Trey Lance was once the guy everybody had their eyes on. Now he is no longer part of the picture as the San Francisco 49ers move forward.
An injury to the starting QB may be horrific news for some teams. But for the Niners, it may be good news for head coach Kyle Shanahan, in spite of himself.
Jimmy G (aka Jimmy Garoppolo) is back in the saddle, and he will lead the 49ers onto the field at Mile High against Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos in the Sunday night game that is slated to begin at 8:20 PM ET on NBC. Keep in mind that BetAnySports patrons have a lot to take advantage of, including reduced juice, so you can go into the game with much better odds than usual.
Lance had to leave last Sunday's game against Seattle with a broken ankle (for which he has had surgery), and he has been ruled out for the season. He had experienced a rough season debut against Chicago in awful weather, as San Francisco suffered a defeat. Garoppolo had to step in and didn't blow anyone away with his numbers (13 of 21, 154 yards). But the Niners won it 27-7.
You have to admit that when the Seattle Seahawks were compelled to trade Russell Wilson, at his request more or less, they became a weaker side. And for the purposes of this opening weekend of NFL action, that sort of compounds itself, as Wilson is now the quarterback of their Monday night opponents, the Denver Broncos. So the general consensus is that it's "thumbs down" with Seattle and "thumbs up" with Denver as of the start of the regular season.
But is that really the case? That's something BetOnline customers have to examine in advance of this game, which takes place at Lumen Field in Seattle at 8:15 p.m. ET on Monday.
Wilson had an injury-plagued season a year ago, and the opinion on the part of some is that he came back a little too soon in order to help his team try to make a wild-card spot in the playoffs. All told, he still had solid numbers, throwing for 25 touchdowns with six interceptions and 3113 yards. The difference between 2021 and other seasons is that he had just 183 yards on the ground. There is no question that Wilson's scrambling ability is a big factor in his effectiveness. And he would much rather take a sack then throw a pick.
It is very hard to handicap a game when you don't know who's playing. And it's especially difficult if you don't know who's playing quarterback. At the moment, BetAnySportscustomers are hit with this dilemma in the rescheduled game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Washington Football Team. If you are making your NFL picks for this one, you may want to wait and see who passes their tests.
And what we mean by that is, their tests for Covid-19, which has, by way of an outbreak, wreaked all kinds of havoc on the NFL schedule.
We're not sure of the exact count, but Washington has had over 20 players on the reserve list. And while coach Ron Rivera insists that 80% percent of those guys are asymptomatic, the protocol itself still has the potential of keeping them out.
What's painful here is that starting quarterback Taylor Heinicke and his backup, Kyle Allen, are, as of press time, not eligible to play. So this team may be forced to go with Garrett Gilbert as the starter. And he has not even been with the team for a week.
If you are a savvy Super Bowl bettor, you know that you are going to have the chance to bet on special halftime odds that are going to be posted at, well, at the half, when you look at the BetAnySports interface. So settle down, whether it's with Mary J. Blige in the background or not, and make some money during the halftime break by betting the halftime odds. We'll try to put together some numbers to help you out.
And if you are seeing this BEFORE the game.......
SUPER BOWL LVI
Cincinnati Bengals (13-7 SU & ATS) at Los Angeles Rams (15-5 SU, 10-10 ATS)
Live at SoFi Stadium
Sunday, February 13 -- 6:30 PM ET
This may sound crazy to you, but the New England Patriots could be one of the top three teams in the National Football League right now. The Pats opened their season with a disappointing loss to the Miami Dolphins, as they were breaking in a new quarterback.
But they've come a long way since then. New England is the possessor of a four-game winning streak, and it could have easily been six (with narrow losses to Dallas and Tampa Bay). And that quarterback might be on his way to the Rookie of the Year award. BetAnySports customers need to recognize this as they approach their NFL betting for Thursday night's game against the Atlanta Falcons.
The kickoff is set for 8:20 PM ET at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, and you can see it on NFL Network, Fox Network and Amazon Prime. And while that's happening, you can stay involved in the action with real-time wagering through Super Lines, Premier Lines and Ultimate Lines.
Of course, before the game begins, reduced juice gives you a lot of value and helps you save money over the course of time.
Obviously we saw a quarterback duel for the ages last weekend as Patrick Mahomes threw for 378 yards on 33 completions against the Buffalo Bills, highlighting that by bringing his team on a drive for the tying field goal with only 13 seconds left in regulation.
If you saw the former MVP in the early part of the campaign, you might not have thought such things were possible. The fact of the matter is, Mahomes looked quite a bit off-balance as he was getting used to a different way teams were defending against him.
But mysteries like that don't exist anymore for him, and he comes into the AFC Championship game against the Cincinnati Bengals with guns blazing. BetAnySports customers can see that game at 3:05 p.m. Eastern time as it comes from Arrowhead Stadium.
The NFL owners will be having a series of online meeting to discuss various matters relating to the pro football league. Of course, they will be talking about health and safety protocols regarding COVID-19, and the plans for the Super Bowl LV. They will also discuss the possibility of extending the regular season in 2021, something bookies at SportsbookPayPerHead.com would be looking forward to.
One of the concerns of the league is the COVID-19 cases that teams get. So far, for December 6-12, there are 14 cases from players and 31 from staff. Despite the number of cases, this is actually a decline comparing it to previous weeks. The NFL has stricter protocols and strict sanctions to help address the issue of cases in the league.
