According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Rams are 4.5-point home favorites versus the Colts, while the over/under currently sits at 41.5 points.
Los Angeles hit the board as a 3-point underdog but when the news came out that Andrew Luck could miss Week 1, the line jumped the fence. With Scott Tolzien set to start for Indy, the Rams are now 4.5-point favorites.
As for the total, the number hit the board at 47.5 but has been bet all the way down to 41.5.
Public Betting Information
Of the wagers currently placed on this game, 71% of tickets are on the Rams minus the points.
OUR PREDICTION: I think the Rams are overrated defensively, especially without Aaron Donald (holdout) terrorizing quarterbacks. Still, Tolzien isn't going to move the ball on Sunday. The Rams still have four first-rounders on defense and Wade Phillips has long proven that he knows what he's doing. But the bottom line is that neither Tolzien nor Jared Goff are going to light up the scoreboard on Sunday. I like the under here.
