For Rams vs. 49ers on Monday Night Football this week, I took a look at the numbers and found three noteworthy lines that stood out against their betting lines.
Over 22.5 Rushing Yards
The Rams backfield is a mystery at this point.
Last week against the Cardinals, Henderson was the first man up and ran four times for 17 yards, all in the first 16 minutes of game time. He didn’t get another carry. Still, he came very close to hitting this number. Just a couple more carries, and Henderson likely clears 22.5.
He’s getting mentioned here because Action Labs loves him tonight, to the tune of a projected 30 rushing yards. It might seem like this is Cam Akers’ backfield after he broke out in Week 3, but Henderson is still very much in the mix.
The only thing we know about the Rams backfield is that we don’t know anything. Henderson’s total is the lowest it’s been all season, so it might be worth jumping on.
Under 1.5 Receptions
Speaking of Akers, he has just two catches for 18 yards this season, and all of those numbers came in Week 2 against the Falcons. Even in the Rams’ playoff run last season, Akers went under 1.5 receptions in two of the four games.
Action Labs isn’t even projecting him for one this week, with Akers pegged for 0.9 receptions. There is some juice to this one, with the under at -145 at DraftKings and -150 at FanDuel, but there’s a reason for that.
Unless the Rams fall behind early and abandon the run game, Akers is unlikely to be part of their passing attack tonight.
Over 15.5 Receiving Yards
Jauan Jennings has surprisingly been a noteworthy part of the 49ers’ offense this season. He had six targets in Week 1, second to only Deebo Samuel, and has had two and three in the Niners’ two games since.
Jennings is operating firmly as the 49ers’ No. 3 receiver, sometimes the No. 2 depending on how Samuel is being utilized. There has been a change in San Francisco’s offense with Jimmy Garoppolo under center, but Jennings is still part of the attack.
Jennings has caught only six of his 11 targets this season, a 54.5% rate that should go up. His yardage total is 15.5 at BetRivers but 16.5 at FanDuel and BetMGM. Two catches likely clears this for Jennings.
