1-Star Best Bet – *San Francisco (+7.5) over LA RAMS

1-Star Best Bet – *Under (46.5)

Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp combined for 275 receiving yards last week in the win over Tampa Bay but the Rams WRs will likely be contained on Sunday across from San Francisco’s cornerbacks. Jason Verrett is conceding only 0.64 yards per cover snap (4th) and looks to be back to the level he was at during his Pro Bowl season in 2015. Richard Sherman will play this week in just his second game all year. Sherman allowed a league-low 0.44 yards per cover snap in 2019 and the 49ers CBs have the potential to be elite if he can maintain anywhere close to that level opposite Verrett. The Rams are playing without LT Andrew Whitworth, who leads all tackles in pass blocking efficiency, and his absence will hurt them in this matchup, as edge defender Kerry Hyder ranks 12th in pass rushing efficiency. Jared Goff has been terrible when pressured once again this year, averaging just 2.9 yards per pass play under pressure and he should face more than his normal percentage of pressures in this game.

Kyle Shanahan is one of the few coaches in the league that can scheme Aaron Donald out of the game. Donald was held to just 3 pressures (half his season average) when these teams met in week 6. San Francisco’s offense won’t have Jimmy Garoppolo or George Kittle again but those two have each only played in six of the ten games and the 49ers are still above the league-average at 5.7 yards per play. Our metrics have San Francisco’s offense ranked 23rd without the starting QB and All-Pro tight end. The Rams, meanwhile, are conceding a league-low 4.7 yppl and have the league’s top pass defense by our numbers.

Both teams should have trouble throwing the football and I expect a close, low-scoring game. Our metrics favor the Rams by just 2.2 points, with a predicted total of only 42.3 points. San Francisco is a 1-Star Best Bet at +7 or more (Strong Opinion down to +6) and the Under is a 1-Star Best Bet at 46 or higher (Strong Opinion at 45.5 points).
