NFL betting lines opened with the Rams as -4 favorites, the point total set at 50½.

The Cardinals are hitting the road because they stunk the joint out to close the season. Four losses in their final five games saw a potential Number 1 seed go by the wayside in a hurry. After dropping the home finale to the going-nowhere Seahawks (conceding 38 points along the way) Arizona desperately needs a bounce-back game from the defense. They sit 11th in the NFL in total yards allowed (329.2 yards/game) scoring defense (21.5 points/game, tied with Seattle).

Offensively, the Cardinals require a big game out of Kyler Murray (3,787 yards, 29 total touchdowns), The offense of Kliff Kingsbury’s averaging over 370 yards and 26.4 points per game. but they were stymied any number of times during the team’s tailspin, running back James Conner finished the year tied for second in the league with 15 rushing touchdowns.

The Rams rallied, winning the NFC West aided by that Cardinal collapse, earning their four post-season appearance in five seasons under head coach Sean McVay. Despite losing a home finale to San Francisco in overtime, the offense has averaged 372.1 yards and 27.1 points per game.

Quarterback Matthew Stafford’s 41 touchdowns and Cooper Kupp highlight-reel season (first receiver since Carolina’s Steve Smith in 2005 to lead the league in receptions [145], receiving yards [1,947], and receiving touchdowns [16]) lead the offense.

LA didn’t have a stellar defensive season, allowing 344.9 yards and 21.9 points per game. Despite this, they have plenty of firepower, led by veterans like Aaron Donald, Von Miller and Jalen Ramsey. The unit forced 25 takeaways, picking off 19 passes during the season.
