Betting market: The biggest favorite of the week, the Rams are getting less support heading into this week than they typically have. At 53% of spread bets as of writing (see live data here), this would be their second-lowest bet percentage behind their Week 4 matchup with the Vikings, in which they closed with 48%.

Perhaps the public is tired of losing.

Even though the Rams are 6-0 straight-up, the fell to 3-3 against the spread last week with their third consecutive loss ATS. With C.J. Beathard and San Francisco putting up a fight in Green Bay, almost half of bettors want the points. Some books have moved the line from 10 to 9.5 as a result. Mark Gallant

Trends to know: Undefeated teams favored by double-digits have been more profitable in the first two months of the regular season than the last two, with a 34-22-1 ATS record in September and October compared to 8-16 ATS record in November and December. John Ewing
