Many times in the preseason the home teams are favored in football betting odds but the Rams are one of the weaker teams in the NFL.
NFL betting on St. Louis won’t be that popular, especially since running back Stephen Jackson has been a holdout. The Rams do have a solid quarterback rotation that can impact football betting results. They go with Marc Bulger followed by Trent Green, Brock Berlin and Bruce Gradkowski according to NFL betting information. The Rams have not been a good NFL betting wager under head coach Scott Linehan. He is only 2-6 against the NFL betting pointspread the past three preseasons. The Chargers quarterback rotation is also solid according to NFL betting experts with Phillip Rivers, Billy Volek, Charlie Whitehurst and Casey Bramlet.
NFL betting stats show that the Rams and Chargers have played quite a bit in the preseason. NFL betting numbers tell us that the two teams have met 35 times in the preseason with the Chargers holding an 18-17 advantage. NFL betting history had the two teams meeting last year at the Edward Jones Dome with the Chargers routing the Rams 30-13. It was the first win for the Chargers under head coach Norv Turner according to NFL betting stats.
NFL betting history shows that the Bolts have won the last four preseason meetings, including a 31-10 win in 2002 at the Dome. Football betting stats show that the Chargers and Rams have met just nine times in the regular season. St. Louis leads the series, 5-4, but the Chargers won the last meeting, by a score of 38-24 at home in football betting.
Week 2 NFL odds usually favor the home teams in NFL betting but that may not be the case in this matchup since the Chargers are thought of as a top team in the AFC while the Rams are one of the weakest teams in the NFC.
