49ers now have highest odds of claiming top pick in 2019 NFL Draft

By Admi
 The San Francisco 49ers 2018 season turned into a disaster starting with Jimmy Garoppolo’s torn ACL. The team’s hopeful franchise quarterback is done for the year , C.J. Beathard is taking his lumps, the team is losing more players to injury, and everything on both sides of the ball is a whole lot of inconsistent.The one upside to everything? The 49ers are staring at a high first round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Football Outsiders released their latest look at playoff and draft odds, and the 49ers have moved to the top of the leaderboard for the top pick in the draft. They have a 19.0 percent chance of claiming the top pick, and a 58.6 percent chance of claiming a top five pick. The Arizona Cardinals have the second highest odds for the top pick (16.9 percent), while the Buffalo Bills have the second highest odds for a top five pick (57.6 percent).A week ago, the 49ers had the third best odds , at 9.9 percent. When you lose to the winless Arizona Cardinals at home, your draft odds are going to improve considerably. Things don’t get easier anytime soon. They travel to the Green Bay Packers, host the Los Angeles Rams, travel to face the Cardinals, then host the Oakland Raiders and New York Giants before their Week 11 bye.Previously, that Cardinals, Raiders Youth Weston Richburg Jersey , Giants stretch seemed like a decent shot at a 3-0 stretch. Now, all bets are off. I think the 49ers come out of that stretch 2-1, but after Sunday’s loss, who knows what might happen. Can anybody say with any confidence that the team will win any of their remaining games? I think they’ll beat the Raiders and Giants, and grab one or two other wins, but I can’t say I’m particularly confident about that prediction. There will be some competitive games the rest of the way, but which ones they are is not something I am comfortable predicting.So Cheap Fred Warner Jersey , as bad as things are, I suppose there is some excitement to be had in considering what the team could do with a top five pick — or maybe even the top pick in the draft. We are still a little under three weeks away from Super Bowl 53, but that won’t stop us from looking ahead to Super Bowl 54! On Tuesday, the Westgate SuperBook released the first odds for the 2020 Super Bowl in Miami. Plenty will change in the coming weeks and months, but for now, the SuperBook sees higher expectations for the 49ers.The SuperBook has installed the 49ers at 40/1 odds, alongside the New York Giants and Carolina Panthers. There are 11 teams with longer odds than those three. The Los Angeles Rams are installed as the early favorite Youth Brock Coyle Jersey , at 6/1 odds, followed by the Kansas City Chiefs (7/1), New Orleans Saints (8/1), and New England Patriots (10/1). In the NFC West, the Rams are just ahead of the 49ers at 30/1, while the Cardinals are near the bottom at 100/1.A year ago just prior to Super Bowl 52, the 49ers were installed at 20/1 odds for Super Bowl 53. Their odds adjusted slightly up and down over the course of the offseason and into the regular season Youth Arik Armstead Jersey , and then nose-dived after Jimmy Garoppolo tore his ACL.Super Bowl futures are meant to draw as even a distribution as possible to prevent a sportsbook from being on the hook too badly for one team. I think 49ers odds will get better heading into training camp, but oddsmakers and the public want to see how Garoppolo responds when he returns to practice and then game action. And of course, this also depends on how the rest of the offseason goes for the 49ers. They have serious draft picks and a lot of cap space, which could shake this roster up considerably. And of course, the Antonio Brown situation will remain on the radar. Plenty could shake up these odds.
