(The Spread) – After adding Nnamdi Asomugha in efforts to beef up their secondary, the 49ers’ 2014 Super Bowl odds have improved.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the 49ers are 6/1 to win next year’s Super Bowl after they were listed 13/2 a week ago. Asomugha, formerly of the Eagles, was signed to a one-year contract on April 2.
