Best Odds on the San Francisco 49ers

With the convincing failures of Prop 26 and Prop 27 in the November 2022 election, California sports betting won’t launch until 2025 at the earliest.

That’s not great news for fans of the NFL, and San Francisco 49ers fans, in particular.

Even though sports betting hasn’t arrived in California yet, we’re here to prepare you for the eventual launch, so we’ll discuss the San Francisco 49ers odds, bets you can take on 49ers games, where to find the best odds, and much more.

Where Can You Bet on the San Francisco 49ers?

Betting on the San Francisco 49ers is currently illegal in California. That could have changed if Prop 26 or Prop 27 had passed.

Retail Sportsbooks

Voting on Prop 26 would have benefited casinos and racetracks, as numerous tribal casinos and the four privately owned racetracks would have had a chance to apply for sports betting licenses. Tribal casinos were heavily in favor of this, as it would have also allowed them to add more games to their floors, including craps and roulette.

Online Sportsbooks

On the other hand, Prop 27 would have legalized online betting and allowed tribal casinos to partner with some of the biggest online betting companies. Licenses would have be limited to companies that had already established operations in at least 10 states. Only several betting giants met this requirement, including DraftKings, FanDuel, BetMGM, Caesars, WynnBET, and a few more.

San Francisco 49ers Betting News and Updates

How San Francisco Betting Odds Are Calculated

The odds for each NFL game are calculated based on a number of factors, but primarily on team performance and injuries.

Unless the oddsmakers feel that the competing teams are evenly matched, each game will have a favorite and an underdog. The favorites get negative (-) odds, and the underdogs get positive (+) odds. This is also applied to other bets; the bigger the negative value, the higher the chance of that bet succeeding. Meanwhile, the higher the positive value, the lower the chance of success.

Negative odds show a number telling you how much you need to wager to get a $100 profit. For instance, -350 odds mean you must wager $350 to earn $100. On the other hand, the number shown with a plus sign tells you the potential profit for a $100 bet. Staking $100 on +200 odds will win you $200. Of course, you can always bet more or less.

Every operator has its own oddsmakers, so the numbers may differ from one sportsbook to the other. That’s why you should do a little comparison before betting online and always try to find the best 49ers odds in California.

Before we dive into the 49ers odds to win the Super Bowl, let’s see how betting odds work for their individual games.

San Francisco 49ers Moneyline Odds

When betting on the moneyline, you’ll be merely guessing the winning side, regardless of the final score and winning margin. Remember, the negative odds are always next to the team favored to win. Here are what the 49ers vs. Rams odds looked like for the moneyline market at DraftKings a few hours before kickoff:

  • Los Angeles Rams +110
  • San Francisco 49ers -130

San Francisco 49ers Point Spread

The winning margin does matter when betting on the point spread. In this bet, you’ll be guessing which side will “cover the spread” by winning or losing up to a certain amount of points. Here’s what it looked like for the Rams vs. 49ers game:

  • Los Angeles Rams -110 (+1.5)
  • San Francisco 49ers -110 (-1.5)

As you can see, the playing field is now even since the underdogs (Rams) received 1.5 points. To cover the spread, they must win outright or lose by one point. Meanwhile, the 49ers score is reduced by 1.5 points, so they must win by at least two to cover their spread.

San Francisco 49ers Futures Odds

If you’re not comfortable with betting on San Francisco to win the next Super Bowl, you can play it safe and put money on the team to win the division title, make the playoffs, or win the NFC. Let’s look at some of the 49ers odds for their season-long performance.

49ers Super Bowl odds+1300
To win the NFC+500
To win the NFC West Division-175
49ers Over/Under 10Over (-110), Under (-110)

Odds are from DraftKings on Nov. 2, 2022.

The odds we show you here are prone to changes. Every week, the futures odds on the 49ers are likely to shift depending on the team’s performance.

San Francisco 49ers Prop Bets

Each 49ers game is full of proposition bets (called props, for short), a group of wagers associated with various occurrences.

For instance, you can bet on whether the game will go into overtime or how many touchdowns the team will have. The more popular props revolve around individual players and are usually displayed in an Over/Under format. Player props include things like touchdown scorer, player passing yards, rushing yards, receiving yards, tackles, FGs made, and more.

Since there are so many props to choose from, oddsmakers can often be off on a few of them, so if you’ve analyzed a particular segment of the game enough, this is where you’ll find some of the best odds at California sportsbooks.

How to Bet on San Francisco 49ers in California

Depending on which proposition gets voted in, you’ll be able to bet either online or in person. To bet at retail sportsbooks, you must fill out a betting slip at a kiosk or a cashier window. Bring your ID card if you need to prove that you’re of legal betting age.

  2. Type in your login credentials (email + password) and provide the necessary ID details, including full name, address, birthday, last four digits of your SSN, and more.
  3. Once your account is ready, go to the deposit page to transfer money. You can use cards, e-wallets, or other online banking methods.
  4. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to claim California sports betting bonuses for extra betting credits, usually formed as free bets.
  5. Choose NFL from the sportsbook’s menu and find the list of upcoming NFL games.
  6. Go to the SF 49ers game and click/tap on any bet to add it to your bet slip.
  7. Once you’re done making bets, complete your bet slip by typing in your stake and confirming the wager.

How to Bet on the NFL in California

Other season-long bets include predicting the number of wins for each team, which teams will make the playoffs, what conference or division the winning team will come from, which two teams will meet at the Super Bowl, and more.
