Bet on the NFLThe St Louis Rams stepped up their game last week, taking down the best offense and second-ranked defense in the NFL, as they beat the San Diego Chargers 20-17. Chris Long earned the NFC’s Defensive Player of the Week award for his two tackles, two sacks and two QB hits. The defense held the Chargers to a season-low 289 total yards. Online betting note: the Rams are 3 and 1 at home, but winless on the road, and unfortunately this weekend they travel to Tampa Bay to take on the Buccaneers.
As for the Bucs QB Josh Freeman had a good game last week, completing 25 of 43 passes for 219 yards and a touchdown. NFL betting tip: the Bucs are 4 to 2 right now, coming off a devastating loss to the Saints last weekend, where the final score was an embarrassing 31 to 6. Sportsbook listed that they are still the 3 point home faves to win this Sunday, with the over under listed at 38.
Rams offense will need to step it up and QB Sam Bradford will need to be especially careful as they face a defense that has 13 takeaways this season. Bradford will excersize caution when he throws the ball down the field as the Bucs secondary has 10 interceptions of those 13 takeaways.
The rookie has thrown 7 touchdowns against 8 interceptions and he needs to do a better job spreading the ball around without making turnovers. His running back, Steven Jackson has two straight 100-yard games and is 5th in the NFL with 507 yards and faces the second worse defense stopping the run in the league.
