The San Francisco 49ers' Super Bowl odds saw a slight boost thanks to a Week 2 win and the switch at quarterback. Jimmy Garoppolo replaces starter Trey Lance, who suffered a broken ankle in the Niners' 27-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks and will undergo season-ending surgery today. Keeping Garoppolo on a restructured one-year deal now seems like the 49ers' best offseason move. Once seen as an unnecessary luxury, holding onto the veteran quarterback keeps the team competitive this season. One ESPN analyst, Dan Orlovsky, doesn't agree with oddsmakers, though. He doesn't believe the 49ers are better equipped to make a championship run with Garoppolo at the

No one wants to see a player go down with an injury. The San Francisco 49ers were heartbroken when their second-year quarterback, last year's No. 3 overall pick, suffered a broken ankle during the first quarter of Sunday's 27-7 victory over the Seattle Seahawks. Trey Lance will undergo surgery on Monday. The good news is that the quarterback who led the team to the NFC title game in two of the last three seasons is still on the roster, ready to see if he can create the same type of magic this season before hitting free agency in 2023.
