St. Louis Rams (0-1) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-1) The Buccaneers are in a bad spot here with a Thursday Night game against the Falcons on deck. Teams are 14-30 ATS since 2008 as favorites before a divisional Thursday Night game. I also think we’re getting some line value with the Rams. The Buccaneers aren’t [...]

Minnesota Vikings (0-0) at St. Louis Rams (0-0) This is another one where I wish I had bet earlier when the Rams were 6 point favorites before Sam Bradford tore his ACL. I thought the Rams were overrated before Bradford’s injury, as they finished 28th in rate of moving the chains differential at -5.32% last season. [...]

QB Sam Bradford (St. Louis) Bradford had shown signs of becoming the long-term answer at quarterback for the Rams last season. Bradford completed 60.7% of his passes for an average of 6.44 YPA, 14 touchdowns, and 4 interceptions in 2013. That TD:INT ratio looks pretty good, but I put more stock in completion percentages and [...]

Chicago Bears (6-4) at St. Louis Rams (4-6) Before the bye, the Rams beat the Colts in blowout fashion. However, there were a lot of fluky things going on. They scored twice on return touchdowns, twice on long touchdowns, and only had one methodical touchdown drive. This forced the Colts to abandon their game plan, [...]

Last week: 28 (+0) Record: 3-4 Kellen Clemens was essentially as you’d expect him against one of the league’s premier defenses, as he completed 15 of 31 for 158 yards and 2 interceptions in leading the Rams to 9 total points. The Rams’ defense kept them competitive against an elite team in a 14-9 loss, [...]

St. Louis Rams (2-3) at Houston Texans (2-3) It’s weird to be saying this because I held that the Texans were overrated coming into the season, but I actually think the Texans are underrated right now. They’ve faced a very tough schedule thus far, playing Baltimore, Tennessee, San Diego, and San Francisco, and Seattle. San [...]

Last week: 28 (+0) Record: 2-3 Beating the Jaguars isn’t impressive. It ended an awful stretch for the Rams, in which they trailed Atlanta 21-0 early before injuries and garbage time, they lost 31-7 to the Cowboys, and they lost 35-11 to the 49ers. That being said, I don’t think any higher of them than [...]
