St. Louis at San Francisco

4 units on St. Louis +7 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64) RESULT: LOSS
It seems that all hope is lost in St. Louis. Who would've guessed at the beginning of this season that they would be a touchdown dog at any time during the 2002 season? They are 0-4, having lost their last game as a 12 point favorite. It doesn't get much worse than that, folks. But, to make matters worse, their star QB is out. What perfect timing for the unexpected! Teams that have failed to cover the spread for several games in a row are excellent bets. After being humiliated last week, expect them to come out fighting. Remember what a humiliated Dallas club did the week following an excruciating loss to the expansion Texans in week 1? They came out and whooped a favored Titans team. The shake-up of a new QB may not be such a bad thing right now as Warner was playing horribly. It will be hard for San Francisco not to take this battered St. Louis team somewhat lightly. For the first time this season, the Rams have hit rock-bottom and I expect them to come out playing their best.
