The San Francisco 49ers are an interesting team. They have a coach they want to fire after incredible, sustained success. They have a quarterback that very suddenly isn’t achieving after being handed the reins. They have a dysfunctional locker room brimming with talent, struggling with inconsistency. Thus, we have our -3 line on the road against a bad Rams team.

To that end, the St. Louis Rams are an interesting team too. Without their starting quarterback, they’ve found a way to win with a third stringer and be competitive in their other three games. At home, with a brilliant coach, this team will be prepared on a national stage. The question for me, quite simply, is do they have enough weapons?

This is a divisional rivalry game, so we expect it to be close. There are two telling signs for the Rams to cover: STRONG public money numbers on a seemingly obvious spread and the fact that they’re home. There’s one reason to bet the Niners – theyre the more talented team.

So, can the Niners get out of their own way and win a game they probably should have every time? Will the Rams shock the world?

The computer sees value in the Rams +3, though it also predicts a 49ers win. Buying the hook seems like a prudent move either way, with so much public money pouring in on the Niners. That said, I just can’t see the Rams taking this one. San Francisco is a mess, but they’re the better team. Big stage – big performances. I think San Francisco puts it all together again after a big win last week.

LOW CONFIDENCE going against the computer here:
49ers 27 – Rams 19
