All in all it seems that nobody is able to keep up with Los Angeles’ pace. So will we see another LA blowout in this Sunday’s Los Angeles Rams vs. Denver Broncos West Coast matchup? Let’s check the legal online betting odds to see what they’re predicting for this Week 6 contest.

NFL Football Betting Odds:
Los Angeles Rams
As aforementioned, the Rams are 5-0 this season. Naturally, this pegs them as the best team in the NFC West. Considering that the Seahawks are the Rams nearest threat at 2-3, it’s pretty clear that Los Angeles has the division locked down. Especially since they just defeated Seattle 33-31 this past weekend. As for this weekend’s matchup, it’s pretty clear that the Rams will be coasting to another victory. Right now the Rams are scoring 34.6 points per game, giving them the 3rd best offense in the NFL. The Broncos on the other hand, are struggling to score 20.0 per matchup. Interestingly enough, Los Angeles only gives up 19.6 per matchup, so we can expect Denver to lose their steam at the 20-point mark. But since the Broncos give up 26.2 per game, we can fully expect the Rams offense to keep on marching. Right now the Rams do have two players listed as questionable for this weekend’s action; Brandin Cooks and Cooper Kupp two of Jared Goff’s favorite targets. Even if they do miss the game LA is a heavy favorite but it is something to keep an eye on as the week progresses.
Players to Watch: Jared Goff (1,727 passing yards, 12 TD, 4 INT), Todd Gurley II (415 rushing yards, 7 TD, 0 F), and Brandin Cooks (452 receiving yards, 1 TD, 26 REC).
The Broncos ride into this weekend’s action sporting a less than stellar 2-3 record that pegs them as the 3rd worst team in the AFC West. Although Denver kicked the season with back to back wins, they’ve since posted a 3-game losing streak to the Ravens, Chiefs and the Jets. Although losing to Kansas City and Baltimore isn’t that disheartening, a loss to the Sam Darnold led Jets certainly is. Unfortunately for Denver, the AFC West is currently led by the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs. With that in mind, it’s pretty clear that Denver has no hope of winning the AFC West this season. However, they can still vie for a Wild Card berth. Naturally, a win over the Rams this Sunday would help them out tremendously in this department. It doesn’t look like this will be coming into fruition though.
Players to Watch: Case Keenum (1,365 passing yards, 5 TD, 7 INT), Philip Lindsay (328 rushing yards, 1 TD, 0 F), and Emmanuel Sanders (386 receiving yards, 1 TD, 0 F).
