Preseason expectations are shaping up to be warranted for the San Francisco 49ers. For the second time in three years, the Niners are in the NFC Championship Game and are looking for another Super Bowl appearance. With their NFC Championship date set, where do the 49ers Super Bowl odds stand?
Their upset victory over the Green Bay Packers came by a 13-10 score. Deebo Samuel led the team with 142 total yards but a blocked punt touchdown in the fourth quarter turned the tide of the game. That was sealed by a Robbie Gould game-winner as time expired.
Below, we’ll look at the 49ers Super Bowl LVI odds, as well as how they stack up against each of their potential opponents next round.
Current Super Bowl LVI Odds
The San Francisco 49ers have +450 Super Bowl odds after the first day of the Divisional Round. The Chiefs lead the AFC, followed closely by the Bills, and we can expect the winner of that game to maintain the AFC leaders to win the Super Bowl.
The 49ers were projected as one of this season’s upstart teams in the preseason, boasting Super Bowl odds of +1200. Coming off a swath of injuries, San Francisco was back at full strength and one of oddsmakers’ favorite teams in the NFC.

Up Next: 49ers Vs. Rams
After the Rams beat the Buccaneers, the 49ers will be on the road in the conference championship game. The Niners are around field goal underdogs in their respective games.
The 49ers get a familiar foe. SF won both regular season matchups and Kyle Shanahan is 5-0 in the last five meetings against Sean McVay. Their last win came in Week 18– a comeback win that ultimately secured the 49ers’ spot in the playoffs. The adage of fighting fire with fire rings true in this matchup: Shanahan’s tendencies (pre-snap motion, heavy play action and outside zone) mirrors McVay’s, giving each team an easier scouting job against their own team.
