The Los Angeles Rams and the New Orleans Saints will match up for a high-flying NFL game at Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday.
The Rams enter this game with a sterling 8-0 record. LA has so far beaten the Raiders, Cardinals, Chargers, Vikings, Seahawks, Broncos, 49ers and Packers—though that last game was a bit of a scare.
In the Green Bay win, LA QB Jared Goff put up 295 yards with three scores, and Todd Gurley led the rush with 114 yards from 25 carries. Gurley also led the receivers with six grabs for 81 yards and a TD.
Over on the Saints’ side, they’re sitting at 6-1 this year. New Orleans lost to the Bucs in the opener, but since has dispatched the Browns, Falcons, Giants, Redskins, Ravens and Vikings in succession.
In the Minnesota game, Saints QB Drew Brees put up a TD and a pick, while Mark Ingram led the rush on 63 yards. Michael Thomas was the high man in the receiving game for NO with five grabs for 81 yards.
The Rams are 9-19-1 ATS in their last 29 on turf and 2-5 ATS in their last seven versus the NFC. LA is 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 in Week 9 and 1-4 ATS in their last five overall.
Meanwhile, the Saints are 5-0 ATS in their last five overall and 4-0 ATS in their last four versus the NFC. New Orleans is 4-0 ATS in their last four on turf and 46-20-1 ATS versus a team with a winning record.
The Rams are breathing a collective sigh of relief this week, as they narrowly escaped Green Bay 29-27. Otherwise, it’s been pretty smooth sailing besides a couple of scares versus the Seahawks and Broncos.
As for the Saints, they don’t have a whole lot to complain about these days, but they’ve had some close calls as well (Ravens and Falcons, namely). Playing at home here will help, but this is going to be NO’s biggest test of the season.
The Saints started out as dogs in this game, but the line is moving in the opposite direction. I’m realistically staying away, but if I can get the Rams at +1 or above, I’m going LA.
