NFL Betting Predictions: St. Louis Rams at New York Giants
Tonight at 8:30 PM Eastern, the St. Louis Rams travel to MetLife Stadium to take on the New York Giants. BetDSI.eu sportsbook http://betdsi.com/live-lines/football currently have the Giants a large -335 favorite against the Rams giving up -7 via the spread.
The St. Louis Rams Offense was not good at all last week , with their total yards looking better than their actual offensive output. Rams QB Sam Bradford against the elite secondary of the Eagles put up 17 completions on 30 attempts for 56.7 completions rate, 188 yards, 0 TD’s 0 INT’s and a not “WINNING!” 75.4 QB rating. RB Steven Jackson looked great on his 2 rushes before getting injured and did not participate in practice all this week. This leaves veteran RB Cadillac Williams as the starting RB who can fight for tough yardage but appears to have lost his explosive abilities in taking huge gains at a time. RB Williams ran last week 19 times for 91 yards a 4.8 yards per a carry with a longest of 16 yards , all very respectable but not Steven Jackson type explosive.
The way the Eagles ate up the Rams defense it is almost not even worth mentioning the stats here for the Rams D, however I will give you a few of their stats for knowledge sake while not singling out a single player as I don’t believe any are deserving of it. The Rams D grabbed up 3 sacks and 1 forced fumble, and did not force a single interception.
The New York Giants offense did not look good last week either with QB Eli Manning playing terrible throwing 18 completions on 32 attempts for a 56.3 completion rate, 268 yards , 0 TD’s and an INT (deep in his own territory brought back for a TD), for a very low QB rating of 70.8. Besides Ahmad Bradshaw’s 1TD the running game would of not been missed had they of been late to the bus as RB Bradshaw only had 44 yards on 13 carries , and Brandon Jacobs had 29 yards on 6 carries.
The Giants defense did show up to play however getting 4 sacks 1 forced fumble. Jason Pierre who I have said in previous posts has looked great grabbing 6 tackles , 2 sacks , and a forced fumble. This defense could make Rams QB Sam Bradford have a really long day if they are continuously able to get to the young QB (which I think they will).
My Prediction: The Giants are going to give the young Rams QB Sam Bradford hell in this game, and if their offense can pick up and play to its potential they certainly could light it up on this poor Rams defense. I have the Giants winning this by a touchdown , take the Giants at -7.
