The Los Angeles Rams look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Los Angeles Rams have split their last six road games. Jared Goff is completing 63.2 percent of his passes for 3,996 yards, 17 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. Goff has one or less touchdown passes in 11 of his last 19 games. Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods have combined for 1,981 receiving yards and nine touchdowns while Tyler Higbee has 52 receptions. The Los Angeles Rams ground game is averaging 93.9 yards per contest, and Todd Gurley II leads the way with 741 yards and 10 touchdowns. Defensively, Los Angeles is allowing 21.9 points and 336.2 yards per game. Cory Littleton leads the Los Angeles Rams with 124 tackles, Aaron Donald has 11 sacks and John Johnson III has two interceptions.
The San Francisco 49ers look for a win after splitting their last six games. The San Francisco 49ers have won four of their last six home games. Jimmy Garoppolo is completing 69.1 percent of his passes for 3,445 yards, 26 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Garoppolo has four touchdown passes in three of his last seven games. George Kittle and Deebo Samuel have combined for 1,557 receiving yards and seven touchdowns while Emmanuel Sanders has 30 receptions. The San Francisco 49ers ground game is averaging 147 yards per contest, and Raheem Mostert leads the way with 662 yards and five touchdowns.

Fred Warner leads the San Francisco 49ers with 104 tackles, Arik Armstead has 10 sacks and Richard Sherman has three interceptions.
The Rams are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 road games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. NFC and 13-6 ATS in their last 19 games overall. The 49ers are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games, 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 vs. NFC West and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 7-2 in Rams last 9 games overall. The over is 6-2 in 49ers last 8 games overall. The Rams are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 meetings. The under is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in San Francisco.
The Los Angeles Rams are a really confusing team, as one minute they're beating up on the Seahawks to save their season and the next they get dominated by a struggling and bad Cowboys team. It would be nice if the Rams made up their mind and decided if they're a good team or not. The San Francisco 49ers went from being a dominant 8-0 team to losing three of their next six games and seeing a shutdown defense give up 75 points in their last two games. The Rams need this game if they're going to make a run for the playoffs and they have the guys in the trenches to give the 49ers issues up front. I don't like what I've seen from the San Francisco 49ers defensively these last two weeks. Rivalry division game with a lot on the line. I'll take the free touchdown.
