Betting Line: Rams -9.5
Over/Under: 56.5 points at 888 Sportsbook
The Packers head to La La Land with a big game in the NFC facing the Rams, who are the last undefeated team in the league. Punters have a lot of betting action for this big NFL game.
The Packers are coming off a bye and they have won two of their last three games. They are in second place in the NFC North one game back of the Minnesota Vikings. Aaron Rodgers has dealt with a knee issue all season and the future Hall of Fame quarterback has not had the best season. However, he is coming off a great last game and has had a week off to rest his knee.
The Rams are charging and they have played well on both sides of the ball. They have the league’s top rushing team and rank third in points per game and fourth in points against per game. They are a big 9.5-point home favorite in this game and that is the biggest underdog Rodgers had been in a game where he is under center.
These teams have not met since the 2015 season.
This season the Packers are 2-4 ATS and they have an Over/Under record of 5-1 with the Rams at 4-3 ATS with an Over/Under record of 3-4.
The Packers have covered the spread in their last five games facing the Rams.
In their last game before the bye the Packers beat the San Francisco 49ers 33-30. They kicked a game winning field goal as time expired after an 81-yard drive that started with an interception with only 1:07 left in the game. Green Bay racked up 521 yards, giving up 401 yards, but the one turnover in the game with the late interception gave Rodgers a chance and he took it.
Rodgers lit it up for 425 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions and three players had at least 100 receiving yards. Like on the season Rodgers did not get much help from the run game and Aaron Jones led the team with only 41 rushing yards. The Packers have a tall order facing a Rams’ defense that only gave up 10 points in their last game.
The Rams also faced the 49ers in their last game, but they had a much easier time than the Packers winning 39-10. Not only did the Rams have more than 100 total yards (331 to 228), but they forced four turnovers and did not commit any. Jared Goff had an efficient game with 202 passing yards with a couple of touchdowns and no interceptions and Todd Gurley only rushed for 63 yards on only 15 carries. Gurley leads the league in rushing yards and also has 270 receiving yards.
Obviously, Gurley is a major concern for Green Bay and while they rank fifth in the league in pass defense they only rank 22nd in run defense.
Green Bay Packers betting trends
- 0-4 ATS in their last four road games
- 2-7 ATS in their last nine games
- 2-7 ATS in their last nine games facing a team with a winning record
- Over record of 23-6 in their last 29 games
LA Rams betting trends
- 6-15-1 ATS in their last 22 games after allowing less than 250 total yards in their previous game
- Over record of 7-3 in their last 10 games after a win
Green Bay Packers vs. LA Rams betting prediction
The Rams are en fuego and this game facing Rodgers and the Packers will be a big test for them.
They will pass the test with a home win, but the game will be a close one with Rodgers having a great game and Green Bay will cover the big spread.
