Scarlet Pearl Sportsbook preparing for the return of the NFL
As the NFL season kicks off tonight, you can expect sportsbooks to be crowded with football fans ready to place their bets.
People were stopping by the Scarlet Pearl Sportsbook in D’Iberville to get their parlays in as well as other bets for the season.
As it stands right now, the defending Super Bowl champs are the favorites to win it all this year. The Kansas City Chiefs are six to one odds to go back to back followed by the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers.
Sportsbook Manager Brad Carpenter tells News 25 he expects things to be really busy to kick off the season as there’s plenty of wagers that are worthwhile. “Right now, you can bet over under how many wins a team is going to have. You can bet will they make the playoffs, obviously if they win the Super Bowl, or their conference or even their division. So, there’s a lot of different opportunities. Then on the prime time games, we’ll have some player props and usually on the Saints games as well. So, individual players and rushing yards and passing yards, bets like that.”
You can watch the Kansas City Chiefs take on the Houston Texans tonight on WXXV NBC at 7 p.m.
