2002 Season NFL Football Past Picks

December 30, 2002


San Francisco at St. Louis

Monday 12/30 09:00 PM Eastern

4 units on St. Louis +2 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64)  RESULT: WIN

As long as Tampa Bay beats Chicago on Sunday, San Francisco will have nothing to play for in this game. They locked up the division three weeks ago and can’t win home field unless Tampa Bay loses.

The 49ers will rest key players in this game, including Terrell Owens and Jeff Garcia. The Rams are also playing backups including either the third or fourth-string QB. So, stats don’t mean a whole lot in this contest. But that doesn’t mean we can’t predict the outcome.

The Rams would very much like to end a horrible season on a high note. They get a home game in front of a national audience against a team that couldn’t care less about winning this game (as long as TB wins).

The 49ers haven’t fared well in St. Louis, having lost three straight dating back to 1999. Finally, small Monday night home dogs cover the spread nearly 7 out of every 10 games.

Don’t be surprised to see a win by St. Louis.
