Los Angeles Rams (4-7) at New England Patriots (9-2) The Patriots enter this game 2nd in first down rate differential, despite the fact that they were missing starting quarterback Tom Brady for the first 4 games of the season, but there’s still plenty of reason to be concerned with them. Their defense hasn’t been the […]

Carolina Panthers (2-5) at Los Angeles Rams (3-4) The Rams come out of the bye healthy on defense, after key players like cornerback Trumaine Johnson, defensive tackle Michael Brockers, and defensive ends William Hayes and Robert Quinn all missed some time in the weeks before the bye. Right now, the Rams are more or less […]

Los Angeles Rams (3-3) vs. New York Giants (3-3) at London The Rams have fallen back to earth in the last 2 weeks, losing back-to-back games after a surprising 3-1 start.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-7) at St. Louis Rams (5-8) Ordinarily, non-divisional home favorites do really well on Thursday nights, going 26-13 ATS since 2002. It makes sense.

St. Louis Rams (2-2) at Green Bay Packers (4-0) The Packers’ home dominance in recent years is well documented. As long as Aaron Rodgers starts (minus any games he’s been knocked out very early with injuries), the Packers are 29-11-1 ATS at home since 2010 and 37-4 straight up, with an absurd +589 point differential, […]
