NFL Betting: Now What Happens for the San Francisco 49ers?

San Francisco 49ers NewsThe NFL betting experts had to admit that a lot of interesting things happened because of Super Bowl XLVII. Baltimore Ravens’ linebacker Ray Lewis retires as a two-time Super Bowl champion and quarterback Joe Flacco is about to get the respect he has been looking for in the form of a big contract. Baltimore head coach John Harbaugh won the first ever NFL playoff game where two brothers faced off as head coaches, and Jacoby Jones is getting a lot of press the day after the big game. But what about the San Francisco 49ers?

The betting sites are having a hard time denying the fact that second-year quarterback Colin Kaepernick cracked under the pressure in the first half and almost completely handed the Super Bowl to the Baltimore Ravens. That is not to say that the Ravens did not earn the victory, because Baltimore is a deserving Super Bowl champion. But things are a lot easier when the opposing quarterback is throwing key interceptions and making really bad decisions at critical moments in the game. The Ravens didn’t need the help in the first half, but the team was more than happy to take it.

 

Now the sports betting experts are left wondering if Kaepernick grew up enough in the second half of Super Bowl XLVII to get head coach Jim Harbaugh off the hook for sitting Alex Smith and putting Kaepernick into the starting lineup. It could be argued that the San Francisco 49ers would not have been in that Super Bowl had it not been for Kapernick and the way he plays the game. It should also be noted that there is a very good chance that head coach Jim Harbaugh will have many more successful years in San Francisco. He may even get the team back to the big show and win it all. But how?

A sportsbook review of the San Francisco 49ers shows that a majority of the team will be returning for the 2013 season. The biggest hole to fill will be at backup quarterback as Alex Smith is expected to move on to a team where he will get the chance to be a starter again and redeem himself. That backup quarterback spot is critical because Kaepernick is not out of the woods yet. NFL defensive coordinators have now seen what he can do and the Baltimore Ravens had an answer for Kaepernick in the Super Bowl. If Kaepernick wants success in 2013, he is going to have to adapt his game and evolve.

The San Francisco 49ers is a young football team that has one of the best defensive units in the league. For the next few years, the fans in the Bay Area can expect the 49ers to be a competitive, playoff team. But it will be the development of Colin Kaepernick which will determine whether this team becomes a champion or not.
