The San Francisco 49ers and the Los Angeles Rams meet for the third and final time this season in the 2022 NFC Championship Game. The 49ers have dominated the Rams of late, but do the experts online also believe that the Niners can complete the 3-0 sweep of Los Angeles to advance to the Super Bowl for the second time in three seasons?
NitroBetting is ready to equip its bettors with the latest news, NFL odds, and previews for the entirety of the 2022 NFL Playoffs. This time, let’s take a look at what some of the best football experts on the web have predicted for the outcome of the highly-anticipated San Francisco 49ers vs. Los Angeles Rams 2022 NFC Championship Game, as well as the latest odds for this blockbuster matchup.
Expert Predictions to Win the 2022 NFC Championship
Geoff Scwhartz Rams of FOX sports sees the Rams winning outright, but with the 49ers covering the spread as (+3.5) underdogs. Schwartz indicated that the familiarity between the two NFC West rivals will make this another tight contest and with Matthew Stafford’s clutch showing against Tom Brady and the Buccaneers being the catalyst yet again for Los Angeles’ success.
Meanwhile, Sporting News’ Bill Bender predicted that the Rams will beat the Niners with a final score of 26-21, and with LA covering the spread as favorites in this situation.
Bender even goes as far as predicting that the Rams will seal the one-possession victory with a late San Francisco interception, as Stafford finally makes a deserving first-ever trip to the Super Bowl. Bender also recalls that the Rams choked away their chance to stave off the Niners from the postseason in the final week of the regular season, but Sean McVay and his boys will get their vengeance with a less-sloppier effort this time around.
Using amazing technology to deliver precise analytical data, FiveThirtyEight’s NFL prediction program calculated that the Rams have a win probability of 64 percent. However, it’s worth noting that the Niners have been given a win probability of 35 percent or less in each of their last four games, including their Week 18 clash versus Los Angeles. And yet, San Fran has defied the odds time and again this postseason and are also undefeated against the Rams in six straight meetings.
The site also made use of their renowned Elo system and predicted that the Rams’ Elo point spread is -4, which is right about the same odds given by oddsmakers to date.
