The Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs was full of excitement and crazy endings, but it is now time to move on to the Conference Championships. The NFC Championship will pit the San Francisco 49ers against the Los Angeles Rams after both teams kicked a walk-off field goal in the previous round.

FanDuel Sportsbook's opening odds for this contest favor the Rams by just a few points.

49ers Rams Odds

The Rams are 3.5-point favorites with -104 odds to cover the spread. The 49ers own -118 odds to cover as 3.5-point road underdogs.

Los Angeles is listed as a -180 moneyline favorite to win this game, while San Francisco is at +150 to pull off the upset. The over/under in this matchup is listed at 46.5 points, with -110 odds on both the over and under.

Of course, these two teams know one another very well given they both play in the NFC West division. San Francisco has had the upper hand as of late, defeating Los Angeles in each of their last six head-to-head matchups. The 49ers swept the Rams in 2021 by a combined score of 58-34.

LA quarterback Matthew Stafford threw 3 touchdowns against San Francisco in Week 18, yet also tossed 2 crucial interceptions in an overtime loss.

This matchup is filled with strong defensive playmakers including defensive linemen like Aaron Donald and Nick Bosa. There's a reason the Rams and 49ers both finished amongst the top 10 teams in total DVOA rating as well as opponent yards per play.

It's safe to say that the players involved in this NFC West showdown will be giving it everything they got with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line.
