NFL Week 4 Betting Preview for LA Rams at San Francisco

Rams Look To Remain on the Top of NFC West Standings

The Los Angeles Rams have won two straight games after being humiliated by the Buffalo Bills in Week one. Los Angeles has stepped up in a major way, including a 20-12 victory against the Arizona Cardinals in the desert last week. 

Cooper Kupp continued his dominance, scoring his fourth touchdown on the year, while Matthew Stafford added 248 yards passing and Cam Akers rushed for a touchdown.

The Rams’ offense has gotten off to a little bit of a slow start as they rank 25th in total offense (306.3) and 15th in points per game (20.3). With four touchdown throws and five interceptions, Matthew Stafford hopes to pick it up in conference play. LA’s offensive line ranks 25th in pass protection and has given up nine sacks on the year.

On the defensive side of the ball, Ernest Jones leads the club in tackles with 24, and Bobby Wagner and Aaron Donald both have two sacks. The defensive unit has always played well under Sean McVay, and the line has been strong, holding opponents to 93 yards rushing per game. Additionally, the defense ranks third in takeaways with seven. 

49ers Looking For Spark On Offense

The 49ers enter this contest with a disappointing 1-2 record after falling to the Bears and Broncos, with their only win coming against the lowly Seahawks. The offense is struggling and will have Jimmy Garrapolo under center moving forward. They will look to bounce back in primetime.

San Francisco’s offense, with the exception of its performance against a feeble Seattle Seahawks defense, has seemed to be inactive, missing a reliable rushing game and exciting plays. 

Staters Jeff Wilson and Trey Lance both hit the IR in game one and game two, respectively, and they will potentially be without their starting tackle Trent Williams. The offense has posted a dismal 323.7 yards and 15.7 points per game.

When it comes to rushing defense, both San Francisco and Los Angeles are now ranked in the top four teams in the NFL, with San Francisco’s defense playing like one of the league’s finest units and Los Angeles’ defense currently outperforming its offense. The unit has four takeaways on the year and ranks second in total defense (227).

Odds and Lines 

The 49ers will be the money -120 moneyline and -1.5 point home favorite. Meanwhile, the Rams, despite their excellent play so far, are +100 moneyline and +1.5 point spread underdogs. The point total is hovering around. 

What to Bet

Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers had won six straight games against the Rams before falling short 17-20 in the NFC title game the previous year. In the previous seven meetings between these two teams, the Niners have covered six of the games. 

Despite this, I think there are too many factors going against the 49ers in this one. The Rams are playing excellent football, winning their last two contests, while the 49ers are dealing with a plethora of injuries. The Rams are better on both sides of the ball, and I think they will win this one outright on the road. 

Pick: Rams ML +100
