It’s obviously an inauspicious estimation of the Rams’ chances in 2017, one that’s a bit more grim than our staff predictions back from after the schedule release late last month. Of the nine respondents, eight of us are taking the over per our predictions. We’re such homers. BMule is your courageous lone wolf in this exercise.

If you’re grasping for optimism, you don’t need to reach far. A year ago, the oddsmakers set the Rams’ O/U at 7.5 wins. They were (quite) wrong. The could be so again this year, albeit in the opposite direction.

Nonetheless, it’s worth considering. From the odds to power rankings to picking early in 2018 mock drafts, it’s clear the Rams are facing a long shot to make 2017 a successful season in the win column.
