Los Angeles Rams (7-2) @ San Francisco 49ers (3-5) – 8:15pm ET/5pm PT on ESPN
The Rams have won every game they’ve played on the road this season while the 49ers have struggled to win at home. Los Angeles will look to turn to their high-octane passing attack led by Matthew Stafford and Cooper Kupp as they try to take advantage of a shoddy 49er secondary that allows 12.3 yards per completion which is the most in the NFL.
On the flip side, the Rams defense is seventh in red zone touchdown percentage, the first ranked red zone touchdown offense of the 49ers will look to challenge them this time out. With “Ram killers” Deebo Samuel and George Kittle ready to go for Monday night, San Francisco will have weapons that are capable of breaking open a game.
The Rams will be taking on the 21st run defense with their 20th ranked rushing offense. All in all, the Rams are 0-3 in their last three meetings against the 49ers and while they have come close, Kyle Shanahan has had Sean McVay’s number. With brand new quarterback Stafford under center and a duo of stars joining the team this Monday in Odell Beckham Jr. and Von Miller, times might be changing moving forward.
Priority bet: Los Angeles Rams -4 (-110) – MyBookie
The Los Angeles Rams have had a rough time versus the Niners as quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is undefeated against Los Angeles. However, this is a new team, the Rams are much better this season than the 49ers. While I could see this being a tough, hard-fought game, I’m going to go with the Rams -4 seeing as I have 31-19 as the final score.
The Rams just have way too many ways they can beat the 49ers. Sure, there are some significant injuries that include the likes of Robert Woods, Brian Allen, and Sebastian Joseph-Day. However, the Rams should be able to take shots all night long on the Niners banged-up secondary. Not to mention, running the football on a below average run defense.
The 49ers are 2-3 in their last five games against the spread, while the Rams are 3-2 in their last five games against the spread.

First-half bet: Los Angeles Rams -3 (-110) – MyBookie
The Los Angeles Rams are sixth in the league in first-half points per game while the 49ers are 22nd. To make this an even better sounding bet, the Rams are third in the league in first-half points per road game while the 49ers are 26th in first-half points per home game.
I expect Sean McVay to focus on putting pressure early on the road as he has done all season long when playing away from SoFi stadium. This should be an easy win at the half assuming the Rams don’t come out completely flat.

Specials prop bet: Matthew Stafford Longest Completion Over 38.5 (-118) – MyBookie
As mentioned before, the 49ers passing defense is abysmal and is giving up the most yards per attempt. Matthew Stafford is one of the top quarterbacks this season and leads the league with 10 forty-plus yard pass completions. There is a different feeling in the air this week as the Los Angeles Rams offense just lost Woods for the season. I expect them to come out firing and test this Niners secondary right off the rip. To win this bet it doesn’t have to be much of a deep bomb especially with Cooper Kupp’s five 40-plus yards receptions this season in which most were generated after the catch.
I expect the 49ers to give up a few chunk plays and Stafford hits this bet whether it’s to Van Jefferson, Cooper Kupp or Odell Beckham Jr.

Multi’s Odds bet: Cooper Kupp to have 150+ receiving yards, 7+ receptions, 2+ touchdowns and Rams score over 27 total points (+2200) – MyBookie
I am not saying to 100 percent throw the gauntlet down here. However, Cooper Kupp averages 8.2 receptions per game, 113.2 yards per game and 1.1 touchdowns per game. Not to mention the Los Angeles Rams 29 points per game. Sure, Kupp wouldn’t hit the touchdowns or yards per game mark with his current averages. However, Woods is out, I expect Odell Beckham Jr. and Van Jefferson to generate enough opportunities for Kupp not to mention McVay drawing up plays to get him open for this to be possible.
Kupp has two games in which he went over the receiving yards, receptions and hit the touchdowns number. Like I said, I wouldn’t throw the gauntlet down but if you want to throw a small bet down on this, it’s not impossible especially with the way Kupp has looked this season. If you feel as though Woods’ injury hurts Kupp’s ability to get open then you might want to avoid this bet altogether.

Prop bet: Tyler Higbee Over 41.5 receiving yards (-110) – MyBookie
The last bet here is on the Rams only tight end they feel comfortable with. Tyler Higbee has finished above 41.5 three times this year. However, I am not worried and I do feel like this is an easy win. Higbee had the most targets he’s had all season last week with 10 and I feel as though with the Woods injury, Higbee could potentially become the third option if Beckham Jr. has a hard time finding his footing in the offense with seemingly one practice under his belt.
This isn’t like most games, the Rams lost a top receiver and so this prop is very attainable now considering the trend Higbee is leaning following last week.
