NFL Week 1 Free Pick: Take St. Louis. According to latest NFL trends, the Rams are 7-0 against the spread in their last seven games versus divisional opponents, 5-1 ATS in their last six games versus the NFC, and are 5-1 against the number in their last six games overall. The Cardinals, meanwhile, are 1-4 against the number in their last five divisional games.

The Rams re-loaded this offseason, adding tight end Jared Cook, receiver Tavon Austin and left tackle Jake Long. Sam Bradford now has the weapons around him to succeed in Brian Schottenheimer's offense, and this will be the first time in his career that he'll be running the same system in back-to-back years. While the Cardinals did upgrade at the quarterback position by acquiring Carson Palmer, their offensive line remains a huge problem and will succumb to a solid St. Louis pass rush.
