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.

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

By David Bonilla

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



Five Reasons to Trust Trey Lance as 49ers' Quarterback

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. Trey Lance's college tape litters the internet. It isn't unusual to discover hours of footage covering all the plays



Sam Acho picks 49ers' Trey Lance as 2nd-year QB to make biggest jump in 2022

Last week, ESPN analyst Rob Ninkovich looked at the 2021 rookie quarterback class and stated he expects Trey Lance to make the "biggest jump" in Year 2. Another ESPN analyst, Sam Acho, agrees with that prediction. Why is Lance the best second-year quarterback, in Acho's opinion? It's because of the weapons around him. The 22-year-old quarterback will have wide receiver Deebo Samuel (assuming the offseason rift can be mended) and tight end George Kittle at his disposal. "Yes, there was a reason Zach Wilson was the second pick overall last year," Acho said. "There's a reason Trey Lance was third, right? Because he's that good as well." More critical for



Jerry Rice on why 49ers QB Trey Lance is 'ready to go'

Jerry Rice seems to be all aboard the Trey Lance train as the 2022 San Francisco 49ers season approaches. The legendary former 49ers receiver spoke briefly about Lance with KSBW-TV in Monterey this week while he was in the area promoting his energy drink, G.O.A.T. Fuel. Rice was asked about Lance during his appearance and said he likes his dual threat potential over what Jimmy Garoppolo brings to the table and that he thinks Lance is ready to take over the team's starting quarterback spot this season. "Trey Lance, I think he's ready to go," Rice said. "And I think he's incredible because he has that one aspect that Jimmy doesn't have, and that's the threat of running with the ball and stuff like that. So his mobility, his strong arm, and this guy, he's before his
