Denver Broncos

The Broncos get here with a 5-8 record and are 3-3 at home so far this season ranking 3rd in the NFC North. In their last game, they beat the Bears 28-19 on the road. Rodgers led three fourth-quarter scoring drives, receiver Christian Watson took an end-around 46 yards for a touchdown in the closing minutes to win the game. The team is is averaging 20.2 points per game. They are throwing for 220.2 yards and rushing for 125.4 yards per game.

Los Angeles Rams

The Rams have lost 6 of their last 7 games and get here with a 4-9 record. They are 1-4 on the road ranking 3rd in the NFC West. In their last game at home they beat the Raiders 17-16. Mayfield led the Rams to two late fourth-quarter touchdowns and a stunning victory

The Defense is allowing 23 points per game and has been very tough against the run allowing only 97 yards and 240 passing yards. Los Angeles' run defense has been solid, ranking fourth in the NFL with linebacker Bobby Wagner leading the effort but Aaron Donald is still out.

LA Rams are 0-8 ATS in their last 8 games against Denver.

LA Rams are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games against Denver.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of LA Rams' last 6 games on the road.

LA Rams are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games when playing on the road against Denver.

Denver are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Denver's last 5 games.

Denver are 2-7 SU in their last 9 games.

Prediction

The Rams ended their losing streak after beating Raiders in Baker Mayfield debut with the team but they will now face a team who has dominated them in past seasons. Baker Mayfield lost against the Broncos last season and now he's playing with a shorthanded Rams team. The Broncos haven't been good this season but they are 6-1 in their last 7 games when playing at home against LA Rams. However, Russell Wilson hasn't looked good this season and neither the entire offense so I'll back up the home team to take this win.

PICK: Rams ML (+160)
