There have been very few games this season in which the Rams weren’t favored over their opponent. This week is no different.
The Rams are visiting the Ravens on Sunday afternoon and enter as 5.5-point favorites over Baltimore. Lamar Jackson is questionable to play after not practicing Thursday and Friday, so it’s likely to be Tyler Huntley at quarterback.
That doesn’t give the experts much confidence in the Ravens. According to NFL Pick Watch, 88% of experts are taking the Rams to beat Baltimore straight-up. With so many lopsided matchups this week, there are nine games where more than 88% of experts are taking one team to win.
Experts are confident in the Rams covering the spread against the Ravens, too, with 78% picking Los Angeles to cover this weekend. Only one game (Eagles vs. Washington) has a larger number of experts picking one team to cover the spread.
With Jackson likely sidelined and the Ravens missing several other key starters due to injury, the Rams are clearly set up to win this one despite being on the road. With a win and Cardinals loss, the Rams will clinch the NFC West, so there are plenty of playoff implications on Sunday.
