Football betting has seen few bright spots from the Rams while the Atlanta Falcons have been arguably the most surprising NFL football betting value on the board in 2008. Their have been few football betting highlights for the St. Louis Rams in 2008.
The Rams entered the stretch run of the football betting season with a record of 2-12 straight up and 4-10 against the NFL odds. The Rams were equally bad at home or away with 2-5 marks against the spread either way.
The Rams carried virtually no NFL football betting respect from the very start of the season as they were a dog in all of those games. St. Louis was consistently week on both sides of the line ranking 27th overall on offense while ranking 29th overall on defense.
After beating the football betting line in their first 3 games under Jim Haslett, (who took over as coach in St. Louis’ 5th game of the season), the Rams went right back into the tank and dropped 6 of the next 7 games that followed against the spread.
At one time the NFL football betting rumor was that Haslett would remain as coach but that appears more unlikely due to the collapse of the team. The Atlanta Falcons have arisen from the football betting ashes to become a great story and a profitable team for 2008.
Quarterback Matt Ryan has helped football betting fans forget Michael Vick as the Falcons rank 5th overall on offense. Atlanta had an overall football betting record of 9-5 straight up and 8-6 against the NFL odds. In home football betting action the Falcons were 5-2 against the spread with 4 of the 7 games going over the total.
As a football betting favorite the Falcons were 4-2 against the spread. The Falcons great season did cost them some football betting value down the stretch as they got the cash in 8 of their first 12 games before failing to cover the number in the next 2 games that followed.
