Los Angeles Rams NFL Betting

It’s down to the nitty gritty for the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams are in line to claim the top Wild Card spot in the NFC with a 7-4 record, but they don’t have an easy schedule the rest of the way. They do get to host the winless New York Jets in Week 15, yet their remaining five games are bookended by meetings with the Arizona Cardinals with New England and Seattle in between. A loss to Arizona this week would be devastating for the Rams, as it would likely lead to Los Angeles losing potential tiebreakers with every other team in the NFC West.

Los Angeles Rams Week 13 Matchup

Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals have one of the most exciting offenses in the NFL. The Cardinals are second in the league in total offense (403.7 YPG), and that has made this team a playoff contender after a dismal 2019 season. Bringing in DeAndre Hopkins for a pittance was the steal of the century, and it will draw consternation from Houston fans for at least the next five years.

Murray has completed 68.2 percent of his passes for 7.3 YPA with 19 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He is still making some mistakes as a passer, but those are more than overcome by his prowess as a runner. Murray has run for 650 yards and 10 touchdowns, averaging 6.7 YPC to make Arizona the most efficient running team.

As for Hopkins, there is a reason he has been selected First Team All-Pro for three straight seasons. He has 77 receptions for 967 yards and four touchdowns, and he currently ranks second in the NFC in receiving yards behind D.K. Metcalf. His matchup with Jalen Ramsey will be a good one provided Ramsey is healthy.

Ramsey is currently considered questionable after missing a lot of snaps last week against San Francisco. He is the best cornerback in the NFL, and he is one of the few cornerbacks that can take Hopkins out of the game. His presence will be vital to the Rams’ gameplan since the Cardinals don’t have a good No. 2 receiver.

At this point, you know what you are going to get from Jared Goff. Goff isn’t the most consistent quarterback in the world, but he has largely been above average during his time under Sean McVay. He is completing 67.2 percent of his passes for 7.5 YPA with 16 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods are the two leading receivers. Kupp has been really hit or miss though, alternating 50-yard performances with 100-yard days over the last five weeks. Woods has been a little more reliable, and he has been targeted 27 times in the past two games.

The ground game is solid with three young running backs. The Rams are averaging 124.6 YPG on the ground, and that has helped take the pressure off Goff.

One of the most surprising stories this year has been Arizona’s defense. The Cardinals lost sack master Chandler Jones to a season-ending injury early on, but they have rallied to rank 11th in defensive DVOA coming into this week’s game.

Los Angeles Rams Week 12 Recap

Goff did not play well in last week’s 23-20 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. He completed 19 of 31 passes for only 198 yards, and he turned the ball over three times. Javon Kinlaw returned one of his interceptions for a 27-yard touchdown just after halftime to extend the 49ers’ lead to 11 points.

Cam Akers had a 61-yard run to set up a score, but the Rams were otherwise unable to do much on the ground. If you take out that long run, the Rams combined to carry the ball 27 times for 65 yards against San Francisco’s front seven.

The Rams did look good on defense in defeat. They did allow Deebo Samuel to catch 11 passes for 133 yards, as Jalen Ramsey’s snaps were limited due to a hip issue. However, the 49ers were largely held in check aside from that, and Aaron Donald forced a fumble that was returned for a touchdown in the third quarter.
