Over at LA Memorial Coliseum on Sunday, the New Orleans Saints and the Los Angeles Rams will be meeting up in NFL action.
After dropping their first two games, New Orleans has heated up with eight straight wins for an 8-2 record overall. In the Saints’ most recent win this past Sunday against Washington in OT, QB Drew Brees put up 385 yards with two touchdowns and one pick.
On the year, Brees has put up 2783 yards with 15 TDs and five INTs, and Mark Ingram is the top Saints rusher with 806 yards and eight TDs. Heading up the New Orleans receiving corps is Michael Thomas, with 753 yards and two scores off 65 catches.
Over on the LA side, they’re sitting at 7-3 on the year. The Rams had a four-game win streak going, but that was snapped with a 24-7 loss to the Vikings this past Sunday. In that matchup, Rams QB Jared Goff put up 225 yards on 23-of-37 passing.
This year, Goff has managed 2610 yards with 16 TDs and four picks, and Todd Gurley leads the LA rush with 791 yards and eight scores. Robert Woods is the Rams’ top receiver with 703 yards and four TDs off 47 catches.
The Saints are 8-1 in their last nine games following a straight-up win and 4-1 ATS in their last five games in November. New Orleans is also 19-7 ATS in their last 26 road games and 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 versus the NFC.
Meanwhile, the Rams are 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall and 7-15 ATS in their last 22 during Week 12. LA is also 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12 home games and 3-11-1 ATS in their last 15 versus the NFC.
After a few dominant wins, the Saints nearly blew it against the Redskins but stormed back in the late stages of the game. New Orleans is one of the hottest teams in the NFL right now. As for the Rams, they were cruising but put up a dud against the Vikings. Given the Saints’ resurgent defense, I like New Orleans to hang in here and cover. In reality it’s probably a game to stay away from though.
