Rams at Lions NFL Week 13 Spread, Preview & Prediction

Written by on November 28, 2018

As a fan of one particular team in the NFL, the dream is always to see your team make and win the Super Bowl. For the neutrals, things are a little bit different, as it’s usually hoping that we get a championship game featuring the best teams in the league in any given season.

There are sure to be a lot of folks now pulling for a Super Bowl that features the Kansas City Chiefs and the LA Rams, as those two served up an instant classic when they met in Week 12. It was the Rams who won that 54-51, and while that sounds like a game where the defenses were shocking, the reality is that it was a game filled with a number of big defensive plays. The Rams continue to sit in one of the bye spots in the NFC and will look to stay there when they hit the road this weekend to face the Detroit Lions. The Rams are in as a 9 ½ point favorite for this one, with the point total set at 55.

Why bet on the LA Rams?

The Rams continue to be an offensive juggernaut, as their 54 points last week now means that they are averaging over 36 PPG this season. They have been somewhat forced into posting big numbers, though, as their defense is giving up over 26 PPG, which is not the sort of number that you expect to see from a championship winning team.

Until defenses can figure out a way to slow down Goff, Gurley, and the rest, they are going to continue picking up wins. While the Rams have been great on the road, winning 7 of their last 8 away from home, they have not had a lot of success in Detroit, going just 1-4 SU in their last 5 visits. They have not been a very good ATS bet either, going 1-5-2 in their last 8 games. 5 of the last 7 meetings between these two have seen the point total go OVER.

Why bet on the Detroit Lions?

With the recent trade that sent WR Golden Tate out of Detroit, it would seem that the Lions have given up on this season. They have a lot of money invested in Matthew Stafford at the QB position, yet they are doing little to surround him with weapons to throw to.

Rams at Lions should be an easy victory for LA.

The result is that the Lions now have just 1 win in their last 5 games and are averaging a little over 21 PPG, a number that is dropping with each passing week. During the last 5 games, the Lions have only surpassed that average once. They have also only managed to cover the spread once in their last 5 starts and are 2-4 ATS in their last 6 meetings with the LA Rams.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction for Rams at Lions

I just don’t see any scenario where the Lions offense is able to keep pace with the Rams. We know that LA is going to put points up on the board, and I believe they will do more than enough to help cover the spread and take the point total OVER.

Score: LA Rams 35 – Detroit Lions 21
