No Brady? No problem … because the New England Patriots are still FAVORED to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1 … according to multiple major Vegas sports books.
TMZ Sports spoke with honchos at multiple major sports books in Vegas who all told us the same thing — the Pats were favored by 6.5 before the suspension … and will be favored by 2-3 points now.
Tony Miller, the director of the race and sports book at the Golden Nugget, says … “They’re still the Patriots … and they have a couple of months to get Jimmy Garoppolo ready.”
Get this … we’re told most sports books took down the game after the Wells Report — refusing to take bets because of the possibility of a suspension … which could impact the line.
But now, we’re told most, if not all, books will start taking action again as soon as today … with the new odds.
