NFL Week 8 Football Props: Rams vs. Packers

The Rams continue to roll. Boasting an impressive 7-0 start, they're the favorites to win Super Bowl 53. Jared Goff is playing as an MVP candidate, Aaron Donald is Wreaking havoc for QBs in the backfield, Todd Gurley the unstoppable force that has yet to meet the immovable object. They've posted 235 points and allowed only 128 (a point differential of +107). It's true, 3 of those games were against the dismally woeful 49ers, Cardinals, and Raiders. However, starting Sunday, they'll begin a tough stretch, facing the Packers, Saints, and Seahawks before heading into their Bye Week.

Green Bay is coming off of a much-needed bye week. Their wide-receiving corps hasn't seemed to be 100% healthy since week 1. Aaron Rodgers has slowly but surely been improving his mobility, allowing him to be more of a threat outside of the pocket. The Rams pose their biggest challenge of the season so far, and a win this week (combined with a Minnesota loss) would put the Packers atop the NFC North. After the Rams, the Packers play New England, Miami, Seattle and Minnesota, and only the game vs the Dolphins is at home.

It's interesting to note that the Packers are 0-2 on the road, and 1 field goal away from being 4-0 at home. The Rams are averaging just over 35 Points at home and 32 on the road, so it doesn't really matter where they play. Los Angeles comes in as 9-point favorites to a game that very likely will have playoff implications down the line.

Alternate lines are available at Sugar House Sportsbook if you live in the state of New Jersey.
