Trying to return to Super Bowl for the second time in three years, the San Francisco 49ers take on the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday at 3:40 PM PST.

WynnBET has the 49ers as 3.5-point underdogs and +150 on the moneyline (bet $10 to win $15) while the over/under is set at 46.5.

There is one trend bettors absolutely need to know that gives us incredible value in this matchup.

49ers Betting Trend

The 49ers under Kyle Shanahan have been incredible as road underdogs. Since the start of the 2019 season, San Francisco is 11-4 against the spread (ATS) as road underdogs and 10-5 straight up. They’re getting better in these spots too, winning five of their last six outright games as road dogs.

Shanahan seems to have Rams’ coach Sean McVay’s number too, as the 49ers are 6-0 straight up and 5-1 ATS against the Rams since 2019.

But it isn’t just Shanahan that has a history of success in these situations. With a win over the Packers last week, Jimmy Garoppolo moved to 15-4 ATS and 14-5 outright as an underdog in his career. That’s the best mark for a quarterback in NFL history.

With both a coach and quarterback with unparalleled success in this spot, I love the 49ers +3.5 and to win outright at +150.

Don’t question history, just be happy oddsmakers are still letting us take advantage of the incredible value this trend presents.

If you want to join me and enjoy the best underdog bet you can make, go to WynnBET to make your bet now. Don’t wait though, I wouldn’t be surprised if this line closes at 3 and as bettors, we always want the best line possible.
