This is a tough one. The game should not be close in the cold of Green Bay but there are some indications the books believe the Packers win by six points here. The books have yet to touch the -6, at least as of Saturday morning. Books have been hovering between -6.5 and -7 Green Bay with 70% or greater of the action on the Packers with both the spread and moneyline.
Aaron Donald (ribs) and leading wide receiver Cooper Kupp (knee) were both questionable to play earlier in the week. And we are not sure of how Jared Goff will play following surgery on his throwing thumb.
The Rams though are 21-7-1 Against The Spread in their last 29 vs. NFC and 13-6 ATS in their last 19 road games.
The favorite is 9-1 ATS in their last 10 meetings.
The Rams defense is one of the best in the league. They were also second in rushing EPA on defense. The Packers have not exactly lit it up against solid defenses.
This might explain why the books think this one could be close. They haven’t even moved above the 7.
Gambling911.com will be on the Rams +7 here.
