Betting Line: Los Angeles -3, Total 52.5

Both teams head into this game with a win in their pocket. The home team is favored by three points. L.A. is home to fans for every team, so that home field advantage may be diminished a little bit.

Drew Brees is coming off a killer game. He led the Saints on a march down the field with less than a minute left to set up the 58-yard game-winning field goal as time expired against Houston. Brees passed for 370 yards and 2 touchdowns in what was the most exciting game of the week.

Alvin Kamara ran the ball just 13 times, but that was enough to tally 97 yards. He caught seven passes for 72 yards as well.

New Orleans had two receivers catch for three digits. Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn Jr. caught for 123 and 101 yards a piece. Ginn caught all seven passes that were thrown his way.

Jared Goff didn't have the prettiest game against the Panthers, but it was enough to get his team the W. Goff passed for 186 yards, a touchdown, and an interception.

The biggest question mark going into this game turned out to be the biggest stud. Todd Gurley II, who was coming off a down year affected by injuries, rushed for 697 yards on 6.9 yards per carry. He was aided by Malcom Brown who rushed for 53 yards and 2 two touchdowns.

These teams faced each other earlier this year in the NFC Conference Championship. The Rams won in 26-23 in overtime.

Jared Goff passed for 297 yards, a touchdown, and an interception. He threw the ball 40 times and completed 25 of his passes. L.A. failed to effectively rush the ball in that game. They totaled 77 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries.

The Saints didn't fair much better. They rushed for just 48 yards on 2.3 yards per carry. Alvin Kamara, who averaged only 1.9 yards, was still a problem for L.A. He caught 11 passes for 96 yards.

The Rams were nearly perfect at home last season. They finished 8-1 SU. They only covered in four of those games, however. The Saints were 7-1 SU on the road, however, they covered the spread in six of those games.

We saw what Drew Brees and Alvin Kamara did in Week 1. They faced a tough Texans team with a stellar blossoming quarterback. This is a big game for both teams. New Orleans +3 is the pick. Drew Brees is clutch. They're coming off a big, dramatic win. They'll continue to roll in Week 2.
