Comparable to most Super Bowl champions the Eagles may well go down in history as an accident. For one thing they won the title game over New England with a backup quarterback. Secondly, they were large NFL betting Long shots to even make it to Super Sunday. Along the same lines their regression this year shows that they are not a bona fide power team. On the other hand, the Rams have a very Super look. Especially on offense. However, their defense remains a question mark.

Eagles vs. Rams TV Coverage: NBC
Although the Rams are running away with the NFC West the fact remains that they have been a terrible NFL betting value. In fact, Los Angeles has paid in just two of their last 10 games. Last week the Rams were mauled at Chicago 15-6 as 3-point road overlays. LA now stands at 11-2 straight up, 5-7-1 vs. the spread, and 6-7 under the total. On the whole the NFL’s third ranked offense is the strength of the Rams. Of great concern is an LA defense that continues to drop and now ranks 19th in the league.
A clear difference between a Super Bowl run and a losing record is the story of Philadelphia’s season. To show the Eagles have lost three of their last five games. Philly now has an offshore betting record of 6-7 straight up, 4-9 against the spread, and 5-8 under the total. Supplementing that poor record are the metrics of a loser. The Eagles have NFL ranks of 21st for scoring offense and 25th for defense.
Stats to Consider
Betting value has been weak for the Eagles in the role of away dog. To show Philadelphia has covered just three of their last eight games getting points away from home. Just two of their last 12 matchups in that role stayed under the total. Counter to that is the Rams lack of reliability as a home favorite. Consider that Los Angeles has covered just two of their last seven laying points at Memorial Coliseum. Four of their last five as home chalks have gone over the total.
Team vs. Team
Head to head the Eagles own the Rams. As a matter of fact, Los Angles has paid in just one of the last 15 meetings in this head to head series. The last three between these teams have failed to stay under the number. And on the road against the Rams the Eagles have paid in five of the last six games. Just one of the last four in this series at the Rams went over the total.
Matchup to Watch
Certainly, the Rams have the NFL betting matchup advantage with Jared Goff and Todd Gurley II. Goff has a 101.2 passer rating with 27 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Gurley has 12013 yards rushing with 4.9 yards per carry with 15 touchdowns. In turn the Eagles defense has flopped in 2018.
