The San Francisco 49ers inflicted another defeat on the New York Giants yesterday, making it another awful Sunday to start Joe Judge's tenure in the Big Apple.
A heavy 36-9 defeat, to a Niners team riddled with injuries, was not a good look for the first-year Head Coach, and now bettors are backing him to be the first HC to leave his post this year.
A huge 62.1% of bets since Sunday have been on Judge to get the can first, despite having only had 3 games in charge of the Giants, and their star player, Saquon Barkley, out injured for the remainder of the season.
Due to Judge's recent arrival, the bookmakers don't expect him to be leaving the role soon, pricing him at +4000 to leave his role before any other HC. Instead the betting favorite is another former member of the New England Patriots coaching staff, Matt Patricia of the Detroit Lions, who is +300 to be the first coach sacked, despite that shock win against the Arizona Cardinals.
Since last night's games it's been the Atlanta Falcons' Dan Quinn, at +1000, who is the second most popular wager with bettors, with 22.13% of bets being on him leaving his post first. The Falcons crashed to another embarrassing defeat yesterday, when for the second straight week they lost having had a 99% liklihood of winning the game, per NFL Next Gen Stats.
Judge's fellow HC compatriot in New York, Adam Gase, priced at +8000, is the third most popular bet, accounting for 10.99% of bets in the market. The New York Jets are currently rivalling the Giants for the infamous tag of 'worst team in football' and having ruined former first-round pick Sam Darnold, it looks like time could be up soon for Adam Gase, a man who somehow retains the guise of a 'QB whisperer' despite doing nothing to deserve it over the past few years.
