Approaching the Game: Against the Spread and Over/Under
This game has so many intriguing levels to it. Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers have absolutely owned the Rams and Sean McVay the past three years with a perfect 6-0 mark.
You see that, and one has to wonder if it will just be more of the same this Sunday.
The first meeting this year wasn’t close, with San Francisco winning at home, 31-10. It took overtime in Week 18 for the 49ers to win again in what was a must-win scenario for the 49ers to clinch a postseason berth.
