Per our partners at OddsShark, the Rams opened up as 7-point favorites according to most oddsmakers. That’s the second-highest line this weekend just below the New Orleans Saints giving the Philadelphia Eagles eight points on the spread. Meanwhile, the Kansas City Chiefs are five-point favorites over the Indianapolis Colts with the New England Patriots enjoying the smallest margin on a four-point spread.
Perhaps more interesting is that the over/under is currently set at 49. The Rams had four over/unders to start the season under 50. After that? The only one was Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals. Unlike that game where the O/U was more of an indication of the Cardinals’ weak offensive output, this one is more an indication of the strength of the Dallas Cowboys’ defense.
In any case, it’s a fair indication of the expectations going into this game with the Rams being heavy home favorites.
