NFL Football Betting Odds:
Los Angeles Rams
The Rams were one of 2017’s biggest surprises. After a disappointing season that saw Jeff Fisher get fired, the Rams brought in Sean McVay. McVay became the youngest coach in NFL history but his youth ended up working to his advantage. The results speak for themselves as Los Angeles turned in an 11-5 record last season to claim the NFC West. Although they were eliminated in the Wild Card round by the Atlanta Falcons 13-26, 2017 was still a great season for the franchise. Moving forward, the club is hopeful that they can build on last year’s success. Considering how young and talented this team is, they should have no problems doing so.
Players to Watch: Jared Goff (3,804 passing yards, 28 TD, 7 INT), Todd Gurley II (1,305 rushing yards, 13 TD, 5 F), and Cooper Kupp (869 receiving yards, 5 TD, 1 F).
The Oakland Raiders turned in a disappointing 6-10 record last season to finish 3rd in the AFC West. Although they had tremendous talent, the Raiders were crippled by their inconsistency. That, and an injury to starting quarterback Derek Carr. Nevertheless, the Raiders still have plenty of talent to be considered a threat in the AFC West. Granted, they’ll have to topple the Broncos and Chiefs if they are to win the division. As for this matchup, the Raiders might have a hard time containing the Rams this early in the season.
Players to Watch: Derek Carr (3,496 passing yards, 22 TD, 13 INT), Marshawn Lynch (891 rushing yards, 7 TD, 1 F), and Jared Cook (688 receiving yards, 2 TD, 1 F).
