    St. Louis Rams Best Play On the Board This Week!

    After two intense road games against division rivals and winning both, there is absolutely no way Washington can have enough left in the tank to get amped up for a game against the pitiful Rams.

    The Rams, meanwhile, are coming fresh off of a bye with a new coach and with Bulger back in the driver's seat; you'd better believe he'll be ready to prove he belongs there.

    Four straight wins straight up and ATS for Washington, Four straight losses straight up and ATS for St. Louis.

    They will be very fresh and very hungry. Washington has to be completely exhausted and WILL let up on a team as garbage as the Rams.

    This is such a massive letdown situation for Washington it is unbelievable. St. Louis is the best bet of the day, and if you are a daredevil, you might even want to try the moneyline upset, too.

    My two cents

    I'd rather just pass than put any money on the Rams.

    My "Philosophy" Picks are 6 - 1 this season, and it is hard to find a much more perfect fit then this game.

    I agree, usc. Hoping for the line to cross the 14 first, but I will be on them as well...

    Agreed MF, definitely worth it to buy that half point.

    The letdown potential for Washington is great, and winless teams have done very well ATS in weeks 5 and later in the NFL (especially off byes), this line is too low. I make it 17.5 . I suggest passing.

    The Rams are scary, I'd rather pass on this one completely.

    Good luck.

    I offered rationale for my pick.. I'm not just taking them because they are a double digit underdog. I like Minnesota -13.0...

    You don't have to agree with me, but I have good reason to like this, I'm not just picking it because its a big number.

    Looks like Jason Taylor will start Sunday too, which would be awesome for the skins defense... We shall see -- I don't hang too much on any single game very often -- So if you beat me here, best of luck to ya

    This is a perfect setup for a St Louis win. I hope so, because I am in a Last Man Standing and everyone is going with Washington. Not me. I am not taking St Louis either.

    Bulger is Back. I think he is a Hall of Famer Quarter Back that can not get protection. If he can get protection, St Louis covers 13 this game. But, I don't see him getting protection and he will continue to kiss the grass.

    Bulger with protection: Rams 13 Wash 24
    Bulger without: Rams 6 Wash 20

    As disgruntled Rams fan, I assure you that I wouldn't be promoting the Rams ever if I didn't have reason to believe that they could cover. BUT, Washington is off two huge division wins and is due for a letdown. And if ever the Rams were to actually play hard, this would be the week with a new coach and all. So, I think the Rams are a great play this week despite the fact the team is composed of primarily horse droppings. Rams +13

    I'm taking the Rams +7 +105 in the 1st half. I have a feeling they'll get the ball first and should come out firing.

    Source?

    I generally hate trends, and think they are retarded, but this one (if true), at least has logical reasoning behind it.

    I read recently that home teams off a bye getting points were 75% ATS in the last 5-6 years as well. (Edit: Whoops, Rams on road. My bad)

    I see +14 (-115) at bodog, and am super tempted to take it.

    Well done! I bet against Washington last week for the same reason -- big win against division foe on the road -- I gave it one more shot this week. Congrats.
