The Rams and Eagles are both coming off Week 4 wins, with the Rams defeating the Indianapolis Colts on the road in overtime and the Eagles also venturing into overtime against the Washington Commanders. The Eagles are 2-1-1 ATS, while the Rams are 3-0-1.
This season, the Rams offense has been clicking, with quarterback Matthew Stafford playing excellent football despite his injury history and wide receiver Cooper Kupp missing due to his injuries. In his place is a wide receiver named Puka Nacua, who has 39 receptions for 501 yards and a touchdown through four games. His four games this season include three 119+ yard performances.
However, while better than last season, the Rams offensive line is still nowhere near talented enough to handle this Eagles defensive front consisting of Josh Sweat, Jalen Carter, Fletcher Cox, Haason Reddick, and more.
Defensively, the Rams defensive front is always a threat with Aaron Donald there, but the Eagles offensive line should be able to hold up as well as anyone can when facing Donald.
The Rams secondary is also beatable, with Ahkello Witherspoon and Derion Kendrick manning the two starting cornerback positions. They’ve been playing solid football this season, but against A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith, it’s going to be a more difficult matchup.
We have our three best bets for this game. You can place your bets at DraftKings using our exclusive link.
The Rams have shown to be a productive offense this season, and while they’ll come through in this game here and there, this offensive line against the Eagles defensive line will be a massive problem. The Rams will need to use more personnel to help protect Stafford. He’s already an injury concern, and this defensive front is nothing to take for granted.
Offensively, the Eagles aren’t as potent as last season, but they’re still one of the better units in the league, especially with how well this offensive line performs, allowing running back D’Andre Swift to run at will.
Look for the Eagles defensive front to overwhelm the Rams offensive line and the Eagles offense to move the ball successfully through the air on the ground.
While we pick the Eagles to cover the spread here at -4, we expect this to be a higher-scoring matchup.
Again, the Rams offense has played excellently this season. There’s a deep threat in Tutu Atwell, and Nacua catches almost every ball thrown his way.
The problem for the Rams is the Eagles defensive front, but their cornerback and secondary are easily beatable, especially with this passing attack from the Eagles.
Nacua will match up plenty against Josh Jobe here, which is an incredibly easy matchup.
We think the Eagles win this one, though, 32-27.
Looking at both offenses, the Rams simply have more big-play potential here. Stafford has two games with an average depth of target of 10.4 yards or more, and he’s completed seven of 15 passes downfield for 20+ yards for 232 yards.
The Eagles cornerbacks, Jobe and Darius Slay, haven’t played great this season, and we could easily see an Atwell bomb for a score at some point.
