Next season, the 49ers won’t be losers anymore, experts say. But they won’t be winners, either.
Las Vegas oddsmakers recently predicted how many games each NFL team will win next season. For the 49ers, the oddsmakers predicted eight wins and eight losses, which would be an improvement. The 49ers haven’t won more than six games in a season since 2014.
The NFL has not yet released the 49ers’ schedule — it will come out later this month. But the 49ers already know who their opponents will be.
At home, the 49ers will play (in no particular order) the Atlanta Falcons, the Carolina Panthers, the Cleveland Browns, the Green Bay Packers, the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Arizona Cardinals, the Seattle Seahawks and the Los Angeles Rams.
On the road, the 49ers will play the Baltimore Ravens, the Cincinnati Bengals, the New Orleans Saints, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Washington Redskins, the Cardinals, the Seahawks and the Rams.
Of those 16 games, here are eight which oddsmakers probably expect the 49ers to win.
