The takeover has already started in Los Angeles as 49er fans have been seen all over the city this weekend. I cannot wait to see the contract between Niners and Rams fans at SoFi Stadium. I would be shocked if there wasn’t a sea of red in the stands.

Only one of our staff members picked the 49ers to lose this weekend. I’ve gone back and forth about how many points we’ll see. At first, I thought Kyle Shanahan would run the ball a bunch, play keep away, and try and win that way.
The more I think about it, the more I believe the Niners will want to dictate what the Rams do on both sides of the ball — meaning Shanahan will come out on the attack. For that reason, I love Jimmy Garoppolo’s prop of over 226 yards passing. So that’s going to be my “best bet” for this game.
My prediction was 23-21, San Francisco. That was too low. My revised prediction is now 27, 24, Niners.
