The San Francisco 49ers were one of the favorites to win Super Bowl XLVIII before the season kicked off and they remain one of the championship frontrunners heading into Wild Card weekend. Jim Harbaugh's squad is a third pick to win the Lombardi Trophy according to the latest 2014 Super Bowl Odds from Sportsbook.com, drawing a +800 listing ($100 wins $800). The 49ers, despite facing a road playoff slate, are also a second pick to win the NFC Championship Game at +450 odds. San Francisco is drawing a -145 money line is Sunday's showdown with the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.
The 49ers experienced some early hiccups, losing back to back games to the Seahawks and Colts in weeks two and three, but they roll into the playoffs as hot as any team in the league.
San Francisco has won six straight games, and while some of those wins came against struggling teams like the Redskins and Buccaneers, it also knocked off the Seattle and Arizona.
A win over Green Bay could result in a rubber match meeting with the top seeded Seahawks in Seattle. San Francisco has not fared well on the road against its division rival, though, losing four of its last five games at CenturyLink Field. Should the Niners and Saints both win this weekend, Colin Kaepernick and company will head to Carolina to face the Panthers, a team they lost to at Candlestick Park on November 10th.
