Madden20 Sim: Sunday, June 7, 2020 at 2:00 pm
The Line: Oakland Raiders +4 -- Over/Under: 46
The Los Angeles Rams and Oakland Raiders meet Sunday afternoon in a Madden20 NFL simulation game.
The Los Angeles Rams may not have accomplished much last season, but they have eight players who are ranked at least 85 overall in Madden20. Defensive tackle Aaron Donald is one of the best players in the game with a 99 overall rating and a 99 strength rating. Cornerback Jalen Ramsey is a 94 overall and 93 acceleration rating, while left tackle Andrew Whitworth is 88 overall and has a 90 awareness rating. Running back Todd Gurley has a 86 overall rating and a 91 speed rating and quarterback Jared Goff is rated 77 overall with an 86 acceleration rating. The Los Angeles Rams has one of the better wide receiver trios in this game and have a defense filled with game changers. You can win a lot in this game playing with the Los Angeles Rams.
The Oakland Raiders aren’t all that fun to play with in this game, as their highest rated player is their center in Rodney Hudson, who is a 93 overall rating with a 90 strength rating. Richie Incognito and Trent Brown are the Raiders next highest rated players, which makes for a strong offensive line but really thin on the difference makers. Running back Josh Jacobs is rated 85 overall with a 91 acceleration rating while tight end Darren Waller is rated 85 overall with an 89 speed rating. Quarterback Derek Carr is rated 80 overall with an 87 acceleration rating and Tyrell Williams is his top ranked receiver with an 82 overall rating and 95 agility rating. The Oakland Raiders have one of the better offensive lines in the game, but the defense can get gashed and the offense can struggle to produce the big play that really opens the game up.
The Los Angeles Rams are a tough team to figure out in these simulations because their odds have been all over the place and they've been bigger favorites against better teams at times. Either way, the Oakland Raiders are one of those teams I don't get behind much in these simulations, as they're not all that good defensively and the offensive weapons lack outside of running back and a good offensive line.
The Los Angeles Rams should be able to control the trenches in this game and win by at least a touchdown.
