Los Angeles Rams Football Betting Guide And Favorites
It remains to be seen whether or not the Los Angeles Rams made a mistake by drafting former Cal quarterback Jared Goff with the No. 1 overall pick a year ago while possibly compounding their mistake by hiring the youngest head coach in NFL history this offseason.
Whether or not the Rams’ brass made a mistake by drafting Goff and hiring Sean McVay, there are a handful of must-bet games dotting L.A.’s 2017 schedule that no football betting enthusiast should miss out on.
Thanks to some expert analysis on a half-dozen matchups that fit the ‘must-bet’ bill, you’re going to have a great chance to cash in on at least six Rams games this coming season. Let’s get started.
A Closer Look At The Los Angeles Rams Football Betting Guide And Favorites
Redskins (-2) at Rams
Analysis: I’m interested in this Week 2 matchup if only because new Rams head coach Scott McVay will be going up against his former team in a matchup that I expect to be a high-scoring shootout. The former Skins offensive coordinator gets his first win in this contest!
Pick: Rams 31 Redskins 28
Rams at Cowboys (-12.5)
Analysis: This Week 4 clash won’t be very competitive since Dallas is much better than Los Angeles at the moment. However, I’m interested to see just how Jared Goff performs opposite Dak Prescott, one of two quarterbacks that the Rams should have clearly taken before their former Cal star with the No. 1 overall pick. Still, I’m thinking the Rams will narrowly cover the spread.
Pick: Cowboys 35 Rams 24
Seahawks (-6) at Rams
For me, this Week 5 NFC West divisional battle will be very revealing if only because the Rams gave Seattle the hardest way to go under former head coach Jeff Fisher – even if they did go belly up against almost everyone else during his now bygone era. The Seahawks will get the road win and easy ATS cover by scaring the hell out of what I believe will be a shaky Jared Goff.
Pick: Seahawks 28 Rams 17
Rams at Jaguars (-3.5)
This Week 6 matchup has to be one of the few games that Los Angeles is circling on their calendar as a game they should win. I’m going to advise you to back the Rams for one big reason. While Jared Goff looked pretty mediocre as a rookie after getting off the bench late last season, Jacksonville’s Blake Bortles has looked that way for the vast majority of the last three seasons. L.A. holds it down at home people!
Pick: Rams 28 Jaguars 27
Saints (-2) at Rams
I’m thinking this Week 12 matchup against Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints is a must-bet matchup if only because Brees is going to light it up in an effort to teach L.A.’s Jared Goff how to really play the quarterback position. The Saints cruise to victory in something of a high-scoring affair.
Pick: Saints 38 Rams 24
Eagles (-1.5) at Rams
This Week 14 matchup will be a good football betting test to see just how fare Goff has come seeing as how he’ll be going up against Philly’s Carson Wentz, the guy drafted right behind the No. 1 overall pick. Unfortunately for the Rams, Wentz looked light years ahead of Goff last season.
Pick: Eagles 31 Rams 23
