A clear difference can be seen with the Rams since their return to Los Angeles. With quarterback Jared Goff and head coach Sean McVay the Rams have emerged as one of the top teams in the NFL. Simultaneously they are also one of the most entertaining teams in the league. Contrarily despite all of their success they have been a poor Pro Football betting value. Consistent with the red ink is an inconsistent defense and a lot of public attention. Balanced against are the Chicago Bears. The Monsters of the Midway have emerged as one of pro football’s surprise teams!

Los Angeles Rams
A clear difference exists between the Rams straight up success and their lack of profits. Los Angeles has a Pro Football betting record of 11-1 straight up but just 5-6-1 against the spread. Also, LA has a 6-6 split on totals. Following a hot start on the board the Rams have failed to pay in seven of their last eight games. Correlate all of the public attention that their straight up record has generated. That has served to bring far too much casual money towards LA. What’s more it caused a major drop in betting value.
Important Rams Stats
Los Angeles is the second highest scoring team in the NFL but ranks 19th for points allowed. So too are the Rams one of the better-balanced teams in the league. LA ranks fourth for passing yardage as well as for rushing yardage. Last game for the Rams was a 30-16 payout at the Detroit Lions.
Chicago has a sportsbook online record of 8-4 straight up and vs. the line with an 8-4 mark over the total. Last time out the Bears lost in overtime at the New York Giants 30-27. The Bears have still paid in five of their last six. And four of their last five games have gone over the total. Overall Chicago ranks fifth in the NFL for scoring offense and fourth for points allowed.
Stats to Consider
Los Angeles has been in the red as a road chalk recently. To illuminate the Rams have paid in just three of their last seven laying points on the road. Four of their last six in that situation have gone over the total. Conversely the Bears have lost just two of their last 12 vs. the board as home dogs.
Team vs Team

Three of the last four in this series at Chicago went over the total.
