The Los Angeles Rams will travel to play the Baltimore Ravens in a showdown on Sunday afternoon.

The Los Angeles Rams are 11-4 this season and have won four games in a row. The Rams are coming off of a win against Minnesota by a score of 30-23 in their last game. Stafford struggled in this game, throwing three interceptions, but was able to play well enough to get the win. Los Angeles is averaging 27.7 points per game and is giving up 21.7 points per game against, while also averaging 276.1 passing yards per game and 103.1 rushing yards per game. Matthew Stafford has completed 66.9% of his passes for 4,339 yards, 36 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions for the Rams. Sony Michel has rushed for 728 yards and 3 touchdowns, while Cooper Kupp has caught 132 passes for 1,734 yards and 14 touchdowns. The Stafford-Kupp connection has been unbelievable this year as they are putting up video game numbers together.

The Baltimore Ravens are 8-7 this season and have lost four games in a row. Baltimore lost to Cincinnati by a score of 41-21 in their last game. The Ravens defense allowed Joe Burrow to throw for 525 yards and 4 touchdowns in this game. Baltimore is averaging 23.7 points per game and is giving up 23.7 points per game against, while also averaging 244.5 passing yards per game and 137.7 rushing yards per game. The Ravens haven’t named a starting quarterback for this game, but it will be either Lamar Jackson or Tyler Huntley. Lamar Jackson is battling through an ankle injury but the Ravens are hoping he can play. Jackson has passed for 2,882 yards, 16 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions, while also adding 767 rushing yards and 2 touchdowns. Devonta Freeman has rushed for 479 yards and 5 touchdowns, while Mark Andrews has caught 93 passes for 1,187 yards and 9 touchdows for the Ravens.

The Rams are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 January games. The over is 4-1-1 in LA’s last 6 road games. Baltimore is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as a home underdog. The over is 9-3 in Baltimore’s last 12 home games. The favorite is 4-0-1 ATS in these two teams last 5 meetings.

Baltimore comes into this game in rough shape and is watching their playoff hopes slip away. The Rams are making the cross-country trip, but are on a nice win streak. The Baltimore defense has been very bad throughout the last few games, which should mean a big game for Stafford and the Rams. I like the over here.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
