Why Bet The Los Angeles Rams To Beat The Saints
The Rams have lost four of their last five games, including a 14-10 last quarter debacle against the Miami Dolphins last week. They are 4-6 SU and 4-5-1 ATS this season. Los Angeles averages 14.9 points per game (32nd) and allows 18.7 points per game (5th).
Los Angeles averages 215.4 passing yards per game (28th). Rookie QB Jared Goff (134 yards, 0 TDs & 0 INTs) is making his first road start in the NFL in the loud, unfriendly confines of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
"He did a really good job," Fisher said. "No delay of games. He was in complete control in the huddle. He did a nice job on the line of scrimmage. I was disappointed in the outcome of the game, but you could see the light — there’s light there for him. So we’ll continue to allow him to get ready and continue to progress."
The good news for Goff is that the Saints have done an awful job of making rookies feel uncomfortable in the Dome. New Orleans is a stunning 6-12 overall in their last 18 home games.
Last year, Jameis Winston made his first NFL road start in New Orleans and won. Later in the season, Marcus Mariota threw four TDs in a win in the Superdome. In 2012, rookie Robert Griffin III and second-year pro Colin Kaepernick each made his first NFL road start in New Orleans and won.
WR Kenny Britt (49 rec, 736 yards, 3 TDs) caught five balls for 43 yards against the Dolphins. RB Todd Gurley (187 car, 591 yards, 4 TDs) has struggled all season with opposing defenses loading up the box and focusing on stopping him. Gurley ran for 76 yards and one touchdown on 20 carries. Los Angeles averages 84.5 rushing yards per game (29th).
The Rams have the sixth-ranked total defense in the NFL. They allow 216.0 passing yards per game (6th) and 102.6 rushing yards per game (15th). Alec Ogletree has 86 tackles, and Aaron Donald has 5.0 sacks.
Why Bet The New Orleans Saints To Beat The Rams
The New Orleans Saints had ten days to get ready for this game after losing 23-20 to the Carolina Panthers on Thursday. They are 4-6 SU and 6-3-1 ATS this season. They average 28.5 points per game (28th) and allow 28.6 points per game (30th).
The Saints average 316.8 passing yards per game (1st). QB Drew Brees (3277 yards, 26 TDs & 8 INTs) struggled against the Panthers defense. He completed 35 of 44 passes but just for 285 yards. He threw two touchdowns but was intercepted once. WR Brandin Cooks (51 rec, 736 yards, 6 TDs) leads the team in receiving yards and touchdown. Rookie WR Michael Thomas (56 rec, 681 yards, 5 TDs) is the second threat in this passing offense that can blow out any team. New Orleans averages 105.2 rushing yards per game (17th). RB Mark Ingram (122 car, 575 yards, 2 TDs) averages 4.7 yards per game.
New Orleans has the 26th-ranked total defense in the NFL. They give up 281.0 passing yards per game (30th) and 102.1 rushing yards per game (14th). Craig Robertson has 90 tackles, and Nick Fairley has 4.5 sacks.

Expert ATS Pick & Final Score Prediction
The public is heavy on the Saints by a lot. Their high-powered offense puts up points and they’ve been good to bettors at 7-3 ATS. Besides, bettors aren’t ready to back the Rams with unproven rookie Jared Goff under center.
The Rams Vs Saints betting spread opened under a touchdown and early sharps grabbed up that spread. It’s more split at 7, but the spread has jumped to 7.5. Count the Saints among the teams that will be popular teaser plays for sharps and squares alike.
My final score prediction is Los Angeles 20, New Orleans 30.
