NFL Playoffs Tips and Previews, Mon 31 Jan


There will be no love lost between these NFC West rivals when the Los Angeles Rams face off against the San Francisco 39ers in the NFC Championship playoff fixture. 

The winner of this game goes on to the Super Bowl, and the 49ers will be hoping recent history will be on their side.

San Francisco boasts a six-game winning streak against the Rams heading into this contest with the most recent meeting between the teams resulted in a thrilling 27-24 overtime victory for San Francisco on January 9. 

The win clinched a playoff spot for the 49ers, so the memories of that game will be fresh and fond. 

But the Rams now have a chance to make things right between themselves and their divisional foes. 

Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford was as slick as ever with ball-in-hand last week against Tampa Bay. 

Stafford threw for two touchdowns and gained 366 yards converting 28 passes out of 28 attempts. 

When comparing quarterback positions, Stafford has outplayed Garropolo convincingly throughout the playoffs from a numbers perspective. 

Garropolo has been lucky his defence has stood tall in the face of adversity. 

If the 49ers defence can stand up again and stop the running game of the Rams, as it did back on January 9, then they have a sniff of making the Super Bowl. 

But the Rams are equally as good, if not better, at stopping the running game of opposition. 

The Rams boast the more prolific offense, and while they tried to find every way possible to lose that game against the Bucs, they were able to make a couple of plays in the end to secure the victory.

Siding with Los Angeles to break their losing streak against the 49ers in a game that is set to be a titanic battle. 

Suggested Bet: Los Angeles -3.5 at $1.92
