After the Rams lost to the Cardinals the previous week, they had a bounce back game on Thursday against the Seahawks in Seattle. They won by 9 points, but the game was closer than the final score indicated. Both teams were able to get their passing offense going and neither defense was doing much to stop it apart from some lucky bounces.
The Giants lost to the Cowboys in Dallas last game by a large margin. Again, that score was not indicative of the game. The Giants had it tied at 10, then were down by only 4 halfway through the 3rd quarter. They lost Daniel Jones, Barkley, and Golladay to injuries in the game as well.
The Rams are ranked by Football Outsiders as 5th in the league heading into Week 6, while the Giants are ranked 23rd. PFF has a similar rating for overall team stats.
Los Angeles Rams
The Rams were in talks of “best team in the league” after beating the Buccaneers but were shortly an afterthought when the Cardinals beat them the next week. To be fair, Los Angeles put up some big numbers and played well against the Bears, Colts, and Bucs.
They were outplayed by the Cardinals the following week and just barely were the better team in the Seattle game last week. They will need to show me something this week or I’ll have to believe they aren’t quite deserving of being in the top tier conversation.
PFF has them outside of the top 5 in their power rankings, and with the 4th hardest schedule to date.
The biggest strength of this team is that they can pass and run effectively, with a great run defense. The biggest weakness is their coverage – they rank in the bottom half of the league in that category.
New York Giants
The Giants are an up and down team this year. Two of their losses were by 4 combined points in games they could have won. They beat the Saints the week prior to getting stomped by the Cowboys.
The Giants are actually not bad with their passing offense, which works well to counter the Rams weakness in coverage. The big problem here is that Daniel Jones is questionable and is in concussion protocol. If he doesn’t play, Glennon is the backup which would be a downgrade.
The Barkley injury surprisingly doesn’t hurt them that much. The Giants are terrible running the ball and the Rams don’t allow run yards anyway. They’re better off committing to the passing game like the Patriots do.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: New York Giants +10.5
The Giants are the bet in this matchup. Fading the public after teams get blown out (Giants) has a good ROI. The Rams are getting 91% of the money right now – they will surely be a public favorite.
The Giants aren’t great by any means, but they aren’t bad enough to be double digit underdogs at home. The Rams have faltered a bit from their dominant 3-0 start.
