San Francisco 49ers 2023 Regular Season Win Total Odds

San Francisco 49ers 2023 Regular Season Win Total

If the San Francisco 49ers had a quarterback they might have reached the Super Bowl last season. Their loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship was so bad the league made a rule change this offseason to address that situation. Unfortunately it doesn’t help the Niners now. And because of the QB situation there are some concerns about the Niners, who boast the highest win total on the NFL futures board at 11.5.

Despite using three different starting QBs the Niners won 13 games and for the second year in a row came up a win short of reaching the Super Bowl. All three QBs had their season end due to injury and two of them are hopeful to be back fighting for the starting job. The rest of the roster is littered with talent that should at least help the club win games. A healthy and productive QB, however, is what will take the Niners over their projected win total.

The biggest question entering the season has to do with the QBs. Trey Lance earned the starting gig ahead of Jimmy Garoppolo last year but we never really saw what he could do. Playing in a quagmire at Soldier Field in Week 1 didn’t help then Lance was injured the following week. The team wisely kept Jimmy G around and it paid off. However, when Garoppolo went down later in the year few knew what to expect. Drafted in the seventh round with the 262nd pick, Brock Purdy became a folk hero leading the Niners to five straight wins to close the regular season and a pair of playoff triumphs. However, in the NFC title game Purdy sustained an elbow injury that eventually needed surgery leaving journeyman Josh Johnson as the only option. When Johnson got concussed the Niners were out of options and the Eagles pounced 31-7.

Purdy and Lance are expected to be ready early in the season and the club acquired veterans Sam Darnold and Brandon Allen for depth. Teams can now have an emergency third-string QB available on game days in addition to their full roster. Having Christian McCaffrey for a full season will help take the load off the QB. But as we saw during his days in Carolina injuries are always a concern. With George Kittle, Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk don’t expect the Niners to completely abandon the passing game.

Success comes at a price and once again the coaching staff was raided. Demeco Ryans, who coordinated the NFL’s top ranked scoring and yardage unit in 2022 left for Houston. The talent is there to again be good, but schematically we could see changes affecting the overall production.

The Niners certainly are in a good spot to surpass the win total with the NFC West being kind of a mess. The Rams and Cardinals are trying to figure things out and Seattle was no match for SF last year. Still, the QB situation bothers me with both Lance and Purdy recovering from serious injuries and still unproven after that. Talent alone will likely get them a division title, but winning 12 games will be a stretch so I’m backing the UNDER.
