For the last few years, the NFC West rivals couldn’t figure out how to walk away with a win. Now The Rams, young and full of fight, are 1-1 and looking to walk away from week 3 with a share of the division lead. The 49ers, on the other hand, are still trying to figure those wins out, but are more than talented enough to do it on Thursday.

Starting with the favorites, this is an opportunity to show whether they’re too good to be true. They started the season with a commanding victory over the lowly Indianapolis Colts before clawing at the Redskins in a close loss. They seem to be legit, as second-year Quarter Back Jared Goff has played well enough to warrant his First overall pick a year ago, at least through two weeks.
If they want to win, they are not just counting on Goff but also Running Back Todd Gurley. Gurley just can’t decide if he’s going to be good or not. His rookie season he put up 1100 yards, which he followed up with 800. Week 1 he opened with 40 yards, last week he tallied 120 total yards. But as we will get into, he faces an incredibly tough test this week.
That test is the soon-to-be vaunted defense of the 49ers. One of the best Defensive lines and a budding linebacking core should make life hard for The Rams running game. Seahawks rookie runner Chris Carson put up 93 yards on them last week, but they should be better prepared for Gurley.
On the other side of the ball, The San Fransisco offense has its ups and downs. Carlos Hyde put up over 100 yards on one of the best defenses in Seattle and should be set to repeat Thursday night. Quarter Back Brian Hoyer has had problems adjusting to Kyle Shanahan’s offense but doesn’t face the toughest pass defense in the league as he continues to get comfortable.
LA Rams 10 – 14 San Fransisco 49ers
Thursday Night games are notoriously low-scoring affairs, and The 49ers had one stolen from them against The Seahawks.
We predict San Fransisco covering the +3 spread (-110), under 39 1/2 (-110), and The 49ers taking the win (+130).
Note that the spread is an even 3, which would allow for a push if the game ends with The 49ers exactly 3 points less than The Rams.Bet Now!
