Straight Up (Sebastian Morera)
Despite being at the bottom of many preseason power rankings, the Rams are sitting on a 4-1 record. However, those wins haven’t come against the toughest teams in the league; Cowboys, Eagles, Giants and the Washington Football Team. So far, Los Angeles’ lone loss came against the Buffalo Bills in Week 3.
The 49ers on the other hand, had high expectations ahead of the 2020 season but are now sitting on a 2-3 record. Jimmy G got banged up early in the season but was supposed to make his return in their Week 5 match against the Dolphins. Instead, we saw Garoppolo come out and throw 2 picks, get sacked 3 times for a loss of 23 and ultimately get benched in San Fran’s 43-17 loss to the Fins. So, I don’t see how the 49ers can rebound from that humiliation. The Rams will win this one.
Against the Spread (Devlin Duckett)
The charging Los Angeles Rams (4-1) will not miss this opportunity to stick it to their division rivals, the staggering San Francisco 49ers (2-3). Rams’ QB Jared Goff must be salivating over this juicy matchup, since the Dolphins’ Ryan Fitzpatrick just torched the Niners defense for 350 yards and three touchdowns. Goff is in line for his third 300+ yard performance of 2020 against a severely hobbled 49ers defense.
Meanwhile, the Rams D is turning into a monster right before our eyes. San Francisco’s struggling offense will have a hard time getting anything going vs these guys. I don’t believe that this game will be close at all.
Over/Under (Zack Robinson)
The Los Angeles Rams sacked the Washington Football Team QBs eight times.
Now, they face an offense who struggled a lot against the Miami Dolphins defense.
Offensively speaking, Jared Goff is regaining confidence. The Rams average 27.2 points per game and the total has gone under in five of LA Rams’ last seven games against San Francisco on the road.
In Week 5, Jimmy Garoppolo played one of his worst games since becoming the San Francisco 49ers’ starting quarterback.
Luckily for the Niners, RB Raheem Mostert returned and he looked good. Now, at 100%, the offensive game plan should rely heavily on him.
The 49ers average 24.8 points per game and the total has gone over in six of San Francisco’s last seven games played in Week 6. Go under.
