We’re rapidly approaching our trip to Super Bowl 56 with two exciting conference championships to pave the way in the week to come. The 49ers and Rams will face off in the NFC Championship this year, with kickoff set for 6:40 on Sunday, January 30th.
The 49ers upset the Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers in the first two playoff games to reach the NFC championship, while the Rams took care of the Arizona Cardinals at home before holding on against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the divisional round.
Opening point spread: Rams -3.5
Opening point total: 47.5
Opening moneyline: Rams -180, 49ers +155
Early pick ATS: Rams -3.5
It’s hard to beat a team three times in a single season. It’s even harder to do so after the final game of the regular season, where the Rams remember what happened after going up 17-0. The 49ers are going to be able to move the ball better, but the motivation of a home Super Bowl will be too much to overcome for Kyle Shanahan and company. Back Sean McVay, Matthew Stafford and the Rams at home.
