NFL Predictions: Los Angeles Rams

The Rams have been having a tough time being successful over the last decade or so, but their latest adjustments don’t look very favorable for the team overall. Just looking at the off-season preparation made by the franchise it isn’t too likely that the Rams are going to be able to offer a winning season to the City of Angels once again.

Betting it all on a Star Quarterback

The Rams went all in on their quarterback acquisition and managed to snag the number one draft pick overall. While their excellent selection for the quarterback should help the team, it would be surprising if that was enough to really help them compensate for all the changes made in the off-season, and a franchise that hasn’t had much success since 2003.

The Rams gave up a couple of key members of their defense during the off-season, and only really improved their quarterback in the process. While overall the team might be a bit better, those changes aren’t enough to help them go up against some of the better teams in the NFL.

Likely to Win both Starting Games

The Rams are set to go up against the 49ers first, and then the Seahawks the following week. Though the Rams lost to the 49ers in the 2015 season, it’s my NFL betting prediction that the team is going to have enough of an improved setup to beat the 49ers in this opener. They’re determined and really want that victory. If you plan on doing any football betting on the second game, you should also consider putting money down on the Rams against the Seattle Seahawks. The Rams had no trouble dealing with the Seahawks last season and with a slightly improved team this year, there’s no reason to believe that won’t be the case yet again.

Though the Rams are going to come out strong, it’s unlikely that they will be able to best more difficult teams like the Buccaneers, the Cardinals, the Giants or the Jets. These are the teams that are going to make it hard for the Rams to have a positive season, and they’ll likely need more future improvements to start getting more wins than losses once again.
