The Rams enter this game amidst some legitimate struggles as of late. Offensively, they’re averaging 17.6 points per game over the last three games wit a 1-2 record. Now they’ll take on a fast-paced Cardinals offense that averaged 27 points in two games against the 49ers and the Buccaneers.
This has one of the highest projected totals at 47.5 with the Rams as -3 favorites. When they’re favored, the Rams are 6-3 against the spread, giving them the highest cover percentage in the league at 66.7%. On paper, this is such a great spot for the Rams who face a Cardinals defense that allows the most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks and tight ends, the 10th most to running backs and the fifth most too wide receivers. While Jared Goff ($6,000) and company will be appealing options, the lack of consistency is a concern. Even still, Robert Woods ($5,500), Cooper Kupp ($7,100) and Brandin Cooks ($5,200) all draw good matchups. Of course, don’t forget about Gerald Everett ($4,600), who is questionable but draws the best possible matchup of the season at the tight end position.
For the Cardinals, Kyler Murray ($6,400) continues to impress and has posted at least 23 DKFP in three straight games. Even when he’s not getting it done through the air, his rushing abilities puts him in play each and every week, averaging 38 per game. While the run game has been dicey, the return of Christian Kirk ($5,700) is helpful for this offense. Kirk will draw CB Jalen Ramsey, who since joining the Rams has allowed an average of 12.7 YPR and a 71.4% catch rate. With the struggles the Rams are enduring, the Cardinals posses some serious value as underdogs, who are 7-2-1 as underdogs ATS.
