The Arizona Cardinals have developed a bit of a rivalry against the Rams, owning the advantage by winning five of the last seven meetings straight up and 5-2 against the spread (ATS). The Cardinals are looking to extend that edge over the Rams, but with this game taking place overseas at Twickenham Stadium in London (when will this stop??) there is no distinct home advantage, so anything can happen here. It will really come down to who plays better in the rain, and with jet lag.

Betting on the Arizona Cardinals (3-3)
The Arizona Cardinals have a new offensive player who has changed this team for the better good as new Cardinal Adrian Peterson has come over from the New Orleans via a trade. In his first game with Arizona, Peterson had a spectacular debut has he finished the day with 134 rushing yards, and two touchdowns.
He is now the team’s lead running back and ready for the challenge against Los Angeles. With a huge day on the ground, Arizona was able to withstand the Buccaneers as they won Week 6 by the score of 38-33. With one game behind the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC West, this game means everything for Arizona.
Another veteran who showcased their talent in the win was quarterback Carson Palmer who completed 18 of his 22 passes for 283 yards and three touchdowns. Veteran wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald was on the receiving end for 138 of those yards as well.
Betting on the Los Angeles Rams (4-2)
Meet the first place NFC West leaders as Week 7 comes around the corner: The Los Angeles Rams. Los Angeles managed to secure their fourth victory of the season as they bounced back from their loss against Seattle in grand special teams fashion. In their 27-17 win against Jacksonville, Los Angeles special teams scored 14 points.
Kick returner Pharoh Cooper started the fun for Los Angeles as he returned the opening kickoff back 103 yards for the touchdown. Another special teams touchdown happened when Malcolm Brown returned a blocked punt eight yards for the score.
On the offense, running back Todd Gurley managed to take away time and momentum from Jacksonville as he rushed for 116 yards topping over 100 yards for the third time in four games.
The Arizona Cardinals might have a new offense to showcase against divisional foes Los Angeles Rams, but Todd Gurley and Jared Goff will be too much too handle in London. Pick: Rams (-3.5)
