The Vegas line for Thursday Night Football differs from the opening line, which showed the Rams as the TNF football betting favorite. Thursday Night Football kicks off at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara California at 8:15PM, when the 0-2 San Francisco 49ers host the 1-1 Los Angeles Rams.
The LA Rams QB Jared Goff leads the Rams on their first NFL picks contest on the road for the 2017 NFL season. WR Todd Gurley hurdled his way to 136 total all purpose yards and 2 touchdowns in week 2. TE Gerald Everett had 3 rec for 95 yards including a 69 yarder. Goff also has Rookie WR Cooper Kupp and Rookie WR Josh Reynolds to target down field along with 4 year veteran Sammy Watkins. The offensive line cannot give up 3 fumbles to the 49ers like they did last week in their 27-20 loss versus the Redskins. The Rams and head coach Sean McVay have a short week to prepare for the 49ers, which means no time off for the players to rest. Also the lack of information on the 49ers with a new coaching staff, new personnel and new strategies makes it hard to prepare for this matchup and also makes it difficult to make the correct Thursday Night Football pick. But don’t sell L.A. short, they have the talent, if the coordinators tell the players what to do, they definitely have the talent to carry it out.
According to the current Vegas lines posted by odds makers, the Rams are the NFL betting favorites, with a -3( EVEN) or -2(-112) point spread depending on the respective sportsbook you choose to make your NFL picks with and the 49ers as the home dog at +3(-120) or +2(-108) respectively. The over/under has the Rams 40(-105)o and the 49ers 40(-115) u. Take a peak at the current Vegas betting trends on this Thursday Night Football picks contest shown below.
The 49ers coming off a lost against the Seahawks with an injury to safety Eric Reid that will keep him out for a few weeks puts a damper on their defense. Despite losing Reid San Francisco’s defense showed skill. They held their opponents to 6 first half points. The 49ers pass rush put constant pressure on Wilson. The 49ers swept the series versus the Rams in the 2016 NFL season and have the players for a repeat performance. K Robbie Gould was the only scorer in week 2 and you don’t win games that way. The game high rushing leader was Carlos Hyde with 124 yards including a 61 yard run and Pierre Garcon and Marquise Goodwin led receivers with 26 yards a piece. On defense DeForest Buckner had 9 QB pressures and two run stops.
