The Los Angeles Rams look for their second road win to improve to 4-1 on the NFL season. The Los Angeles Rams have lost five of their last eight road games. Jared Goff is completing 72.1 percent of his passes for 1,063 yards, six touchdowns and two interceptions. Goff has zero touchdown passes in four of his last 12 games. Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods have combined for 525 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Tyler Higbee has 13 receptions.

Defensively, Los Angeles is allowing 20 points and 353.3 yards per game. Micah Kiser leads the Los Angeles Rams with 32 tackles, Aaron Donald has 3.5 sacks and Darious Williams has two interceptions.
The Washington Football Team need a feel good victory here to snap a three-game losing streak. The Washington Football Team have lost eight of their last 10 home games. Dwayne Haskins Jr. is completing 61 percent of his passes for 939 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions. Haskins has two touchdown passes in three of his last seven games. Terry McLaurin and Dontrelle Inman have combined for 492 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Steven Sims Jr. has six receptions. The Washington Football Team ground game is averaging 92.3 yards per contest, and Antonio Gibson leads the way with 186 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, Washington is allowing 28 points and 338.3 yards per game.

The Rams are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 road games, 12-5-1 ATS in their last 18 games as a favorite and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Football Team are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games in October, 2-8 ATS in their last 10 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The over is 5-2 in Rams last 7 games overall. The over is 6-1 in Football Team last 7 games overall. The underdog is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 meetings. The under is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings in Washington.
The Los Angeles Rams have found their offense this season and look like an improved team, but three of their four games have come down to the wire and they had chances to blow it against a banged up Giants team last week. The Rams are also just 6-7-1 against the spread in their last 14 games as a favorite of at least seven points. The Washington Football Team put up a fight last week against the Ravens despite allowing Lamar Jackson to run wild and it's not like they're getting dragged in these games despite the losses and lack of talent across the board. This game feels like it has a backdoor cover written all over it.
I'll take the points with Washington at home.
