The home team is 7-2 ATS in their last 9 meetings.

The Dallas Cowboys are getting better by the week and outside of having issues stopping the run, they're one of the best defenses in the league. The Los Angeles Rams have yet to get going offensively, and even at home, it's hard to see this being the game where they break out. The Rams look nothing like the team from a year ago, and I'm kind of surprised they're getting this much love from oddsmakers. I'll take my chances with the Cowboys and the free points.
