Needless to say, the St. Louis Rams are not favored by the chubby men in short sleeve button up shirts who make odds in a windowless, air conditioned room in Las Vegas. Winless in their last six, the Rams host the New Orleans Saints this week. After a 62-7 win over the Colts last week, many are wondering if the Saints can do the same to the Rams this week.
The opening line on the game favored the Saints by 13 points. Since then, the spread has moved up to 14 points. That's the exact same point spread for the Rams game against the Cowboys last week, and the team is now 0-6 against the spread.
The over/under for this game is 48 points. In 16 of the Rams last 21 games at home against the Saints, the point totals have favored the over bettor. Last year when these two teams played in New Orleans, the Rams did not cover a 9 1/2 point spread in a game they lose 31-13.
