Rams vs. 49ers: Betting odds, lines, picks against the spread

The Rams have a massive NFC West matchup against the 49ers on Monday Night Football. Here’s a look at the game from a betting perspective.

Rams at the San Francisco 49ers (-1½, 42½)

Last week wasn’t pretty for either team, but one won and the other didn’t, meaning the Rams have a chance to open a two-game lead in the NFC West with an MNF win over their rivals. In LA’s 20-12 win over the Cardinals, the Rams were losing an average of 7.4 yards per play, so they were moving the ball very effectively. They also failed to cash in on two of their three trips into the red zone, dropping three of eight in third place.

The Cardinals ran 81 games to just 46 for the Rams, which allowed Arizona to convert four of five fourth tries and stay on the field for nearly 34 minutes.

At the end of the day, it was a win for the Rams and one that didn’t see Cooper Kupp alone as the star of the show. In fact, Cam Akers had 12 carries for 61 yards and a touchdown, though he fumbled within the five to put himself back in the doghouse a bit.

Call it a Super Bowl hangover if you will, but it’s been a slow start to the season for the Rams. They only averaged 5.3 yards per game and looked terrible against the Bills. The game against the Falcons ended too close to be comfortable, and the win over the Cardinals was far from impressive. As a result, it’s difficult to like Los Angeles’ chances here.

The 49ers have already had to change course due to Trey Lance’s injury, with safety net Jimmy Garoppolo taking over for last week’s loss to the Broncos. The 49ers have averaged just 5.1 yards per game, but their defense has been the best in the league at 3.9 yards per game and the highest pressing percentage in the league.

Given that Matthew Stafford already has five interceptions and nine sacks, the pressure he’s likely to receive here behind a disappointing offensive line is really concerning. This looks to be another game that’s been nominated for a low score, especially as the teams played 10-on-19 together in the red zone.

Tip: Under 42½
