If you had told me before the season that at this point, the 49ers would be in first in the NFC West and the Rams had lost two in a row, I probably wouldn’t have believed you. However, that’s what has happened and the 49ers look like a team that’s serious about a postseason pish. However, the Rams have had some extra time to rest and prepare while San Fran comes into this game on short rest. I just think the Rams can win this one by a touchdown, so I’ll lay the points with the Rams here.
