The Rams are 9-1-1 ATS in these two teams last 11 head to head meetings.
Los Angeles avoided a near collapse in the fourth quarter of their last game, while Arizona was able to complete a huge comeback against the Raiders. Los Angeles has struggled on defense this season and will face a good offensive attack in this game. I don’t trust this Rams defense, so I am going to take Arizona with the points at home.
