Rams moving to Los Angeles
The St. Louis Rams are now the Los Angeles Rams. Will the move to L.A. improve their chances of success?
After months and months of rumors and debate, the Rams made their move from St. Louis to L.A. official on Tuesday thanks to the NFL owners approving the change. St. Louis has now lost an NFL franchise for the second time. The Rams will play their first few seasons, including the 2016 season, in the L.A. Coliseum before moving into a plush new stadium being built for them in Inglewood.
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Rams are currently listed with 50/1 odds to win Super Bowl 51 (LI) in 2017. They rank among the bottom teams in the NFL, as the 49ers (75/1) and Browns (200/1) are the only teams with worse odds as of now. The Patriots, Seahawks and Steelers are all favored at 8/1.
The Rams are coming off a 7-9 season in St. Louis for the 2015 season. It was Jeff Fisher’s fourth year with the team and third time he has won seven games. He has yet to have a winning record in any of the four seasons with the team. The Rams have won one Super Bowl in franchise history, which came in 1999.
