Madden20 Sim: Thursday, May 7, 2020 at 2:00 pm
The Line: Los Angeles Rams +4 -- Over/Under: 45
The San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams meet Thursday afternoon in a Madden20 simulation game.
The San Francisco 49ers have 10 different players who are ranked 85 overall or better. Tight end George Kittle leads the charge with a 97 overall rating and cornerback Richard Sherman has a 94 overall rating. Defensive end Nick Bosa, wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders and left tackle Joe Staley all have 89 ratings. The San Francisco 49ers are obviously one of the more balanced and highest rated teams in the game and have very little weakness. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has an 84 rating and an above-average acceleration to avoid pressure. On either side of the ball, you have to like the 49ers to show up and put together a consistent performance no matter who they play.
The Los Angeles Rams may not have accomplished much last season, but they have eight players who are ranked at least 85 overall in Madden20. Defensive tackle Aaron Donald is one of the best players in the game with a 99 overall rating and a 99 strength rating. Cornerback Jalen Ramsey is a 94 overall and 93 acceleration rating, while left tackle Andrew Whitworth is 88 overall and has a 90 awareness rating. Running back Todd Gurley has a 86 overall rating and a 91 speed rating and quarterback Jared Goff is rated 77 overall with an 86 acceleration rating. The Los Angeles Rams has one of the better wide receiver trios in this game and have a defense filled with game changers. You can win a lot in this game playing with the Los Angeles Rams.
The San Francisco 49ers have been used a lot during this simulations and it feels like they're due for a stinker. The Los Angeles Rams are a pretty solid team in this video game with a loaded defense that has some of the highest rated players on that side of the ball. We've also seen the Rams be highly successful offensively in past simulations.
There's value with the Los Angeles Rams and the free points in this contest.
