Mired in an 0-6 losing streak, it's hard to find anyone who favors the St. Louis Rams from week to week. This week, the New Orleans Saints come to town, fresh off a 62-7 win over the Indianapolis Colts, the only team in the NFL that might be as hapless as the Rams. Needless to say, odds makers don't think much of the Rams this week.
And where exactly do the older, casually dressed gentlemen in Las Vegas who make the odds have the Rams versus the Saints game? The opening line has the Saints favored by 15 1/2 points this week. As you can see, that's the most lopsided point spread among the opening lines for this week's games.
In case you were wondering, the Rams are 0-6 against the spread this year. Covering the spread this week, with Sam Bradford still questionable, seems like a pretty tall order for the Rams.
