NFL Betting – Los Angeles Rams at Arizona Cardinals
In the first meeting between the Los Angeles Rams and the Arizona Cardinals, it was simply no contest. This time around it’s taking place on another continent, but fundamentally, is there any reason to believe it will be different? These are the questions that are going to be answered on Sunday afternoon as these teams get together at 4:25 PM ET at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, AZ. This game will be televised on Fox Network regionally, and BetAnySports customers will have the opportunity to place wagers as the game is in progress, using state-of-the-art software from Live Betting Ultra.
It was on October 22 when these teams met in London, in the Rams held the Cardinals to 10 first downs and 193 yards in a 33-0 shutout victory. Now the Cardinals are doing business under the stewardship of quarterback Blaine Gabbert, who has a 10-33 record as a starting quarterback in the NFL. Last week, however, Arizona, which is now 5-6 straight-up and 3-7-1 ATS, scored an upset victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars, as Gabbert threw for 241 yards and Adrian Peterson added 79 more on the ground. It’s going to be an uphill battle for the Cardinals, who won’t have Carson Palmer for the rest of the season and will also be without David Johnson, the guy who gave them so much hope with his dual talents out of the backfield.
The Rams did well for themselves last week, with a 26-0 victory over the New Orleans Saints, breaking the Saints’ eight-game winning streak. New Orleans, which has one of the top offenses in the league, was held to just 14 first downs. The Rams are the leaders in the NFC West, with a 8-3 straight-up record and 7-4 ledger against the football pointspread.

Under 44 points -110
The Rams have gone from having the worst offense in the league to having one of the best, and part of that involves the imagination and play-calling skills of the staff, headed by 31-year-old head coach Sean McVay, who could well be in line for Coach of the Year. This team is fourth in the league in points per drive, although if there is one criticism of them, it’s that they produce too many field goals in proportion to touchdowns. But there is no question that Jared Goff, who was last year’s #1 overall draft pick, has made incredible progress. Goff, who just seemed to need the right kind of coaching, has averaged a whopping 8.2 yards per attempt with 18 touchdowns, and he’s thrown only five interceptions, which is what you’d really like to see out of a young quarterback. Of course, it doesn’t hurt when you get support of the backfield like he gets from Todd Gurley, who produced 106 yards on the ground the first time these two teams met.
BetAnySports patrons know that Arizona is a team that still shows some ability on the defensive side. They are in the top 10 in the NFL in yards allowed on a per-drive basis, and no team has forced three-and-outs as often as they have (32.3%). And they have a shutdown cornerback in Patrick Peterson who has the ability to make one of the Rams’ receivers irrelevant. But even if he stops, let’s say, Sammy Watkins (7017.5 yards per reception), there are other dangerous people like Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp who have also contributed. This is why the Rams are so tough to play; Goff knows how to distribute the football.
