Bettors seem to believe in 49ers QB Trey Lance

The narrative surrounding Trey Lance and his readiness to take over as the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers has been primarily negative thus far in the offseason, especially from the national media. Doubts abound about the second-year quarterback, but that hasn't seemed to deter bettors at Caesar's Sportsbook in Las Vegas.

According to Max Meyer, an editorial content writer for Caesar's Sportsbook, more money has come in on Trey Lance to win NFL MVP than Aaron Rodgers and Patrick Mahomes combined.


All of this money has driven his odds from +20000 all the way down to +6000.


According to DraftKings Sportsbook, as of May 11, Lance actually had the 19th best odds to win the award, tied with teammate Deebo Samuel at +5000.

While the national media may not be very high on Lance and his prospects as the starting quarterback for the 2022 49ers, the betting public seems to have quite a bit of faith in Lance and what he will be able to produce and accomplish in Kyle Shanahan's offense.

OTA's begin tomorrow, May 24, which will give fans their first glimpse of Lance as he takes all of the first-team reps while Jimmy Garoppolo remains sidelined from his shoulder injury and subsequent surgery.

It will be very interesting to monitor not only the narrative surrounding Trey Lance as OTAs, mandatory minicamp, and training camp play out over the summer, but what the betting markets look like as well.

If you're thinking about putting money down on Lance to win NFL MVP for the 2022 season, you may want to do it now in case those odds keep getting lower.

H/t to Patrick Tulini for the find.

PFF: 49ers QB Trey Lance one of players under most pressure to perform in Year 2

While there are several success stories of rookies flourishing immediately in the NFL, there are certain players, especially quarterbacks, whose learning curves require some more seasoning. Take Peyton Manning, who threw for 28 interceptions in his rookie year before becoming one of the best quarterbacks of all time, as an example. Earlier this week, PFF named ten players from the 2021 NFL Draft class that are under the most pressure to perform in Year 2, and unsurprisingly, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance was amongst the group. Lance, who was selected third overall in the 2021 NFL Draft, played

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance has started to attract serious attention from the media, as many analysts are coming on board with the 22-year-old's potential as he enters his second NFL season. During a recent appearance on NFL Total Access, former Green Bay Packers receiver James Jones continued the trend, going as far as comparing Lance to his former quarterback, Aaron Rodgers. "I believe we're looking at a bonafide superstar [in Lance], like Patrick Mahomes and Aaron Rodgers," Jones said. "We had a small sample size of Aaron Rodgers, but all you heard out of the locker room and the people around Aaron was, 'Just wait. You



Bruschi: 49ers' Trey Lance has 'most to prove' among second-year QBs

The quarterbacks from the 2021 draft class will be linked together and compared for a long time. Most received a significant amount of playing time during their rookie seasons. The one who did not was San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance. He started just two games and spent most of his freshman NFL season learning behind veteran Jimmy Garoppolo. The upcoming season will be different, though. Lance is slated to become the 49ers' full-time starter, with Garoppolo likely to be shipped out of Santa Clara. One ESPN analyst believes Lance has the most to prove among the 2021 first-round quarterback class that also includes Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, Justin Fields, and Mac Jones. "He is the one that has the most to prove because you almost have to prove your

With the debate raging in the media and fandom about whether Trey Lance will start this year, an important fact has been lost by some. The team says Lance will start. That begs several questions. What kind of quarterback is Trey Lance? What can fans expect from this fledgling play-caller? Can Lance buck the "Shanahan Curse" and win without changing his first name to "Jimmy?" These are fair questions (Well, maybe the last one is a bit facetious.). With all this in mind, here are five reasons to trust Trey Lance as the 49ers' starting quarterback this season: He has displayed incredible athletic potential.
