San Francisco 49ers 2023-24 NFL Season Recap

San Francisco 49ers NFL Season Recap

San Francisco 49ers NFL Betting Online

Though the San Francisco 49ers alternated with the Philadelphia Eagles as the odds-on favorites to win the NFC title in the offseason, it was Kyle Shanahan’s troops that entered Week 1 the +350 favorites at the online sportsbook. Through Week 5 after the team won its first five games and stood 4-1 versus the closing NFL odds, the rate of return fell to +170. Futures bettors had a brief window to get more bang for their buck after the Niners dropped three straight to the Browns, Vikings, and Bengals, but the offering only climbed as high as +273. From that point forward, they got as high as +228 and as low as +115 until it plummeted all the way down to -110 after going into the desert and defeating the Arizona Cardinals 45-29 in an entertaining Week 15 shootout.

Entering the playoffs, the 49ers were the -120 chalk to punch a ticket to Super Bowl LVIII. San Fran’s rate of return moved to -125 following the Wild Card Round. After coming back to defeat the Green Bay Packers in the division round, they moved to -186 before fattening up to -295 heading into the NFC title game against the Detroit Lions. Bottom line, the San Francisco 49ers were without a doubt the stone cold nuts to represent the conference in the big game right from Week 1 evidenced by logging 14-5 SU and 9-10 ATS records heading into LVIII.

Unfortunately for diehard fans of the franchise and those that laid the points, the resume achieved heading into the big game wasn’t enough to get revenge over the Kansas City Chiefs who came back to oust them in LIV as well. Even after holding a 10-0 first quarter lead, the Niners left the door open for a Kansas City comeback due to turnovers, horrific execution on third down (3/12), and a gross inability of preventing Patrick Mahomes from killing the defense with both his arm and legs. After settling for a field goal in the overtime session, Niners fans and backers knew in their heart of hearts that the team wouldn’t be hoisting the Lombardi Trophy come the game’s conclusion.

Always a brides maid and never a bride; no doubt a saying that describes the Niners to a T right now with the franchise’s last four exits from the postseason reading like this: Lost Super Bowl, Lost NFC Title Game, Lost NFC Title Game, Lost Super Bowl. That’s been the M.O. of the squad dating as far back as 2011 with it suffering the same fates through 2013. Regardless of whether it’s been Shanahan or Jim Harbaugh calling the shots in Silicon Valley, the 49ers still haven’t figured out how to hit that next gear to bring home the bacon.

Regardless of how the conclusion of the 2023-24 NFL betting season ultimately played out, it was still a very successful campaign by the Bay. San Francisco’s offense rated out as the second-best unit in the league ranked top-5 in both passing and rushing offense with Brock Purdy cementing himself as more than capable and Christian McCaffrey robbed of MVP consideration even after going off for 2,000+ scrimmage yards and 21 total touchdowns. Their combined efforts took home some hardware in the forms of the AP Offensive Player of the Year Award, Jim Brown Award, and FedEx Air and Ground Players of the Year. The other side of the ball presented a top-10 unit that stonewalled opposing ground games (#3) but did have issues against the pass (#14); a problem area that’ll most definitely be rectified by upper management in the offseason.

San Francisco 49ers 2024 Offseason

This is a team that’s won no less than 10 games in four of the last five seasons. The front office gets the benefit of paying Purdy “Mr. Irrelevant” money for another season and gets pretty much every high-end contributor back for the 2024-25 NFL betting season which includes WR Brandon Aiyuk, DE Nick Bosa, FB Kyle Juszczyk, TE George Kittle, RB Christian McCaffrey, WR Deebo Samuel, CB Charvarius Ward, LB Fred Warner and LT Trent Williams. While the salary cap is slightly over budget, there are plenty of moves GM John Lynch can make to shore up the situation.

With 11 picks in the 2024 NFL Draft which includes the 31st pick in the first round and first in the third round, San Francisco will more than likely be looking to shore up both lines due to the likely defections set to occur in the offseason. Either way, a bulk of the additions likely won’t make impacts their rookie seasons as loaded the roster is evidenced by the 49ers (+600) only sitting behind the Kansas City Chiefs (+500) on the current odds to win Super Bowl LIX.

Born in 1946 as members of the All-American Football Conference, the San Francisco 49ers have a rich history that has earned them a spot among the NFL’s legacy franchises.

The 49ers won the last AAFC championship in 1949 before the league merged into the NFL. From 1950 through 1969, the 49ers made the playoffs only one time.

From 1970 through 1972, the 49ers won the NFC West three consecutive seasons and made the NFC championship game twice. Quarterback John Brodie and wide receiver Gene Washington starred for those teams.

In 1981 the 49ers forged their first dynasty. Bill Walsh led them to three Super Bowl championships from 1981 through 1988. And the team he built won another one under George Seifert the year after Walsh retired. Also, Seifert won the franchise’s final Super Bowl in 1994. San Francisco missed the playoffs only once, from 1983 through 1998.

Since 2012 the 49ers have made two more Super Bowls, losing each time.

A great and proud lineage of players has lit up the 49ers' marquee. Joe Montana, Steve Young, Jerry Rice, Roger Craig, Ronnie Lott, and Dwight Clark are just some of the great 49ers legends.
