First the rumor, then the visit, then news that he signed, then the pretzel.
Now Las Vegas has weighed in on the Tim Tebow deal with the Eagles.
Will Tebow make the Eagles’ Week One roster?
There are many opinions on the topic, and there is no lack of interest in Tebow. Such are the elements that lead people to say, “Wanna bet?”
And indeed, online sports book Bovada.lv has set odds on whether Tebow will be a part of the Eagles’ opening-week squad.
Those who believe Tebow will make the Eagles are getting 5-to-2 odds (+250). For every $1 risked, $2.50 would be won on a successful wager.
Those taking a more pessimistic view on whether Tebow will make the club can get their money down, too. Tebow is a 1-to-4 favorite to not be on the Eagles’ 53-player roster in Week One (-400). This means bettors will have to risk $4 to take home $1 on a winning wager.
In short, the odds imply Tebow has an 80 percent chance to be cut.
So let’s put this to a vote: Will Tim Tebow be on the Eagles’ Week One roster? Let us know via the poll and in the comments. We’re quite interested to see how the voting matches up with the odds posted by the sports book.
