49ers vs. Rams Gambling Odds: Rams Sit As Slight Favorite In NFC West Showdown

New, 1 comment

The line for the San Francisco 49ers matchup with the St. Louis Rams opened at -1 and is currently fluctuating between that and -2. The over/under on the matchup is sitting at 39 points.

Given that neither team has a highly prolific offense this game is unliikely to put a whole lot of points on the board. Of course, the problem with betting on anything related to this game is the fact that both teams have been wildly inconsistent. The Rams are actually playing well against the spread going 9-5. However they struggle with the over sitting at 5-9.

The 49ers have struggled immensely on the road and really haven’t beaten a truly good team yet in 2010. The Rams aren’t really a good team at this point but at the same time, playing at home in St. Louis should give them a boost. That wasn’t the case last week against the Kansas City Chiefs, but the 49ers are definitely not the Chiefs.

As a 49ers fan I’d take the 49ers moneyline. As an objective football fan I’d take the Rams to cover. As a generally logical person I wouldn’t touch this game with a ten foot pole.
