49ers open as 4-point home underdogs to Panthers

Apr 20, 2017 at 6:57 PM--


Those folks in Las Vegas don't waste any time. Not long after the release of the 2017 NFL schedule, odds for the opening week of games were released by the Westgate Las Vegas SportsBook. The San Francisco 49ers open up the season at home against the Carolina Panthers and they are already listed as 4-point underdogs, per Nick Wagoner of ESPN.


The 49ers have not lost an opener since 2010 and have not lost a home opener since 2008. They have won four straight home openers, including the past two, both of which took place on Monday nights. Of course, the 49ers went on to get blown out during their Week 2 road contests in 2015 and 2016. Those games took place on short weeks when the 49ers were forced by the schedule-makers to fly across the country and face teams coming off of playoff appearances – one of which was the Panthers in 2016.

Traveling across the country after Week 1 won't be an issue in 2017. The 49ers will stay on the West Coast but still have to face a tough opponent. They will travel north to Seattle to play the defending NFC West Champion Seahawks.

The 2017 season will the first for Kyle Shanahan as a head coach. In February, he became the 49ers' third new head coach in as many years.

49ers open as 4-point favorites in Week 3 matchup vs. Giants

Sep 21, 2020

The San Francisco 49ers (1-1) rebounded from their Week 1 loss with a 31-13 rout of the home-team New York Jets on Sunday. The victory came at a high cost, however, as several players left the field with injuries — with at least one believed to be long-term. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a high-ankle sprain while defensive linemen Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas, along with running backs Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman, sustained knee injuries. Bosa's injury is feared to be his ACL and will likely mean an end to his second NFL season. "It's heartbreaking," left tackle Trent Williams said after the game. "Nick is a cornerstone on this team,

The San Francisco 49ers have placed linebacker Mark Nzeocha on injured reserve, forcing him to miss at least the next three games. Nzeocha is dealing with a quad strain. The 49ers also officially opened the practice window for wide receiver Deebo Samuel. He has been recovering from the Jones fracture in his left foot that was suffered during a player-organized practice in June. "I know he's been chomping at the bit to get back," Shanahan said. "I know he's really made a lot of progress here in these last 14 days. I know he's pumped to practice. I know he's pumped to play." The 49ers will use Wednesday's through
