ARIZONA CARDINALS @ LOS ANGELES RAMS

Big game in the NFC West as the two unbeaten divisional foes battle it out to stand alone atop the division at 4-0. Will Kyler Murray finally get a win over the Rams or, will Sean Mcvay’s perfect record against the Cardinals continue?

The LA Rams convincingly beat the reigning Super Bowl champs on Sunday as they pushed aside Tom Brady and the Bucs in what could well be the NFC Championship matchup we get in late January. Cooper Kupp has been in unbelievable form to start the season and, his connection with Matt Stafford looks like it’ll make the pair contenders for the MVP & OPOY awards at seasons end. Kupp has 3TDs in 6 career games against Arizona, and with 5TDs in 3 games so far this season, I wouldn’t be surprised if he finds himself in the endzone once more. 

The Cardinals find themselves 3-0 but, after an impressive performance in Week 1 against the Titans, they have failed to impress since though, only just surviving the Vikings in Week 2 before making hard work of a poor Jags side last week. As we mentioned above Kyler Murray is yet to beat the Rams, finding himself 0-4 against them. He’s failed to do a lot of what makes Kyler himself against a fast Rams defense that has always done a great job of containing him. In the four games played against the Rams, Murray has yet to rush for 30 yards in a single game. He’s also yet to rush for more than 31 yards in a game this season so, his U/O 33.5 rushing yards line seems a bit too inflated, as does his U/O 7.5 rushing attempts line. Kyler has yet to have more than 7 carries in a single game this season and has never had more than 5 in a single game against the Rams. 

Spread: Rams -3.5

Total Match Points line: U/O 54.5

Game Prediction: Rams 37-27 Cardinals 

Best Bet: Kyler Murray under 7.5 rushing attempts & 33.5 rushing yards @ 7/4 with Bet365 Bet Builder. [0.5]
