NFC West Odds: 49ers Favored In A Stacked Division

NFC West Division Odds

In the midst of the coronavirus outbreak, we can find some solace in looking ahead to the NFL season that will hopefully start on time in early September. Free agency is just beginning and the NFL draft is a few weeks away, but a quick look ahead at the season and you can find the San Francisco 49ers favored at -110 to win the NFC West Division.

Online sportsbook BetOnline has made the Niners the favorites at -110 followed by the Seattle Seahawks at +350, the Los Angeles Rams at +400 and the Arizona Cardinals at +500 to round out the NFC West.

Odds as of March 19 at BetOnline

San Francisco 49ers (-110)

In its first full season with Jimmy Garoppolo as starting quarterback, all San Francisco did was go 13-3 in the regular season to win the NFC West and advance all the way to the Super Bowl in a game it was leading until late. The team is relatively intact as far as free agency is concerned with no major setbacks.

Additionally, one can only imagine how good reigning Defensive Rookie of the Year Nick Bosa will be in his second year. I wouldn’t be surprised to see this team draft a wide receiver to take the pressure off Deebo Samuel or perhaps look for some help up the middle on the defensive side of the ball. Regardless, look for San Fran to be a Super Bowl contender again in 2020-21.

Seattle Seahawks (+350)

The Seahawks are going to have a new-look offensive line that could be a cause for concern early in the season, but assuming they jell, it could be a good thing in the latter stages when it means the most. I like the signing of three-time Pro Bowl tight end Greg Olsen if he can stay healthy, having not played all 16 games in a season since 2016.

Defensively, the team is obviously going to take a hit with Jadeveon Clowney and Ziggy Ansah leaving via free agency, and it appears that Seattle will be looking for a good pass rusher off the edge in the draft. The offense should be fine with the core returning, the defense could be a little questionable but in the end, the Seahawks will always be a tough out.

Los Angeles Rams (+400)

In the span of a year, the Rams went from a team that looked like it was going to be a dynasty to a team that missed the playoffs. Running back Todd Gurley failed to play all 16 games for the fourth time in his five-year career and had the fewest rushing yards and the third-fewest touchdowns of his career. Meanwhile, QB Jared Goff regressed year over year, throwing 10 fewer touchdowns while tossing four more interceptions than he did in 2018.

Defensively, LA lost its best linebacker, Cory Littleton, and defensive ends Michael Brockers and Dante Fowler through free agency. The Rams also don’t have a first-round pick this year as the selection was dealt to the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for cornerback Jalen Ramsey. This team has taken a step back and will need to figure out something quickly to get back to the top of the division.

Arizona Cardinals (+500)

If the Rams took a step backward, then the Cardinals took a step forward by landing four-time Pro Bowl wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins in exchange for running back David Johnson. The tailback wasn’t needed anymore after the team placed the transition tag on Kenyan Drake, allowing them to match any offer sheets.

Add Hopkins to the war chest for reigning Offensive Rookie of the Year QB Kyler Murray and there could be some exciting times for the Cardinals. Murray threw for 3,722 yards and 20 touchdowns while also rushing for 544 yards and scoring four more majors on the ground.

The Cards have the eighth overall pick in the upcoming draft and it appears they will use that pick to bolster their offensive line, with all signs pointing to Mekhi Becton from Louisville. More threats, an improved line, another year of maturity for Murray and this team appears to be on the cusp of being a really strong team for years to come.


Understanding NFC West Odds

When you visit any NFL sportsbooks, you’ll notice the odds appear like they do in our chart. The team with the minus sign (-) in front of its odds is the favorite. The rest are underdogs. In some cases, especially in August, you may not see any minus signs. In scenarios like that, the squad with the lowest odds is the fave.

Let’s say you’re looking at San Francisco at -300. If you were to lay down $50, you’d get a payout of $66.67 – your $50 is returned along with your winnings of $16.67. On the other hand, you may look at Seattle at +400 and think they’re going to turn it around. That same $50 would give you a payout of $250 – your original money comes back to you, coupled with your winnings of $200.

Our Odds Calculator will show you what you’d win based on the odds and amount bet.

Underdogs are a riskier bet, which is why they come with a bigger reward. However, don’t bet on them blindly, especially if their odds are too high. When oddsmakers create futures betting lines, they look at everything, including schedule, past performances and roster moves.

What is an NFL Futures Bet?

To place a bet on NFC West odds, you would be making a futures bet. This is a wager made weeks or even months in advance of the end of the NFL season on which team you think has the best odds of becoming divisional champion.

We suggest taking odds you like right away. The lines will move as injuries happen, coaches are fired, and teams move up or down in the standings. You don’t want to miss out on great odds.
