Why bet on San Francisco versus Los Angeles Rams?

The 49ers are in the midst of a 2-game losing streak. Before deciding to go against SF in this, we must break down each loss. The game against Atlanta could have gone either way if not for San Fran mental errors.

In the game versus Kansas City, the Chiefs overwhelmed the Niners. Simply put, KC is the better team. 

Los Angeles may not be as good as SF. The 49ers already have a victory over the Rams this season. Also, the Niners won the Christian McCaffrey sweepstakes.

Why bet on Los Angeles Rams versus San Francisco?

Sean McVay may have missed out on trading for McCaffrey, but the Rams are still plenty good enough to turn the tables on their rivals. First, McVay will have a different game plan then the one he had in the first matchup.

Second, the Rams battle the 49ers a week after their bye. McVay has had an entire week to figure out a plan for revenge. Also, this happens at SoFi Stadium where the Rams are always tough to beat.

San Francisco 49ers at Los Angeles Rams Final Betting Prediction

Rams versus 49ers is a one-sided rivalry. Even though Los Angeles won the Super Bowl last season, the Rams struggled against the Niners.

In fact, Jimmy Garoppolo and his mates have covered in the last 6 versus the Rams. Almost as important is the fact the 49ers are 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 versus the NFC.

In addition, Christian McCaffrey will change how Kyle Shanahan calls plays. McCaffrey should take pressure off Jimmy G., Deebo Samuel, and Brandon Ayuik. 

If that happens, the 49ers’ offense will look much different on Sunday then it has in San Fran’s last two games. McVay is out to avenge the early season loss, but Shanahan has the stronger pieces on the chess board. The Niners win and cover. 

NFL Week 8 Pick: San Francisco 49ers -1.5
