Rams 28, Cowboys 24
The Cowboys have lost three in a row, and under head coach Sean McVay, the Rams are 5-0 against teams entering on a three-game losing streak - winning said games by an average of 20 points. This is a tough matchup and one not favoring the Cowboys (+100).
Bet the RAMS (-121) to win outright and continue their strong play on both sides of the ball.
Against the Spread (?)
The Cowboys originally opened as the favorites, but after the Rams' win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 14, the line has flipped. Now, the Rams are 1.5-point road favorites over Dallas, and rightfully so.
Bet the RAMS (-1.5, -110) to cover the spread and win by at least 2 points. Dallas' defense simply isn't playing well enough right now.
The projected total is 48.5 points, which is tied for the second-highest total of the week. The Rams and Cowboys are 12th and ninth in scoring, respectively, and both are in the top-six in passing offense. Translation: They can light up the scoreboard.
They'll score enough Sunday to push the total OVER (-115) 48.5 combined points.
