LA Rams Vs. San Francisco 49ers NFL Week 16 Betting Picks And Odds
The LA Rams and San Francisco 49ers had pathetic showings a week ago. Neither can’t afford a second consecutive loss, or their playoffs scenario can be highly compromised.
The situation for both is very different from the other. The 49ers are fighting for the top spot in the NFC while the Rams are just trying to get in the playoffs. Let’s dive into this NFC West contest.

The Los Angeles Rams’ Edge Vs. 49ers
The Rams are in trouble. With an 8-6 record, they need to win out to have a real shot at the playoffs, and even by winning their last two, Los Angeles might not get into the playoffs. They need Minnesota to lose their last two games.
After their two best games of the season against Arizona and Seattle, the Rams played one of their worst contests last week against the Cowboys. Their 44-21 defeat was a pitiful display on both sides of the ball.
TE Tyler Higbee is the only player who recorded good numbers against Dallas. He had 111 yards in 12 receptions. Neither Todd Gurley nor Jared Goff was a high point on offense.
The defense was just as bad. It was the third time they have allowed 44 points or more this season. Each time they lost the game.
The San Francisco 49ers’ Edge Vs. Rams
The 49ers 29-22 loss to the Atlanta Falcons last week had both a crazy and unexpected ending. The truth is San Francisco is a much better team, but that meeting had a “trap game” written all over the place.
The Niners’ recent schedule has been brutal. San Francisco played against Green Bay, Baltimore, and New Orleans before facing the lousy Falcons. Those three opponents have a combined 34-8 record.
It was mostly a lousy effort from the Niners’ part. Nothing has changed from them. They need to beat the Rams and Seahawks in the last two games of the regular season, and they will regain the top of the NFC.
The Niners defense missed CB Richard Sherman last week. It allowed WR Julio Jones to get open as much as he wanted. Sherman said he would play against the Rams, although he suffered a hamstring injury just two weeks ago.
Los Angeles Rams At San Francisco 49ers NFL Week 16 Prediction
The Rams have been too big of an enigma all season to trust them. They have played great games, but some others left many of us scratching our heads.
San Francisco is the best team in this game, and it has been that way all season. The Niners showed signs of fatigue against the Falcons, but that defeat doubles as a wake-up call.
The 49ers already took care of the Rams in Los Angeles. Their defense held Jared Goff to just 78 passing yards all game.
San Francisco Didn’t Miss Todd Gurley
Todd Gurley didn’t play that game, but that hardly matters. San Francisco took care of business. Gurley has given us glimpses of his old form, but he hasn’t put together a great full game yet.
The return of Sherman makes the field so short for Goff that it is very likely we see Jared throwing one interception or two. San Francisco’s defense should dominate this matchup once again. Bet Niners -6.5.
