With NFL free agency in full swing and the Draft on the horizon, FanDuel Sportsbook has released the full list of projected NFL win totals to bet on ahead of the 2020 campaign.

49ers Win Total 2020

With plenty of teams to argue over at first glance, let's take a look at the San Francisco 49ers, who appear to be nothing short of disrespected by an opening 2020 NFL season projected 10.5-win total.

That's right, the reigning NFC Champion 49ers are somehow projected to win only 10.5 games in the 2020 NFL season, according to the opening odds.

While San Francisco has lost names like DL DeForest Buckner and WR Emmanuel Sanders since the beginning of free agency, this is largely still the same team that went 13-3 in the 2019 regular season on their way to nearly winning Super Bowl LIV.

Not to mention, the trade that sent Buckner to the Indianapolis Colts also sent the No. 13 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft in return for the 49ers, mind you.

Critical playmakers on both sides of the ball, like QB Jimmy Garoppolo and TE George Kittle on offense or DE Nick Bosa on defense, haven't gone anywhere, nor has head coach and offensive guru Kyle Shanahan.

Yet, somehow, this roster is still expected to win nearly three full fewer games this year than it did last year. It's also worth noting the 49ers currently boast the league's third-best odds to win Super Bowl LV in 2021, but this disrespected win total seems to reflect something else entirely.
