St. Louis is 4-6 after losing three in a row, but they've been known to get up for big games. This would count as such as Cincinnati has lost two in a row after winning their first seven.

Opening Odds & Line Movement
Open: -9 -105 at Pinnacle
The Bengals opened up at -9 at home, but the NFL odds have gone from -8.5 to -8 now as Cincinnati has fallen from the top tier of the NFL. They looked stunned in a 10-6 loss to Houston, and came up just short in a 34-31 loss in Arizona. Andy Dalton bounced back from a poor game against the Texans, but there are no more MVP conversations concerning him anymore. The Rams just can't seem to score as they haven't gone over 18 points during this slide and only San Francisco has scored fewer points per game. That might be just the cure needed for the Bengals, who are still fourth in the NFL in points allowed. It might even get worse for the Rams' offense.

Injuries
QB Case Keenum had to leave their loss in Baltimore due to a concussion, so he has to pass the league protocol in order to play. If not, the Rams will have to go back to Nick Foles, and they went to Keenum for a reason. As of Wednesday, Keenum was on track to play on Sunday, but concussions are a fickle thing. T Andrew Donnal had to leave the Baltimore game with a knee injury, while DE Robert Quinn didn't play because of his knee and hip. And then there is WR Stedman Bailey, who was shot in the head and is in critical, but stable, condition. There is no official word, but Bailey is likely gone for the season.

For the Bengals, CB Darqueze Dennard is now out for the season after getting surgery on his shoulder. CB Adam Jones wasn't at practice on Wednesday because of his foot, but he is expected to play on Sunday.

 

Trends
The Rams are 4-5-1 ATS overall, going 1-3-1 ATS on the road this season. The Bengals are 8-1-1 ATS, and they're 3-1-1 ATS at home. The total stands at 42, and the Bengals have gone over six times, while the Rams have gone over three times.

The Bengals are 2-3 SU and 0-4-1 ATS against the Rams since 1996, and in St. Louis, they're 1-2 SU and 0-2-1 ATS.
