San Francisco 49ers Season Expert Picks

Written by on August 30, 2016

After winning a paltry five games in head coach Jim Tomsula’s one-and-done campaign a year ago, the San Francisco 49ers are heading in a new direction under offensive-minded head coach Chip Kelly. Can the Niners get back in the postseason in 2016? Will they record a winning record in the difficult NFC West or will they simply bomb out again under Kelly, who ironically, is looking to rebound from his disastrous finish with the Philadelphia Eagles a year ago. Now, let’s find out if Kelly can lead the Niners back to the postseason in 2016. Get the updated NFL betting lines here.

San Francisco 49ers Season Expert Picks


2016 Regular Season Win Total Odds

Over/Under 5.5 Wins Analysis: Right now, I’m thinking the San Francisco 49ers are going to be a lot better than most people believe. Frisco wins home games  the Rams, Cowboys Bucs and Saints while getting road wins against Miami and Chicago to finish with six wins and narrowly top their Over/Under win total odds.

NFC West Division Odds

+2500 Analysis: With two legitimate Super Bowl title contenders residing in their own division in the form of the Seahawks and Cardinals, there’s absolutely no way the Niners win the NFC West in 2016. Hell, Frisco may not beat out L.A. for third place.

NFC Championship Odds

+4500 Analysis: I know the Niners’ +4500 return looks like it’s offering a ton of value, but since San Francisco stands absolutely no chance to win their conference crown, you might as well save your betting bucks here.

Super Bowl 51 Odds

+9000 Analysis: Where’s Joe Montana and Jerry Rice when you really need them? Hell, San Francisco would also need Roger Craig, Bill Walsh and the rest of their former legends to win Super Bowl 51 this coming season.
