Betting Odds: Los Angeles Rams at New Orleans Saints (-5.5)

  • Los Angeles Rams Moneyline: +205
  • New Orleans Saints Moneyline: -245 
  • Over/Under: 34.5
  • Kickoff: Aug. 30, 2018 – 8 p.m. ET

Los Angeles Rams

The public isn’t expecting much from two of last season’s top-four scoring offenses, as 88% percent of public tickets and 96% of the money have backed the under.

Neither Jared Goff nor Todd Gurley will play a single snap. Backup quarterback Sean Mannion hasn’t inspired much confidence with his performance, either, averaging only 3.7 yards per attempt. But backup running back John Kelly has flashed all August by gaining 197 yards and scoring three touchdowns on 46 carries (4.3 yards per carry).

It remains to be seen whether Kelly or incumbent backup Malcolm Brown will serve as Gurley’s handcuff.

New Orleans Saints

It’s still not clear who the Saints’ No. 3 wide receiver will be come September. Third-rounder Tre’Quan Smith appears to be the front-runner, as he’s reportedly excelled in practice and posted a preseason-long 11-147-1 line.

Still, Austin Carr has received plenty of preseason snaps, and the Saints aren’t paying Cameron Meredith $9.5 million over two years to sit on the bench.
