Rams -4 over Cardinals

The Rams have corralled Kyler Murray, beating his Cards in four of five career matchups, and are 8-1-1 against the spread in the last 10 matchups. The Cardinals’ strengths – slowing opposing tight ends and keeping running backs out of the end zone – don’t help against a Rams offense that wants to get the ball to WRs as often as possible.

No team has allowed more TDs to wideouts than Arizona. The Cards have dropped six of 10 since winning their first seven, bringing Arizona sports betting fans back down to Earth. Back the veteran Rams to roll at home.

Cardinals-Rams, Over 49.5 Points

The Over/Under for Monday Night Football sits at an NFL line of 49.5, the highest total of the week. It’s below the totals in the two games they’ve already played, which hit 53 and 57. Defense often does shine in the Wild Card Round.

But offense shines when these teams meet. Murray vs. the Rams in the last four instances has averaged 57.8 total points.

Rams -190 ML over Cardinals

The teams have been heading in opposite directions the last two months. Arizona opened the year 7-0 but has since lost six of 10. The Rams had won five straight before falling in OT to the surging 49ers.

More important, the matchups on the field favor the Rams in almost every instance. Murray has rallied his team in close games before. But L.A., on paper anyway, should at the very least advance. Back them on your sports betting app.

Matthew Stafford, Over 1.5 TDs

Odds: -225 at BetMGM

No team has allowed more touchdowns to receivers than the Cardinals. Stafford has tossed two-plus TDs in all but four games, including both vs. Arizona this season. He also threw for over 280 yards in each instance despite top WR Cooper Kupp having his worst game of the year in one of them.

A.J. Green, Over 43.5 Receiving Yards

Odds: -115 at BetMGM

Fellow Cardinals WR Christian Kirk will likely get the attention of Rams CB Jalen Ramsey – and that’s not a good matchup for the young Kirk. That means more looks for the veteran Green, who has been wildly inconsistent but twice has been solid vs. the Rams, including a 102-yard outburst on Dec. 13.
