Betting LA Rams

The Horned Ones defeated a Bree-less New Orleans Saints 27-9. Per the best online sportsbooks, the Rams were two-point home chalk. Starting QB Jared Goff threw 19 of 28 for 283 yards with one TD. Wide receiver Cooper Kupp logged 120 yards on five catches. Running back Todd Gurley registered 63 yards on 16 attempts. Defensively, the Rams held the Saints to just 57 yards rushing and sacked backup Teddy BH2O twice. The Rams are 6th in points (28.5) and 7th in rushing yards (140.5) per game. They also have a top 10 defense.

According to offshore betting websites, the LA team is 6-1 ATS in their last seven games overall. 4-1 ATS in their last five road games while. 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings with the Browns. The over is 7-3 in the Rams’ last 10 games in September.

Betting Cleveland Browns

The Browns beat the Jets 23-3 as 6.5-point road faves. Starting QB Baker Mayfield passed 19 of 35 for 325 yards with one TD and one pick. Odell Beckham Jr. recorded 161 yards and one TD on six catches. Running back Nick Chubb had 62 yards and one TD on 18 carries. On defense, Cleveland sacked the Jets QBs a combined four times. The Browns rank 7th in total yards (300.5) and 5th in passing yards (192.5) allowed per game.

Per offshore betting websites, Cleveland is 9-21 ATS in their last 30 games at home. 7-18-1 ATS in their last 26 games playing a team with a winning record. The over is 6-2-1 in the Browns’ last nine games after a win.

Cleveland could be without linebacker and captain Christian Kirksey, right tackle Chris Hubbard, safeties Damarious Randall and Morgan Burnett, and cornerbacks Denzel Ward and Greedy Williams. They all were banged up against the Jets. “[Kirksey]’s the leader in our room. He’s the leader on the defense, the vocal leader. He’s the leader on the team,” linebacker Joe Schobert said. “So not having his presence out there is definitely going to be missed. But I’ve got a lot of faith in the young guys, what they’ve shown through spring, through training camp, up to now. Now to be under the lights it’ll be a little bit bigger, but they played at big-time universities in big-time games and I’m excited to see what they do.”

Rams vs. Browns NFL Week 3 Game Prediction

Mr. Terry Pluto tried to talk himself into picking the Browns to upset the Rams. And he failed. If someone with such a badass name couldn’t pull it off, what hope have I? The win over the Jets came at a price (see above injured players). And Cleveland will not be facing a backup’s backup. The Browns will be going up against Jared Goff, one of the best young QBs in the league today. By hook or by crook, Goff has already been to a Super Bowl. So he’s experienced beyond his years. I know the season is young, but Cleveland has been rather inconsistent. They made short work of a bad team. On the other hand, they were badly beaten by a mediocre team as well. The Rams are the toughest test to date. And like Mr. Pluto, the Browns will fail. I mean, even the Rams’ special teams are terrifying. Cleveland has a decent defense, but three points might be too much to ask of it.
