Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Rams are 1-point favorites to beat the Saints. The total, meanwhile, sits at 59.5 points. As of this writing, 51% of the public betting tickets are on the Saints to cover the point spread.

Los Angeles Rams

The Rams expect Cooper Kupp (knee) to return for Sunday's game against the Saints. "I know he’s feeling good and confident and excited to be back out there," coach Sean McVay said. Kupp ended up missing only two games after it looked like his season might be over when he went down against the Broncos in Week 6. Including the Denver game, Jared Goff averaged a modest 233 yards during Kupp's absence. Kupp will be a WR2 for Sunday's likely shootout in New Orleans.

New Orleans Saints

Michael Thomas (shoulder) was a full participant at practice on Thursday. Thomas was limited at Wednesday's practice, but this shoulder injury was never considered serious, and the Saints are likely just limiting his reps. Thomas remains an every-week WR1 in all formats, especially with a home game against the Rams on Sunday.

NFL Betting Trends

Los Angeles

The over is 5-1 in the Rams’ last six games after accumulating more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.

New Orleans

The over is 8-1-1 in the Saints’ last 10 home games versus a team with a winning road record.

Prediction

This is one of the highest totals that you’ll see in a NFL game but I still expect these two teams to cash the over. Sean Payton and Sean McVay are two of the most creative offensive minds in the league and should find ways to move the ball consistently. Meanwhile, both defenses are opportunistic, so turnovers should also help cash the over. This should be a wild, back-and-forth slugfest throughout and I wouldn’t be surprised to see both teams score in the high-30s or event he low 40s.
