Injury-ravaged 49ers see Super Bowl odds tumble

The San Francisco 49ers are no longer favored to win the NFC Championship at most sportsbooks following a rash of injuries that include losing defensive linemen Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas for the season.

The 49ers are also dealing with shorter-term injuries to quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, tight end George Kittle and running backs Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman.

The 49ers entered the season as the top NFC Super Bowl contender at DraftKings and FanDuel, which both had San Francisco at +900 behind AFC powers Kansas City and Baltimore. Following Week 2, the 49ers have fallen to +1400 at FanDuel and +2000 at DraftKings.

The Ravens are +500 favorites at both books, with DraftKings offering the Chiefs as co-favorites and FanDuel offering Kansas City at +500.

New Orleans remains the third betting favorite at +1100 by both books despite Monday night’s loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. The 2-0 Seattle Seahawks have climbed to +1200 at DraftKings and +1300 at FanDuel.

The 49ers opened the season as +450 favorites to win the NFC Championship at DraftKings. San Francisco is now sixth at +800, trailing the Saints (+500), Seahawks (+500), Green Bay Packers (+700), Dallas Cowboys (+750) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+750).

The Packers are among the biggest movers following two impressive victories to open the season. Middle of the pack at +2800 to win the Super Bowl days before the season started, Green Bay now has the fifth-shortest odds at +1600 at DraftKings.

The Packers also strong favorites to win the NFC North at -155 ahead of the Chicago Bears (+250), Minnesota Vikings (+500) and Detroit Lions (+2000).

The NFC West remains the most competitive division throughout, with the Seahawks now the favorites at +175 ahead of the Rams (+275), 49ers (+300) and Cardinals (+350).
