The LA Rams As Touchdown Favorites
The Rams, in their first game with Matt Stafford leading the offense, open as 7-point favorites against the Chicago Bears. Regardless of who’s playing quarterback, the Rams would likely be the betting favorites in this matchup due to the Bears’ woes.
The Rams allowed just 281.9 yards and 18.5 points per game which were both the best in the NFL.
Chicago will either have Andy Dalton, a 10-year vet with no playoff wins in his third new system in three years, or Justin Fields, a rookie who would be making his first NFL start, as their quarterback in this matchup. Either way, things likely won’t go smoothly at the start of the year.
It’s a new season and anything can happen, but given the way everything looks, the Rams should win this game pretty handily, it’s just a matter of if they will cover the spread.
Can The Bears Keep It Within 7 Points?
When these teams played each other last season the Rams won 24-10 and the Bears’ only touchdown was a scoop-and-score in the fourth quarter. With the changes to both teams, sports betting sites predict a closer game to start the season.
It’s incredibly tough to project how a team will look in Week 1, but it seems like the Rams shouldn’t have much of a problem running away with this one. When it gets closer to the season, NFL bettors should watch the line as it’s likely to change as more information comes out about the state of both teams heading into the 2021-2022 NFL season.
Still, quite a bit away from the start of the season, the game will take place on Sunday, September 12 at 8:15 p.m. EST on ESPN.
