The St. Louis Rams and Denver Broncos both had a miserable week on the gridiron. Each of these faltering teams are in desperate need of a win when they meet on Sunday.

Why To Bet On The Rams

St. Louis did fall last Sunday to the Atlanta Falcons, but it’s worth noting that in the final four minutes of regulation, coach Steve Spagnuolo’s team was trailing by only nine points, 26-17, and had a first-and-goal inside the Atlanta 5. Then disaster struck when quarterback Sam Bradford – who had gone 169 passes without throwing an interception, an NFL record for rookie quarterbacks – got picked off on, of all things, a shovel pass near the Atlanta goal line. The interception prevented a likely Ram touchdown that would have made the score 26-24 with over three minutes remaining. When one considers that Atlanta has the best record in the NFC right now, the Rams played the Falcons quite competitively. St. Louis is not a hugely deficient team and can play many NFL clubs on very even terms. The woeful Broncos certainly won’t scare the Rams; Denver just got crushed by the San Diego Chargers on Monday Night Football, 35-14. The Rams beat the very same Chargers earlier in the season.

Given that Bradford went 169 passes without throwing a pick, if the promising first-year player from Oklahoma can avoid interceptions in this game – and it’s very reasonable to think he can – the Rams have a very good shot against an erratic 3-7 opponent coming off a Monday night game and, therefore, an abbreviated week of rest and practice.

Why To Bet On The Broncos

The St. Louis Rams, very simply yet instructively, have a problem winning games on the road. There’s just no other way to say it. Other than a blowout loss in Detroit, road wins have been within easy reach for this team; they’ve almost landed in the Rams' waiting arms. However, on all three occasions, the Rams were nipped at the wire in wrenching defeats. St. Louis wound up losing by two at the Oakland Raiders, by one at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and by three at the San Francisco 49ers. The Rams led the first two of those games at the half and were tied at halftime against San Francisco. The loss to the 49ers a few weeks ago was particularly appalling. The Niners allowed five sacks, were 0 for 11 on third downs, and committed 14 penalties for 105 yards. Yet, San Francisco was able to come back and dig out a 23-20 overtime win. What’s worse about St. Louis is that the Rams are a terrible fourth-quarter team. St. Louis has been outscored 21-3 in the fourth quarter over its last two games, and as the losses to Oakland and Tampa Bay illustrate to an even greater degree, the Rams have a problem closing teams down. Denver could definitely get healthy against an opponent such as St. Louis.

How The Game Will Play Out

This is a coin-flip game because both teams are so undependable. Denver does have the short week, but the Rams’ road woes represent a larger sign of concern. The Broncos will find a way to win this game by a touchdown and cover the number at home.
