Here are the NFL Futures bets we're throwing down for the NFC West ⏬


Arizona Cardinals

NFL Week 1 Matchup: Cardinals vs. Titans

Super Bowl 2021 Win Probability: 2.3%

Super Bowl 2021 Odds: +4400 (FanDuel)

The Cards finished last season with an 8-8 record, failing to finish in a playoff position despite holding three pro bowlers in Kyler Murray, DeAndre Hopkins and Budda Baker.

We've got them improving in 2021, in large part due to Kyler and D-Hop, with Kyler set to go to another level both with his passing and rushing. 

Dimers' Suggested Bet:
Kyler Murray OVER 675.5 rush yards (-110)

Los Angeles Rams

NFL Week 1 Matchup: Bears vs. Rams

Super Bowl 2021 Win Probability: 5.7%

Super Bowl 2021 Odds: +1400 (FanDuel)

The Rams finished 2020 with an impressive 10 wins and with one extra game on the schedule, we'll take an Over Under bet on them to go OVER their 10.5 wins line and get at least 11 dubs.

For some more futures value on the Rams, Aaron Donald at +500 to win the Defensive Player of the Year for the fourth time in his career and second year in a row looks like an extremely solid bet.

Dimers' Suggested Bets:
OVER 10.5 total wins (+125)
Aaron Donald: Defensive Player of the Year (+500)

Seattle Seahawks

NFL Week 1 Matchup: Seahawks vs. Colts

Super Bowl 2021 Win Probability: 3.1%

Super Bowl 2021 Odds: +2500 (BetMGM)

Next up we have Russell Wilson and his Seattle Seahawks. After starting last season HOT and making our futures MVP pick look like a sure thing, the Seahawks fell away to finish (a still extremely impressive) 12-4 before losing in the Wild Card round of the playoffs to the above-mentioned Rams.

With improvement set to come from the Cardinals, Rams and the in particular the 49ers, the plus money odds on offer for Seattle to miss the NFL playoffs, is a good strategy.

Dimers' Suggested Bet:
To miss the playoffs (+108)

San Francisco 49ers

NFL Week 1 Matchup: 49ers vs. Lions

Super Bowl 2021 Win Probability: 5.3%

Super Bowl 2021 Odds: +1400 (DraftKings)

The Niners are back! Or at least we think they will be. After a season from hell, the 49ers win total for this year is set at 10.5 with most sportsbooks.

But instead of taking them to go Over, we're backing in George Kittle to have a career year and get into the endzone for 6+ touchdowns from NFL Week 1 onwards. At plus money, this is an extremely fun one to track all year with the added possibility of it paying out early if he has a hot start to the season!

Dimers' Suggested Bet:
George Kittle OVER 5.5 TDs (+110)
