I’m expecting the Rams offense to rule the day this week. Matthew Stafford already seems to have good chemistry with Cooper Kupp and tight end Tyler Higbee, with the latter seeing targets on six of Stafford’s 26 throws (23%).
Higbee should blow past his receptions prop if that share of the work continues to flow his way and Stafford throws five to 10 more passes..
I’d bet it this down to -170.

Rams Will Rely Heavily On Stafford
Without Darrell Henderson, the Rams did most of their damage through the air last week, running for only 74 yards.
Stafford locked in heavily on Kupp, targeting him 10 times (38% of his throws). With this game projected to be closer than last week’s matchup, expect even more passing from Stafford and the Rams.
The Rams defense could be dominant too. Led by all-world defensive lineman Aaron Donald and a top-10 secondary, they’ll be a problem for opposing offenses all season. The Rams defense combined to sack Andy Dalton three times in Week 1 and added two takeaways.
Colts Desperate For O-Line Improvement
The Colts’ best shot at winning this one is on the ground.
With T.Y. Hilton on injured reserve, the Colts’ passing attack struggled in Week 1, as both of their leaders in receiving yards were running backs. Carson Wentz — whose mobility was limited by a preseason foot injury — also took three sacks last week against the Seahawks.
With starting left guard Quenton Nelson and right tackle Braden Smith both missing practice on Monday, this offensive line will be in big trouble if they aren’t at full strength.
Indy is hoping last season’s top-10 defense will return this week. They allowed Seattle to put up 28 points and will struggle to keep pace if the Rams get to that number.
