Why Bet The Los Angeles Rams To Beat The Cowboys
HC Sean McVay is well on his way to transforming the Rams into an offensive juggernaut. After three weeks, the Rams are averaging 35.7 points and 381.0 total yards per game. McVay has pumped second-year QB Jared Goff with confidence. Goff threw five TDs and seven picks while starting the final seven games last season. This season, he enters Sunday’s game completing 70.4% of his passes for 817 passing yards and five TDs to one interception.
Goff has a couple of deadly weapons in WR Sammy Watkins (13 rec, 194 yards, 2 TDs) and RB Todd Gurley (13 rec, 140 yards, 2 TDs). Currently, Watkins and Tavon Austin are in the concussion protocol and their availability for Sunday is unknown.
Why Bet The Los Dallas Cowboys To Beat The Rams
The Cowboys finally hit mid-season form in the second half of their 28-17 win over the Cardinals last week. They are hoping they can find the same groove that won them eleven games in a row last season.
Last week, QB Dak Prescott threw for 183 yards and two touchdowns while adding another rushing score. It was the same magic that earned him Offensive ROY honors and a trip to the Pro-Bowl last season.
While RB Ezekiel Elliott will be available for this game, the cloud of a six-game suspension still hangs over the defending rushing champ.
Good thing for the Cowboys offense, the Rams have the 29th ranked defense against the pass and they give up 139.0 rushing yards per game.
