Vikings at Rams (LAR -7) Prediction
Vikings at Rams (LAR -7)
Bet: Rams -7
I love the Rams here in this one, I am all in on the Rams this year and they have very much lived up to my expectations. They are loaded at every level. Offense, Defense and special teams. They have one of the best coaches in the league and they are playing at home. They have crushed their first 3 opponents, including a Charger team last week who i thought could be a potential Superbowl contender out of the AFC. The Rams were 7 point favorites in that game as well. So Far this year, the Rams are 3-0 vs the spread.
The Vikings are coming off an absolutely embarrassing loss to the Bills at home. The Vikings were 16 point favorites but lost 27 - 6. The Vikings, you could argue, has just as much depth as the Rams. Outside of Todd Gurley and Aaron Donald, their basically the same team right? NOPE. and yes Vikings fans, Kirk Cousins is better than Case Keenum, but he is new to a system of a new offensive coordinator who doesn’t have much experience with the pieces of the Vikings offense.
For this game the Vikings are travelling across country on a short week. Their RB Dalvin Cook is doubtful to play due to injury and the Vikings O-line is below average. The Rams are going to be in Cousins face all game and their running game will struggle mightily against the Rams defensive line. The Rams could be without both star corners Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib But the Rams will still win comfortably.
Bet LAR -7
Final Score: Rams 27 - Vikings 16
