As such, the betting markets have been adjusted.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Super Bowl Odds

Prior to the Gronk trade, the Buccaneers were +1600 ($100 bet would net $1,600) to win the Super Bowl. Now that they’ve acquired Gronkowski, they’re down to +1200 at DraftKings. The Bucs are as short as 9-1 at BetMGM; they began the day at 16-1 there.

PointsBet, which operates in New Jersey and Indiana, has one-upped them all, boosting the Bucs’ Super Bowl price up to 20-1. This is a limited-time offer that’s available to both new and existing customers.

Here’s how Tampa’s other futures changed at DraftKings:

  • NFC Championship: +750 to +700
  • NFC South: +145 to +130
  • Win total: 9.5 (juice on Over moved from -110 to -125)
  • To make playoffs: -160 to -225

It’s not just team futures that have changed following the Gronk news. DraftKings made Gronkowski the favorite to be the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year at +200 odds, followed by Ben Roethlisbergr and J.J. Watt at +500. DK also posted Gronk’s over/under for receiving touchdowns at 5.

PointsBet, meanwhile, took the first crack at posting a receiving yards over/under for Gronk: 750.5.

As for Brady himself, his +2000 odds to win the regular season MVP have been boosted to +1400.

Odds explanation: +1400 means a $100 bet would profit $1,400, while -225 means a $225 bet would profit $100.
