NFL Betting – St. Louis Rams at Washington Redskins

NFL betting on the St. Louis Rams has not been very popular recently but that might change now that the Rams have a new head coach.

NFL Week 6 odds have the Redskins as heavy favorites but football betting gamblers are looking at the Rams as a team that could improve due to the coaching change.

NFL betting history shows that Washington has been very successful in recent seasons in this series. The Redskins have won and covered 7 of the last 10 meetings against the Rams according to football betting numbers. The teams have actually met four times this decade with the Redskins winning three of the four according to NFL betting stats. They have only met once recently though in Washington and the Redskins won 20-17 in 2000 according to NFL betting stats. The Redskins are just above .500 as a home favorite the past three years according to NFL betting stats. The Rams though, are very poor road underdogs, hitting less than 40% of the time according to football betting stats.

NFL betting experts believe that the Rams have the talent with quarterback Marc Bulger and running back Steven Jackson to put points on the board but whether they can stay with Washington’s offense led by Jason Campbell and Clinton Portis is another story. The defensive edge could decide this game. The Redskins have a big advantage over the Rams on defense, especially at home. The Rams will have to protect quarterback Marc Bulger and put points on the board if they expect to stay in this game because the defensive edge definitely goes to Washington.

Gamblers looking at the total will see that six of the last ten games between the two teams have gone under the total according to football betting stats. The Rams have been an under team in recent seasons on the road, going under more than 60% of the time according to NFL betting stats. The Redskins have been a slight under team at home in recent seasons going under just about 52% of the time according to NFL betting stats.
