With the NFL training camp still two months away, the regular season continue to remain silent for four month. But, the schedule release came out last month, which is the favorite part for many fans during the offseason. We will look at the first 15 games of the gambling line for the San Francisco 49ers
and their respective points. As soon as the schedule was made public, Sportsbooks went ahead to open the lines for the week 1 matchups. Looking at the 49ers, they'll open for first matchup against their rivals Minnesota Vikings with 4.5 point underdog. With single digit underdog, 49ers odds continue to remain high as one of the main contenders in 2018 Super Bowl.
Given the level of unpredictability in the rest of 2018 NFL season, it's rather amusing how they factored it in when coming up with release lines. However, they left out the lines for week 17 due to unpredictability of the starting lineups for those teams that will make it to playoffs. It's a bit crazy to set lines for December games, but its a fun exercise trying to look at the state of the San Francisco 49ers
. A number of things have changed for year two of the 49ers. Looking at 2015 season, the early release lines predicted that the 49ers will be underdogs for 13 games and favorites in two games. The gambling lines went further to give the team double digit underdogs for 3 road matches against Seattle, Carolina and Arizona.
Last year's gambling lines listed 49ers as 1.5 point favorites to win against the Los Angeles Rams
, which they ended up with 3 point underdogs when the match arrived and remained the underdogs for the rest of the season. They were even double digits underdogs against Seattle. The 49ers were 9 point underdogs in other three of their games. However, this year things have changed since they're listed as favorites in 9 games. Their biggest release line is against Arizona Cardinals
. They're underdogs in six of their games, and the biggest line is +4.5 point against Minnesota which is their season opener.
John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan are currently riding a strong momentum into their second year of contract with the 49ers. They are very promising franchise whose positions are already locked up as the team's roster for 2018 keeps improving. The 49ers are expressing openly about their Super Bowl aspirations. Jimmy Garoppolo is also expected to bring out his super star side this season to assist the team to go to the next level.
Here are the early release lines for 49ers that will help you to consider betting more on the 49ers team than their opposing side, especially where the lines have -120 point meaning the two games are extra juice for the 49ers.
