Rams vs. Arizona Cardinals: Betting odds, lines, picks and predictions

Both Los Angeles teams go into Week 3 with 1-1 records and a decent opportunity to get to the plus side of .500. The Rams are 3½- or 4-point favorites against the Cardinals, who are in the first of six Go play against NFC West opponents.

Two weeks into the season we’ve seen big upsets, surprising 2-0 teams, unsurprising 0-2 teams and lots of sloppy football with few teams taking the pre-season seriously. The more games we get, the more everything should level out, which will hopefully lead to a bit more predictability for weather.

Los Angeles Rams (-3.5, 48.5) with the Arizona Cardinals

Arizona’s incredible comeback last week was crowned by a game-winning scoop-and-score in overtime when the Raiders spat it out on the edge of the field goal range. This potential kick could have been a game winner for Las Vegas, and that line would likely have been 4.5 or 5. Instead, the Cardinals walked away, erasing a 16-point deficit with less than nine minutes remaining in the fourth quarter.

Here you should definitely pay attention to overreactions in the betting market. The Rams beat the Falcons by just four, but Atlanta scored 17 points in garbage time as the Rams led by 25 points late in the third quarter. Sure, there are concerns for the Rams, who committed three more turnovers and also had a major special team mishap, returning a blocked punt for a touchdown. Matthew Stafford also looked a lot more comfortable and Los Angeles took four of five chances in the red zone.

The lack of attention to detail was disappointing, but the Rams took their chances and built up a nice cushion before getting lax. Even veteran winning teams need a reminder to play 60 minutes every now and then, and we should see a better performance this week against the Cardinals, who have the most points allowed in the NFL and are in the bottom five in yards per game allowed.

The Cardinals have one of the worst secondaries in the league on paper and have just one sack with no interceptions. This should be a good game for the Rams, who are full of talent but need to start minimizing mistakes.

Choice: Aries -3.5
