For the Los Angeles Rams, they are coming off a loss on the road at the Minnesota Vikings last weekend. The RAms are 7-3 on the season, and 3-2 at home. The Rams lead Seattle by a game in the divisional standings.

Rams Looking to Gain Traction

The Los Angeles Rams were rolling heading into their trip to Minneapolis. Case Keenum and the Minnesota Vikings slowed them down, holding the Rams to just a single touchdown. The Rams are one of the top scoring teams in all of the National Football League with 30.3 points per game.

The offense is led by second year quarterback Jared Goff. The signal caller has been outstanding with more than 2,600 yards and 16 touchdowns. Goff’s top target Robert Woods is out for a few weeks with an injury. Todd Gurley is the leading rusher for the Rams, with 791 yards and 8 touchdowns on the ground.

Saints Looking for 9th Straight Win

The New Orleans Saints have won 8 straight. Sean Payton saw his team come from behind to beat the Washington Redskins last weekend. The Saints opened the season with back to back losses at the Vikings and with the Patriots, and then caught fire from there. The Saints have scored 302 points and allowed 196 on the season.

Drew Brees keeps things moving on offense, with 2,783 passing yards and 15 touchdowns. Brees has found Michael Thomas most often with 753 receiving yards, but just 2 touchdowns. The running game has been sensational for the Saints as well, with both Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram running the way.

Rams Down Saints

The Los Angeles Rams are back home, and know they need to come away with a win. The Rams are a game ahead of Seattle, but the Seahawks beat them earlier this season. That means the Seahawks would own the tiebreaker as of right now. Sean McVay is going to have his team ready to play in this game, and slow down a red hot New Orleans Saints team.

Look for points to be scored. Both teams can score, and neither has a defense that is outstanding. When you are betting this game on Sunday – take the Los Angeles Rams -3 over the New Orleans Saints.  Bet on the Los Angeles Rams -3 at MyBookie.
