49ers are heavy NFC West favorites heading into free agency

One of the first big pins of the NFL offseason is about to fall with the start of the free agency period. However, before the start of free agency, FanDuel Sportsbook released updated offs for NFL divisions, including the NFC West.

To no surprise, the San Francisco 49ers are heavy favorites in the NFC West at -220 coming off a run to the Super Bowl. The Los Angeles Rams, who punched a ticket to the playoffs last season, trail the 49ers at +420. The Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals round out the rest of the NFC West at +750 and +1100.

The 49ers have won the NFC West in back-to-back seasons, including three times since 20219. They lead the division with 22 division championships since 1967.

After coming up short in the Super Bowl, the 49ers will likely bring back most of their core around Brock Purdy, Christian McCaffrey, Fred Warner, Deebo Samuel and Trent Williams.

While free agency will help pain of better picture of what the NFC West will look like next season, it will likely take multiple high-end moves to knock the 49ers off as favorites in the division.
