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.

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo on NFL future: "I'll worry about that at the end of the year"

Jimmy Garoppolo is setting himself up for a nice payday next year. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback is scheduled to be a free agent, and his market is expected to be much improved compared to this past offseason. Garoppolo expected to be elsewhere this season, even after his trade stock plummeted following offseason shoulder surgery. With no one interested in a quarterback going through rehab, Garoppolo signed a restructured one-year deal with the 49ers to serve as Trey Lance's backup. The one caveat being that San Francisco couldn't use the franchise tag on him in 2023, allowing him to test the free agent market freely. Garoppolo entered the season looking to support Lance and do what he could in his role as QB2. However, everything changed in Week 2 when

That wasn't the only hit that was questionable like that. Throughout the whole game, it was like that, but that's football. "It was a gritty game. I'm proud of the guys today, how they fought through the adversity that was thrown at us. There was all kinds of adversity, and we just kept going. I think
