NFL Betting: Tucker’s popularity soaring
By Andrew Scott Sunday, 29 December 2013 01:20
Tucker feels the love from NFL betting fans, pay per head services, billboards around the city, Twitter, and even felt it at a local mall.
Pay per head services found out that less than 24 hours after Tucker kicked the winning 61-yard field goal in Baltimore’s 18-16 victory over the Detroit Lions on Tuesday night, hundreds of fans lined up to get his autograph. One person waited seven hours for the player, and also brought him a mix tape.
“I started crying,” Ashley Frampton said. “That’s why I’m first in line; I’m going to ask him to marry me.”
Price per head services find it pretty hard to go anywhere in Baltimore without hearing somebody talk about Tucker or seeing some kind of admiration for the player.
One company quickly went to work to get Tucker T-shirts for sale by Tuesday. Billboards popped up around town, which include one that reads: “In Tucker We Trust.”
Football betting fans learned that Tucker went to Twitter and reminded his fans that St. Louis Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein is already nicknamed Legatron.
Appreciate all the kind words and the idea of a nickname, but ‘Legatron’ has alrdy been earned by another quality PK, Greg Z..Open to ideas!

Tucker quickly realised how popular he is, especially with fantasy football owners, saying after the game that he was not even able to turn on his cellphone.
“My Twitter mentions were kind of freaking out on me, enough to suck all the battery out of my phone,” Tucker said on Tuesday.
The player also received 61 text messages.
“So, I thought that was coincidental,” said Tucker, alluding to the fact that it matched the distance of his winning field goal in Detroit.
