Ted Lasso: Season 3 Prop Bet Odds Ahead of Fall Premiere

Ted Lasso: Season 3 Prop Bet Odds Ahead of Fall Premiere
By Howard Gensler
Fact Checked by Thomas Leary

The hit Apple TV+ sitcom “Ted Lasso” returns for season 3 this fall, and with its win at the end of season 2, Lasso’s AFC Richmond team has been promoted back to the Premier League. 

Ironically, the character of Lasso was launched for commercial spots to promote NBC’s Premier League broadcasts. Lasso, played by popular Kansan Jason Sudeikis, proved so popular that a series was developed around him.

He’s a Division II college football coach from Wichita, who because he knows nothing about soccer, is hired by AFC Richmond’s new owner, Rebecca Welton (played by Hannah Waddingham), to get back at her philandering ex-husband, who loved the team.

AFC Richmond isn’t very good to begin with and the players think Lasso is a joke of a coach (the club wouldn't have garnered much notice across Kansas sports gambling in that first year).

But throughout the first season, he wins them over with his folksy charm and relentless positivity. At one point during a particular challenge, Lasso says to his assistant, "Coach, I got a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore."

Despite Lasso's best efforts, a loss to Manchester City in the final episode of Season 1 relegates Richmond to a lower-tier league. Lasso offers to resign, but Welton, won over by her coach's authentic charm, will not accept his resignation. The two vow to get the team promoted back to the Premier League, which (spoiler alert) does occur at the end of Season 2, and eventually win it all. 

Could that be a Season 3 spoiler?

Producers of the show say the third season will go a little deeper into the characters’ back stories and certainly deal with Rebecca’s ex purchasing AFC Richmond rival West Ham United. 

But there are also love stories in play: Will Rebecca and Sam, Richmond’s young Nigerian player, rekindle their romance? Will marketing professional/model Keeley Jones and assistant coach Roy Kent's relationship survive? 

Big questions to be answered.

How Will The Hit Show Sign Off?

In addition to becoming the most watched series on Apple TV+, “Ted Lasso” has been a critical smash. Its first season received 20 Emmy nominations, the most ever for a first-year comedy. 

The show won seven Emmys, including for Sudeikis, Waddingham and Outstanding Comedy Series. The second season also received 20 nominations — those awards will be announced Sept. 12. With the state of Kansas (as well as the rest of TV sports show fans) all seemingly behind Coach Lasso, operators like BetMGM Sportsbook Kansas may want to get in on awards show betting down the line.

To celebrate the return of “Lasso,” and Sudeikis’s ties to the Sunflower State, BetKansas.com utilized previous episodic knowledge, media publications, interviews and other resources to develop hypothetical odds for the upcoming third season. 

Assuming this is the final year of the show, as Sudeikis has hinted, where will Ted end up after the final game?

Sports betting in the state should be live sometime toward the start of the show's season. When it happens, BetKansas.com will be the place to be for Kansas sportsbook promos.

Below are the hypothetical odds for all storylines emerging in season 3 of "Ted Lasso."
