The Los Angeles Rams took the league by storm a year ago by becoming one of the most memorable ‘worst-to-first’ teams in recent NFL memory. Not only did the Rams win the NFC West in 2017, but they completely transformed their franchise from a dull, mostly moribund group of underachievers under former head coach Jeff Fisher into one of the most entertaining teams and most explosive offenses in the league under now, second-year head coach Sean McVay.
Now, as they get set for the upcoming 2018 regular season, the Rams are looking to build on their fantastic 11-win season from a year ago, while making a legitimate run at reaching Super Bowl 53 at the very least. If you’re looking to cash in on L.A.’s regular season win total odds and you need a bit of assistance with figuring out just how many games the Rams will win this coming season, then look no further. I’ve got you covered NFL betting enthusiasts!
Los Angeles Rams 2018 NFL Win/Loss Odds Prediction
Week 1: Monday, Sept. 10, at Oakland Raiders, 10:20 p.m. ET
The Rams might be on the road in their regular season opener. But I like them to get the win against a Raiders team that is in a bit of a reload mode under former head coach Jon Gruden. This one looks like a thriller just waiting to happen. Win. 1-0.
Week 2: Sunday, Sept. 16, vs. Arizona Cardinals, 4:05 p.m. ET
The Cardinals will have a new head coach and new starting quarterback in 2018 and that just doesn’t bode well heading into their Week 2 matchup against their NFC West division rivals. Win. 2-0.
Week 3: Sunday, Sept. 23, vs. Los Angeles Chargers, 4:05 p.m. ET
Both of these teams have legitimate Super Bowl hopes, but only one has the masterful Wade Phillips on their sideline. I like the Rams for the narrow ‘road upset’. Win. 3-0.
Week 4: Thursday, Sept. 27, vs. Minnesota Vikings, 8:20 p.m. ET
After losing to their conference rivals 24-7 in Week 11 last season, Jared Goff and the Rams will be looking for revenge against in this Thursday Night Football showdown. I like the Rams to get it in their third thriller in four weeks. Win. 4-0.
Week 5: Sunday, Oct. 7, at Seattle Seahawks, 4:25 p.m. ET
The Rams split with the division rival Seahawks last season and I expect more of the same in 2018. Loss. 4-1.
Week 6: Sunday, Oct. 14, at Denver Broncos, 4:05 p.m. ET
Can former Rams quarterback Case Keenum duplicate his career season from a year ago? Maybe, but I don’t think the Broncos have the defense to stop L.A. Win. 5-1.
Week 7: Sunday, Oct. 21, at San Francisco 49ers, 8:20 p.m. ET
The Niners narrowly lost to the Rams last season and then beat L.A. The Rams beat the Niners senseless in their 34-13 Week 17 road win, but lost to Frisco 41-39 in Week 3. I’m sensing a regular season split is looming in 2018. Loss. 5-2.
Week 8: Sunday, Oct. 28, vs. Green Bay Packers, 4:25 p.m. ET
Jared Goff won’t necessarily outplay fellow Cal alumn Aaron Rodgers in this Week 8 showdown, but I like the Rams to get the big home win over Green Bay, especially seeing as how I expect the Packers defense to be mediocre at best this coming season. Win. 6-2.
Week 9: Sunday, Nov. 4, at New Orleans Saints, 4:25 p.m. ET
The Rams picked up a hard-fought home win over the Saints in Week 12 last season, but Drew Brees and company get some revenge in this Week 9 matchup of Super Bowl title contenders. Loss. 7-2.
Week 10: Sunday, Nov. 11, vs. Seattle Seahawks, 4:25 p.m. ET
The Rams get some revenge for their Week 5 road loss in Seattle. Win. 8-2.
Week 11: Monday, Nov. 19, vs. Kansas City Chiefs, 8:15 p.m. ET
I like Kansas City second-year quarterback Patrick Mahomes, but I’ve got to believe that Wade Phillips is going to find a way to confuse him in this matchup in Mexico. Win. 9-2.
Week 12: Bye.
Week 13: Sunday, Dec. 2, at Detroit Lions, 1:00 p.m. ET
The Lions have a first-time head coach in Matt Patricia and a bunch of questions marks at several key positions on both sides of the ball. The Rams win in Week 13 despite being on the road. Win. 10-2.
Week 14: Sunday, Dec. 9, at Chicago Bears, 1:00 p.m. ET
I like second-year Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky but he’s going to have a tough way to go against Aqib TTalib, Marcus Peters, Ndamukong Suh and Aaron Donald. Win. 11-2.
Week 15: Sunday, Dec. 16, vs. Philadelphia Eagles, 8:20 p.m. ET
Philly quarterback Carson Wentz injured his knee in last year’s Week 14 matchup, but the Birds still managed to get the high-scoring 43-35 win en route to the Super Bowl. This time around, Wentz avoids injury and Philly wins another thriller! Loss. 11-3.
Week 16: Sunday, Dec. 23, vs. Arizona Cardinals, 4:05 p.m. ET
Sweep, sweep, sweep. The superior Rams hold it down at home just prior to the playoffs! Win. 12-3.
Week 17: Sunday, Dec. 30, at San Francisco 49ers, 4:25 p.m. ET
The Rams get some revenge for their Week 7 road loss against Jimmy G and the Niners! Win 13-3.
The Rams are an absolute lock to top their super easy win total odds of nine victories in 2018. Throw some coold hard cash on this one for the easy pickings! Over 9 Wins!
