Patriots Rams Betting Predictions – Patriots Look To Finish Strong Overseas Versus Rams

Posted by Tony Bryant on 10/24/2012 6:43:30 PM

The New England Patriots have been one of the most difficult teams in the NFL to handicap so far this season. The combination of an offense that can’t seem to put away opponents late in games and a defense that can’t hold leads is a dangerous combination for a team that many expected to be among the true AFC contenders this season. A trip overseas to face the St. Louis Rams in the United Kingdom certainly won’t help the Patriots in terms of fresh legs, but considering the result the last time New England played a sports betting contest in the United Kingdom, it certainly won’t hurt.

The Patriots celebrated their first trip to the UK with a dominant 35-7 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and have won three games by double digits this season. St. Louis has followed up back-to-back wins with consecutive losses, and haven’t won away from home this season.

With the fifth-ranked passing game and fifth-ranked rushing attack, New England should have no problem holding late leads. However, after blowing a 10-point lead in a late 24-23 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in week six, the Patriots conceded another 10-point in the fourth quarter against the New York Jets, before escaping with a 29-26 overtime win. Head coach Bill Belichick is considered among the masterminds at identify problem areas and making the necessary adjustments, and it will be interesting to see how New England responds after another late collapse. The Patriots have done an excellent job defensively against the run, but it is the pass defense that has struggled in late game situations.

The Rams were among the biggest early season surprises with wins over the Washington Redskins, Seattle Seahawks, and Arizona Cardinals, but consecutive losses to the Miami Dolphins and Green Bay Packers have somewhat quieted that optimism. Consistency has been the biggest problem for a young team under new head coach Jeff Fisher, and despite signs that things can be turned around it will take some time. St. Louis has gotten an excellent contribution from wide receivers Brandon Gibson and Chris Givens in the absence of the injured Danny Amendola, and how well those two play this weekend against a suspect Patriots’ secondary will be among the keys to this game.

NFL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

While New England has had trouble holding leads late, it should be pointed out that they have had 10-point leads against each of their last two online sportsbook opponents, which means that they are at least close to putting it altogether. The spectacle of playing overseas at Wembley stadium could lean on the focus of this young Rams’ team, and it certainly wouldn’t help if there is rain, as the St. Louis rushing attack won’t match up well against the Patriots’ front-seven.
