Los Angeles Rams Fantasy Spin
Cooper Kupp caught 6-of-10 targets for 35 yards in the Rams' Week 12 loss to the Ravens. Kupp led the Rams in targets but has now been held to 53 scoreless yards or fewer in four of the last five games with a 7-220-1 day against the Bengals as the lone exception. An every-week WR1 the first month-and-a-half of the season, Kupp has fallen way back with the massive drop-off in Jared Goff's play. He'll be a WR2/3 next week in a plus draw against the Cardinals.
Arizona Cardinals Fantasy Spin
Kyler Murray (hamstring) is questionable for Week 13. Murray wasn't listed on the injury report until Friday. He got in a full practice, but is listed as questionable. Obviously a hamstring injury would be far from ideal for the league's second-most dangerous rushing QB behind only Lamar Jackson. Murray already had a difficult matchup against Aaron Donald and the Rams. This injury certainly doesn't help matters. Hopefully we receive more information on the matter prior to Sunday.
NFL Betting Trends
The Rams are 9-2 against the spread in their last 11 conference games and have covered the spread in six of their last seven on the road as well.
The Cardinals are 9-2 against the spread in their last 11 games after allowing more than 30 points in their previous game.
The Rams have had issues along their offensive line and that has sunk their offense but with Murray now dealing with a hamstring injury, I see too much value in Los Angeles to pass. The Rams are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games versus the Cardinals and have covered four straight in Arizona. The road team has also chased in seven of the previous nine meetings between these two teams and the favorite is a perfect 5-0 at the betting window in the last five meetings.
