Rams lone unbeaten
Los Angeles is the lone unbeaten team remaining in the NFL at 7-0 following a 39-10 win over the 49ers last weekend. The Rams are 4-3 against the spread and 4-3 with the under. They are just 1-3 against the spread in their last four games.
The Rams have been pretty unstoppable on offense this year, averaging 33.6 points and 457.4 yards per game. Jared Goff has thrown or 2,130 yards and 14 touchdowns while Todd Gurley has rushed for 686 yards and 11 touchdowns while adding 270 receiving yards and three scores. Robert Woods is the leading receiver with 41 catches for 602 yards and three scores. The team is going with be without receiver Cooper Kupp, who is dealing with a sprained MCL. Defensively, the Rams are giving up just 18.3 points and 347.3 yards per game. Aaron Donald is having a monster year with eight sacks already.
Packers healing up
The Packers got the bye at the right time, as they needed to heal up in key positions. They are coming off a 33-30 win over the 49ers prior to the bye and are 3-2-1 on the year. They are also 2-4 against the spread and 5-1 with the over. They have failed to cover in their last two games.
Despite averaging just 24.7 points per game this year, the Pack are still putting up 445.7 yards per game behind a passing attack averaging 342 yards per contest. Aaron Rodgers has thrown for 1,997 yards and 12 touchdowns with just one interception. His receivers have been banged up, but Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison could both return this afternoon. Allison is probable to play while Cobb is still questionable as both deal with ankle injuries. The Packers could use a stronger run game, as Jamaal Williams remains the leading rusher with just 224 yards on 59 carries. Defensively, Green Bay is giving up 24 points and 349 yards per game.
NFL Betting Trends
The Rams are 6-2 against the spread in their last eight Week-8 games but 6-15-1 ATS in their last 22 games after allowing less than 250 total yards in their previous game.
The Packers are just 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall and 1-7 ATS in their last eight conference games.
Everything is telling me to take Aaron Rodgers and the points because he’s Aaron Rodgers. However, that is probably what the oddsmakers want. The Packers really aren’t a great team this year when you break down their performances. They were manhandled already at Washington this year and Rodgers is not at 100 percent. Even with his top receivers returning, the Rams can apply a lot of pressure on him and he doesn’t have a run game to support him. The Rams will be just fine scoring on Green Bay and I just don’t see the Packers being able to match them score for score.
NFL Prediction: Los Angeles Rams -8
