1*LA Rams -4 & 1*Under 48.5 points


The Rams played the much tougher schedule (No. 2 vs. No. 25) and they get to play at home. This line suggests the Rams are 2.5 points better than the Bengals on a neutral field. The Rams lost the Super Bowl in 2019 (New England) and bring in a lot of experience . This line should really be closer to 5 or 5.5 points. Both teams are ranked in the
