San Fran has Been Surprisingly Strong in Season Openers

Since 2011, the San Francisco 49ers are a perfect 5-0 SU and ATS in five season openers. Blaine Gabbert beat out Colin Kaepernick for the starting job this preseason, and is set to start the game in this Monday night contest against the Los Angeles Rams. San Francisco is just 3-8 SU in its last 11 games against NFC opponents.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Rams' last 3 games against the 49ers.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 8 of the 49ers' last 10 games against their division.
  • The Rams are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games on the road.

The Los Angeles Rams are 3-11 ATS in their last 14 Week 1 games. The Rams have also struggled in recent seasons on the road against the 49ers, going just 1-6-1 SU in their last eight road games against San Francisco. Los Angeles also had a quarterback battle this preseason, with Case Keenum winning the starting job over first-round pick Jared Goff.

Keenum started five games for the Rams in 2015, leading the team to a 3-2 SU and 3-1-1 ATS record in those five games. The Rams went just 4-7 SU and 4-6-1 ATS in games that Keenum did not start last season. The pressure will be on the starting quarterback to perform after the team gave up so much to trade up for Goff this offseason.
