SUNDAY NIGHT SALVAGER

The Sunday night matchup between the Rams and 49ers has some early implications in a suddenly competitive NFC West which is shaping up to be the toughest division in the NFL this season. The problem is that while they’re getting healthy, the Niners are still banged up, and while a depleted roster could still cut it against the Jets, Giants and teams of that nature, it won’t necessarily work against a Rams team that’s playing some solid ball right now with Jared Goff playing some of the best football of his career. Laying points on the road in a division rivalry is a tricky proposition, but I feel that the Rams win this one by 4-7 points. I’ll back the Los Angeles Rams and lay the points as my premium pick for this game.
