Pete Watt from Odds Checker has done a few guest posts for us, and he’s back today to give us a few betting odds for the San Francisco 49ers this upcoming season.

There’s a lot of football to be played between now and Super Bowl LV, we hope, which will occur on February 7, 2021. The 49ers are big favorites in their opener against the Arizona Cardinals, but the reigning NFC Champions are also favorites to win the division, NFC, and have the third-best odds to win the Super Bowl.

Pete’s take: According to the figures, oddsmakers are expecting the Niners’ season to start well and get better, with San Francisco heavily favoured to win their opening match, division and conference.

“Beyond that, they are currently rated third likeliest to win the Super Bowl, behind AFC pair Baltimore Ravens and Kansas City Chiefs. Their odds of +1000 carry an implied probability f 9.09% that they will claim the Vince Lombardi trophy in February.

In terms of player specials, Jimmy G’s odds of +4000 look like fairly good value given the offence that he has at his disposal, whilst the strength of their rookie class is exemplified by the placing of Kinlaw and Aiyuk near the top of their respective markets.

Kyle’s take: A year ago, Jimmy Garoppolo had the 50th best odds entering the regular season to win the MVP. He’s jumped all the way to No. 11 after a great season where he led the Niners to the Super Bowl. Garoppolo isn’t the only player in San Francisco that’s near the top. Both first-round picks are in the top-15 for both Offensive and Defensive Rookie of the Year.

If you are a gambler, you have to place money on the 49ers to win the division, conference, and the Super Bowl, right? Those odds are all too good to pass up on.
