INJURY REPORT: Trent Brown is out for the year after suffering a shoulder injury earlier this month. Garry Gilliam (knee), Jaquiski Tartt (Arm), Jimmie Ward (forearm), Asa Jackson (hamstring) and Joshua Garnett (knee) are also out for the 49ers.

The over is also 5-2 in the Niners' last seven games when playing an opponent with a winning record and is 11-5 in their last 16 games after allowing more than 350 total yards in their previous contest.

The over has also cashed in five of the Rams' last seven divisional games and is 9-4 in their last 13 conference games.
