Rams vs 49ers Betting Analysis

San Francisco at home is a heavy under play with the under going 21-8 in 49ers last 29 home games. This years 49ers team has the worst pass blocking offensive line in the NFL and a decent run blocking team. So, expect the 49ers to run and run and run. Last week against Seattle when they did try to pass the ball they were just as likely to hurt the team as help it. An important change from this years Rams team is they have a new defensive coordinator. Wade Phillips is now in charge and he runs a very aggressive defense that will attack the line of scrimmage and the quarterback.

Carlos Hyde will get his yards and will likely pop one or two long runs against an overaggressive Rams defense but the offense will not be able to sustain long drives. Expect the Rams to run a balanced offense with them trying to get the running game going. I am not sold on Todd Gurley as a top running back. I can see Goff hitting enough passes to get the Rams the win in a low scoring game.

Rams vs 49ers Thursday Night Football Pick
Rams -2.5 & Under 40

Note: I will take the Rams up to -3 but if given the opportunity I recommend if your sportsbook allows you to buy down to -2.5 for a dime I would take it.
