How do I bet the 49ers Spread?
Betting the San Francisco 49ers against the spread is easy! Let's imagine San Francisco is a -6.5 home favorite tonight. The number, -6.5, means the 49ers needs to win the game by a touchdown to win your bet. If their opponent who is a +6.5 road underdog either wins the game or loses by six points or fewer, your bet would lose.
How do I bet the 49ers Over-Under?
Another popular bet to make is the San Francisco 49ers game total. Let's imagine the 49ers are playing tonight and the total is 43.5 points. You can simply bet over 43.5 points or under 43.5 points. So if you think San Francisco and their opponent will score a lot of points, you'd need 44 total points scored to win your bet. If you think the 49ers will have a bad game, you'd need both teams to score 43 points or less.
How do I bet the 49ers Moneyline?
Betting the San Francisco 49ers moneyline means you expect the 49ers will win the game outright. Using the example above, if San Francisco is a -6.5 point favorite, their moneyline odds would be -280 and their opponent would be +230.
This means you would have to bet $280 on San Francisco to win $100. If you wanted to bet against the 49ers, you would win $230 if you bet $100 on their opponent.
How do I bet San Francisco 49ers Props?
There are many types of prop bets, but here, we'll only focus on team props and player props.
How do I bet San Francisco 49ers Futures
San Francisco futures bets are a fun way to make long-term bets. For example, before the season starts you can bet over or under 49ers season win total or bet on the San Francisco 49ers to win the Super Bowl, conference title, or division.
The biggest drawback to betting futures is having your bankroll tied up for long periods of time, but the payouts can be significant.
How do I bet the 49ers in-game
How do I read 49ers betting lines?
Betting sports looks more complicated than it actually is. You will see odds listed like 49ers -6.5 (-110). The -6.5 portion means San Francisco is favored and needs to win by seven points to cover the spread so you can cash your ticket. The -110 portion is the cost of the wager. When it's negative, that means you need to bet $1.10 to win $1.00. If the number positive, like +110, it means for every $1.00 you bet, you win $1.10.
You may also see things like San Francisco 49ers 53.5 (-110). The 53.5 is a reference to the total. Choose if you think more or less than 53.5 points will be scored. Similar to the spread, you'll need to wager $1.10 to win $1.00.
Sometimes the betting board will have moneyline odds like 49ers -250. This is a straight bet to win the game. For this bet, you'll need to bet $2.50 to win $1.00.
What does 49ers +150 mean?
This means if you bet $100 on San Francisco and they win the game, you will win $150.
What does 49ers -150 mean?
This means if you bet $150 on San Francisco and they win the game, you will win $100.
How do 49ers odds work?
Timing is everything in sports betting. Sportsbooks provide betting odds on games so bettors can make wagers on them. If San Francisco played on Sunday, most sportsbooks will post odds for their next game on Monday.
Once the market opens, bookmakers start taking bets on the next 49ers game. It's important to understand that bookmakers need to minimize their risk (also called exposure) on each game. The books will try to get a balanced amount of money on both the 49ers and their opponent.
Let's imagine the San Francisco 49ers open as -4.5 favorites on Monday morning, but on Wednesday an important player like the quarterback is put on the injury list. Because of the injury news, the sportsbook may lower the odds to 49ers -1.5.
Bettors who bet San Francisco -4.5 early in the week are stuck with a bad "off-market" number. Likewise, bettors who bet the opponent +4.5 now have a good number.
Learning how betting markets move and shift with news and information is what sets apart the professional gamblers from the average recreational bettor.
