Rams vs 49ers pick against the spread and betting preview
The Sunday night football game features two teams heading in opposite directions. The San Francisco 49ers have Super Bowl aspirations, but injuries and poor play have slowed this team down. The LA Rams are quietly winning football games and looking like contenders. This Sunday night showdown will be an important game for both teams. This will be a heavily bet on game, therefore it is important to make the right Rams vs 49ers pick against the spread.
Losing Faith in the 49ers
The 49ers have lost two straight games and they have looked bad, very bad. In the crushing loss to the Miami Dolphins, bandwagon bettors decided it was time to get off. That is why the 49ers are now home underdogs against the Rams. The 49ers started out as 3-point favorites, but now the role of favorite belongs to the Rams. The Rams are attracting 57 percent of the betting action according to top sportsbooks.

The Rams are built around a solid running game. They are seventh in the NFL in rushing yards per game, posting over 142 yards per contest. The running game opens up things for Jared Goff who passed for over 300 yards in the win against Washington. Goff has passed for over 300 yards in three straight road games and tossed multiple touchdown passes in seven road games in a row. Adding to the Ram’s success is the fact that Rams head coach Sean McVay is 11-6-1 against the spread (ATS) when playing a divisional opponent.
49ers Injuries Galore
The 49ers finally have some good news on the injury front. Jimmy Garoppolo had a very good week of practice and should be much healthier than last week. Garoppolo played last week but was pulled for “protection” although his play would have warranted a benching. If the 49ers run the ball successfully it will make things much easier for the quarterback. The Rams rank 28th in DVOA against the run and that will allow Raheem Mostert to have a monster day.
Rams vs 49ers pick against the spread
The 49ers are at their best when they can run the ball. The Rams will not be able to slow down the run and that will open up the passing game. Keep an eye on tight end George Kittle who has 537 yards and three scores in six career games against the Rams. The Rams are 8-22-1 ATS in their last 31 games after allowing less than 150 yards passing in their previous game. The 49ers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as an underdog and they are the best bet for Sunday night.
