Is there Value in Backing 49ers to Capture Super Bowl LVII?

The San Francisco 49ers are the NFL’s hottest team entering the playoffs, but do they have value with their current Super Bowl odds?

This is a question that many bettors are finding themselves asking, with an NFC bracket that is wide open for the taking. 

The 49ers might not have captured the top seed but will have the ability to occupy home field until the NFC Championship Game. San Francisco is tied with the Philadelphia Eagles for the third-shortest Super Bowl odds at +500. 

Below, we’ll check out some of the strengths of the 49ers, but also what might keep you away from backing their Super Bowl odds. 

Why you Should Back the 49ers’ Current Price

The 49ers have an offense with some of the game’s most talented weapons and a defense that can do damage. On offense, Christian McCaffrey and Deebo Samuel have emerged as focal points, but you can’t forget about George Kittle or Brandon Aiyuk. It would likely be an understatement to say the Niners have an overwhelming amount of riches.

Nick Bosa is a bonafide superstar on defense and will likely capture the NFL’s Defensive Player of the Year award. The former Ohio State Buckeye can wreck a game by himself and has to be considered one of the NFL’s most important players entering the playoffs. Their defense allowed the fewest points this year with 277, and it’s hard to find a lot of weaknesses on that side of the ball. 

Biggest Question Mark

The biggest question surrounding the 49ers is whether the team can protect the inexperienced Brock Purdy through the playoffs. Will the moment be too big for him? The 49ers have been in big games before, which should help stabilize the rookie. One noteworthy thing is the 49ers aren’t the only team going into the playoffs with quarterback questions.

Overall Verdict

There’s no hotter team in the NFL, but all it takes is an off day to end a Super Bowl dream. The 49ers have few holes, and if Purdy can continue to manage games, San Fran bettors should like the prospects of their Super Bowl odds of +500.
