Odds to Win the NFC West: 49ers Off to Best Start Since 1990

Odds to win the 2019 NFC West Division title

The NFC West has been perhaps one of the most surprising divisions through the first half of the NFL season as the Los Angeles Rams opened the year as a -180 favorite to win the division but are currently sitting third. Meanwhile, the San Francisco 49ers were third on the preseason oddsboard for the NFC West but are a perfect 8-0 for the first time since 1990 and are -300 faves to be crowned division champs for the first time since 2012.

Online sportsbook Bovada has the San Francisco 49ers favored at -300, followed by the Seattle Seahawks at +400, the Los Angeles Rams at +600 and the Arizona Cardinals at +15000.

Can San Fran Run the Table?

The 49ers have been a great story through the first eight weeks of the season – nine for them as they played the Thursday nighter already. Additionally, within San Francisco’s perfect 8-0 record, five of those games came on the road, with only three away contests remaining on its slate. That being said, there are some extremely difficult games that loom and could flip the Niners’ season around quickly if they aren’t careful.

Looking at the remainder of the 49ers’ schedule, it includes games against Seattle (two), Green Bay, Baltimore, the Rams and New Orleans – brutal. Having eight wins in the bank is definitely nice and puts them in a great position to make their first playoff appearance since 2013, but tough games await and it’ll be interesting to see how they maneuver the rest of the way.

Seattle is Providing the Best Value

Sitting second in the NFC West are the Seattle Seahawks at 6-2. They have lost quite a few of the familiar faces who were the core of the team that went to back-to-back Super Bowls in 2013 and 2014, yet quarterback Russell Wilson remains and is having a tremendous season. In fact, it appears he will be in head-to-head competition with Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers for the NFL MVP this season as he is currently second on the oddsboard.

The Seahawks have a decent schedule in the second half, including two cracks at San Francisco that could allow them to draw even with the division leader. Additionally, Seattle has winnable games against Tampa Bay, Minnesota, Carolina and Arizona that really stand out. The winner of the NFC West could come down to a Week 17 contest when San Francisco pays a visit to CenturyLink Field.

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 oddsmaker’s create future betting lines, they look at everything like 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 champions.

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.
