Los Angeles Rams (5-2; 4-3 ATS; 5-2 O/U) vs. New York Giants (1-6; 3-4 ATS: 3-4 O/U)

NFL: Sunday, November 5, 2017 at 1:00pm EST

Line: Los Angeles -3.5

Total: 43

The Los Angeles Rams will target their third straight win when they take on the New York Giants in an NFC tilt Sunday afternoon from MetLife Stadium. The Rams blanked the Cardinals by a 33-0 score in their previous contest, and the Giants were handled 24-7 by the Seahawks in their latest action two weeks ago. The Giants defeated the Rams by a 17-10 score last season. Both teams are coming off their bye week.

Red Hot Rams Target Third Straight Win

The Los Angeles Rams have been one of the biggest surprises of the season led by rookie head coach Sean McVay. The Rams continued their scoring barrage by crushing the Cardinals by a 33-0 score in their latest action before heading into the bye. Jared Goff was mediocre, connecting on 22 of 37 passes for 235 yards with one touchdown against one interception. The 23-year old quarterback is having a strong season after a rough rookie campaign, collecting 1719 passing yards with a 9:4 TD to INT ratio. Third-year running back Todd Gurley continued his outstanding play in the win, accruing 106 rushing yards on 22 carries. The 23-year old running back is having a tremendous season, rushing for over 100 yards in four out of his last five games for a total of 627 yards and five touchdowns. Rams’ leading receiver Robert Woods made five grabs for 59 yards in the win over Arizona and has now tallied 381 yards on the year. The Rams offense has been incredible this season with no signs of slowing down. They have been able to put up big points against some strong defensive teams.

The Rams defense has been terrific this season and they were able to shutout the Cardinals in their latest action. They limited Arizona to 196 total yards and made two interceptions. The Rams have made nine interceptions on the year, good for third in the NFL. They have won two straight and are tied with the Seahawks for first in the NFC West.

Giants Injury Issues Take Toll

The injury-ravaged New York Giants are hoping their bye week will allow for a few key players to heal up in time for their home matchup against the Rams this week. The Giants only managed seven points in their 24-7 loss to the Seahawks in their latest action two weeks ago. Eli Manning did not have three of his top four receivers and as a result only tallied 134 passing yards with no touchdowns. The 36-year old quarterback has not played bad, especially considering the injuries, recording 1600 yards with a 10:5 TD to INT ratio. Evan Ingram leaped pass the injured Odell Beckham Jr. for the team lead in receiving in the loss, making six catches for 60 yards. The 23-year old tight end is having an outstanding rookie campaign, collecting 342 receiving yards. Orleans Darkwa led the way on the ground with 35 yards on nine carries in the Giants latest action and leads his team with 274 rushing yards. The Giants are playing without Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall who are both out for the year, however, Sterling Shepard should be back for this one.

The Giants defense struggled against the Seahawks in their latest action, surrendering 425 total yards which included 321 passing yards. The Giants have played without Olivier Vernon for the last three weeks and is questionable for this contest. It has been a disastrous season for the Giants with poor execution early and injury problems.

Trends:

The Los Angeles Rams are:

  • 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 games following a bye week.
  • the favorite is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 games between the Rams and Giants.

The New York Giants are:

  • 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games after allowing more than 250 passing yards in their previous game.
  • 5-12-1 ATS in their last 18 games following a bye week.

I am taking the Rams in this matchup. The Rams feature the number two ranked offense in the NFL with an average of 30.3 points per game and are up against a defense with several key pieces that are questionable for this contest. Even before their injuries the Giants were not living up to expectations, and have allowed at least 24 points in five out of their last six games. Furthermore, the Giants offense will struggle without Odell Beckham Jr., and are up against a strong Rams pass defense that is holding opponents to only 205 passing yards per game, and the Giants running game is only averaging 83 yards per game, so I can’t see them moving the ball with a lot of success.

Pick: Los Angeles Rams

I expect the Rams to continue their offensive success this week, however the Giants will likely struggle to score points. The Rams should have a strong afternoon offensively, however they are on the road, plus the under is 9-2 in their last 11 road games against a team with a losing home record. The Giants are going to have a tough time moving the ball similar to their 24-7 loss to the Seahawks against this Rams defense, plus the under is 7-1 in the Giants last eight games against a team with a winning record.

Pick: Under 43
