Why the L.A. Rams are a good bet +6?

No one can argue that the Dallas Cowboys dominated the L.A. Rams in Week 15. However, the Rams can bounce back versus San Francisco. One of the reasons Los Angeles played so poorly had to do with this game in Week 16. Los Angeles looked ahead. It cost them. Putting a dent into their rival’s chances of winning the division could make up for that.

Why the San Francisco 49ers are a good bet -6?

San Francisco beat the New Orleans Saints in Week 14. They were due for a bounce in Week 15. Atlanta got to San Francisco, but the 49ers had a chance to win that game. No worries. The next two weeks are much more important. San Francisco’s quest for the NFC West title and home-field starts with a victory over the Rams. San Francisco beat LAR 20-7 in Week 3. Why would Saturday’s matchup be any different?

Rams vs 49ers Final NFL Betting Analysis

Los Angeles must win their next 2 games and hope the Minnesota Vikings lose their next 2 games. That’s the only way the L.A. Rams can stamp their playoff ticket. The Rams can’t worry about what Minnesota does versus Green Bay on Sunday.

In a way, that should help Rams’ backers. Los Angeles had played well before the Cowboys torched their defense for 44 points in Week 15. L.A. beat Seattle 28-12 only a week before. In Week 13, they dominated Arizona 34-7.

They also have an advantage against the 49ers. Drew Brees beat-up San Francisco’s secondary 2 weeks ago. Last Sunday, Atlanta’s Matt Ryan torched the Niners. Jared Goff should play. If he does, he’ll have all 3 of his top wide receivers: Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, and Brandin Cooks, at his disposal.

The Rams have a big shot on the moneyline here. Back Los Angeles to add to what could turn into a late San Francisco swoon.
