Chiefs at Rams Preview

Neither the St. Louis Rams nor the Kansas City Chiefs enter the 2009 NFL season with high hopes. They’ll square off at 8:00PM ET on Thursday night.

Bet NFL Future Odds

The Chiefs fell to 0-3 on the preseason with their 14-10 loss last week to the Seahawks. Kansas City failed to cover the 3-point spread and the under 39 covered.

The Rams improved to 2-1 thanks to a Samkon Gado rushing and receiving touchdowns in a 23-21 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. The over 45 easily covered in that game.

Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made the Chiefs 1-point road favorites over the Rams, while the total has been set at 36.

Considering both the Rams and the Bengals have new coaching staffs and new schemes, they may play their starters longer than most teams do in their preseason finales. That said, Kansas City starting quarterback Matt Cassel won’t play due to an injury and with Tyler Thigpen expected to play in the Chiefs’ season opener next week, the backup signal caller should see extended time.
