Here are my three best prop bets in the NFL odds tonight for the match between San Francisco 49ers vs. St. Louis Rams. Let’s see if we can cap off the week with some winning NFL picks. 

Frank Gore O/U 82.5 rush yards
With tonight’s St. Louis Rams and San Francisco 49ers game, everyone is remembering games from 2012 where they tied, and even before that when the games ended with spreads of one score. However last season the Rams were demolished by the 49ers, and that might end up happening again tonight. If indeed the Niners are able to run up the score against the Rams, Frank Gore will be a big reason why.

Gore has been utilized a lot this season, and he is currently sitting just outside of the top ten rushing leaders this season. The catch is they all have played one more game than he has, and after tonight, if he can muster up 83 rushing yards or more, he will easily cash this prop, and he will be inside the top five in rushing yards this season. The Rams should help that. Right now only one team has given up more rushing yards than the Rams this season, and if the Niners can pull out to an early lead, Gore should get a ton of work. He has great NFL odds value tonight, and I am taking the dive.

Colin Kaepernick TD Scored
This one is for all of the NFL picks gamblers out there, because bet365 has Kaepernick’s NFL odds value of scoring a rushing (or receiving) touchdown tonight at +250. Sure, quarterbacks don’t normally score too many of those, but Kaepernick has the legs to do it. Even though he has yet to score a rushing touchdown this season, the Rams might be the team to give one up. Along with a few other teams, the Rams have already given up two rushing touchdowns to quarterbacks this season. Also as I mentioned above, the Rams are giving up about 152 rushing yards per game, and even though they have only given up one rushing touchdown to opposing running backs, I think Kaepernick will rush his way into the end zone. It is a long shot, so it definitely isn’t for the faint at heart, but it’s solid value on Monday Night Football.

Race to 25 points
This prop is another one that may not even happen because the game could be very low scoring, but the NFL odds value of the Niners getting to 25 points first is pretty good. At +160, if the Niners can get to 25 points before the Rams, it might constitute the biggest NFL picks steal of the night. The Rams’ defense is good, but they can’t stop the run, and that’s the Niners’ bread and butter. Even if the Rams can show up with their offense, it won’t be like last week against the weak Eagles’ defense. Even though the Giants couldn’t seem to score on the Eagles last night, their defense still is not that great. In the games where the Niners actually got to 25 points or more, they won the race both times, and I think they’ll do it for a third time here on national television. Take the Niners, and add them to your NFL picks.
