Dallas could have a slight advantage as they have seen some game action already beating Arizona in the HOF opener.
The Rams are hoping for things to really turnaround this season though we might not see much of that in this one, win or lose.
Kick off is set for 9:00 PM ET with the Rams looking to sparks some optimism. Still don’t expect to see so much with key players getting knocked out of camp. Pre-season is all about surviving intact.
Dallas won 20-18 in the Hall of Fame game. Pushing and going just over the total.
No stars on display but it was nice to see former NCAAB rebounding wizard Rico Gathers make an impact at TE. I think he has a future.
With Dak Prescott firmly entrenched as the starter at QB there is not much drama for Dallas at that position. Kellen Moore is capable of keeping things moving on offense with secondary personnel.
Los Angeles Rams
Sean McVay was named coach in January and is the youngest head coach in the NFL. He is looking to change things up and make the Rams more relevant.
Since all coaches play things close to the vest I am not sure how much of that we will really see in this first preseason matchup. There is not really a book on this guy yet.
The Rams still don’t know what they have in QB Jared Goff but he seems to be leading the race at that position so we might not see much. The rest of the QB are not very exciting.
I wouldn’t expect much on offense from L.A. in this spot.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Under 37
Having got a game in there would seem to be an advantage for Dallas. Really I think it will be that their depth (their second and third tier players) is better and that will show in this one. Unless McVay does something crazy like trying to win on purpose.
NFL Free Preseason Score Prediction: Dallas 24 – Los Angeles 20
This will not be very exciting football but I like Dallas here even though they do not usually put a lot of stock in the preseason under coach Garrett.
