Throwback insane Betting popularity Mitch Trubisky

THROWBACK TO THIS INSANE BETTING POPULARITY ON MITCH TRUBISKY

JUN 21, 2022  (9H41)      V. CARBONNEAU
Mitch Trubisky was drafted by the Chicago Bears in the first round with the second overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. The Bears moved up from the third overall pick by trading the San Francisco 49ers two third-round picks and a fourth-round pick. He was the highest-selected quarterback in the draft.

He played ok for his first two seasons. He was surrounded by a lot of talent, especially on the defensive side of the ball.

With that being said, Trubisky was the darlings of the NFL MVP futures market prior to the 2019 season, his 3rd year. Trubisky led all players in NFL MVP tickets written at Caesar's sports books. The QB's popularity was similar at other shops up and down the Strip.

Trubisky certainly had his share of detractors coming into the season, but any warnings were drowned out by a perfect storm of both fanbase size and perceived bet value.

Bettors could get Trubisky for MVP at Caesars at 75-1 when the market first opened on May 20 and 200-1 when Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook posted on June 25.

Considering the Bears were around 10-1 to win the Super Bowl, a Trubisky MVP bet held a much better payout if you believed a jump in his play was necessary to get the Bears to that championship level.

Let's just say that betting for Trubisky to win MVP was not a smart financial decision...
