The Los Angeles Rams and Arizona Cardinals do battle Sunday in week 10 NFL action from SoFi Stadium.

The Arizona Cardinals will look to bounce back from back-to-back losses after a 31-21 loss to Seattle to drop to 3-6 on the year. Kyler Murray has thrown for 2,168 yards, 12 touchdowns and 6 interceptions on 66,7% passing while also leading the Cards with 359 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns. Eno Benjamin and James Conner have combined for 544 rushing yards. Marquise Brown leads Arizona’s receivers with 485 receiving yards coming on 43 receptions with a pair of touchdowns while Zach Ertz and Rondale Moore each have 300+ receiving yards. On defense, Budda Baker has a team-high 71 total tackles and J.J. Watt has 4.5 sacks this season.

The Los Angeles Rams will try to rebound from back-to-back losses, sitting at 3-5 on the year after a 16-13 loss to Tampa Bay last time out. Matthew Stafford has thrown for 1,928 yards, 8 touchdowns and 8 interceptions on 68.4% passing, while Darrell Henderson Jr. leads the Rams in rushing with 253 rushing yards as well. Cooper Kupp has a team-high 72 catches for 813 yards and 6 touchdowns while Tyler Higbee has 36 receptions for 312 yards and Allen Robinson and Ben Skowronek each have 200+ receiving yards as well this season. On defense, Bobby Wagner has a team-high 64 total tackles and Aaron Donald has a team-high 5 sacks.

Arizona is 10-4 ATS in their last 14 road games and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 division games while the under is 14-2 in their last 16 games on turf. Los Angeles is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 games overall while the under is 6-1 in their last 7 games following a loss.

I get the reasoning for backing either side here, but I’m going to side with the under. Los Angeles’ offense has stalled a bit in recent games and I kind of want to take a see it before I believe it approach before assuming they’ll just bounce back. On the other side, DeAndre Hopkins coming back has given Arizona a definite boost, but Kyler Murray continues to make questionable decisions this season and I just don’t feel confident that he’ll be able to fix that against this Rams pass rush. I like the under in a physical, low-scoring game.
