Let’s take a closer look at these two teams as we dive into the Rams vs Saints Odds and Predictions

Los Angeles Rams

The Los Angeles Rams made the playoffs as the 2 seed in the NFC after winning the NFC West after finishing the regular season with a record of 13-3, but lost the tiebreaker to the Saints after losing to New Orleans in week 9 on the road by a score of 35-45. They advanced to the NFC Championship game after eliminating the Dallas Cowboys at home in the divisional round by a score of 30-22. Los Angeles is 8-8-1 ATS overall, 6-6-1 ATS after a win, 4-4 ATS on the road and this will be the first time this season the Rams will be an underdog. Jared Goff leads the team in passing with 4,688 yards for 32 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

 

Todd Gurley leads the team in rushing with 1,251 yards and 17 touchdowns. Robert Woods leads the team in receiving with 86 receptions for 1,219 yards and 6 touchdowns. Los Angeles is averaging 32.76 points per game which ranks 2nd in the NFL. They are averaging 147.29 rushing yards per game which ranks 3rd in the NFL. They are averaging 275.94 passing yards per game which ranks 5th in the NFL. The Rams are allowing 23.88 points per game which ranks 19th in the NFL. They are allowing 118.06 rushing yards per game which ranks 20th in the NFL. They are allowing 237.53 passing yards per game which ranks 16th in the NFL.

New Orleans Saints

The New Orleans Saints made the playoffs as the 1 seed in the NFC after winning the NFC South with a regular season record of 13-3 and beating the Rams in week 9 at home by a score of 45-35. They advanced to the NFC Championship game by eliminating the Philadelphia Eagles at home by a score of 20-14. New Orleans is 10-7 ATS overall, 9-4 ATS after a win, 4-5 ATS at home and 7-7 ATS as a favorite. Drew Brees leads the team in passing with 3,992 yards for 32 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. Alvin Kamara leads the team in rushing with 883 yards and 14 touchdowns. Michael Thomas leads the team in receiving with 125 receptions for 1,405 yards and 9 touchdowns.

New Orleans is averaging 30.82 points per game which ranks 3rd in the NFL. They are averaging 127.18 rushing yards per game which ranks 6th in the NFL. They are averaging 254.41 passing yards per game which ranks 10th in the NFL. The Saints are allowing 21.59 points per game which ranks 12th in the NFL. They are allowing 78.41 rushing yards per game which ranks 2nd in the NFL. They are allowing 264.82 passing yards per game which ranks 29th in the NFL.

Prediction

Both of these teams are two of the top offenses in the NFL with the Saints ranking 3rd in scoring and the Rams ranking 2nd in scoring. The Saints have the better overall offense ranking 12th in scoring and 2nd in rushing. Jared Goff has struggled in recent weeks and with the weakness of the Saints being the pass defense he could turn this game around.
