NFL football gambling expectations are growing for the Rams due to a much improved defense and quarterback Sam Bradford, who is developing into a betting on NFL football asset.
The Arizona Cardinals will host the St. Louis Rams on Sunday with a kickoff set for 4:20 PM ET and a telecast on FOX. Sports-Gambling will have the side and total odds on this NFC West showdown so be sure and open an account.
The St. Louis Rams have a record of 5-6 straight up and 8-3 with the NFL lines and have gone under the total in 6 of 11 games. St. Louis is lucky to play in the NFC West, the worst division in pro football, as they are tied for first place with Seattle.
The Rams are coming off a 36-33 win at Denver last week which snapped a 2 game losing streak as they went over the total for the 3rd consecutive game. The Rams have shown dramatic improvement on defense from a year ago as they rank 15th for points allowed while also improving on offense to climb to 19th in the NFL for passing.
Rookie Sam Bradford has an 82.0 QB rating and a solid 17/9 TD/INT ratio.
The Arizona Cardinals likely had any hopes for a playoff berth ruined last Monday as they were dominated by San Francisco in a 27-6 home loss. The Cardinals now have a record of 3-8 both straight up and with the NFL gambling odds and have gone over the total in 7 of 11 games.
Arizona has covered just 1 out of their 5 home games this year. The Cardinals may have been too hasty in cutting ties with quarterback Matt Leinart as Derek Anderson has shown everyone why Cleveland got rid of him as he has an embarrassing 68.2 QB rating with a 7/9 TD/INT ratio.
The horrible Arizona offense ranks 31st in the NFL for scoring which has wasted a solid effort by the defense that ranks 11th overall in the NFL.
The Rams have covered 5 of their last 7 NFL football gambling matchups at Arizona and this series has gone under the total in 5 of the last 6 matchups at Arizona.
