Why bet on LAR versus San Francisco?
This Rams team is much different than the one that imploded against San Francisco in NFL Week 18. Los Angeles not only dominated the Arizona Cardinals in their wild card match, but they beat the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the divisional round. The Rams pressured Tom Brady all day. On offense, Matthew Stafford easily beat a good Bucs’ defense. The Rams are flying high, which makes them the team to beat on Sunday.

San Francisco 49ers at Los Angeles Rams Final Betting Prediction
It’s tough to beat a team three times in a single NFL Season. But in this case, San Francisco looks like a solid play.
Forget the game in the Bay Area where SF spanked the Rams 31-10. The real game to check out is the Week 18 come from behind victory. In that game, Nick Bosa went out with a concussion.
All Jimmy Garoppolo did was rally the 49ers to a playoff berth with an overtime victory. Jimmy G. wasn’t even one-hundred percent in that game and the 49ers still beat Los Angeles.
So far, the Niners have proven they can handle a team with a great offense. San Francisco stomped the Dallas Cowboys in Big D, holding the highest scoring team in the NFL to 17 points. Then in the divisional round, SF held the Green Bay Packers to 10 points in a 13-10 win at Lambeau.
The 49ers are healthier on defense than they have been since before the season started. Jimmy G. is showing no signs of the thumb issue that plagued him in the last two weeks of the regular season and the Rams can’t possibly be feeling good about this game after almost blowing a 20-3 halftime lead to Brady and the Bucs.
San Francisco is an overlay at +3.5. But why bet against the spread when the 49ers should win this outright? Niners moneyline is the play.
