As a team, Los Angeles is averaging 369.9 yards of total offense and 23.7 points per game while allowing 336.2 yards of total defense and 21.9 points per game against this season.

Los Angeles is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 division games and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 road games while the under is 7-2 in their last 9 games overall. San Francisco is 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 division games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 home games. Los Angeles is 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings between these two teams.

I’ve gone back and forth on this game as both teams need the win with San Fran needing a win to make next week’s game against Seattle mean anything while the Rams are trying to keep their playoff hopes alive. Neither of these teams have been anything special lately, as the 49ers have been getting torched in their last couple of games on defense while the Rams were just abused by the Cowboys. In the end, this is still a division game between two teams that don’t like each other and have a ton on the line and I think both teams take a cautious approach as to not be the first to blink and make a mistake. I think this game ends up being decided by a field goal late, so I’ll take a shot with the Rams and the points in this one.
