The Line: Los Angeles Rams -3 -- O/U: 55.5
The Los Angeles Rams and the Denver Broncos meet in a Madden 20 NFL sim matchup on Tuesday night.
The Los Angeles Rams come into this one looking to rebound from a 42-10 loss to the New England Patriots in their last sim appearance. Cooper Kupp leads the Rams’ offense and receiving group with an 87 overall rating with 94 agility and 95 catching while Robert Woods is not far off of the pace at the top with an 86 overall rating including 94 catching and Brandin Cooks follows at 85 overall with 95 speed, 92 acceleration and 95 agility. Todd Gurley II leads the Rams’ ground attack at 86 overall with 91 speed and 91 acceleration as well as 95 agility and 89 carrying. On defense, Aaron Donald is one of the s five highly-regarded 99 overall rated players with 90 acceleration, 99 power move, 96 finesse move, 97 block shedding, 93 impact blocking and 92 tackling. Jalen Ramsey leads the Rams’ secondary at 94 overall with 95 man coverage and 95 zone coverage with 92 speed, 93 acceleration and 90 agility.
The Denver Broncos will try to build off of a 31-16 win over Baltimore in their last sim matchup. Phillip Lindsay leads the Broncos offensively with an 85 overall rating at running back with 93 carrying as well as 93 speed and 91 acceleration. Courtland Sutton is right behind as the Broncos’ top wide receiver with 89 speed, 92 acceleration and 92 catching as part of his 84 overall rating. On defense, Von Miller leads the Broncos with a team-high 96 overall rating, including 93 tackling, 89 impact blocking, 90 finesse move and 93 power move. Chris Harris Jr. is at DB at 90 overall with a 91 man coverage rating and 90 speed. Justin Simmons and Kareem Jackson make up a strong combination in the Denver secondary at 89 and 87 overall.
I get the Rams being favored, but the problem is that while the Rams have picked it up lately, they’re still a hard team to trust on the whole as we’ve seen them drop winnable games despite having some solid players on their roster. Denver continues to provide value more often than not in an underdog role and I expect this game to be no different. I’ll take a shot with Denver and the points as well as putting a bit on Denver ML.
