Vegas shows no love to 49ers in 2017 point spreads

“May the odds ever be in your favor” is the famous quote from Effie Trinket in the mythical Hunger Games trilogy, but it appears the San Francisco 49ers’ 2017 season is quite the opposite.

Cantor technology has released their official point spreads for the 2017 season, and if everything goes according to their predictions, it will be a long season in San Francisco. Ben Fawkes of ESPN published the odds for Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch’s first campaign, and the the 49ers are favored in just one game this season, a week 3 Thursday night matchup at home against the Los Angeles Rams. Cantor does not include odds for weed 17, due to the wide variance that comes with the final week of the season where many playoff teams are resting players and so many players are injured and unavailable.

The widest margin comes the week before that game against the Rams, as the 49ers will travel to Seattle and play the Seattle Seahawks as 13-point underdogs. The full list of spreads is available below:

Week 1

Panthers at 49ers (+4.5)

Week 2

49ers (+13) at Seahawks

Week 3 (Thursday)

Rams at 49ers (-1.5)

Week 4

49ers (+9) at Cardinals

Week 5

49ers (+9) at Colts

Week 6

49ers (+8) at Redskins

Week 7

Cowboys at 49ers (+8.5)

Week 8

49ers (+7.5) at Eagles

Week 9

Cardinals at 49ers (+3.5)

Week 10

Giants at 49ers (+4.5)

Week 11

BYE

Week 12

Seahawks at 49ers (+7.5)

Week 13

49ers (+4) at Bears

Week 14

49ers (+9) at Texans

Week 15

Titans at 49ers (+3)

Week 16

Jaguars at 49ers (+1)

With all of the roster turnover and the new faces in the front office, there is no question the 49ers will be hard pressed to earn wins next season, but San Francisco has made strong moves throughout this offseason, drafting top highly-rated prospects Solomon Thomas and Reuben Foster, along with signing proven contributors like Pierre Garcon.

Even with such a bleak outloook from the oddsmakers, there is no doubt 49er fans cannot wait for week 1 when Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers roll into town.
