This is basically a meaningless game for both teams. The Rams will try and take some steps in the right direction with their young team and the Cardinals will look to finish the season off on a nice note winning two games in a row.
Halfback David Johnson will look to do what no one has done before. And that is gain 100 plus total yards in all 16 games in a season. That has never been done so we’ll see if he can do it in this one.
We’ll also see just how much of a load he’ll carry. This is a meaningless game and there isn’t much point in running him into the ground, but we’ll see.
Bruce Arians is an old school guy and a high level competitor it wouldn’t be a complete shock if DJ got a fairly high workload.
Also, remember, the Rams beat the Cardinals earlier this season; Arians and the Cardinals will want to right that wrong and finish the season with a little momentum.
Los Angeles Rams
The good news for the Los Angeles Rams is that they have a strong defense and a beastly front four. Not many teams in the NFL can say that.
However, the Rams offense is pitiful. Their offensive line isn’t very good, Todd Gurley significantly regressed this season and their quarterback of the future seems very shaky.
I, personally, didn’t like Jared Goff much coming out and he hasn’t proved me wrong yet. He seems a bit lost, he doesn’t have the strongest arm, and the system in place doesn’t much help him. But, we’ll see what happens in the offseason.
Obviously, the Rams will target Josh McDaniels as the head coach and maybe he can turn around this offense.
As for this game against the Cardinals, I would expect a low scoring game. Both defenses are good, both should fight and the Rams offense obviously be stuck in the mud for the majority of this game.
NFL Betting Trends:
- Rams 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games
- Rams under is 15-7 in their last 22 games
- Cardinals are 5-2 ATS against the Rams
- Arizona under is 12-5 in their last 17 games against the Rams
4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Under 41
For this game, give me the under. I don’t think both teams will be all that hyped for this one. The Cardinals just played in their Super Bowl game last week against the Seahawks and they’ll have a let down.
The Rams, meanwhile, just want this season to end already. Their offense is awful and we know they won’t score much in this one. The Cardinals should basically dominate in this one and probably cover, but the best, safe bet in this one is the under.
