Rams-Raiders: St. Louis In Rare Position As Favorites

New, comments

The Rams are used to coming in as underdogs. That won't be the case on Sunday.

Well this is rare.

The Rams open up the lines for Sunday's home game against the Raiders as favorites by nearly a touchdown.

For just the second time this season, the Rams are favored. That hasn't been the case since week one against Minnesota, so it's a rare set of circumstances that the Rams are expected to come out ahead. That speaks to the difficulty of the schedule the Rams have played in 2014, but also to the quality of the overall performances.

In any case, it points toward a Rams win which should shock nobody going up against a 1-10 Oakland team.
