New Orleans Saints vs Los Angeles Rams: Week 2 NFL Odds & Free Picks

Believe it or not, there are only three matchups comprising 1-0 teams. With all due regard to Vikings-Packers and Chiefs-Raiders, no wonder that the marquee match is a rematch of last year’s NFC Championship Game featuring the New Orleans Saints and Los Angeles Rams, this time played in L.A.
This NFC title tilt will never be forgotten with Saints fans/backers since it could have changed the NFL eternally. With the game tied 20-all in the Superdome, the Saints had third-and-10 in the 13 that is Rams with. Drew Brees attempted a pass near the sideline. Without question, Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman committed a pass interference penalty well ahead of the ball came. The officials missed it. Since it should possess, had this been called, the Saints can operate the clock down and have first-and-goal and attempt a chip-shot winning field goal from Wil Lutz, that never misses from that near.
Instead, the Saints needed to kickstart a 31-yard field goal remaining plus it left the lots of time to push the field and tie it on a field goal from Greg Zeuerlein. Zeuerlein won it on a monster 57-yard kick, so kudos after intercepting Brees in overtime.
This pass interference non-call was so pessimistic that PI can be now challenged by coaches , even when it isn’t called. It is a one-year trial for now.
Possible these teams meet to the NFC title again this January with the Saints as +350 favorites to win the summit at the Rams along with Bovada second at +500.
These two teams had wins that are near but. Los Angeles prevailed and has been a short favorite at Carolina. The Panthers never led and were down by 13 points a couple of times. They scored with 1:58 left but never got back the ball.
Since Todd Gurley was not healthy, 1 reason the Rams did not win the Super Bowl was. He seemed fine with the Panthers with 14 carries for 97 yards. But it’s apparent the as Malcolm Brown had 11 carries for 53 yards and two scores Sean McVay would like to restrict his demeanor. Jared Goff was good in completing 23 of 39 for 186 yards with a TD and a pick, but the Rams were operating. Goff, in house, is 2-2 vs. the Saints in their own profession. He has thrown four interceptions and nine touchdown passes using a QBR of 60.
Injury-wise, Rams safety Eric Weddle is in the concussion protocol. He left vs. Carolina carrying a scary blow to the head out of Christian McCaffrey’s knee. Weddle’s mind was a mess. Too early to tell if Weddle can play this one.
The Saints were 30-28 winners since touchdown favorites over Houston in very possibly the funniest match all season might be seen by us Monday night in house. In actuality, it was the very first time in Monday Night Football more than once changed in the final second of the fourth quarter.
New Orleans was 14-3 at the half, but Brees had a enormous second half and the game looked over when Lutz hit a 47-yard field target for a 27-21 lead. It took Houston’s Deshaun Watson every one of two plays to get a 28-27 lead, but the Texans abandoned too much time to Brees. The Saints were even got by him to the Houston 41 and Lutz hit on a career-best. Lutz has been named the NFC’s Special Teams Player of the Week.
Brees completed Michael Thomas had 10 catches for 123, also Alvin Kamara 169 yards. It was Brees’ profession game-winning drive at the fourth quarter/overtime, the second-most by any quarterback since the 1970 merger. It was New Orleans’ initial Week 1 win because 2013.
In Week 9 of last season, Brees threw for 391 yards and four scores at a home win over the Rams. He’s 2-2 vs. Goff in his profession with 11 TDs and one pick great for a QBR of 76. Kamara had three touchdowns that Thomas 12 and Week 9 match catches for 211 yards and a score.
Injury shrewd, Saints defensive linemen Sheldon Rankins and Mario Edwards Jr. both missed Week 1 and David Onyemata has been also suspended. Onyemata will play with the Rams. The other two are not likely.
The Rams have two advantages plus a week to the Saints off an emotional triumph. That’s the reason why we will go with L.A., but be certain that you find the spread at -2.5 and not -3.
