The 49ers have struggled all season but are they a smart underdog play this afternoon at 4:25PM ET versus the Rams?

SAN FRANCISCO KEY TRENDS: The 49ers are just 4-9-1 against the spread in their last 14 divisional games and are 10-25-1 against the number in their last 36 games overall. They're also 1-6 at the betting window in their last seven games versus an opponent that owns a losing record, are 1-8 against the spread in their last nine conference games, and are 1-9-1 against the number in their last 11 games after allowing more than 350 total yards in their previous game.

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.
