Fancy a little betting on this week's game? Hey, it's you're money, do what you want with it. The St. Louis Rams are underdogs this week against the Arizona Cardinals, but just barely. The opening line has even closed somewhat to make it virtually even a day before the NFC West showdown.
The Cardinals are 1 1/2-point favorites over the Rams in Arizona. They opened the week as 3 1/2-point favorites. The likelihood that Kevin Kolb is out with turf toe probably factors into the line as well as it being a homegame for the Cardinals. The over/under is 41 points, after opening at 43 points.
St. Louis covered the spread for the first time this season with their week 8 upset of the Saints. More than half of bettors are taking the Rams to cover the spread this week. Perhaps more telling, 65 percent of bettors are taking the over on this game.
