49ers-Rams: 49ers open as 7 point favorites

As the NFL season winds to a close, we get one last week of regular season gambling action (worthy of a special post tomorrow morning).  The 49ers travel to the woeful St. Louis Rams looking to wrap up an 8-8 season and avoid the dreaded losing mark for the first time since 2002.  The line opened over at Scores and Odds with the 49ers set as 7 point favorites, with an over/under of 40.5.  They list Steven Jackson as "upgraded to probable," so we'll see how the injury situation plays out this week (Jackson was inactive Sunday against the Cardinals).

In the meantime, here are some gambling stats and trends heading into this week, courtesy of Capper's Picks and Bodog.com stats (ATS - against the spread; SU - straight up):

  • San Francisco is 8-2 ATS in its last 10 games when playing St. Louis
  • San Francisco is 4-1 SU in its last 5 games when playing St. Louis
