The San Francisco 49ers just finished losing a close one to the Seattle Seahawks, but they have a quick turnaround for Week 3. The 49ers will host the Los Angeles Rams this week on Thursday Night Football.
The line is officially out for the game, and the 49ers are a three-point home underdog, according to our friends at Odds Shark. The Rams are coming off a 27-20 home loss to Washington. The Rams offense is showing signs of life under new head coach Sean McVay, but couldn’t get going consistently against Washington.
The Rams are 1-7-1 straight up in their last eight games at the 49ers. They are 5-11 against the spread in their last 16 road games against the 49ers. That doesn’t tell us a whole lot given the turnover for both teams this year, but it’s worth a note.
Last week, the Westgate Superbook offered up a look-ahead line for this game. That is an initial look to give people a base line for when the line opens. 49ers-Rams had a 2.5-point look-ahead line late last week prior to opening tonight. I’m a little surprised the 49ers better than expected loss in Seattle didn’t give them a little more love. I’m curious to see how the public bets on this one between now and Thursday.
