The football odds have seen St. Louis as an underdog in every game this season and that is likely to continue the rest of the year.
NFL betting lines have the Rams with a bye this week and things are actually positive in St. Louis since they are coming off their first win of the season against Detroit. Quarterback Marc Bulger has not done much this season to impact NFL betting lines. He has just three touchdown passes and has a passer rating of 68.2 as football odds stats show. That doesn’t mean he is going to be benched by head coach Steve Spagnuolo though. "I think Marc has done everything we needed him to do," Spagnuolo said. "I've said this before; it's not one position on the side of the ball, it's everybody. He has been a leader, he manages the game, gets the ball to 39 (Steven Jackson), and there are pieces that he is working through, too."
NFL betting lines will have St. Louis as a big underdog next week against the New Orleans Saints. It was a good thing that St. Louis won last week in football odds since it is unlikely they will beat the Saints. Bulger at one time was a Pro Bowl quarterback but things have not gone well in NFL betting lines recently. The Rams are 6-34 since 2007 and most of the time Bulger has been on his back. This year hasn’t been much better in NFL betting lines but at least the Rams have Steven Jackson who is tied for the NFC lead in rushing. Bulger has only been sacked nine times this NFL betting lines season but the offense has still only scored 77 points as NFL betting lines stats show. That number is the worst in the NFL. "I think we've improved in certain areas every week," Bulger said. "There's been times we had relapses. Hopefully, we can come back after the bye week and be more consistent, win some more ballgames and come back fresh."
NFL betting lines have the Rams at 1-7 straight up and 3-5 against the football odds. The Rams have actually been better against the NFL betting lines on the road where they are 3-2. St. Louis is 0-3 at home versus the NFL betting lines this season.
