An all NFC West clash brings a close to Wildcard Weekend as the Rams host the Cardinals with both sides knowing a trip to Tampa to face Tom Brady, and the reigning Super Bowl champion Bucs awaits the winner. These teams split their two meetings during the regular season, with the travelling team winning both matchups. Will Kyler Murray lead his Cardinals to another win in L.A. this year, or will Matt Stafford’s veteran presence win out and allow the Rams to progress on their quest of a home Super Bowl?
Cooper Kupp is a contender for OPOY honours when the end of season awards are announced. After a historically good regular season, the former Eastern Washington pass-catcher will be keen to continue his fine form in the postseason. Kupp had 11 games in the regular season with 100 or more receiving yards. And in this “win or go home” scenario, I expect Matt Stafford to get the ball to his favourite target early and often, especially when you consider Kupp finished with a 13/123/1 stat line in the last meeting between these two sides. That TD was one of 16 Kupp scored during the regular season.
Spread: Rams -3.5
Game Prediction: Rams 28-21 Cardinals
Best Bet: Cooper Kupp over 103.5 receiving yards & to score a TD @ 9/5 with Bet365 Bet Builder.
