Rams vs. Buccaneers Breakdown and Betting Odds
The 3-4 Rams take a long trip east to take on the 3-5 Tampa Bay Buccaneers on November 6 at 4:25 PM EST.
The Bucs are a 3-point favorite, and the over/under is set at 42.5.
Los Angeles Rams Overview
The defending Super Bowl Champion Rams have not yet shown the sparkle that carried them through the 2021 season. Quarterback Matthew Stafford dealt with elbow injuries in the offseason, and now his favorite target Cooper Kupp is dealing with an ankle injury. There have been lingering issues between the team and running back Cam Akers that made many wonder if the Rams would try to deal him prior to the NFL trade deadline.
The Rams are ranked 20th in the Pro Football Talk Week 9 ratings which is indicative of how far they have fallen.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Overview
Like the Rams, the same type of season has ensued for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 2021 Super Bowl Champions look like a team struggling to find its way.
Pro Football Talk has the Bucs at 19th in the Week 9 rankings. These teams are evenly matched in a way not close to what people envisioned when this game was announced in May with the NFL schedule release.
The Bucs are getting the home field advantage with the point spread, but this game is up for grabs in every way including the pride factor. Staying at or near .500 is important for both teams as they try to muddle through the 2022 season.
Free Pick: Under 42.5
The lack of electricity on either team’s offense means this could be a low scoring defensive matchup making Under 42.5 the best choice.
