Why Bet The Los Angeles Rams To Beat The Patriots
The Rams have lost six of their last seven games. They were obliterated by the New Orleans Saints last week by a 49-21 score. They are 4-7 SU and 4-6-1 ATS this season. They average 15.5 points per game (32nd) and give up 21.5 points per game (12th).
Los Angeles averages 212.2 passing yards per game (29th). QB Jared Goff (348 yards, 31 TDs & 3 INTs) looked like a potential franchise QB against New Orleans last week after a disastrous first game two weeks ago. He completed 30 of 32 passes for 214 yards for three touchdowns and one pick. WR Kenny Britt (54 rec, 788 yards, 4 TDs) is having a career year. The Rams average 83.1 rushing yards per game (29th). RB Todd Gurley (200 car, 641 yards, 4 TDs) hasn’t recorded a 100-yard game all season. In 2015 he had five.
The Rams have the 9th-ranked total defense in the NFL. They allow 228.0 passing yards per game (7th) and 112.3 rushing yards per game (20th). Alec Ogletree has 98 tackles and Aaron Donald has 6.0 sacks this season.
Why Bet The New England Patriots To Beat The Rams
The New England Patriots are on the top of the AFC with a 9-2 SU record and 8-3 ATS. They struggled to beat the NY Jets last week. The final score was 22-17. The Patriots average 26.5 points per game (6th) and allow 17.9 points per game (3rd).
New England averages 270.4 passing yards per game (6th). QB Tom Brady (2201 yards, 18 TDS & 1 INTs) looked limited physically last week with a knee injury. He missed practice on Wednesday to receive treatment. WR Julian Edelman (64 rec, 617 yards, 2 TDs) and TE Martellus Bennett (42 rec, 540 yards, 4 TD) lead the team in receptions this season. The big news is TE Rob Gronkowski (25 rec, 540 yards, 3 TDs) will undergo back surgery today, bringing his season to an unexpected end. But if you know anything about football, video games, and the dark arts, you knew this was coming after he was chosen to be the cover boy for Madden 17.
The Patriots average 115.8 rushing yards per game (7th). RB LeGarrette Blount (212 car, 869 yards, 12 TDs) leads all running backs with 12 touchdowns. RB James White (28 car, 112 yards, 0 DTs) and Dion Lewis (11 car, 47 yards, 0 TDs) are deadly weapons out of the backfield for short passes from Brady.

Rams Vs Patriots ATS Pick & Final Score Prediction
New England let the public down last week after they went all in on the Pats versus the Jets. They failed to cover. But the public still trusts Brady and co more than the Rams.
Sharps money should come in on Los Angeles, though we saw very little movement on the spread from Rams +13.5 earlier in the week even after news broke of Gronk missing up to two months.
My final score prediction is Los Angeles 19, New England 30.
