Where Can I Watch?
Why Bet on the Rams?
The Los Angeles Rams have had an irregular start, winning two games and losing two others. So, they are third in the Western Division of the National Conference, two games behind the San Francisco 49ers.
In their last game, they defeated the Indianapolis Colts 29-23, with a magnificent performance by quarterback Matthew Stafford, catching 27 of 40 passes, with 319 yards, one touchdown, and one interception.
As well as Stafford, it is important to highlight the role of Kyren Williams. He completed 103 yards, with an average of 4.1 per carry, and scored two touchdowns.
Another positive aspect for Los Angeles is that they were able to show a great ground game against the Colts, which highlights their good physical condition and that there are offensive variations with a healthy Stafford. In addition, they did not depend so much on wide receiver Puka Nacua, who scored a touchdown in the game.
The most sensitive loss for the Rams is wide receiver Cooper Kupp, who has hamstring problems. Alaric Jackson, Tyler Higbee, Kyren Williams, and Stafford are in doubt.
Why Bet on the Eagles?
The Philadelphia Eagles are clear candidates to reach the Super Bowl. Their start has been powerful, getting four wins in four outings.
Their last performance resulted in a close 34-31 victory over the Washington Commanders, with a monstrous game by Jalen Hurts, who led the offense with excellent numbers.
He completed 25 of 37 passes, 319 air yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions. He also had nine carries, with 34 ground yards and an average of 3.8 per action.
Hurts was very well accompanied by AJ Brown, who had two touchdowns and 175 ground yards.
However, there were defensive lapses with Zach Cunningham, Terrell Edmunds, and James Bradberry, which should be a wake-up call not to relax. There is a fact that sentences the team’s defense: they have allowed more touchdowns than they have scored.
Britain Covey, Fletcher Cox, Cam Jurgens, Marlon Tulpulotu, Sydney Brown, Justin Evans, and Quez Watkins are injured for the Eagles.
Final Betting Analysis: Rams at Eagles
The Philadelphia Eagles return home to face the Los Angeles Rams, and their undefeated record will certainly be maintained despite the defensive problems. The great momentum of the Jalen Hurts – AJ Brown duo promises to destroy the visiting defense.
