Rams 31, Saints 27
Moneyline ( ?)
The Rams are 8-1 SU in their last nine home games and looked good in tough conditions Sunday against the Panthers on the road. This will be a close game, but the Rams are the better team on paper. Take them on the moneyline at -143. It’s worth the price.
Against the Spread ( ?)
The Rams are favored by 2.5 points (-120) over the Saints as the home team. They’ve been excellent against NFC opponents at home since Sean McVay took over as head coach, going 5-0 ATS in their last five. Give the points and feel good about the Rams covering at home.
Over/Under ( ?)
The highest over/under of the week lies on the Rams-Saints matchup at 52.5 points. Yes, it’s a high number, but both teams possess high-powered offenses and can score almost at will when in a rhythm. Playing in a fairly calm environment like the Coliseum is a benefit for both offenses, too. The Rams came out firing in Week 1 with a pass-heavy attack early, so expect much of the same Sunday. Take the OVER (-115) – and not just because life’s too short to bet the under.
