SB Nation St. Louis continues the tour around the web for expert picks on the Week 13 matchup between the St. Louis Rams and the San Francisco 49ers. Vinnie Iyer has released his picks for this week, and here is what he has to say about the Rams:
Nothing has to give here for the 49ers to trounce their erstwhile California rivals. They have the league's best run defense; the Rams have the worst. The Niners also have the league's top scoring defense, and the Rams are No. 31 in scoring offense.
So look for San Francisco to win this one running away-literally-with Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter. On the other side, the Rams best offensive option, Steven Jackson, won't find much room to rumble.
49ers 30, Rams 0.
As for the other NFC West teams, Iyer has taken the Dallas Cowboys to beat the Arizona Cardinals 34-17, and was correct in picking the Seattle Seahawks to beat the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday.
Iyer is 118-58 for the year-to-date, and went 12-4 straight up in Week 12.
