Los Angeles Rams at San Francisco 49ers Predictions & Tips


Los Angeles are backed to at least cover as a road underdog.

The Rams have underwhelmed so far, but there is still plenty of talent on both sides of the football.

Improvement is expected in the coming weeks and that cannot be said for San Francisco’s offense.

They are struggling to put up points so the Rams may not need many against this tough 49ers defense.

  • LA Rams have covered in 3 of their last 54 games as a betting underdog
  • LA Rams are averaging 4.6 points per game more than San Francisco
  • The Under has cashed in 10 of San Francisco’s last 11 games
  • The Under has cashed in 11 of LA Ram’s last 16 division games

Head To Head


  • San Francisco 49ers lead the all-time series 75-68-3
  • Los Angeles Rams won 2017 when the teams last met in January 2022

Los Angeles Rams Form


Los Angeles head to Santa Clara looking to win their third consecutive game and knock off a division rival.

The defending Super Bowl champion Rams kicked off the season with a 31-10 home defeat to Buffalo.

They have rebounded though, following up a 31-27 win against Atlanta with a 20-12 victory at Arizona.

QB Matthew Stafford, who is dealing with an elbow injury, has gone 74/102 for 761 yards, four touchdowns and five interceptions.

Cooper Kupp is the team’s leading receiver with 280 yards and three TDs off 28 receptions.

Tyler Higbee has contributed 171 receiving yards, while offseason acquisition Allen Robinson has managed only 88 yards and a score through three games.

Out of the backfield, Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson have combined for 216 yards and two TDs.

On the opposite side of the football, the defense has failed to reach the heights of last season.

They have allowed 23.3 points and 346.3 yards per game to rank in the bottom half of the league.

Los Angeles have averaged 2.3 per game though – the second best takeaway rate in the NFL.

San Francisco 49ers Form


San Francisco head into this Monday Night Football with a 1-2 record following another miserable loss.

The 49ers suffered a shock 19-10 defeat at Chicago on opening weekend, but bounced back to beat Seattle 27-7 in their home opener.

They failed to follow that up though, suffering a miserable 11-10 defeat at Denver in Week 3.

QB Jimmy Garoppolo has replaced the injured Trey Lance as starting QB and has so far gone 31/50 for 365 yards, two touchdowns and a pick.

Brandon Aiyuk is the team’s leading receiver with 142 yards and a TD, while Jeff Wilson has rushed for a team-leading 181 yards.

The biggest weapon on this offense is Deebo Samuel, who has 242 yards from scrimmage and only one TD.

While the offense has faltered, the defense have done their best to keep San Francisco in games.

The 49ers rank third in the league in points per game, giving up just 12.3, but it should be noted that they have faced some of the NFL’s worst offenses.

They are second in yards allowed per game (227.0) and are just outside the top 10 in takeaways per game (1.3).
