NFL bet numbers have the Green Bay Packers favored this week against the St. Louis Rams but as last week proved, the Packers are no guarantee laying points and the Rams can be competitive.
The Packers lost in NFL betting last week laying big points at home to Cincinnati while the Rams covered against the Redskins.
NFL bet pointspread numbers have the Packers as 6.5 point favorites with a total of 41. On paper it would seem that Green Bay would roll over the Rams but that is what people thought last week as they made an NFL bet on the Packers against the Bengals and lost. The Rams are a competitive team under new head coach Steve Spagnuolo and they might surprise the Packers on Sunday in NFL bet action. Even though the Rams are 0-2 they are not discouraged. “There are no moral victories,” Spagnuolo said. “I mentioned that yesterday. We should be upset that we lost. We are disappointed but not discouraged. These are all things I said to them. Be careful not to think just because it was 28-0 a week ago and this week was a two-point deficit that it’s automatic that we will (take off). It doesn’t happen that way. Every week is a new week.”
The Rams played very well defensively last week. The nine points the defense allowed was the fewest by a Rams team since 2007 as NFL bet history shows. “We did a better job,” cornerback Ron Bartell said. “I thought we tackled better and we made more plays, ran to the ball better.” The NFL bet question for the Rams will be on offense where St. Louis struggled even though Steven Jackson had 104 yards.
Green Bay has been a very good team on the road for gamblers making an NFL bet. The Packers are 14-5-1 in NFL betting in their last 20 road games. St. Louis on the other hand has struggled in NFL bet results at home. The Rams are 6-15 in NFL betting in their last 21 home games. St. Louis is also poor in September as they are 6-20-1 ATS in their last 27 games in September.
Points could be plentiful in this NFL bet matchup if Green Bay has their say in the game. 17 of the last 22 games when Green Bay was favored on the road went over the NFL bet total. The Rams though are an under team in NFL bet odds. The Under is 4-0-1 in the Rams last 5 home NFL betting games.
