Finally, Jared Goff gets his first NFL start. But will the No.1 NFL draft pick coax the Rams offense out of its coma or are the Dolphins set to ride roughshod over the rookie? We serve up choice NFL picks to spot.

 

  Miami Dolphins vs Los Angeles Rams  

 

Point Spread Value

Injecting Jared Goff into the line-up, a player most NFL bettors haven’t seen play a game this season, changes the dynamic. Not to mention, Jeff Fischer has been banging on about his rookie quarterback and how ill-prepared he really is for the NFL all season long. How are we to add up those things and arrive at a sensible NFL pick is anybody’s guess. Suppose, we can only hang our hat on tangibles: such as the Dolphins are riding a four-game winning streak which includes four-straight covers: 30-15 over the Steelers as +7.5 home underdogs, 28-25 over Buffalo as +2.5 home underdogs, 27-23 over Jets as-3.5 home chalk and 31-24 over the Chargers as +4.5 road underdogs.

The Survivor

Consider Los Angeles are finally heeding the calls and starting Jared Goff in week 11 throws a bit of a spanner into the works. What will the Rams offense look like is anybody’s guess. Will Goff live up to the standard other rookies have set this season, namely Dak Prescott. (If so, many will be asking why Fischer didn’t start Goff in week 1?). In any event, betting on the Rams to win at home would be more a gut call rather than an NFL pick based on tangibles. Might be smarter to stick with current NFL betting trends that tip the balance slightly with the Dolphins.

Game Total

Miami Dolphins turn around a horrendous start on the season and come into this game riding the momentum and confidence of a four-game winning streak. They seem to have figured out how to work the offense as best as they can with the quality of their quarterback, Ryan Tannehill. A tight leash on the starter and running the ball more often than not seems to be doing the trick. It presents an interesting matchup with the Rams that are desperately searching for their offense. All in all, this has the look of another tight grind between defensive-minded outfits.
