49ers Super Bowl Odds Have Them as Championship Favorites Following Divisional Round Victory Over Vikings
By Zach Brunner
After claiming the top overall seed in the NFC, the San Francisco 49ers enjoyed a bye week during Wild Card Weekend. Their well-rested team defeated the Minnesota Vikings in the Divisional Round in dominating fashion, leading to their odds to win the Super Bowl jumping to +170, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
The 49ers entered the playoffs with the second-best odds to win the Super Bowl (+400), and following their dominating win and the Baltimore Ravens' loss to the Tennessee Titans, the 49ers now top the list of odds to win it all.
The week off served San Francisco well, allowing the Niners to get their defense healthy. Their presence was felt on Saturday, holding the Vikings to only seven first downs, with one earned from penalty. The 49ers also held the Vikings to 2-of-12 on third downs, while totaling six sacks and two turnovers.
The 49ers will host the winner of the Seattle Seahawks vs Green Bay Packers game, and the Niners have wins over both this season.
Prior to Sunday's games, the second-best odds to win the Super Bowl belong to the Kansas City Chiefs (+180) ahead of their matchup with the Houston Texans (+2200). The Tennessee Titans (+550) are next, and in the NFC the Packers (+800) and Seahawks (+1300) are both sizable underdogs to win it all.
