Week 15 of the NFL will conclude with this conference clash in Green Bay on Monday, December 19, and here you can take a look at the best Rams vs. Packers betting pick and odds.
Green Bay is coming off a bye week when they welcome Los Angeles at Lambeau Field. The Packers are 7-point favorites on Jazz Sportsbook, while the total is set at 39.5 points. These conference rivals faced once last year and the Packers won 36-28 in Green Bay.
Rams finally snapped a losing skid
The Los Angeles Rams (4-9-0, 5-7-1 ATS) finally ended their six-game losing streak with a tight 17-16 home victory over the Las Vegas Raiders. The Rams were 13-3 down at halftime but allowed just three points in the second half and scored a game-winning touchdown with just ten seconds remaining in Baker Mayfield’s first game as a Ram.
Mayfield completed 22 of 35 passes for 230 yards and that crucial touchdown pass to Van Jefferson in the dying moments of the game. Ben Skowronek chipped in a career-high 89 yards on seven receptions, while Tutu Atwell had 50 yards on five catches. Cam Akers scored a rushing TD and finished with 42 yards on 12 carries. On defense, Bobby Wagner was phenomenal with a game-high 14 tackles.
QB Matthew Stafford (neck), WR Allen Robinson II (foot), WR Cooper Kupp (ankle), and QB John Wolford (neck) are out indefinitely. DT Aaron Donald (ankle), LB Travin Howard (hip), CB David Long Jr. (groin), and LB Terrell Lewis (back) are questionable to play on Monday against Green Bay.
Packers are coming off a bye week after beating Chicago
The Green Bay Packers (5-8-0, 5-8-0 ATS) scored 18 points in the fourth quarter to come from behind and beat the divisional foes Chicago Bears 28-19 on the road. The Packers trailed 16-3 at one point, and although the Bears were better in total yards, Green Bay’s defense forced three turnovers and the offense didn’t commit a single one on the other end.
Aaron Rodgers completed 18 of 31 passes for 182 yards and a touchdown. The pass offense didn’t work very well, but the Packers were excellent on the ground. AJ Dillon had a game-high 93 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries, while Christian Watson brought his lone carry to the end zone on a 46-yard rushing TD. He also scored a receiving touchdown, while Allen Lazard led the team with 67 receiving yards on five catches. Defensively, De’Vondre Campbell posted a team-high ten tackles.
T David Bakhtiari (appendectomy), S Darnell Savage (foot), and WR Romeo Doubs (ankle) are questionable to feature against the Rams on Monday.
- 1-3-1 ATS in the last five vs. NFC rivals
- 2-7-1 ATS in the last ten games after accumulating less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game
- 13-6 ATS in the last 19 games after accumulating more than 350 total yards in their previous game
Los Angeles Rams vs. Green Bay Packers Pick
The reigning Super Bowl champions have one of the weakest offenses in the NFL this season as it averages 16.8 points per game. With all the injuries to Stafford, Kupp, and Robinson II, the Rams are quite limited on offense, and Mayfield will have a tough job against the fifth-best pass defense in the league that allows 192.9 yards per contest. On the other hand, I expect to see a bounce-back display from Rodgers and 250+ passing yards against the Rams, who are allowing 228.6 yards to the opposing receivers. The Packers are far from being impressive this year, but at the moment, they are better than the Rams for a touchdown.
Pick: Take the Packers at -6.5 (-110)
The Rams are going to struggle through the air and considering they are averaging just 86.1 rushing yards per game, I’d be surprised if they score more than 14 points here. Green Bay doesn’t have a strong defense, but with this Los Angeles’ offense, I can only expect a low-scoring affair. Under is 5-1 in the Rams’ last six road games; Under is 8-3 in Los Angeles’ previous 11 games after accumulating less than 90 yards rushing in their last game, while Under is 4-0 in the Rams’ last four games on grass.
Pick: Go Under 40.5 points (-125)
