Rams vs. Lions Prediction

I’m on the over here. The Rams’ offense has come alive over the last couple of months of the season and should have a solid day against a Detroit defense that’s regressed over the course of the season. On the other side, The Lions’ offense has been rock solid all year long and Jared Goff is a quarterback that over the course of his career has played his best indoors. I think this is a track meet here and a high-scoring game so give me the over.
