NFC West Odds, Predictions, Betting Picks 2024: 49ers to Win Third Division Title in a Row

  • The San Francisco 49ers are the heavy favorite to repeat as a NFC West division champion

  • The 49ers are also one of the favorites to win the 2024-25 Super Bowl

  • The Rams are second on the oddsboard to win the division and enter the year healthy

The 49ers just keep inching closer in their efforts to win the Super Bowl. After losing in the Conference Finals in 2022-2023, the 49ers followed that up with a loss in last years’ Super Bowl. They now enter this season as one of the favorites to win this year’s Super Bowl, boasting one of the best starting lineups in the league. Their window to do so is steadily closing as an extension to Brock Purdy’s contract looms large, no longer getting the benefit of their quarterback being on a cheap contract. 

Repeating as a division champion may not come as easy this time around as the Rams enter the year fully healthy and on the upswing after an impressive second half of the season last year. Matthew Stafford at full health plays as one of the better quarterbacks in the league, now coming into the year with two number one receivers after the emergence of Puka Nacua. The Seahawks' offense also remains dangerous while the Cardinals steadily improve after another productive NFL Draft.

NFC West Predictions and Favorites to Win 

The San Francisco 49ers may be the heavy favorite to repeat as a division champion, but it will not come easy as the rest of the division has steadily improved.

Los Angeles Rams (+360) at Caesars

Per oddsmakers, the Rams are the biggest threat to upset the 49ers for the division title. If it were not for early season injuries last year, then an argument could be made that the title race would have been a lot closer after seeing how the Rams looked in the second half of the season. Now back at full health, the Rams have all the tools to make the division title race interesting this time around.

With the emergence of Puka Nacua as another go-to option for Stafford to throw to, the Rams front office shifted their focus towards other holes on the roster. They beefed up the offensive line with the addition of stud guard Jonah Jackson, giving Stafford more protection to help keep him intact. On defense, the Rams attacked their secondary by bringing in star cornerback Tre’Davious White to help bolster their below average mark in Def Pass DVOA. Losing Aaron Donald to retirement hurts, but the Rams made an attempt to recoup his lost production in the pass rush by drafting edge rusher Jared Verse.

Seattle Seahawks (+750) at FanDuel

After Geno Smith exploded back onto the scene in 2022, opposing defenses were quick to bring him back down to reality after a lackluster 2023 campaign. The Seahawks still boast a lethal offense, arguably fielding the best receiver trio in football to pair with their one-two punch of Kenneth Walker and Zach Charbonnet in the backfield. 

The issue for the Seahawks this year is that they stayed relatively quiet in the offseason in terms of major additions to their roster. Their most notable moves came from re-signing stud defensive tackle Leonard Williams after trading for him back in October, pairing him with their first round pick defensive tackle Byron Murphy II. While their presence is poised to improve their near dead last mark in Def Rush DVOA, the Seahawks lack of coverage may continue to be a thorn in their side in their quest to win the division title.

Arizona Cardinals (+1300) at Caesars

It’s been a rough stretch for the Arizona Cardinals, but their rebuild may be accelerated with a healthy Kyler Murray back in the fold. Murray will also find himself with a true number one target in Marvin Harrison Jr for the first time in his career since DeAndre Hopkins, freeing up the rest of the offense to find production elsewhere with Harrison Jr commanding defensive attention. 

As for the defense, the Cardinals brought in cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting in free agency to help give their secondary a major boost in production, but he can not turn around a league worst coverage unit on his own. The Cardinals also drafted edge rusher Darius Robinson with their second first round pick in an attempt to bolster their pass rush. While improvement is expected, avoid the Cardinals in the division futures market as they are still far below the 49ers in terms of talent and depth.

Who Will Win the NFC West - My Pick 

San Francisco 49ers (-195) at FanDuel

After falling short of winning the Super Bowl two years in a row, oddsmakers believe this year may be the year for them to pull it off by pricing them with the Kansas City Chiefs as one of the favorites to win it all. They bring back a bulk of their continuity that led them to a deep run this year, including Brock Purdy, reigning Offensive Player of the Year Christian McCaffrey, Trent Williams, Deebo Samuel, and a majority of their defense.

One major name that still has uncertainty looming over him is star wideout Brandon Aiyuk as he has made the waves on news outlets by airing out his frustrations by demanding a trade. In anticipation of him leaving, the 49ers did use their first round pick on wide receiver Ricky Pearsall. Outside of Pearsall, the 49ers have been relatively quiet this offseason outside of replacing Arik Armstead with the Texans' Maliek Collins. With continuity all over, back the 49ers as a heavy favorite in their efforts to three peat as a division champion.

Who Won the NFC West in 2023/2024

The San Francisco 49ers won their second division title in a row in 2023-2024.

NFC West History

After a two year stretch in 2020-2021, the San Francisco 49ers have reclaimed their throne at the top of the NFC West. They are now poised to add more hardware to their trophy case as the heavy favorite to win their third title in a row in 2024, adding to their 22 total division titles. 

The Rams are the closest threat to upset the 49ers for the NFC West title, being the last team to do so back in 2021. The Seahawks are looking to get their 10th division title after winning it back in 2020. As for the Cardinals, they are still in a rebuild and may be a few years away from actually contending in the division since winning it back in 2015.

How to Choose the Best Sportsbook for Betting on the NFC West

Acquiring as many online sportsbooks as you can get is very important as it gives you the ability to line shop. Futures odds can drastically vary between sportsbooks as shown in the table below with the 49ers being as high as -225 at Caesars Sportsbook to win the NFC West and as low as -195 at FanDuel. That is a difference of $30 in tied up profit for a $100 bettor, saving you money in the long run by consistently taking the more favorable odds.

Another benefit of collecting sportsbooks is that each one has their own unique sign up bonus to give your bankroll a boost ahead of the start of the NFL season. BetMGM for example is giving new users up to $1,500 back in bonus bets should they lose their first wager with the WSN promo code WSNMGM.
