49ers expected to bounce back, open as Super Bowl LIX favorites

Although they came up just short this year, the San Francisco 49ers have been installed as the early favorites to win their sixth Super Bowl in franchise history in 2025.

San Francisco held a 19-16 lead with 1:53 remaining in regulation on Sunday, but it coughed it up, going on to fall 25-22 in overtime to the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII.

However, sportsbooks are banking on the 49ers to bounce back, with FanDuel giving them the shortest odds (+450) to go all the way next season. BetMGM has San Francisco listed at +500, and DraftKings has it at +550.

Of course, Kansas City isn’t far behind.

Super Bowl champions in three of the past five years, the Chiefs have the second-shortest odds of continuing their dynasty. Kansas City lands at +650 on DraftKings, +700 on BetMGM and +750 on FanDuel.

If the Niners were to take home next year’s Lombardi Trophy, they would be tied with the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers for the most Super Bowl victories in league history. The Chiefs will be gunning for their fifth title.

The Baltimore Ravens (+850 at BetMGM, +900 at FanDuel and DraftKings), who fell to Kansas City in this year’s AFC Championship Game, have the third-best odds of winning Super Bowl LIX.

Both BetMGM and FanDuel are offering the Lions and Bills at +1200. Detroit was eliminated by San Francisco in the NFC Championship Game and comes in at +1200 on DraftKings, which is also listing Buffalo at +950.

At +25000 at all three aforementioned books, the Carolina Panthers have the longest odds of winning the Super Bowl in 2025.

The Patriots (+20000 at BetMGM, +15000 at FanDuel, +10000 at DraftKings), Tennessee Titans (+15000, +15000, +15000) and Washington Commanders (+15000, +15000, +10000) also shouldn’t have their sights set on some hardware, per the books.
