Bet NFL Week 13 Games

PUBLIC BETTING: As of this writing, 65% of the betting tickets are on the Rams to cover the spread.

INJURY REPORT: Mark Barron (undisclosed) is probable for the Rams but Robert Woods will miss another game due to a shoulder injury. Pass-rusher Connor Barwin, who has been great for the Rams this season, is doubtful with an arm injury.

On the other side, Adrian Peterson is questionable with a neck injury for the Cardinals. Linebacker Deone Bucannon (ankle) and Corey Peters (knee) are also questionable, while John Brown is out with a toe injury.

OUR PREDICTION: The under has been a great play in this series, cashing in 13 of the last 19 meetings between these two teams and going 9-4 in the last 13 meetings in Arizona.

The under is also 4-1 in the Rams' last five games overall as they continue to come together under new DC Wade Phillips. The under is also 10-3 in the Rams' last 13 divisional games, 4-1 in their last five conference games, and 8-1 in their last nine games played in Week 13.

On the other side, the under is 6-1 in the Cardinals' last seven conference games, is 13-4 in their last 17 home games, and is 7-3 in their last 10 games overall.
