The San Francisco 49ers are the better team on paper and are playing the better all this season, but they've also had issues on the road this season. The Los Angeles Rams have been a mess for much of the year, but they're coming off their best showing, and they've had an extra week to prepare. Sean McVay is still a very good coach, and he always has tricks up his sleeve, so giving him an extra week is valuable. I'll take the free points with the Rams at home.
