Tips for Betting on Los Angeles Rams in 2019
Before the 2018 season started, football fans had extremely high expectations for the Los Angeles Rams. They had a busy offseason, assembled one of the league’s most star-studded rosters and were looking like a team on the rise in the NFC.
The Rams didn’t disappoint, starting last season 8-0 and finishing with a 13-3 record. The Rams also made it all the way to the Super Bowl.
Despite finishing the regular season with the second highest-scoring offense in the league (32.9 ppg), the Rams only mustered up three points in the championship game and lost to Tom Brady and the Patriots.
Heading into 2019, the Rams bring back most of their key personnel including QB Jared Goff, DT Aaron Donald, RB Todd Gurley, and Head Coach Sean McVay. The health of Gurley’s knee is a major question mark for Los Angeles as rumors swirl that they’ll reduce his workload this season. After trading away their first-round draft pick, the Rams made their first selection late in the second round, selecting Washington safety Taylor Rapp.
Including the regular season and postseason, the Rams finished right around .500 in both cover percentage and over percentage. Against the point spread they were particularly streaky. From weeks 4-15, the Rams only covered the spread twice.
After that, they covered in four straight games, including the controversial NFC Championship Game vs. the Saints. The Rams offense, which was unstoppable at times last season, has two major question marks heading into 2019. First, QB Jared Goff struggled down the stretch and is coming off a disastrous Super Bowl. RB Todd Gurley, who was in MVP contention for most of the season, appears to be suffering through a chronic knee injury which many believe will impact his effectiveness this season.
Keep these key stats and trends from last year in mind if you plan to bet on the Rams this season:
- The Rams were remarkably even vs. the spread last season and went 9-9-1 to finish the year with a dead-even 50.0 cover percentage.
- The Rams were nearly even in-game totals last season going 7-8-1 on the over.
- The Rams have five primetime games in 2019, including both of their games vs. Seattle (week 5 at Seattle, week 14 at home). The Seahawks are the biggest threat to the Rams in the NFC West.

The Rams are ready to turn the page on last year’s disappointing Super Bowl performance and claim their first championship since 1999. With Goff, McVay, and Gurley back in the fold, the Rams are as big a threat as any team in the league to win the Lombardi Trophy.
Folks residing in California and hoping to get some money action on their teams are still going to have to look elsewhere – at least for this coming season. That likely means more money leaving California for Nevada or surrounding areas.
- Progress to legalize sports gambling is mainly hampered by existing gambling compacts between the state and indigenous groups that already control a large part of the legal casino gaming industry.
- Legalizing sports betting may require an amendment to California’s state constitution and/or successful renegotiation of state/tribal agreements.
