San Francisco 49ers football betting odds

 All eyes on young quarterback Alex Smith as the San Francisco 49ers enter the 2007 football season.

San Francisco 49ers football betting odds Regardless of how you view the San Francisco 49ers, 2006 football season was a real improvement for the team. Although the Niners finished last season with a 7-9 record, it was much better than the total of six wins in the previous two years combined. The team remains far from being a favorite to win the division, but the young quarterback Alex Smith has shown maturity and playmaking skills and we may see quite a game from the 49ers this season.

 The departure of Norv Turner to the Chargers sure was a hit on the San Francisco 49ers, hopefully the new offensive coordinator Jim Hostler will be able to "cultivate" Alex Smith and enable his professional growth. Ashley Lelie and Darrel Jackson arrived in the offseason to the Niners, TE Vernon Davis is back with the team after his broken leg kept him on the sidelines most of the 2006 season and Frank Gore remains one of the best all-around offensive weapon in the league. The acquisition of Tully Banta-Cain and Aubrayo Franklin beefed up the San Francisco 49ers defense, which ranked 26th last football season.

 The last two preseason games did not go the Niners way, the San Diego Chargers built up a 10-point lead and held on for a 16-13 win over the San Francisco 49ers. Shaun Hill hooked up on a 21-yard pass to Zach Hilton for the 49ers' touchdown, and Joe Nedney kicked two field goals in a losing effort. And in the prior football preseason game, the San Francisco 49ers scored 15 points in the fourth quarter during the third week of preseason action, but they fell 31-28 to the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field. Trent Dilfer was 9-for-12 for 99 yards and two touchdowns, while Jason Hill caught a nine-yard pass for a major for the 49ers.
