Written by on November 25, 2022

The Los Angeles Rams (3-7) and the Kansas City Chiefs (8-2) square off for an exciting NFL Sunday matchup at Arrowhead Stadium. The Rams are surprisingly last in the NFC West and have lost four straight contests. Meanwhile, the Chiefs have the best overall record in the AFC, and they look to win their fourth straight game. 

Who will come out in this matchup? Let’s take a look at the Rams vs. Chiefs best bets in this game.

Rams vs. Chiefs preview game

Rams Must Turn it Around to Get in the Playoffs

As Thanksgiving approaches, the Rams are in disarray. They have dropped their last four games after losing 27-20 to the Saints in Week 11. As a result of Matthew Stafford being put into the concussion protocol, Bryce Perkins will start for the Rams in Week 12.

The Rams will look to get a better overall performance from both of their offense and defense after mustering just 20 points and allowing 27. Matthew Stafford and the offense totaled just 338 yards, and the offense punted six times. The defensive unit surrendered 27 points and were picked apart in the air for three passing touchdowns. 

Bryce Perkins gets the start, and it will be interesting to see how Sean McVay utilizes his dual-threat ability. The Rams will look to break their four-game losing streak as they search for answers against one of the best teams in the league. 

Chiefs Rolling with Four Straight Wins

The Chiefs have vaulted out to an 8-2 start thanks to another strong game against one of their division opponents. Even with a cluster of wide receiver injuries plaguing Kansas City, the Chiefs’ offense still manages to score a lot of points, as they posted 30 against the Chargers.

Mecole Hardman, Kadarius Toney, and Juju Smith-Schuster are all currently injured and missed last week’s game against the Chargers. It didn’t matter for Patrick Mahomes as he tossed three touchdowns while guiding the offense to 485 yards of offense.

The offense has been able to mask Kansas City’s defensive shortcomings so far this season, as they lead the league with 30.1 points scored per game. Despite this, their defense is allowing 23.3 points per game and will look to put together a strong outing against the Rams.

Betting Lines & Odds 

According to MyBookie, the Chiefs are -14.5 point favorites (-110) at home against the Rams on Sunday. With the Rams starting a new quarterback, they will be +750 underdogs on the moneyline, while the Chiefs will be -1150 home favorites. When it comes to the total, MyBookie has the Over/Under listed at 44 points.

Betting Pick

The Rams are on fumes at this point. Both the offense and the defense have not played to their expectations this year, and Matthew Stafford is out in this game with a concussion. The Rams have not been able to put wins together, as they are 0-3-1 ATS in their last four contests and 1-5-1 ATS in their last seven.

The Chiefs come into this matchup as heavy favorites, but it is all warranted as they lead the league in points. Despite this, the Chiefs are 1-4-1 ATS in their last six games, and this number is too high to cover. 

Bryce Perkins actually played pretty well in the second half, surprisingly. Although he doesn’t have a ton of experience, Sean McVay should give the Rams a good game plan heading into this one. Don’t trust a Chiefs defense that is conceding 23.3 points per game; expect the Rams to keep this one within two scores. 

  • Prediction: Rams +14.5 (-110)
