NFL Betting Picks: St. Louis Rams vs Cleveland Browns
Sunday the St. Louis Rams (1-7) travel to take on the Cleveland Browns (3-5). BetDSI Sportsbook current Live Lines show the Browns as a -145 favorite giving up 3 points to the Rams in this betting pick.
Last week the St. Louis Rams offense sputtered through a 19-13 loss to the Cardinals. QB Sam Bradford once again this year wasen’t at his best, throwing 23 completions on 36 attempts for 255 yards no TD’s and an interception. RB Steven Jackson has been the only bright spot as of recent for this Rams team, last week he had 29 attempts for 130 yards.
The St. Louis defense have been getting lit up all year, but last week was their second lowest points allowed this season at 19. If the offense could have possibly kept the defense off the field long enough for a breather maybe they could have won. The Rams were stingy allowing only 262 total yards, 192 passing yards, 70 rushing, and only letting Arizona convert 2 out of 10 times on 3rd down.
Last week the Cleveland Browns offense could only muster 12 whole points against the Houston Texans who smashed on them for 30 points. In that game QB Colt McCoy threw 14 completions on 22 attempts for 146 yards, a TD and a INT. They had zero rushing attack with RB Chris Ogbonnaya rushing 13 times for only 28 yards. The Browns still need a big time receiver for McCoy as the best they have is a overachieving converted return man WR Josh Cribbs.
The Browns defense got ramped on by Houston, giving up an insane 261 yards rushing, and 3 touchdowns running. MLB D’Qwell Jackson may have been the only one who showed up to play, with 9 tackles and an interception. Apart from that it was big running play after big running play by Houston.
Betting Prediction: The St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson has been shredding teams playing tough even in losses. I think with the way the Cleveland Browns cannot stop the run, that the Rams are a great selection in this match up.
