Why the Rams can cover
Los Angeles rolls into Monday Night Football with the fourth-ranked offense, averaging 399.3 total yards per game. This offensive unit is led by their air attack, which is ranked third (308.4). Quarterback Matthew Stafford has thrown for more than 300 yards passing in five games this season.
The Rams’ best offensive performance came in Week 5 against the Seattle Seahawks, when Los Angeles finished with 476 total yards of offense. Stafford went 25-of-37 for 365 yards and one passing touchdown. The 49ers have yet to cover the spread at home this season.
Why the 49ers can cover
Tight end George Kittle returned to the field for the first time since Week 4 last week as he recovered from a calf injury. He immediately gave the offense a boost against the Arizona Cardinals and led the team with six catches for 101 yards and a score.
Deebo Samuel is one of the top receivers in the NFL this season. Samuel is second in receiving yards (882) while reeling in a team-high 49 receptions with four touchdowns. The South Carolina product is also second in the league with 110.3 receiving yards per game. Samuel is a legitimate deep-threat weapon for San Francisco and has snagged 13 passes of 20-plus yards. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has notched back-to-back 300-yard games and will look to make it three in a row against Los Angeles.
