It was unclear which direction the 2023 NFL season was heading for the San Francisco 49ers just a month ago. After looking dominant during their first five games, Brock Purdy and company had dropped three straight games in were in danger of relinquishing their lead in the NFC West. It looked like teams around the league had finally figured out the key to stopping the young quarterback and the offensive attack that he is a part of, and the 49ers went from being Super Bowl favorites in Week 6 to having the third-shortest odds by Week 9.

But the team kicked things into another gear as they got healthier, and they now again look as dominant as they did in the early going. They have won four in a row after their Week 9 bye, including big wins against the Jaguars and Seahawks on the road. But perhaps their most impressive performance of the entire year came this past Sunday, as they throttled the Philadelphia Eagles in what was billed as a heavyweight battle between two NFC powerhouses. THe 49ers won 42-19, cementing their place as NFC contenders and once again becoming the overall favorite to win the Super Bowl.
According to BetOnline, San Francisco is the leader by a somewhat wide margin. They are currently sitting at +300 after Sunday’s action, with the next-closest designation being a +550 tie between the Chiefs and Eagles. Both of last season’s Super Bowl teams suffered tough losses on Sunday that have people questioning just how great they can be going down the stretch, and it will take some impressive wins the rest of the way to get the oddsmakers back on their sides.
