San Francisco 49ers odds make them a massive underdog
Things haven’t gone well for the 2019 NFC Champions. After Week 5, the San Francisco 49ers are 2-3. Although being 2-3 doesn’t stop the Niners from going to the playoffs, the fact that the only two teams they’ve beaten are the New York Jets and New York Giants is a sign that the playoffs may be a longshot.
San Francisco has lost to Arizona, the Philadelphia Eagles, and most surprisingly, the Miami Dolphins. Those are three losses to teams that are a combined 6-8-1. That’s not good. The two teams San Francisco beat, the awful New York teams, are a combined 0-10.
What’s keeping the 49ers from the same success they had last season? It’s difficult to say. The defense had played well up until Ryan Fitzpatrick torched them for 350 yards and 3 touchdowns. The Fins blasted San Francisco 43-17.
Right now, the Niners aren’t playing well in any phase of the game. Almost as important, coach Kyle Shanahan doesn’t seem to know how to get his players motivated enough to turn things around. We shall see what happens, but, at least heading into Week 6, the San Francisco 49ers are a shell of the team that had the Chiefs on the ropes in the 2020 Super Bowl.
KC Chiefs, Baltimore Ravens, and Seattle Seahawks become underlays
NFL analysts appear to be in love with the Seattle Seahawks. It makes some sense. The Seahawks average 33.8 points per game, ranking second in the NFL. They’ve also gone undefeated, but before anointing the Seahawks this year’s Super Bowl winners, we must address two glaring issues.
First, we don’t know how good Seattle really is. They’ve beaten the Atlanta Falcons, Dallas Cowboys, Miami, Minnesota, and New England. The Seahawks struggled against the Cowboys and Vikings. Second, Seattle allows 370.4 passing and 471.2 total yards per. Both those stats rank last in the league. Games against Arizona, Buffalo and the Rams happen in the next four weeks. The Hawks could be a definite play against by them.
Kansas City offers +400 to win the Super Bowl. Although they should remain the favorite, the odds are much too low. The Chiefs showed in their loss to the Raiders that they’re not unbeatable. The Ravens at +550 are also an underlay. Baltimore is a good team. They’re not a +550 to win the Super Bowl “good”, though.
Saints, Rams, and Bills are this week’s top overlays to win the Super Bowl
Although the New Orleans required overtime to beat the L.A. Chargers, the Saints are the most penalized team in the NFL. If coach Sean Payton and defensive coordinator Dennis Allen can get the defense to play with discipline, the Saints become a massive overlay at +1200.
The Rams and Bills both offer overlay odds. Buffalo quarterback Josh Allen is posting stats that make him an MVP candidate. The Rams are solid across the board. Quarterback Jared Goff is the 2020 version of Troy Aikman. Goff won’t get the stats, but he doesn’t make many mistakes.
Week 6 promises to again change Super Bowl odds even further. Have a great rest of your week and weekend!
