The Los Angeles Rams will host the Carolina Panthers on Sunday at the SoFi Stadium. These teams haven't met since 2019 season and the Rams beat the Panthers 30-27 in Carolina covering the spread as -1.5 pts favorites.
The Panthers didn't show much and struggled in the first 3 weeks but were able to beat the Saints 22-14 at home. For the Panthers, Christian McCaffrey has two games with at least 100 yards rushing. The 2019 All-Pro is currently tied for fifth in the league in rushing with 243 yards and is looking explosive, especially when he gets in the open field after being limited to 32 yards in the season opener.
Carolina's defense had three turnovers against the Saints after having none in the previous two games. WR Laviska Shenault had two catches for 90 yards, including a 67-yard catch and run for a touchdown, in his Panthers debut against New Orleans
Los Angeles Rams
The Rams were dominated by Buffalo in the kick off game of the season but they won the next 2 games against the Falcons and the Cardinals. The Rams are posting the third-lowest rushing average in the NFL at 72.3 yards per game, easily the lowest mark in McVay's six seasons, while averaging a pitiful 3.4 yards per run. Although Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson are having trouble, McVay has still found ways to exploit the fundamental components of the running game.
The Defense survived quite an onslaught on Sunday afternoon defending 58 passing plays from Arizona's Kyler Murray, who is notoriously hard to defend because of his ability to throw and run.. Aaron Donald has one sack in his past five games against San Francisco after having 10 1/2 the previous six meetings.
Carolina are 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 games against LA Rams.
Carolina are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games against LA Rams.
Carolina are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games on the road.
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Carolina's last 7 games when playing on the road against LA Rams.
The total has gone UNDER in 6 of LA Rams' last 7 games.
LA Rams are 11-4 SU in their last 15 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of LA Rams' last 7 games against Carolina.
LA Rams are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games at home.
The Panthers have been awful offensively in the last 2 games averaging only 15 points per game and they won't count with Baker Mayfield for this game due to injury so PJ Tucker will be the quarteback against one of the toughest defenses in the league. The Rams have been even worst offensively scoring 9.5 points per game in their last 2 games but what better chances to bounce back facing a weak defense like the Panthers. The Rams need this win at home to get back on track. Take the Rams.
