PERUSING THE PLAYERS
Jimmy Garoppolo is reunited with his old Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels in Las Vegas, however bettors aren’t sold on his MVP chances. Even at odds of +7500, Garoppolo ranks 35th in handle for this market at 0.07%.
Another Raider whose stock has been down in betting markets has been Tyree Wilson. The No. 7 pick has seen his Defensive Rookie of the Year odds rise from +750 to +850. Wilson has the third-lowest odds behind Will Anderson (+350) and Jalen Carter (+650), but cornerbacks Devon Witherspoon (+900) and Christian Gonzalez (+1000) have closed the gap.
