Jarryd Hayne mania continues to sweep Australia with punters confident the ‘Hayne Plane’ will be named Super Bowl MVP, despite the San Francisco 49ers being a $51 outside chance to win Super Bowl 50.
With Hayne surviving the first round of roster cuts at San Francisco, online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has Hayne as a $1.15 chance to play a 2015/16 NFL regular season game.
Confidence is high that Hayne will not only make the final 53-man squad but will star for the 49ers, with Sportsbet receiving more than 30 bets for Hayne to be named the Super Bowl 50 MVP at juicy odds of $101.
Punters believe Hayne will be an instant NFL superstar and earn selection in the 2015/16 Pro Bowl, with Sportsbet set to take a $10,000 hit if the former Parramatta Eel is selected in the All-Star match, while more than $5,000 has been bet on Hayne to score a touchdown in the 2015/16 regular season.
“Hayne’s efforts in San Francisco mean he is almost certain to secure a contract for the 2015/16 NFL season, with punters confident he can take the NFL by storm when he pulls on the pads and helmet for the 49ers later this year,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Bulmer.
