Los Angeles Rams vs. Arizona Cardinals NFC West Battle Preview
Posted by: Anthony Yaylor
With two back to back losses looming over their heads, it’s safe to say that the Los Angeles Rams have hit an NFL football betting hiccup. Ultimately this hiccup could not have come at a worst time as the Rams were vying to lock up the No. 1 seed in the NFC. Now Los Angeles is in the running to finish 2nd in the NFC. As such they would enjoy a 1st round bye, but seeing as how they’ve been struggling as of late that might do them more harm than good. Luckily this Sunday’s Los Angeles Rams vs. Arizona Cardinals matchup gives LA the perfect opportunity to rebound. So what kind of sportsbook betting odds are the Rams facing on the road this weekend?

Los Angeles Rams
The Rams charge into this Sunday’s contest sporting an 11-3 record that ranks them 1st in the NFC West. Having already clinched the divisional title, Los Angeles was primarily focused on snatching that No. 1 seed in the NFC. Having lost the last two games to the Bears and Eagles 15-6 and 30-23 respectively, Los Angeles is starting to question their offensive dominance. The 15-6 loss to Chicago can be set aside since they were playing on the road in an environment much colder than they were accustomed to. However, this past Sunday’s 30-23 loss to the Eagles at home cannot be brushed aside so easily. Ultimately the Rams need an outstanding offensive showing this weekend to get their confidence back where they need it before beginning the playoffs.
Players to Watch: Jared Goff (4,273 passing yards, 27 TD, 12 INT), Todd Gurley II (1,251 rushing yards, 17 TD, 0 F), and Brandin Cooks (1,107 receiving yards, 3 TD, 72 REC).
The Cardinals fly into this Sunday’s contest sporting a 3-11 record that pegs them as the worst team in the NFC West. The Cards don’t have much to look forward to in the remaining two weeks of the season but an upset win over Los Angeles would unquestionably give their fans something to celebrate. However, seeing what the Cards have to work with on offense, they really don’t stand a chance against one of the most loaded offenses in the NFL. The odds are pegging them as a massive underdog and that 14 ½ point spread makes it clear just how lopsided this contest is.
Players to Watch: Josh Rosen (2,042 passing yards, 10 TD, 14 INT), David Johnson (843 rushing yards, 7 TD, 2 F), and Larry Fitzgerald (645 receiving yards, 5 TD, 59 REC).
