Even before their matchup with the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football, the San Francisco 49ers are being listed as the current favorites to win this seasons Super Bowl.
International bookmaker, William Hill puts the Niners at 9/2 for their 11/19 Super Bowl Odds sheet.
Last week they listed at 4-1.
Behind San Francisco are Texans, Falcons, Patriots and Broncos at 11/2.
This list comes out before San Francisco hosts Chicago in a matchup that will feature both teams backup quarterbacks. Former Nevada Wolf Pack signal caller Colin Kaepernick will be starting in place of Alex Smith for the Niners, and former Raider QB Jason Campbell will be under center for the Bears in place of Jay Cutler.
Both teams starting quarterbacks are out due to concussions.
While the Niners are currently Super Bowl favorites for William Hill, their opponent is also very much in the championship hunt and is currently listed at 12-1.
