San Francisco-Los Angeles: Rams open up as 2.5-point favorites on the road

The San Francisco 49ers may not be a favorite in any one of their 16 games this week. They're 0-2, but their Week 2 loss in Seattle didn't look as bad as many originally thought.

The Rams on the other hand are 1-1, after taking the opener against an Andrew Luck-less Colts and dropping the second game at home against Washington. Week 2 was close for Los Angeles, hence I understand why they'd be favorites in this road divisional game.

Spread: San Francisco +2.5

O/U: 40 points

Moneyline: San Francisco +110, Los Angeles (N) -130

The odds have been set by OddsShark and I think that the 49ers can beat the spread this week and actually win this game at home. Their defense is confident after their close loss against Seattle and they always seem to have the Rams' number.

I think Jared Goff and the Rams will struggle heading on the road in a short week and drop this game.
