Los Angeles Rams NFL Week 3 Betting Lines

Los Angeles Rams NFL Betting Online

The Los Angeles Rams have been quite the surprise for NFL bettors that figured the team was DOA even before taking the field for the season opener in Seattle against the Seahawks. Though Sean McVay’s troops ultimately fell at home to the San Francisco 49ers last week, his troops didn’t get embarrassed in a game it had a shot of winning before absorbing the 30-23 defeat. Matthew Stafford looks reenergized spreading the pigskin around to his young receiving corps, while the retooled secondary hasn’t been the detriment many envisioned heading into the NFL betting season. Week 3 finds the team in Cincinnati to take on a Bengals outfit possibly without the services of Joe Burrow, and the betting market seems to like their chances!

Los Angeles Rams Week 3 Matchup

On Monday, September 25, 2023, the Los Angeles Rams will take on the Cincinnati Bengals from Paycor Stadium in Cincinnati, OH. Kickoff time for Monday Night Football is set for 8:15 p.m. ET with television coverage on ESPN. The betting odds for this non-conference clash opened with Los Angeles catching 7.5-points and the total lined 45.5. Due to the unknown availability of Joe Burrow under center for the Bengals at the time of this writing, the pointspread has plummeted all the way down to +2 with 74 percent of the bets and 84 percent of the money aligned with the visiting Rams. Should it be announced that Joey Brrr handles QB1 duties, you can expect the number to beat to shoot back up with Cincy looking to avoid falling to 0-3. The total has also taken a hit and moved to 43.5. The Rams ability to shut opposing passing attacks down has seen the team get out to a perfect 2-0 start against the closing NFL odds. That should come in handy in this matchup with Cincy currently marching out the league’s No. 30 ranked passing offense. However, the ball could be taken out of Matthew Stafford’s hands in this one due to the Bengals pass defense being the lone strength through two played games. Kyren Williams has seized control of the RB1 duties in LA’s backfield which means the light will be shined on him to see if he can take advantage of the Bengals defensive weak link that comes in stopping the run (No. 31). If able to do so, the Rams will be in this one all the way through. If not, it could be a long night as determined Cincy will be to finally tally a notch in the win column.

Los Angeles Rams Week 2 Recap

Whoa nelly did Sean McVay piss NFL bettors off that laid the points with the 49ers last week! I was one of them and sat in disbelief after the Rams head coach decided to kick a field goal on the game’s final play knowing full well he had no shot of winning the game trailing by ten points. Think he knew what the spread was on the game ;) Though the NFL odds ultimately closed +7 and the Rams lost 30-23, it only reached the flat seven before kick-off which means everyone that took the points prior cashed tickets. The end result was huge for the online sportsbook with 67 percent of the bets and 65 percent of the money aligned with the 49ers. It’s crazy to think that LA would’ve been in a better position to win the game had it not lost the turnover battle 2-0, but that’s exactly what the box score indicates. Though it allowed Christian McCaffrey to erupt for 116 yards and a score on his 20 overall carries, LA outgained San Fran 386-365, racked up 28 first downs to the Niners 21, completed 50 percent of its 14 third down tries, and owned a 7+ minute advantage in the time of possession battle. Puka Nacua also showed that he wasn’t just a one-hit wonder after hauling in 15 of a whopping 20 targets and turning them into 147 scoreless yards. This Rams passing attack could be lethal if and when Cooper Kupp returns to the fold! The 53 combined points shattered the 45.5 closing total much to the chagrin of those booking the bets with upwards of 70 percent of the action and handle expecting the game to play to a high scorer. Even in defeat, the Rams impressed with an inferior roster which goes to show just how important top notch coaching is in this day and age of the NFL.

This is the second stint of the Rams in Los Angeles, where they originally played from 1946 through 1994 before moving to St. Louis, where they operated from 1995 through 2015.

In 1999, the Rams won their first Super Bowl championship in franchise history. And then, in 2021, the Rams were Super Bowl champions for the second time. Most important of all, it was the first Super title for the Los Angeles version of the Rams.

The Rams have a rich history that began in Cleveland in 1937. The Rams moved for their first stint in Los Angeles in 1946. They won one NFL championship and played in three other championship games from 1949 through 1955.

In the late 1960s, the Rams became a power in the NFL during its golden age. The famed Fearsome Foursome was one of the most dominant defensive lines in NFL history. And quarterback Roman Gabriel was a matinee idol.

Head coach George Allen put the Rams into the playoffs in 1967 and 1969. But Los Angeles flopped in the divisional round both times. Los Angles eventually fired Allen despite being in the hunt every year he was in charge.

Check Knox and John Robinson were consistent winners as head coaches of the Rams. But a Super Bowl title proved elusive.

Since their return to LA in 2016, the Rams have been consistent winners with four playoff berths in the last five years. In 2020 the Rams moved into SoFi Stadium, the most spectacular and modern of its kind in the world.
