Back in Week 18 of the regular NFL season, the San Francisco 49ers took to the SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles to fight for life in their playoffs.
After going 17-0 at the start of the second half, the Niners kept chipping, eventually winning 27-24 in extra time to give them the sixth seed of the season, and dropping the Rams to the No. 3 .
As it turns out, things are going perfect for everyone as both teams are now facing each other for the third time for a spot in the online Super Bowl.
These are the opening odds for the match, provided by WynnBET Sportsbook.
The 49ers had Sean McVay’s number both times this season, beating them 31-10 in Week 9 in Santa Clara, and then back to winning 27-24 in Week 18 in LA.
Come to think of it, Shanahan’s boys beat the Rams in six straight games!
Unfortunately for the Niners, that streak ends on Sunday.
The Rams have been throwing sinks into the house over the past few weeks; both from the 49ers in their comeback win was much more important to the Rams, and LA almost became the second team to take a four-ball lead in the playoffs for Tom Brady before Matthew Stafford completed the shot. his most important throw. Long NFL career for Cooper Kupp downfield.
If you didn’t think the Rams would have the return of the new 49ers on their minds after almost becoming a meme on Sunday afternoon, think again.
There is also the Matthew Stafford story unfolding before our eyes. Despite years of being stuck in the mud in Detroit, Stafford was king back during his time in the league.
Through NFL Research, Stafford leads all quarterbacks in game wins since 2009; and that includes post-season games, which he’s only played in FIVE his entire 13-year career.
Stafford and the Rams are unbeaten as he hasn’t thrown a single intercept this season. So far in the post-season, he’s led 2-0, with 568 yards of passes, four touchdowns and no picks.
The 49ers combine perfectly with the Packers and get the perfect break when they need it.
I don’t see another major break happening anymore.
Return to the Rams to become only the second team to ever play a Super Bowl at their home for the second year in a row after having not happened in the previous 55 years.
LEAN: Rams -3.5 (-105)
