The Los Angeles Rams started the first half a bit slow against returning head coach Jon Gruden and the Oakland Raiders. When Aaron Donald, Todd Gurley, Jared Goff and Marcus Peters warmed up in the second half, they showed why the Rams are considered top Super Bowl favorites, scoring 23 unanswered points to destroy the Raiders.
In the middle of a rebuild, the Arizona Cardinals fell to Washington in week one, thoroughly dominated on both sides of the pigskin en route to an 18-point loss. Star running back David Johnson returned from a lengthy rehab with a rushing TD, the lone bright spot in what promises to be a long, painful year for the franchise.
All indications suggest that this clash will be the most lopsided contest in the NFL during week two. Los Angeles features the most dangerous pass rush in the league, a superb secondary, the offensive player of the year from 2017, along with new additions like Talib and Cooks. Arizona simply doesn’t matchup against the overwhelming firepower of the Rams.
Los Angeles will be heavily favored prior to snap, with a -740 moneyline for a straight up victory. That means you’ll need to wager a whopping $740 to win $100. A large, -12 point spread will be a reasonable risk considering the superior payout, along with the fact that this match could be over by halftime.
