Our Selection : The 49ers losing 3 straight wasn’t something that many bettors would have thought going into the 2013/2014 NFL season. We here at Bettorsplace.com thought that 3 or 4 would be the total loses in the year. Now our opinion is that San Francisco will fall to St. Louis on Thursday. The 49ers are beat up and are only a shell of themselves on defense with LB’s Smith out and Willis likely out as well. The Rams won the season series last season with a deadlocked 24-24 in San Francisco followed by a 16-13 win at home. St. Louis while only 1-2 has improved this season especially on offense with Bradford finally having some weapons. Look for the Rams to have an easy time with the 49ers and get not only the point spread cover, but the straight up win.
