NFC Championship picks: Who the experts are taking in Rams vs. 49ers

The Rams Wire

Few people could’ve seen the 49ers’ six-game winning streak against the Rams coming. The Rams were favored in five of those games, which shows how stunning this run by San Francisco has been.

These two NFC West foes will meet in the conference championship on Sunday, just the second playoff game ever between the Rams and 49ers. The Rams would love to end their losing streak to San Francisco now more than ever, knowing there’s a spot in the Super Bowl on the line.

Do the experts believe the Rams can snap the skid or are they taking the 49ers to keep rolling? According to NFL Pick Watch, 70% are taking the Rams to beat the 49ers straight up. When it comes to the spread, it’s an even 50-50 split. Half of the experts are taking the Rams to cover the 3.5-point spread, with the other half believing the 49ers will cover.

The Rams have failed to cover the spread in five of their last six games against the 49ers, but they can change that misfortune by beating the 49ers by at least four points on Sunday.
