The NFC Conference Championship has more bettors torn than the AFC Conference Championship game. The Los Angeles Rams have lost two straight games to the San Francisco 49ers this season, however, the Rams are still 3.5 point favorites against the 49ers in tonight's game, at home. This has so many NFL fans and bettors torn on who exactly will win this game.

Here are the most popular bets for the San Francisco 49ers vs Los Angeles Rams Conference Championship Round match-up via Bet MGM.

Rams -3.5 @ -110 (Bet $110 to win $100)

Rams -3.557%48%
49ers +3.543%52%

The Rams opened as a -3.5 point favorite and haven't moved since. While Los Angeles is getting 57 percent of the bets, more of the betting handle is on the 49ers at 52 percent via Bet MGM.

This means that smaller bets are on the Rams but bigger bets are backing the 49ers at +3.5.

The Rams look much better than they've looked all year on the defensive end and the offense did enough against Tom Brady and the Buccaneers last week to earn an NFC Conference Championship appearance. However, the Rams have struggled to run the football against the 49ers this season and if that continues, it'll be the 49ers' game to win.

Los Angeles Rams vs. San Francisco 49ers Line Movement

Over 45.5 @ -110 (Bet $110 to win $100)

Over 45.554%45%
Under 45.546%55%

These two teams have played each other twice this season. One game would've gone over the total of 45.5 while the other game would've gone under. Most bettors are speculating that there will be more defense in this game. The total opened at 47.5 and is now currently, again, at 45.5.

The Rams held Tom Brady for an entire half last week while the 49ers have looked brilliant and really challenged Aaron Rodgers, on the road. I completely agree with the under in this game but know that both teams are so talented on offense as well.

54 percent of the bets at MGM are currently on the over but 54 percent of the handle is on the under 45.5.

Top Prop Bets for 49ers vs Rams

MGM bettors are betting on the Rams left and right in tonight's NFC Conference Championship game. MGM bettors are first backing Cooper Kupp to score the first touchdown. This is a lottery play, but a play that could clearly hit as Kupp averages about a touchdown per game. I'd be more comfortable with a bet on Kupp to score anytime, but if he scores first, MGM bettors will be eating well tonight!

Other MGM bettors are backing the other big target for the Rams. Odell Beckham has been a touchdown machine since arriving in Los Angeles. The Rams love getting their best players involved when the games matter the most so I really like a Beckham Jr. touchdown in this game.

Lastly, MGM bettors aren't fans of Cam Akers. He's rushed for an average of just 2.5 yards in two playoff games and has just over 100 yards on 41 carries. The 49ers have done very well against the Rams in the run game and have held the Rams in both games this season in the run game. I think MGM bettors are certainly onto something here.
