Betting on the Los Angeles Rams (-1)
Regular Season Record: 1-0
The Rams took care of business in Week 1, opening the season with a 20-17 home win against the Dallas Cowboys last Sunday. Los Angeles’ defense looked great against the Cowboys. Aaron Donald was throwing Cowboys’ offensive linemen like dirty shirts, while Jalen Ramsey, Micah Kiser, and Jordan Fuller were fantastic as well. Donald was particularly scary in chasing after Dak Prescott. He could be a wrecking ball again this coming weekend against Philly’s offensive line that didn’t seem to care about Carson Wentz’s life in Week 1. Wentz was sacked by the Washington Football Team eight times for a loss of 62 yards. Donalds must be licking his chops right now. The Rams got 153 rushing yards from their backfield, with Malcolm Brown scoring two touchdowns on the ground. Brown led the team with 18 carries and 79 rushing yards, but rookie Cam Akers is also a threat for the Eagles, who weren’t really tested against the run in Week 1.
The Rams are 6-3-1 against the spread in their last 10 games.
Betting on the Philadelphia Eagles (+1)
Regular Season Record: 0-1
Wentz must still be cleaning his face with dirt after kissing the ground a lot in Week 1’s 27-17 road loss to Washington. As mentioned earlier, Wentz was hit a lot by Washington, as the Eagles’ banged-up offensive line operated like a broken turnstile. But it was not all on Philly’s offensive line. Wentz was also responsible for some of those sacks because of his lack of decisiveness in the pocket. It would be nice for Wentz if he’ll have running back Miles Sanders available to get handoffs from him. Sanders missed the season opener with a hamstring injury, but he reportedly has a good chance to play against the Rams. If he misses another game, Philly will have to treat Boston Scott as their top option in the rushing attack. Wentz should continue looking for tight end Dallas Goedert after connecting with him for 101 yards and a touchdown in the loss to Washington.
The under is 7-0 in the Eagles’ last seven home games.
The Rams win, 27-21.
