How To Bet On Rams 49ers – Rams Try To Pull Off Big Upset Against Niners

The St. Louis Rams have no margin for error at this point in their season. They have to beat the San Francisco 49ers this Sunday to have any remote chance at making the 2012 NFL postseason.

Why St. Louis Will Win

The online sports betting legal world might be downgrading the San Francisco 49ers at this point. At at the beginning of the season, the San Francisco 49ers were going to be one of the two best teams in the National Football Conference, a clear favorite for the Super Bowl. The first nine weeks of the NFL season haven't elevated the 49ers to that lofty position. San Francisco is more of a work in progress than a lot of pigskin pundits expected the team to be at this point in the season. Quarterback Alex Smith has slightly regressed from his 2011 season. He has not made clear forward progressions in his development as a pocket passer. He has been unsteady at times and has not given this team the improved offensive production it is looking for. San Francisco's defense is still really strong, but the offense has been so balky at times that the Niners have been exposed.

St. Louis has a pass rush that is better than what most NFL teams can offer. The Rams registered nine quarterback sacks a month ago against the Arizona Cardinals. They can get a really good push with their front four and cause Smith a lot of problems. The Rams are equipped to take on the Niners' offense at its weakest points and do some damage as a result. St. Louis can gain a chance to win this game in the fourth quarter, provided that it can force at least two turnovers from Smith.

Why San Francisco Will Win

The football betting experts who are dissecting this game are aware of the fact that the 49ers aren't improving on offense, but they will gently point out that there's no comparison between San Francisco's defense and St. Louis' offense. St. Louis quarterback Sam Bradford just hasn't been able to flourish the way other young quarterbacks in the NFL have managed to do, both this year and in recent seasons. Bradford is now in his fourth NFL campaign, but his career seems stuck in second gear. Uncertain at times and handed a mediocre offensive line, Bradford just hasn't been able to become particularly comfortable in the pocket.

Against San Francisco's supremely physical and well-schooled defense, Bradford is going to be in for a very long day. San Francisco is good at stuffing the run, which means that the Rams are going to have a very hard time establishing running back Stephen Jackson between the tackles. If the Niners take that away, they'll be able to rush Bradford effectively on third downs.

Who Will Win

It’s San Francisco's game to lose. St. Louis' time is in the future, not the present moment. The 49ers have too much power in the trenches – on both sides of the ball – for the Rams, who aren't ready to compete in this NFC West matchup.
