Betting on the San Francisco 49ers (-1.5)
Regular Season Record: 3-4
Christian McCaffreyhas arrived in the Bay Area, but his debut with the 49ers did not go as well as most SF fans expected. But with another week to acclimate more with his new teammates and the 49ers’ system, CMC should just be fine in Week 8. Against the Chiefs, McCaffrey rushed for 38 yards on eight carries and caught just two passes for 24 yards. Remember, the 49ers didn’t even have CMC when they crushed the Rams, 24-9, back in Week 4 at home. But it is really the Niners’ defense that spelled the differencec, and they hope that they will be able to rough up Matthew Stafford again on Sunday. In the first meeting, the 49ers sacked Stafford a total of seven times and also forced the Rams to cough up the ball twice. So far this season, San Francisco is third overall with just 294.9 total yards allowed per game and second with only 91.0 rushing yards given up per contest.
The 49ers are 4-0 against the spread in their last four meetings with their rivals in the NFC West division.
Betting on the Los Angeles Rams (+1.5)
Regular Season Record: 3-3
One thing about the Rams is that they will have the fresher set of legs than the 49ers in Week 8. After all, Los Angeles had a Week 7 bye. Before taking that extra week of rest, the Rams regained their footing by beating the Panthers, which wasn’t really much to say about considering that Carolina isn’t going anywhere this season. Nevertheless, Matthew Stafford and the Rams will be playing at the friendlier confine of their home turf. Although he is also not having such a memorable season, Stafford has been more stable under center than the Niners’ Jimmy Gaoppolo. The Rams are more prepared for San Francisco’s pass rush this time around. He was sacked just once in the Carolina. And LA still have Cooper Kupp, who will put up sparkling numbers no matter what. In the loss to the Niners, Kupp torched SF defenders for 122 receiving yards on 14 receptions and 19 targets.
The Under is 4-0 in the Rams’ last four games against NFC teams.
The Rams win, 28-24.
