Proceeds from the event will be donated to charities that are geared towards helping those that have been negatively affected by the spread of COVID-19, according to ESPN.

The Coronavirus shutdown has caused for the stoppage of all major sports, which has also created an obstacle for websites that offer legal online betting. Although Sunday’s The Match is not exactly professional athletics, it has inspired a multitude of betting lines on a variety of in-match occurrences.

Our team of experts is surprised that the following betting line on Tom Brady’s hat of choice does not include odds for whether he will don a “Keep America Great” ballcap. Many may remember when Brady placed a “Make America Great Again” hat in his Patriots locker, aptly displayed so that photographers could easily discover it during interviews.

Speaking of President Donald J. Trump, he is no stranger to golf courses and owns a few himself. The Medalist Golf Club is only a forty-minute drive to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club, and considering his relationship with Brady, there is a possibility that he may attend. The odds suggest that he almost definitely will not make an appearance, but a massive payout can be earned if you bet on him to show up and he does.

Which logo will be on the front of Tom Brady’s hat?

  • TB12 -400
  • Buccaneers +250
