The San Francisco 49ers are a better team, a more talented team and a more motivated team than the St. Louis Rams in Week 17, and the odds makers have been sure to acknowledge that fact. SB Nation's partner, Odds Shark, has released odds for Week 17 in the NFL, and the 49ers opened at 10.5 point favorites to win the game. Since the spread has opened, it has moved up to 11 and 12 points on several sites tracked by Odds Shark.
With quarterback Sam Bradford in serious doubt for the game, odds makers expect a fairly low-scoring affair. The over/under for the game opened at 36 points and has moved down to 35.5 since that time. The 49ers defense has been stout all season long, and the Rams offense has been nothing short of an embarrassment most weeks. To reach the over it would likely take a blowout by the 49ers, coupled with a garbage-time touchdown from the Rams.
