Julian Edelman has a lot of faith in his former teammates and former team. That was the message he was sending when he posted a picture to Twitter that shows a pair of large futures bets.
Those bets were on the two teams Edelman thinks will appear in this year’s Super Bowl. It would appear he believes the NFC will be represented by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the AFC will be represented by the New England Patriots.

The Patriots are, of course, Julian Edelman’s former team and they are still helmed by his head coach, Bill Belichick. The Bucs are led by two of Edelman’s former teammates, Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski.
If the Buccaneers make it to the Super Bowl, Edelman will win $170,000. If the Patriots make it, the payout will be $375,000. If we get the Patriots-Bucs Super Bowl matchup that many were anticipating at one point this season, he’ll turn $100,000 in social media payments into $645,000.
Both squads will be facing an uphill battle to make it that far. The New England Patriots are the 6-seed in the AFC and have to travel to Buffalo this weekend. They would likely have to win 3 road games to make it to the Super Bowl.
The Bucs have a somewhat simpler path. They’re the 2-seed in the NFC and get a home matchup against the Eagles. They’ll get at least one more home game after that, but could have to travel to Lambeau Field for the NFC Championship for the second year in a row.
Julian Edelman bet big on the people he built his career with. Let’s see if they can deliver him some big wins.
