San Francisco 49ers vs St. Louis Rams Line

Published on September 26th, 2013 5:34 pm EST
The stumbling San Francisco 49ers, led by a struggling Colin Kaepernick, will travel to St. Louis to do battle with the Rams on Thursday Night Football this week.

This is a key NFC West clash, as both the Rams and 49ers are currently sitting at 1-2. If either team has any hope of keeping pace with the Seattle Seahawks, who are currently a perfect 3-0, they will need to win this game tonight.

The San Francisco 49ers are the favorites tonight, despite the fact that they will be playing away from home. Here is the current betting line:

San Francisco, -3, -120
St. Louis, +3, +100

So, according to these odds, a successful $120 wager on the 49ers, minus the 3 points, would yield a total profit of $100, while a successful $100 bet on the Rams, plus the 3 points, would return a total profit of $100.

The money line, which represents the odds to win the game straight up, currently looks like this:

San Francisco, -170
St. Louis, +150

Given the 49ers struggles over the past two weeks (losing badly at Seattle and badly at home to the Colts), many people are surprised that they are the favorites tonight. However, the general line of thinking seems to be that the 49ers are the better team and will get things back on track one of these days.

The over/under for this game is currently set at 42.5 points:

Over 42.5 points, -110
Under 42.5 points, -110


Finally, let's look at the five players who are most likely to score a touchdown tonight. Four out of the top five players, as you will notice, play for the 49ers:

Frank Gore, -110
Anquan Boldin, +110
Vernon Davis, +110
Colin Kaepernick, +138
Jared Cook, +138


Which one of these teams will be able to rebound and pull off the victory tonight?
