The Odds

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Rams are 7.5-point favorites over the 49ers. As for the total, it opened at 39.5 and that's where it currently sits.

The Records

San Francisco is 2-5 straight up and 3-4 against the spread, while St. Louis is 3-3 overall and 3-3 at the betting window. The 49ers lost and failed to cover as a home underdog last Thursday night versus the Seahawks, while the Rams pounded the Browns 24-6 as a 6.5-point home favorite.

The Pick

The Niners only scored 3 points a week ago but the last time they generated just a field goal of offense was in an October 4 game versus Green Bay. The following week, they mustered 27 points on the road in a 30-27 loss to the Giants. St. Louis is stacked defensively and if it can slow down Carlos Hyde, Colin Kaepernick isn't going to have much success generating yards against an underrated secondary. That said, the over is 4-1 in the last five meetings between these two teams in St. Louis and these two teams are obviously familiar with each other. No opponent in the Rams' past three games has figured out a way to slow down Todd Gurley and we don't see that happening today. Look for the combined score to go over the posted total.
