The NFC West is a deep and talented division where even the long-shot Arizona Cardinals are just 7-1 to win the division. It’s going to be one of the best divisions in football for years to come, and the defending champion San Francisco 49ers have their work cut out for them to justify the oddsmakers -106 faith in them.
Last season, 49ers should have won the Super Bowl (sorry KC fans) and it would not shock me if the team representing the NFC in the Super Bowl comes out of this division again. The 49ers are the favorites to win the division at -106 but Seattle and the LA Rams could also turn a profit for bettors.
San Francisco 49ers (-106)
The San Francisco 49ers enter the 2020 season as the favorites to win the NFC. Kyle Shanahan heads into his third season at the helm, and this is his best team by far – on paper.
Jimmy Garrapolo will look to continue to develop into an elite quarterback. He will have rookie WR Brandon Aiyuk to work with, who projects as one of the best field stretchers coming out of the draft.
The best defense in the NFL in 2019 is running it back in 2020, with the addition of one new starter in first-round pick Javon Kinlaw. He is one of my favorite prospects coming out of the draft.
