The Los Angeles Rams continue at home and will host the Las Vegas Raiders on Thursday night at the SoFi Stadium. These teams haven't faced each other since 18-19 season where the Rams took the win 33-14.
Las Vegas Raiders
The Raiders get here with a 5-7 record and are 2-5 on the road so far this season ranking 3rd in the AFC West. In their last game at home, they beat the Chargers 27-20. Adams caught eight passes for 177 yards, surpassing 1,000 yards for the fourth time since 2018. Josh Jacobs rushed for 144 yards and a touchdown.
Defensively, the team has struggled, allowing 254.5 passing yards, and allowing 125.5 rushing yards per game. They are allowing 24.7 points per game. But, during this three game winning streak they have allowed an average of 23 points per game.
Los Angeles Rams
The Rams have lost 5 games in a row and get here with a 3-8 record. They are 2-4 at home ranking fourth in the NFC West. In their last game on the road, they lost 26-10 against the Chiefs. Playing without Matthew Stafford, who remained in the concussion protocol, the Rams struggled to move the chains behind Perkins.
The Rams have three quarterback alternatives, but none are Matthew Stafford, who is out with a bruised spinal cord. While suffering from a neck ailment, John Wolford wasn't spectacular in Los Angeles' loss to Seattle last weekend, and mobile third-stringer Bryce Perkins wasn't much better the week before. The Rams grabbed Baker Mayfield off waivers from the Carolina Panthers who should be active for this game but he's still not listed as the starter.
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.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Las Vegas' last 6 games.
Las Vegas are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games against LA Rams.
Las Vegas are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games against LA Rams.
Las Vegas are 2-6 SU in their last 8 games on the road..
Las Vegas are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games when playing on the road against LA Rams.
LA Rams are 3-10-1 ATS in their last 14 games.
The total has gone OVER in 4 of LA Rams' last 6 games.
LA Rams are 0-6 SU in their last 6 games.
The Rams are having a nightmare of season as they're stacked with injuries and have now lost 6 straight games. The Raiders have been on fire offensively and they are actually playing better defense lately. These teams are headed in opposite directions and whoever starts for the Rams it won't make a difference. The Raiders are by far the better team right now and should win this game easy.
