Why Bet On Los Angeles?

Despite the fact that they’ve dropped three straight and come into this contest off a humbling 20-7 home loss against San Francisco this past weekend, there are some good reasons to back the Rams in this Week 7 matchup. First, Los Angeles is statistically better than Atlanta on both sides of the ball. Then, there’s the fact that the Falcons are completely awful on defense in ranking a dismal 31st in points allowed (31.0 ppg) while allowing a whopping 87 points over their last two games. Last but not least, the Rams still have a ton of talent on both sides of the ball and they will definitely be highly motivated to snap their three-game skid.

Why Bet On Atlanta?

Outside of the fact that the Falcons are playing at home and playing against a struggling Rams team that was just limited to seven points last weekend, there aren’t many reasons to back the Falcons in this matchup. Atlanta is averaging a modest 22.5 points per game, so they’re clearly not putting points on the board like we were expecting coming into this season. Despite the fact that the Falcons still have some talent of their own on both sides of the ball, the Falcons are undeniably playing well below their talent level and that points directly at head coach Dan Quinn.

Team Statistics

  • Average Score For: 20.40
  • Total Yards: 380.80
  • Pass Yards: 313.20

Rams vs Falcons Expert Analysis and Prediction

The Rams have won five straight in this NFC rivalry including a 26-13 home win last season. Los Angeles has also won two of its three road games this season while Atlanta has split their two home games to date.

The Rams are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games while the Falcons have gone 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games after allowing more than 30 points in their previous game.
