The Rams are nine-point favorites and the over-under for total points scored is 56.5 in the latest Packers vs. Rams odds. Before you make any Packers vs. Rams picks, listen to what SportsLine expert R.J. White has to say. This was a fourth-and-six situation which Rodgers converted using his legs. Rodgers hopes to be without a knee brace against the Rams.
The Rams are the NFL’s top rushing team — mainly because reigning NFL offensive player of the year Todd Gurley is off to an even better start than last season. Gurley is averaging a league-best 98 yards per game and has scored a league-leading 14 touchdowns.
The Rams once again will be without receiver Cooper Kupp, who remains sidelined because of a knee injury. Second-year pro Josh Reynolds will start again alongside Robert Woods and Brandin Cooks. The Packers’ 3-4 scheme features linebackers Clay Matthews and Nick Perry, who will play in the Coliseum for the first time since they starred for USC.
White was SportsLine’s most profitable NFL analyst last season and returned $100 bettors a profit of nearly $2,000. The renowned prognosticator has cashed big in two of the last three prestigious Las Vegas SuperContests and now turns his eye toward Sunday’s game. Aaron Rodgers could have a peg leg and he’d still be one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.
Three weeks ago, White advised SportsLine members that the Rams were in for a fight from the rebuilding Seahawks, so he recommended backing Seattle as a 7.5-point home underdog. The result: the Rams pulled out a tight 33-31 victory, and anyone who followed White’s advice booked another easy winner.
But the Packers are well aware that they are just a couple plays away from being practically eliminated from the NFL playoff race. They had to overcome a 20-point deficit in Week 1 to edge the Bears and, in their last game, were outplayed most of the way by the short-handed 49ers. Aaron Rodgers led the Packers to 10 points in the final 1:05 for a 33-30 victory.
