Why the Rams can cover
The Rams needed a pick-me-up ahead of Week 13 after and gained momentum with their win. While they’re up against one of the NFL’s best teams against the spread, the hosts haven’t been strong at home. In fact, both of Arizona’s losses have come at home, and the Cardinals are just 2-3 against the spread at State Farm Field.
Los Angeles finished Week 13 ranked third in passing yards and second in passing touchdowns (30). The Rams also ranked fifth in points per game (28). While their receiving corps has been weekend by Robert Woods’ season-ending knee injury, Odell Beckham Jr. and Van Jefferson are starting to prove that they can be quality replacements alongside Cooper Kupp. Los Angeles is 5-0 straight-up and against the spread in its last five road games against Arizona.
Why Cardinals can cover
