49ers' Super Bowl odds increase after Lance's season-ending injury

49ers

Trey Lance's season-ending injury might not spell doom for the 49ers this season. 

After the second-year quarterback suffered a broken right ankle in San Francisco's 27-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday at Levi's Stadium, the 49ers' odds to win Super Bowl LVII actually went up. 

Our partners at PointsBet had the 49ers listed at +2000 to win the Super Bowl prior to Sunday's game. Now with Garoppolo under center, San Francisco, tied with Baltimore and Minnesota, sits at +1800, behind Buffalo (+475), Kansas City (+600), Tampa Bay (+750), Green Bay (+1200), Los Angeles Rams (+1400), Philadelphia (+1400), and Los Angeles Chargers (+1500). 

The 49ers holding on to Jimmy Garoopolo as the backup paid off, and now the veteran quarterback -- who has led San Francisco to both Super Bowl and NFC Championship Game appearances in two of the last three seasons -- will take over as the starter.

With arguably a better roster in 2022 than any previous season, Garoppolo and the 49ers still are well-equipped to make a deep playoff run.
