49ers vs Rams Prediction, Odds & Best Bets (Can the Rams Finally Get a Regular-Season Win Against the 49ers?)
49ers vs Rams Week 8 Game Info
Week 8 of the 2022 NFL season includes an NFC West showdown between the San Francisco 49ers and LA Rams. The 49ers are figuring out how to rebound after getting blown out, 44-23, by the Kansas City Chiefs last week despite running back Christian McCaffrey's arrival.
Meanwhile, the Rams return to the field this week following their bye. They were victorious with a 24-10 win over the Carolina Panthers in their last outing, leaving time to tell if that was the start of better times or a brief pause from the team's recent losing ways.

49ers vs Rams Prediction & Pick
This week marks the second 49ers-Rams clash of the season. The two rivals met back in Week 4, resulting in a 24-9 home victory for San Francisco. Unfortunately for Rams fans, I expect a similar result this weekend.
While the 49ers have looked shaky in recent weeks, I'm expecting a better effort now that McCaffrey will have had more practices with the team. The dual-threat RB is a game-changer in every sense of the word and already has 367 total yards from scrimmage with a pair of touchdowns in two all-time meetings against the Rams.
Besides, Los Angeles still has a ton to overcome. QB Matthew Stafford's eight interceptions are the second-most this season, while the backfield is a mess now that Cam Akers is on his way out of the team. With the Rams' only win in October coming against the lowly Panthers, there isn't a good reason to be confident in the defending Super Bowl champs.
Including the fact that the 49ers have won eight of their last nine games against the Rams, I like San Francisco's odds of a road win here.
Final Score Prediction: 49ers: 27 | Rams: 23

49ers vs Rams Best Bet
Again, the 49ers have won more often than they've lost against the Rams lately. In fact, you have to go back to December 2018 for the last time that San Francisco lost to Los Angeles on the road. Since then, the 49ers have beaten the Rams by at least three points in each of the aforementioned victories.
With a fully-integrated CMC giving them a boost, I'm backing the 49ers to cover the 1.5-point spread as road favorites.
Bet: 49ers -1.5 (-108)
