Eagles at Rams NFL Week 15 Lines & Pick for Sunday Night

Written by on December 13, 2018

If recent history has shown us anything in the NFL, it is that getting back to the Super Bowl for a second straight year is incredibly tough. In fact, we now frequently see teams get there on a year and miss the playoffs or go out early the next, with the Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons being prime examples. When the Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl last season, an entire city heaved a sigh of relief, but they also believed that they had a team set to dominate for quite some time.

After all, they won the whole thing with a backup QB under center, so the feeling was that things would get even better once Carson Wentz got back in the fold. Things have not played put that way, though, as the Eagles sit a game below .500, outside of the playoffs, and potentially one loss away from elimination. They will be in primetime this weekend versus the LA Rams, an elite team that has already punched a playoff ticket. The Rams are an 11-point favorite for this one, with the point total set at 52 ½.

Why bet on the Philadelphia Eagles?

The Eagles still had a legitimate shot at winning the NFC East heading into last weekend, but a loss to the Dallas Cowboys now makes that division crown seem a million miles away. That loss killed a positive run that has seen Philly win back to back games to get back in the hunt, but there may have been even more to the loss than just the defeat at the hands of a division rival. It now looks as though Wentz may be sidelined once again, which is very close to when he went down last season.

Can Nick Foles come in and lead this team to another magical run? Recent trends suggest that they might be able to do some damage this week, as the Eagles have taken 4 of the last 6 versus the Rams on the road, as well as winning 5 straight against them. They have also covered in the last 5 meetings with LA.

Why bet on the LA Rams?

The Rams have already punched their playoff ticket, but we should not expect them to take their foot off the pedal just yet, as there is still the business of the #1 seed in the NFC to attend to. The Rams will also be looking to make amends for a poor showing last week when they only managed to post 6 points against the Chicago Bears in a 15-6 loss.

Eagles vs Rams is going to be a great Sunday Night Game.

That’s a low mark by anyone’s count, but especially so when you have a Rams team averaging close to 33 PPG this season. Despite their lofty 11-2 SU record, the Rams have not been a particularly good ATS bet, going just 1-4-1 in their last 6 games. They are also just 2-3-1 ATS as a home favorite this season.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction for Eagles at Rams

I would be very surprised to see the LA Rams lose back to back games, especially against an Eagles team with such obvious injury issues. As much as I like LA to win, I do not like them ATS.

Score: Philadelphia Eagles 20 – LA Rams 30
