Tom Brady out for the season, Patriots odds down the drain

Tom Brady out for the season, Patriots odds down the drain New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will miss the rest of the season, after the knee injury sustained in the opener against the Chiefs, it was reported on Monday. Brady was hit by Kansas City safety Bernard Pollard in the first quarter of a 17-10 victory over the Chiefs in the Patriots opening game and New England confirmed Monday that the quarterback and 2007 MVP is out for the season and in need of a surgery. "As a team we all just have to do our jobs. That really doesn't change. He played one position, he played it very well. We have somebody else playing that position now," New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick was quoted. Matt Cassel will replace Tom Brady at the QB position.

 The news of the season ending injury of Tom Brady sent the bookmakers in a limbo as they scrambled last night to pull out and adjust NFL betting odds. Even this morning we were not able to find an online sportsbook offering future odds on the Patriots, but the big story in the betting circles is the NFL Week 2 game Patriots @ Jets. At the online bookmaker BodogLife the New England Patriots, 16-0 last regular season, are now listed underdog against the New York Jets, who are building up steam thanks to Brett Favre. In a move considered impossible before the NFL season start, the sportsbook has made the Jets favorite -2.5 points against the spread in the upcoming Sunday football game. Money lines are not available at this time, but Patriots underdog odds to win are guaranteed, judging from the spread.
