The Line: Los Angeles Rams -3 -- Over/Under: 50.5
The San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams meet Sunday in NFL action at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
The San Francisco 49ers look to keep the ball rolling while improving to 5-0 on the season. The San Francisco 49ers have lost eight of their last 10 road games. Jimmy Garoppolo is completing 69 percent of his passes for 920 yards, seven touchdowns and four interceptions. Garoppolo has 11 touchdown passes in his last six games. George Kittle and Marquise Goodwin have combined for 401 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Deebo Samuel has 12 receptions. The San Francisco 49ers ground game is averaging 200 yards per contest, and Matt Breida leads the way with 340 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, San Francisco is allowing 14.3 points and 257.5 yards per game. Fred Warner leads the San Francisco 49ers with 25 tackles, Nick Bosa has three sacks and Richard Sherman has two interceptions.
The Los Angeles Rams need a bounce back victory here after losing their last two games. The Los Angeles Rams have won eight of their last 10 home games. Jared Goff is completing 63.1 percent of his passes for 1,649 yards, seven touchdowns and seven interceptions. Goff has one or less touchdown passes in seven of his last 10 games. Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods have combined for 860 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Brandin Cooks has 20 receptions. The Los Angeles Rams ground game is averaging 96.2 yards per contest, and Todd Gurley II leads the way with 270 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively, Los Angeles is allowing 26.8 points and 350 yards per game. John Johnson III leads the Los Angeles Rams with 42 tackles, Clay Matthews has six sacks and Marcus Peters has one interception.
The 49ers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win, 7-19-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 vs. NFC. The Rams are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 vs. NFC, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. NFC West and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The 49ers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings and the over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The over is 6-2 in Rams last 8 home games. The over is 5-2 in 49ers last 7 vs. NFC West.
The San Francisco 49ers have split their last 14 games ATS as a road underdog. The Los Angeles Rams are 4-4-2 ATS in their last 10 games as a home favorite. The 49ers have looked good up to this point, but there's still reason for pause when you consider the four teams they've beaten have a combined SU record of 5-15. The Los Angeles Rams are due for a victory after back-to-back losses, and they haven't lost three straight games since the end of the 2016 season. The Rams have won three of the last four games against the 49ers and the last two wins last year were decided by an average 22.5 points. This feels like a bad schedule spot for the 49ers. I'll lay the field goal with the Rams.
