2-0. 42. Rams -3.5. 2-0. 51. 6:40 p.m. ET. Fox. Sunday, Jan. 30

The 49ers square off today against the Rams in the 2022 NFC Championship game, and we’ve got your betting odds, injuries and how you can watch live.

Just one more game stands between the San Francisco 49ers and another trip to the Super Bowl, one that would mark the second time in three seasons.

For the Niners to pull that off, though, they first have to defeat the Los Angeles Rams in the 2022 NFC Championship game, hopefully adding to a win streak they’ve carried over the last three seasons where head coach Kyle Shanahan’s squad has gone 6-0, including that thrilling overtime victory in Week 18 that ensured San Francisco would get into the playoffs in the first place.

Perhaps LA regrets not having eliminated the 49ers during that contest. Nevertheless, Sunday’s bout is far more important than any other between these two franchises, save for the 1990 NFC Championship game when the Niners beat Los Angeles en route to the Super Bowl that season.

That marks the only other time these two teams have faced each other in the NFL playoffs, and there’s little reason to doubt it’ll be a good game.

San Francisco, of course, would like it to be a one-sided victory.

49ers injury report vs. Rams NFC Championship game

The Niners are fortunate to be dealing with a relatively clean slate of health, but there’s one notable player who appeared on the team’s injury report in advance of the game:

  • LT Trent Williams (ankle): questionable
  • RB Jeff Wilson Jr. (ankle): questionable

Williams, who suffered his injury during San Francisco’s divisional-round win over the Green Bay Packers and was later seen walking on crutches, didn’t practice during the week.

If he can’t go, the Niners would likely be forced to field reserve tackles, such as Colton McKivitz or Jaylon Moore, which is quite the downgrade against a LA pass rush that netted 50 sacks during the regular season.

49ers vs. Rams odds, spread, over/under & betting pick NFC Championship game

The spread for San Francisco versus Los Angeles opened up with the 49ers being a 3.5-point underdog, according to the oddsmakers over at WynnBET, and that line hasn’t moved at all since.

Perhaps the spread stayed slightly in the Rams’ favor because of their higher seeding in the NFL playoffs’ picture, or because the Niners still aren’t quite sure about Williams’ status.

Either way, San Francisco’s moneyline is +152, whereas LA’s is -185.

The over/under for the game is 46.0.

Our initial prediction suggested the 49ers wind up making it seven wins in a row over their NFC West rivals, and there’s no reason to change that here, especially if The Faithful wind up taking over SoFI Stadium as they did in Week 18.

We predict San Francisco winning 24-20.
