Week 14 Rams vs. Cardinals NFL Predictions

NFL Football Betting – St. Louis Rams at Arizona Cardinals

The eventual NFC West champion Arizona Cardinals (7-5 SU & ATS) will look to be the next team to beat up on the sad-sack St. Louis Rams (2-10 SU, 4-8 ATS) in NFL pro football sports betting action that is set to kick off at 4:15 PM ET at University of Phoenix Stadium (natural turf) in Glendale, AZ.

BetUS NFL betting odds: ARIZONA -14, Total 48

NOTABLE STAT: Cardinals average 28.2 points per game (3rd in NFL)
KEY NFL FOOTBALL BETTING TREND: Rams are 2-5 ATS in last seven road games

In the BetUS NFL football betting odds, the Cardinals are listed as a 14-point favorite, with a posted total of 48 points.

Here are some NFL football betting trends as they relate to this matchup:

* STL has covered one of its last five games
* STL has lost its last six games SU
* STL has played four of its last six games UNDER the total
* STL has covered two of its last seven road games
* STL has lost seven of its last eight road games SU
* STL has played 16 of its last 24 road games UNDER the total
* ARIZ has played seven of its last nine games OVER the total
* ARIZ has covered four of its last six home games
* ARIZ has won seven of its last eight home games SU
* ARIZ has played its last five home games OVER the total

Also…

* ARIZ has covered seven of the last ten meetings
* ARIZ has won five of the last six meetings SU
* Four of the last six meetings have gone OVER the total
* STL has won four of the last six meetings SU as the road team
* Four of the last six meetings in Arizona have gone UNDER the total

Steven Jackson came back from three weeks out of the lineup and chalked up 94 yards rushing against the Dolphins, which helped the Rams be competitive in a game they lost by a 16-12 count. That’s a bright spot, and heaven knows this team can use any ray of light. The Rams have scored just 12 offensive touchdowns in twelve games, and they have gotten very little in the way of production from either Marc Bulger (one TD, 6 INTs in last four games) or backup Trent Green (no TDs, 6 INTs on season). This team has reached 20 points just once this season.

You’d really want to be more offensively potent if you hopes to keep pace with an Arizona team that has averaged 33 points per game at home and is bound to grumpy after taking a four-touchdown loss squarely on the chin in Philadelphia. You want to talk about delivering at home? Kurt Warner, the two-time MVP who is experiencing a rebirth with the Cards, has hit just under 73% of his throws at University of Phoenix Stadium, with 11 TDs and two INTs.

Sure, the Cards don’t run very well (3.3 ypc for the season), nor were they able to keep the Giants or Eagles off the scoreboard in the last two weeks. But we doubt whether St. Louis, which has scored TDs just 26% of the time it’s been in the red zone (by comparison, ‘Zona is 60%) is going to get well against anybody.

The Cardinals can get the division title with a win here. St. Louis have surrendered 8.4 yards a pass attempt (that’s a chunk), and Arizona has a trio of receivers – Anquan Boldin (78), Larry Fitzgerald (77) and Steve Breaston (60) who are all in the NFC’s top ten in catches. Even with Jackson available (he had only 17 yards in previous meeting) it won’t erase major headaches on the offensive line, especially as it has usually had Bulger back on his heels from the opening gun.

This Rams team has demonstrated the ability to be down five touchdowns at the half. Is the back door even open? Lay the points with Arizona, the 14-point favorite in the BetUS NFL pro football sports betting odds.

Our PLAY: ARIZONA -14 **
