49ers vs. Rams Breakdown and Betting Odds

The 3-4 San Francisco 49ers take on the 3-3 Los Angeles Rams on October 30 for a Week 8 game beginning at 4:25 EDT.

The 49ers are a 1-point favorite, and the over/under is set at 41.

This is a rematch of the Week 4 game in which the 49ers beat the Rams by the score of 24-9.

San Francisco 49ers Overview

The 49ers are coming off a Week 7 24-9 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs where they were dominated in all facets of the game.

In their last meeting with the Rams, the 49ers were able to get rushing and defensive touchdowns as well as a score from Deebo Samuel who is dealing with a hamstring strain that could limit his snap count.

Pro Football Talk ranks the 49ers 16th overall in their 2022 Week 8 team power rankings. The 49ers average 20.7 points per game through seven weeks.

Los Angeles Rams Overview

The Rams look nothing like their Super Bowl Champion selves from last season. They are not putting up the points offensively or dominating defensively. Given their offensive weapons, it is shocking that they are averaging only 17.3 points per game.

The Week 8 Pro Football Talk overall team rankings tell the tale for their quest to repeat; they are ranked in the middle of the pack at 17th.

Quarterback Matthew Stafford passed for 254 yards, one interception that resulted in a Pick 6, and no touchdowns the last time he faced the 49ers in Week 4.

Free Pick: Over 41

The Rams are coming off a bye and are at home so they will be the fresher of the two teams. They did put up 24 points against Carolina in Week 6 so perhaps the offense is starting to find a groove. The 49ers scored 23 against the Chiefs and 24 the last time they faced the Rams so the Over 41 option is prudent.
