The Los Angeles Rams are coming off their worst loss of the year, getting pounded 45-6 by the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football. Now they’ll have to pick up the pieces and as they visit the Arizona Cardinals this week

The Arizona Cardinals, who are 3-7-1, are coming off a bye week in Week 12 and are looking to get things going after a much-needed recovery week. They’ve been competitive in most of their recent games but the wins have not been coming.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

The Rams are sitting at 6-5 this season but have lost two of their last three games and had their worst home loss in franchise history on Monday night. The Rams are 5-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last six against Arizona and 6-1 ATS in their last seven games on the road, so this might be a spot to trust them.

The Cardinals are 3-7-1 this season and are currently riding a four-game losing streak. The Cardinals are 1-4 straight up in their last five games and 1-5 straight up against opponents in the NFC Conference. The total has gone over for the Cardinals in four of their last five games at home and five of their last seven games overall.

Los Angeles Rams

The Los Angeles Rams have found themselves in a tough spot after 12 weeks. They’re a shadow of their former selves that won the NFC and played in the Super Bowl. Jared Goff has been a disaster as he completed the entire month of November without throwing a single touchdown pass for the Rams. Goff currently has a passer rating of 80.3 and has thrown more interceptions (12) so far this year than he has touchdowns (11). In the month of November, Goff went 59-96 (61.4 percent) with 628 yards with no touchdowns, five interceptions, four fumbles and a paltry 58.9 passer rating. If the Rams are going to get it going on offense, they will need Goff to step up big time moving forward.

Todd Gurley is another once-explosive player in this offence that looks shot. He’s been roughly a 2000-yard contributor to this offense over the last two seasons but he looks like he has nothing left. He’s not even on pace to crack 1000 total yards this season.

This is last call for the Rams. With projections showing their chances of making the playoffs at just 19 percent, they absolutely need a win on the road in Arizona.

Arizona Cardinals

The Arizona Cardinals haven’t had the best year so far but they have been competitive in a lot of games. Led by a young rookie quarterback Kyler Murray and a new head coach in Kliff Kingsbury, there was bound to be some growing pains. All things considered, Murray has looked solid this year, posting a 91.2 passer rating with 14 touchdowns and only five interceptions. Those numbers aren’t far off of Tom Brady’s – if you can believe that.

The challenge for the Cards is their defence has struggled to get stops. They’ve allowed a whopping 31.3 points per game during their four-game losing streak. The Rams offense has been dormant over the last month but the Cardinals want to keep them that way. They’re hoping their defence isn’t the antidote to their ailments.

Chandler Jones has been a real bright spot for the Cards defence. Entering Week 13, Jones is making a strong case for Defensive Player of the Year. He is currently tied for the NFL lead with 12.5 sacks and leads the NFL with five forced fumbles and 41 pressures. If he can harass Goff – as many other teams have been able to do – the Cards will have a shot here.
