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.

Below is the complete 2017 San Francisco 49ers schedule, which can also be found on our official schedule page.

San Francisco 49ers fans might hear Mac Jones' name called tomorrow night while their team is on the clock. The former Alabama quarterback may not be the most popular choice, but he is probably the prospect who head coach Kyle Shanahan had his eye on last month when the Niners traded up to No. 3 overall. "Sources believe that when the Niners traded up from No. 12 to No. 3 a month ago, they did so with Jones in mind," wrote ESPN's Jeremy Fowler and Dan Graziano. "And sources also say that 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan -- who ultimately gets to make the final decision here -- has preferred Jones to the

Michael Silver took to Twitter on Friday to share his thoughts on the San Francisco 49ers' looming quarterback decision. Last month, the team traded up to the No. 3 overall spot to acquire a future replacement for Jimmy Garoppolo, who has struggled to stay on the field during his time in Santa Clara. Silver notes that he has been repeatedly asked about the pick and the 49ers' thinking. While it is NFL Network's policy not to "tip picks," he does have some thoughts based on what he has heard from around the league. 1) As per NFL Network policy, I am not allowed to "tip picks"... and, in any case, this is not

When longtime 49ers beat reporter Matt Barrows of The Athletic makes a guess this close to the draft on which player the team will select at pick three, it's certainly worthy of attention. But, in this case, Barrows might not know more than most people when it comes to what the 49ers will do, even though the draft is six days away. Barrows made his most recent selection for the 49ers in a recent beat reporter mock draft published by The Athletic. His pick was quarterback Mac Jones of Alabama, which is not the result many 49ers fans are hoping to see. Barrows talked about his choice

Like most of us, NFL Network analyst and Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Kurt Warner doesn't know for sure which player the 49ers will choose when the time comes to reveal their selection at pick three of the 2021 NFL Draft. But he does have a personal preference for that pick, along with some thoughts on what factors the 49ers have been weighing throughout the decision-making process. Warner was a guest on The Rich Eisen Show Friday, days before he and the NFL Network will head to Cleveland, Ohio for this year's NFL Draft. Warner took several minutes to discuss what could happen at pick three, saying he believes the 49ers' decision could come down to what direction they'd like to take from current starter Jimmy Garoppolo. In particular, Warner thinks Alabama
