Bills Rams Pick, LA Buffalo Prediction – National Football Post

Why the Bills can cover the spread

Boasting one of the best rosters in the NFL with Allen under center, the offense includes pass-catchers  All-Pro Stefon Diggs, Dawson Knox, Gabe Davis. They will run a committee backfield which is also loaded with talent.

Head-to-head, the Bills have dominated the Rams with a 7-2 ATS edge in their last nine games and they are 9-1-against the number in their last 11 non-conference games. They have been a terrific Week 1 bet, covering five in a row and 12-5overall. Combine the Bills’ Week 1 success with the fact that the Rams are a mere 3-9 ATS in their last 12 bouts with AFC East teams, and you have a recipe for any early winning bet here.

Why the Rams can cover the spread

It would be a shame – and possibly a money losing idea – to sleep on the defending champions. Super Bowl winners are now 18-4 straight up in Week 1 the following season, so the Rams are far from being counted out in this matchup.

Considering a money line wager on the Rams as the underdogs at home is far from a stretch. The Rams, believe it or not, have actually improved their roster this offseason by adding key players like wide receiver Allen Robinson and linebacker Bobby Wagner; only enhancing their odds at repeating as Super Bowl Champions (+1100).

The Rams have seen their fair share of success throughout the month of September (13-2 in their last 15 games). The Rams have both won and covered in five consecutive season openers and their last two times as home underdogs- they won outright both times.

Bills Rams Pick

The Rams are sturdy in every area, and avoiding the Super Bowl hangover seems more likely with the Rams than it has for any team in recent memory. Los Angeles enjoysa perfect balance of offensive and defensive talent (eighth and ninth overall in the league respectively) and we pick them to cover the spread here.
