San Francisco 49ers
Stadium: Levi's Stadium, CA
Super Bowls: 5
This is purely based on the current wagers that have been received so far. According to the early 49ers odds for next Super Bowl in Las Vegas, the San Francisco are above some of the playoff teams in the just concluded season.
Now that the Super Bowl LII is over, the 49ers can now put their house in order for the next year's championship game. So far, there are many people who have set their eyes on San Francisco as the likely winner of Super Bowl LIII. It's quite clear that the 49ers are now getting some love. In the words of RJ Bells, who's popularly known for providing odds from Vegas sports books, the 49ers are getting odds of 25-1 to lift the next Super Bowl that will be held in Atlanta, on February 3, 2019. This has placed them to 11th as the favorite team.
Others on this list include: Philadelphia (8-1), New England (5-1), Pittsburgh and Green Bay (10-1), Dallas and Atlanta (20-1), Minnesota (12-1) and Los Angeles (20-1) among others. MyBookie SuperBook, has has the Niners at 20-1. There is a strong feeling of optimism about the San Francisco. With the new quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, the Niners showed a remarkable improvement in 2017, after winning 5 straight games that helped them to finish at 6-10. A few days ago, several reports have indicated that Garoppolo and the team are getting closer to signing a multiyear contract.
In this offseason, there are many draft picks available in addition to salary-cap space, which the 49ers can use this opportunity to add new signings into already a team full of young talents. Of course the future of 49ers looks brighter this year than 2017. Last year, the team received some free agents while under the head coach Shanahan and new manager John Lynch, which saw the team receive 200-1 odds in March by one publication as the favorite to lift the Super Bowl LII title.
San Francisco experienced a sharp rise in momentum toward the 2018 as they completed the 2017 regular season with 5 straight wins. This was also the time they had Jimmy Garoppolo as their quarterback. It's estimated that there is $110 million in the projected cap space and 9 draft picks, which gives the 49ers every reason to make a major improvement during this offseason. This will definitely boost their chances for the playoffs in the next season. It will also be a turnaround for a team that started 2017 season with poor performance of 0-9 to becoming one of the playoff teams in 2018. We can say, this was possible due to the impact of having Garoppolo on the San Francisco franchise.
The 49ers is the team to watch in the next season. They have shown that they have what it takes to win the Super Bowl LIII. But, they have to use this offseason to sign new players to help them win the next next Super Bowl. For now, its a wait and see, as the team makes improvement on all its positions. Expect a rejuvenated Niners team.
