Rams vs. Cardinals: Odds, Picks, Predictions and how to watch

New, comments

The St. Louis Rams need a win in the worst way. Can they pull it off in Arizona this week?

Christian Petersen

Somebody's getting a win in this one. Maybe. I never thought I'd see the St. Louis Rams tie, but I doubt that lightening strikes twice in the same season. Both the Rams and the Arizona Cardinals could certainly stand to get on the right side of the win column.

Arizona has lost six straight. St. Louis hasn't won in five games.

The Odds

Arizona is favored, by 1-2 points, which is a normal spread for a home team and is basically even. The over/under on the game is a whopping 37 points. Neither team scores much, and the Cardinals are starting Ryan Lindley at quarterback today.

The Cardinals are 4-5-1 against the spread this year. The Rams are 6-4, not having covered much in the team's five-game skid.

The Picks

Experts lean to the Rams in this one. The panel at CBS went unanimous for the Rams. ESPN was divided, but mostly going with Jeff FIsher. SBN picked the Rams too.

I, of course, am picking the Rams to win a defensive struggle.

St. Louis wins 17-12.

Watch It

The game is going be on Fox at 3:25 p.m. Central time.
