After yet another enthralling few days in the National Football League, Week 4 officially comes to a close tonight. But before that, we have a good old-fashioned divisional showdown between the Los Angeles Rams and their arch-rivals, the San Francisco 49ers.
Without further ado, let’s take a deep dive and examine some best bets to add a bit of razzle dazzle to your Monday night viewing pleasure.
Best Bet No. 1: Jeff Wilson Jr. Over 25 Receiving Yards (+330)
It hasn’t taken very long for Wilson to establish himself as a key piece in the 49ers’ offense. Although the Niners have gotten off to a slow start in 2022, Wilson has been a pleasant surprise in the Bay area. Last week against the Denver Broncos saw Wilson rush for 75 yards on the ground while adding another 31 through the air. All in all, the Elkhart, Tex., native has now eclipsed the 100-yard plateau in consecutive weeks. He’s tough as nails, a powerful runner, and the perfect complementary piece for Jimmy Garoppolo under center. At +330, this is a no-brainer for a San Francisco team who will need to “shake things up” against LA’s high-octane defense. Circle back on Wilson to grab 25 years through the air tonight.
Best Bet No. 2: Allen Robinson Over 50 Receiving Yards (+170)
After last season’s Super Bowl triumph, the LA Rams further supplemented their offense with the acquisition of Allen Robinson in the offseason. After signing a hefty $46.5 million deal, Robinson’s tenure as a Ram has gotten off to an underwhelming start, to say the least. However, the narrative surrounding Robinson will change this evening on the road in San Francisco. Look for Matthew Stafford to quickly establish L.A.’s offense and rhythm with the likes of Cooper Kupp and Robinson. 50 yards seems like a low bar for an offensive weapon as talented as this one. Heck, Robinson may even lead the Rams’ offense in Week 4. Lock this one in as soon as you can, football fans.
Best Bet No. 3: Rams Money Line (+105)
Although the 49ers have played the Rams extremely tough over the past few seasons (having defeated them in seven of their past 10 meetings), the Rams at plus money (and as road underdogs) are super intriguing. To add insult to injury, the Niners are plagued by injuries with the likes of Trey Lance, Azeez Al-Shaair, Tyler Kroft, Trent Williams, and Tarvarius Moore all being ruled out. After a complete dud to open up the season, the Rams have bounced back nicely and should win their third consecutive game tonight. Factor in the high-powered offense with the likes of Cam Akers, Kupp, Stafford, and Robinson, and it’s the perfect storm for the Rams. Perhaps Vegas favored the wrong team in this one. Ride with the defending Super Bowl champs here, folks.
