NFL Betting: St Louis Rams vs. New England Patriots

The Patriots (4-2 SU, 3-3 ATS) host the Rams (2-4 SU & ATS) at Gillette Stadium in a Week 8 inter-conference NFL betting match-up this Sunday afternoon.

Kickoff is scheduled for 1:00 ET.  New England is 1-7 ATS in its last eight home games, and the underdog is 4-0 ATS the last four times these two teams have squared off.  The Patriots were a three point favorite over the Denver Broncos Monday night in New England, with the ‘total’ predicted to be 48.

New England completely obliterated Denver in this pro football betting contest.  Patriots second string quarterback Matt Cassel threw three touchdown passes in the game, two of them to wide receiver Randy Moss, and New England was up a whopping 34-0 in at the end of the third quarter.

Football bettors that backed the Patriots to cover the NFL odds won this one with plenty of room to spare.  Unfortunately for those bettors who picked either side of the over/under, both teams added a touchdown in the final quarter to render the final ‘total’ at 48, a push.

The Rams hosted the Dallas Cowboys at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis last Sunday.  Dallas was favored by nine-points in that NFL betting contest, with the ‘total’ expected to be 45.

The Rams scored three touchdowns in the first quarter on two Steven Jackson runs and a QB Marc Bulger pass. Jackson ran for a third touchdown, a 56 yard run, in the third quarter, to give St. Louis the shocking 31-7 lead.

The Rams got the upset victory by a final count of 34-14, as NFL bettors who picked the Cowboys to cover the football betting line got served with a loss.  Players who picked the over fared better as their number came in with three points to spare.

The New England Patriots are seven point favorites over the St. Louis Rams Sunday afternoon in Foxboro, Massachusetts, with the ‘total’ standing pat at 43.5.
