The Los Angeles Rams will visit the Denver Broncos on Sunday from Sports Authority Field in Week 6 NFL activity.
The Rams enter this one at a perfect 5-0 on the season. LA has so far taken care of the Raiders 33-13, the Cardinals 34-0, the Chargers 35-23, the Vikings 38-31 and the Seahawks 33-31.
In the Seattle game, Rams QB Jared Goff logged 321 yards with one TD and two picks, while Todd Gurley carried the team on 77 yards and three TDs rushing. Robert Woods was the leading receiver for Los Angeles with 92 yards on five catches.
Over on the Broncos’ side, they’re sitting at 2-3 on the season. After opening things up with a pair of wins over the Seahawks and the Raiders, Denver has fallen in succession to the Ravens, Chiefs and Jets.
In the New York game, Denver QB Case Keenum posted 377 yards with two TDs and one pick, and Phillip Lindsay led the rush on 61 yards. Tops in receiving was Demaryius Thomas with 105 yards and a TD off five grabs.
The Rams are 12-5-1 ATS in their last 18 games in Week 6 and 2-5 ATS in their last seven following a straight-up win. The over is 4-0 in LA”s last four in Week 6 and 8-2 in their last 10 road games.
Meanwhile, the Broncos are 1-4 ATS in their last five in Week 6 and 3-13 ATS in their last 16 following an ATS loss. Denver is 0-3-1 ATS in their last four home games and 0-5 ATS versus a team with a winning record.
The Rams were an early favorite as a Super Bowl contender, and it looks like so far things are going to plan. LA has been great at putting up points this year (which is absolutely necessary in today’s NFL), logging at least 33 in each game. If there’s a blemish here, it’s that the Rams have given up 62 combined points over their last two outings.
As for the Broncos, their three straight losses (two to pretty mediocre teams) have them on the skids right now, and they really need to get their defense shored up if they’re going to compete.
LA is red hot coming into this one and I have no issue taking them on a line of a TD or less.
