The San Francisco 49ers fell one win short from winning the Super Bowl and now have to go back to the drawing board to try to go on a deep playoff run again in 2024.

The good news is the majority of their best players will be returning next season and if the betting odds are any indication, we should expect them to be the top team in the NFC once again. FanDuel Sportsbook has recently released projected win totals for 2024 and the 49ers have the highest set number amongst NFC teams.

Let's dive into it.

2024 49ers win total

FanDuel Sportsbook has the 49ers' win total set at 11.5 for the 2024 season. The odds for the OVER are set at +100 which means there's a 50% implied probability the 49ers will win at least 12 games in the upcoming campaign.

No other team in the NFC has a projected win total of 11.5. The Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, Atlanta Falcons, and Detroit Lions are the next closest teams with their projected win totals set at 10.5.

The Baltimore Ravens and Kansas City Chiefs are the only two other teams in the league with a set win total of 11.5.

Not only do the 49ers have one of the best rosters in the NFL, but their 2024 schedule isn't as difficult as you might think. Their opponents had a combined win percentage of .505 in 2023. They get a few easy home games in the New England Patriots and Arizona Cardinals, and their road games against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Minnesota Vikings shouldn't prove to be much of a challenge for them either.

Unless disaster strikes the 49ers in 2024, expect them to be well poised for another Super Bowl run by the end of the season.
