49ers tied for second best odds to win Super Bowl LV after loss to Chiefs

Feb 2, 2020 at 8:28 PM--


Those betting money on the San Francisco 49ers to win Super Bowl LIV ultimately lost it, as the Niners suffered their second NFL championship loss in franchise history by losing 31-20 to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.

And the Niners aren't favorites to win Super Bowl LV a year from tonight, either. But they're in pretty good position regardless.

Shortly after the game's conclusion, Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook (h/t Wager Talk News) released early odds for the winners of the Super Bowl in 2021. Perhaps not surprisingly, the Chiefs are favorites to repeat with odds coming in at 5/1. The 49ers and Baltimore Ravens are both tied for second-best odds at 8/1, while the the New England Patriots are at 12/1 and the New Orleans Saints sit at 14/1.

The Washington Redskins, meanwhile, hold the longest odds at 200/1.

Naturally, that won't ease any 49ers fans' nerves after the crushing loss at the hands of quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs. But considering the Niners were once at 25/1 odds to win Super Bowl LIV, one can at least suggest head coach Kyle Shanahan's squad exceeded the sports books' expectations.

Another hat tip to KNBR 680 for the find.

49ers 'starving' for Super Bowl win, say George Kittle and Trent Williams

The San Francisco 49ers held a light practice on Wednesday. According to tight end George Kittle, you probably couldn't tell by how he and his teammates were flying around. The 49ers are eager to get to Sunday and are doing everything they can to ensure they are sufficiently prepared for their NFC Championship Game matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. One more win sets the stage. During the 2019 season, the 49ers just missed their opportunity to earn the franchise's sixth Lombardi trophy. Here they are again, on the doorstep of another chance to redeem that heartbreaking loss. "It's what you dreamt about since you were a kid," Kittle told reporters on Thursday. "You dream about it when you're in high school and college. You dream about it when you're in the

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo says Super Bowl return 'still up in the air'

By David Bonilla
Jan 27

The San Francisco 49ers have officially ruled out quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for this weekend's NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles. That wasn't unexpected. The chances of the former starter suiting up for Sunday's playoff bout, backing up rookie Brock Purdy, were slim. "Yeah, it's just been an outside chance the whole time, and that was still an outside chance," head coach Kyle Shanahan said Thursday, before that outside chance turned into no chance. The 49ers never placed Garoppolo on injured reserve, leaving the door open for a playoff return. However, we are now down to just one more game as a possibility—Super



49ers' Fred Warner on potentially winning a Super Bowl: "It would mean everything"

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers are a win away from returning to the Super Bowl. The team got there during the 2019 season but failed to hold onto a lead over the Kansas City Chiefs. Now, they have an opportunity to make amends for that heartbreaking defeat. Fred Warner was on that last Super Bowl team. It was the linebacker's second year in the NFL. Now, three years later, Warner and the 49ers are on the cusp of another trip to the big game. So what would winning in his second trip mean to the All-Pro defender? "It would mean everything, seriously," Warner recently told Rich Eisen. "We've been there. We've been to the NFC Championship Game three out of the last four years. I've been to the Super Bowl. And when you go so early in your career, I don't think you
