Talk about screwy lines! San Francisco is a playoff team that won by 42 points last game. St. Louis kind of... well... sucks. The public can’t seem to understand this. This was the year that St. Louis was supposed to “be back.” Mike Martz can’t coach. How do you hand the ball to one of the best running backs of all time so little? Hello! McFly! If they would just get the ball in Marshall Faulk’s hands 25-30x per game, they could win the Super Bowl. But they don’t. The only thing that scares me a bit here is that Marc Bulger will be taking the snaps for St. Louis. He is the better QB in Missouri right now and St. Louis is a better team with him. But, I still think SF will cover this one. Some might argue that San Francisco will be flat after such a high-flying performance. Don’t count on it. Road teams that score the most points the previous week and win by a ton do very well ATS the next game, covering about 3 out of every 4. Take SF and the points.
