OUR PREDICTION: Both of these teams have struggled mightily this season so I don't understand why the Rams would be a 5-point favorite when both teams are crap. Granted, they have the better defense, but it's not as if Gregg Williams' unit has been playing well of late. I have more faith in Carlos Hyde and Colin Kaepernick moving the Niners' offense than I do Jared Goff and Todd Gurley, who looks like he lost most of the burst he had a year ago. With both teams capable of struggling, I'll take the five points with the Niners.
