Mojo is a sports stock market that allows you to bet on the careers of athletes. The share price is like a traditional "line" in Vegas, but instead of a stat like total touchdowns, you're betting on career stats!
Share prices move in real-time, just like sports betting lines, based on performance, news and the market signals from YOU, such as taking the over (Go Long) or under (Go Short) on a stock. Mojo uses a stock market interface to enable users to trade in and out of their bets at any time!
Multipliers allow you to customize your risk and reward if you want to try and make more (and risk more) in a short period of time. The cool thing about multipliers is that your downside is capped at the value of your initial bet and you have unlimited upside on Long Multipliers.
The Playoffs have an interesting element on Mojo where the Super Bowl winning team gets a 5 times multiplier for their performance in that one game. Furthermore, each win in the playoffs gives a player another game to accumulate Mojo Value.
However, that does not mean that a player’s stock will go up with each win. Joe Burrow had a relatively quiet game last week, but expectedly beat the Ravens and his stock went down slightly.
With this in mind, we should look to bet on players who have a good chance to win the Super Bowl while not straying far away from our normal analysis and valuation of them.
Hurts should be looked at as a future franchise QB. The Eagles went 14-3 and secured the top seed in the NFC thanks to him.
After years of doubts about his passing ability, Hurts silenced doubters with the fifth-best EPA/play and the sixth-best PFF passing grade during the regular season.
Despite this, his share price of $58.23 lies among players like Andy Dalton and Ryan Tannehill when it should be around $65-$75 in the range of Lamar Jackson or Deshaun Watson.
Aiyuk was quietly the 49ers most productive receiver this season with 78 receptions for 1,015 yards and eight touchdowns in an offense that also featured Deebo Samuel, George Kittle, and Christian McCaffrey.
His share price of $13.53 lies in the range of role players like Mike Williams and Tyler Boyd. However, Aiyuk has shown WR1 traits despite not getting WR1 volume.
Not only does his price carry room for growth on the way to a Super Bowl run, but it could rise if he’s traded over the offseason to a team who would feature him as their alpha.
Toney will probably remain a role player for the remainder of the Chiefs’ season. However, his stock price of $6.77 — which lies in the range of players like Joshua Palmer and Nico Collins — is far too low.
The Chiefs have put an emphasis on getting the ball in his hands since he arrived and that could continue through the postseason. With that, the Chiefs are also the favorites to win the Super Bowl right now, giving Toney an increased likelihood of earning the 5x bonus.
That is tons of upside before even acknowledging the chance his role grows next season with no obvious replacement and added time to develop chemistry with Patrick Mahomes.
For now, expect consistent schemed touches, especially in the red zone, and creative plays by Andy Reid to get the ball in his hands. Toney has a habit of making the most of his touches with 6.9 YAC/rec (ninth out of 132 WRs) and 11.7 yards per carry on a handful of rushing touches.
He is a fantastic buy-low candidate, short term play, and career-long bet.
