The offseason has seen many things happening ranging from the analysis of the most improved squads to the worst declines when it comes to the overall strength of teams. Football fans have also seen offseason additions to different squads, but the most thrilling and much-awaited announcement was the release of 2018 MVP odds. ESPN has already declared to be working tirelessly with its NFL insiders to predict the most likely candidate to win the 2018 MVP honors. Currently, among the mentioned candidates, the prediction shows that Jimmy Garoppolo is ranked 13th with other NFL MVP candidates tied with him. San Francisco 49ers
odds could improve if he ranks higher than the current +2000.
Evidently, no one would argue negatively about the efforts made by the San Francisco 49ers
to invest heavily on both their offensive and defensive sides of the ball. However, nearly all their hopes are banked on Jimmy Garoppolo who holds the mantle about how good they perform this coming season. The best definition of Jimmy G’s MVP candidature is that he has the potential to elevate the inconsistent 49ers odds to heights the team wouldn’t have attained without him. With such a focused definition, defensive tackle DeForest Buckner and his cohort as well as running back Jerick McKinnon have the chance to utilize Garoppolo’s skills and experience this season.
The best part is if Garoppolo can help this team reach the playoffs, which could be a good sign for the 49ers odds to improve further. The QB has managed to surprise many people with unbelievable plays even during his tenure with the New England Patriots
. For the moment, all NFL fans and pundits can choose to analyze and even overreact to the most probable outcomes that will come out of Jimmy G’s executions on the field to improve the 49ers odds this season!
In mid-May, the 2018 MVP odds were released by Betonline.ag. The exhaustive list puts together some of the top players, and Jimmy Garoppolo lies 13th at +2000, meaning a bet of $100 gives you a $2,000 return on your investment. Both Deshaun Watson and Derek Carr are tied with the quarterback in the same position. At the summit of the MVP list is Aaron Rodgers sitting boastfully with +600, and quarterback Tom Brady follows closely with +750. The Philadelphia Eagles
QB Carson Wentz and the 39-year-old Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints also scrambles for the top place with +1100. Running back David Johnson of the Arizona Cardinals
is ranked 21st with +4000 odds and as the first non-quarterback on the 2018 MVP odds list.
Ranking Garoppolo, Watson, and Carr with equal odds seems appropriate. Jimmy Garoppolo’s efforts in the first five games as a starter for the 49ers helped the team to go 5-0, a great achievement that not only led to an extension of his contract, but also a nine-figure pay. When it comes to Carr, the QB also received a nine-figure extension of his contract last offseason; however, the 27-year-old seemed to have slowed down. Lastly, the 22-year-old Watson successfully won the hearts of fans during his breakout rookie campaign. However, fate would have the potential star rest at home after tore his ACL. The bottom line is that the trio have experienced their vicissitudes, but generally, their upside is more vibrant.
