Why St. Louis Will Win

The online sports betting legal world had its eyes opened this past weekend, as an NFL underdog upstaged one of the most exciting and impressive rookies in the league.
The Washington Redskins were the surprise story of week one, as rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III eviscerated the New Orleans Saints and led the Skins to a huge upset. Griffin didn't disappoint in his follow-up act, either, but the St. Louis Rams were able to overcome him, anyway. That's not what the narrative around the NFL suggested in the hours before the Redskins-Rams contest began.

Under new head coach Jeff Fisher. St. Louis's offense finally looked like a legitimate NFL offense versus Washington. The Rams fixed their protection schemes and gave quarterback Sam Bradford ample time in the pocket. St. Louis moved the ball consistently, hit big plays when they were there for the taking, and outscored Griffin in a 31-28 thriller. The Rams have to be elated with the way Bradford – their big-money quarterback – performed on Sunday, given the investment they've made in the 2008 Heisman Trophy winner. Griffin is a Heisman winner himself, having taken home the precious piece of hardware last year, but Bradford was able to outduel him. This has to give St. Louis a ton of confidence for the road ahead.

The Rams have a great chance to win this specific game because Chicago is a team immersed in bickering and drama at the moment. Receiver Brandon Marshall looked very disinterested for sections of the team's week-two loss at Green Bay. Quarterback Jay Cutler was irate during the second half of that contest. He was lighting into teammates despite the fact that he wasn't carrying his share of the workload. Chicago has more overall talent than the Rams, but the Bears could easily crumble in a heartbeat.

Why Chicago Will Win

The football betting experts who are dissecting this game are aware of the fact that the Bears lost to an elite team, the Green Bay Packers, last week. If Chicago had imploded against the Jacksonville Jaguars or the Minnesota Vikings, there would be much more cause for alarm in the Bears' camp. However, since Chicago fell to Green Bay, nobody in the organization should feel particularly worried about this contest. The Rams are getting better, but they still need to prove they can win on the road. Chicago is not flourishing right now by any stretch, but the Bears have the offensive firepower needed to outscore the Rams if this does become a shootout. Having more rest and preparation time (after playing last Thursday) should also help the Bears to play at or near their best in this game. St. Louis would not have much of a chance of Chicago brings it’s A-game to the stadium.

Who Will Win

It’s Chicago's game to lose. The Rams are making progress, but Chicago is the team that expects to win now. St. Louis' time is in the future, not the present moment.
