Why bet on LAR versus Green Bay?
In the past couple of weeks, the Rams offense has been at a standstill. Los Angeles scored just 16 points against the Titans. In LAR’s last game, the Rams scored an awful 10 points versus the 49ers. Matthew Stafford and the Rams are much better than what they’ve showed. Not only that, but Odell Beckham plays in his second game with the Rams on Sunday. Beckham and Stafford should ensure Los Angeles puts point on the board.

Why bet on Green Bay versus LAR?
Green Bay hasn’t lost two in a row yet this season. Although the Rams are a good team, the Packers should go back to doing what they do well, which is win games after playing solid defense and dominating on offense. Even though Minnesota beat Green Bay, Aaron Rodgers had a stellar game. The expectation is that Green Bay gets back to playing Packer football, which means a victory since this happens at Lambeau.

Los Angeles Rams at Green Bay Packers Final Betting Prediction
The Rams played so well early on that NFL handicappers may have read too much into their ability to win their division, much less the Super Bowl.
Los Angeles struggled versus NFC West rival Arizona. Then after wins against four bad teams: Seattle, the Giants, Detroit, and Houston, the Rams played awful in a loss to the Derrick Henry-less Tennessee Titans.
But although the Rams looked terrible in losing to Tennesse, they looked down right pathetic on Monday night in a loss to the San Francisco 49ers. The Niners blasted Los Angeles 31-10 in a game that showed exactly how far LAR has fallen.
The problem appears to be on both sides of the football. The Rams defense now allows an average of over 240 passing yards and over 105 rushing yards. Opponents score close to 23 per game versus LAR.
The offensive line is a mess. The Titans forced Stafford to throw 2 picks and sacked the Rams’ QB 5 times. The 49ers sacked Stafford twice and picked him off twice.
The odds make Green Bay a huge overlay. The Packers should be -4 ½ to -6 favorites. So the fact this is a pick game is almost laughable.
