The Los Angeles Rams are 2.5-points road favorites against the New Orleans Saints, according to online betting USA establishments. This matchup could give the best online sportsbooks an inkling of what the NFC title game will be like. It will also be a clash between two students of the game. “I am a huge fan of Sean’s and I have gotten to know him and have a ton of respect for what he has done going on his second year,” Saints head coach Sean Payton said of his namesake and colleague Sean McVay. “They’re a must-watch team.”

The Rams head coach responded in kind. “I look at their tape every week, see what they’re doing,” McVay said. “I also appreciate the aggressive nature that coach Payton comes after people. That mindset of never being afraid to fail and always attacking is something that we try to do. It demonstrates a confidence and belief in your players.”

Betting LA Rams

The Rams have the best ground attack in the league. And their defense ranks No. 7 in sacks. Needless to say they excel on both sides of the ball. As far as online betting USA trends, the Rams are 11-1 SU in their last 12 on the road. Those 11 wins have come by an average margin of 14.5 points. The Rams beat the Saints SU and ATS last season.

This could easily go either way. So much so it’s a wonder it’s not what we in the online betting USA biz call a “pick’em.” The Saints have won six straight since their fluke loss to the Bucs. Moreover, they are nigh unbeatable at home. The Rams may be unbeatable, but they sure as Sheisse are unbeaten. Both offenses are pretty much on par with each other. However, the Rams’ defense is much better than the Saints’. So let’s go out on a limb here and take the Rams and the points.
