once again the Bucs’ QB, the Jaguars had better Super Bowl odds as they sat at (+5000).

Then, when reminiscing about the rise of Tampa Bay, Brady dropped Bucs odds to win Super Bowl LV from (+5500) to (+1600). Then after adding Rob Gronkowski at tight end, the Buccaneers’ odds fell to (+900).

Those odds before the addition of Brady and Gronkowski were the 23rd best in the NFL. Those are not a startling post, but the impact, even in the odds market was exasperating when adding the two players.
