49ers’ Super Bowl odds improve with Jimmy Garoppolo at QB

Sep 18, 2022 at 10:07 PM--


FanDuel Sportsbook listed the odds of the San Francisco 49ers winning Super Bowl 57 at +2000 just before Sunday's morning slate of games. After fumbling what should have been a breeze of a regular-season opener against the Chicago Bears, the team bounced back with a Week 2 win over the Seattle Seahawks and improved to 1-1.

Now, the 49ers' odds of winning are at +1800, per FanDuel Sportsbook. So what changed other than improving to .500 on the season? There was an unexpected change at quarterback.

San Francisco lost starter Trey Lance, who will undergo season-ending surgery on the broken ankle suffered during the first quarter of Sunday's 27-7 victory. Jimmy Garoppolo replaced Lance and guided the Niners to the bitter-sweet win.

Perhaps oddsmakers feel Garoppolo makes the team better than it was with the now-injured second-year quarterback. After all, Garoppolo led the 49ers to the NFC Championship Game last season, his second time doing so in a three-year span. This year's squad is arguably improved over last year's.

Oddsmakers have the 49ers are tied with the Baltimore Ravens for the No. 8 spot. The Buffalo Bills (+490), Kansas City Chiefs (+700), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+700), Green Bay Packers (+1300), Philadelphia Eagles (+1400), Los Angeles Chargers (+1500), and Los Angeles Rams (+1500) all have better odds.

San Francisco previously owned the tenth-best Super Bowl odds in the NFL. The 49ers' odds of representing the NFC in Super Bowl 57 jumped from +900 to +850.

After failing to find a trade partner for the quarterback, Garoppolo returned to the 49ers on a reworked one-year deal, signed just before the start of the season. He'll be the team's QB1 moving forward. Next, San Francisco will head on the road to face quarterback Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos in Week 3.

"We've got a chance at a Super Bowl": Jimmy Garoppolo feeling fortunate to still be with 49ers

Jimmy Garoppolo was headed out the door. His bags were packed, and his mail was forwarded. At least, in his mind, they were. After all, he wasn't sure where he was headed yet. Instead of saying goodbye to Santa Clara, the San Francisco 49ers, and his teammates, his career took an unexpected U-turn. He opted to remain with the Niners, his home over the last four-and-a-half seasons. For the 49ers, they lucked out. The worst-case scenario happened on Sunday. Trey Lance suffered a broken ankle and will undergo season-ending surgery today. Keeping Garoppolo on the roster suddenly doesn't seem as foolish as some wanted everyone to believe. San Francisco remains a championship contender, even after losing its starting quarterback. Not every team can overcome such a

49ers-Broncos: Jimmy is going to be Jimmy

No matter how you want to spin last night's loss to the Denver Broncos, this one was solely on the quarterback. Jimmy Garoppolo finished the game, completing 18 passes on 29 attempts for 211 yards, one touchdown, and an interception. Statistically, Garoppolo was better than Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson, but as Garoppolo says, stats don't matter. It's all about winning football games. It's almost like 49ers fans are stuck in an episode of Rod Serling's Twilight Zone when Jimmy Garoppolo plays. One week you get this fired-up style of quarterback that appears willing to do whatever it takes to win a game, and then you have the incompetent type of quarterback that looks lost like a deer in headlights. The first quarter of the game seemed promising. The
