With the Los Angeles Rams drafting quarterback Jared Goff with the first overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft and moving to a new city, they’ve got to be poised to cash in more often than not against their NFL Lines right? Let’s find out thanks to the expert analysis you’re about to get on Goff and the Rams as they get set for the upcoming 2016 NFL regular season.
Taking a Closer Look at L.A Rams Top NFL Spreads for 2016 Season
Los Angeles at Arizona Cardinals (-7)
Analysis: I k now Los Angeles has lost four of their last five meetings against the superior Cardinals, but they also managed to split both of last season’s two regular season meetings while beating the Cards on the road 24-22 as an identical 7-point road dog tat they re in this Week 4 NFC West divisional showdown. I’m going to back the Rams, led by their elite defensive line, to pressure Carson Palmer into a rough afternoon while covering the spread in a closer-than- expected loss.
The Pick: Arizona 27 Los Angeles 21
Miami Dolphins at Los Angeles (-2)
Analysis: The Rams haven’t met the Dolphins since 2012, but they’ll be looking to snap a three-game losing streak against the Fins and I believe now is the perfect time for them to do just that.
The Dolphins lost their final two road games a year ago and four of their last five road dates overall while failing to cover the spread in each SU loss. Conversely, the Rams went 2-0 SU and ATS over their last two home games in 2015 and 4-2 SU and ATS over their last six.
More importantly, whoever starts at quarterback for the Rams in this Week 11 affair will likely be better than Miami’s Ryan Tannehill. Back the Rams to win and cash in!
The Pick: Los Angeles 28 Miami 24
Los Angeles at New England Patriots (-9)
Analysis: I know the Rams have lost four straight against the Patriots dating back o 2002 while going 1-3 ATS over the span, but I like L.A.’s powerful defensive line to get after Tom Brady in this Week 13 affair to keep the final score inside double digits. While New England has gone 9-1 SU in its last 10 games as a favorite of eight points or more, the Pats are also just 2-2 ATS over their last four such games and their pass-heavy offense should play right into the Rams; biggest strength – their pass rush. No, L.A. won’t win outright, but I like them to cover the spread.
The Pick: New England 27 Los Angeles 20
Los Angeles at Seattle Seahawks (-10)
Analysis: The Rams are clearly inferior to the elite Seattle Seahawks, but L.A. has given Russell Wilson and company the toughest time the last couple of seasons. Los Angeles won both of last season’s NFC West divisional dates against Seattle while covering the spread each time and have won three of the last four meetings overall while covering their online NFL lines in each SU win. With the Rams going 6-2 ATS against Seattle over the last eight meetings, I say, don’t be shocked when L.A. covers in this Week 15 clash!
The Pick: Seattle 27 Los Angeles 20
