Betting market: The Rams opened at -9.5 and had been bet up to -9 before the Carson Wentz (back) injury. After the game went off the board, the line reopened at -11 with Nick Foles set to start.

There was a bit of buyback on the Eagles once it reopened, with a reverse line move dropping the line to 10.5, initially suggesting sharp bettors didn’t believe there was a two-point difference between Wentz and Foles. But the line has since been bet all the way up to 13 behind 56% of the bets (see live odds here). Mark Gallant

Trends to know: The Rams are 11-2 straight-up but 5-7-1 against the spread.

Since 2003, teams that have won 80% or more their games but have a losing ATS record (like Los Angeles) have gone 31-40-2 ATS in their next game, including 1-4 ATS in December or later. John Ewing

The Rams are averaging 32.7 points per game, which is third-most in the NFL behind only the Chiefs and Saints. But last week in Chicago, Los Angeles mustered only six points in a loss.

Since 2003, 10 teams have played a game in December or later that are averaging at least 30 points per game and have scored just 14 or fewer points in their previous game.

Those teams are 9-1 SU and 7-3 ATS in their next game, covering by 5.2 points while averaging 31.7 points. Evan Abrams
