After opening as a 3.5-point favorite, the Rams are now -3 versus the 49ers for today's NFC West matchup. According to oddsmakers from online sports book RealBet.eu, the over/under is currently sitting at 37.5 points.

After winning their last three games, St. Louis is now 7-8 on the season and 7-7-1 against the spread. San Francisco won't have an opportunity to reach .500, as the Niners are 4-11 straight up and 6-9 against the spread. Our NFL public betting page shows that 63% of wagers are currently on the Rams -3.

Free Pick:

While they haven't exactly morphed into the "Greatest Show on Turf," the Rams have been much more efficient offensively since Rob Boras took over the play-calling duties for the fired Frank Cignetti. Case Keenum has done a nice job managing games and not turning the ball over, while Todd Gurley further entrenches himself as a franchise back.

But Gurley is doubtful for today's game due to a foot injury and won't play. Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham are capable backs, but it's unlikely that they're going to produce the explosive plays that Gurley has all season. Even with San Francisco ranking near the bottom of the league in all key defensive statistics, the Niners should keep the Rams' offense in the teens in terms of points. With the Blaine Gabbert and Co. only averaging 14.6 points per game themselves, the under offers bettors with the best value today.
