Rams at Eagles Betting Preview: Rams (-1/+100), Eagles (+1/-120)
Los Angeles Rams Odds
The Rams are coming off a 20-17 win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1, and while it was not exactly a Picasso, it was good enough. Malcolm Brown ran for a couple touchdowns and will try to keep his hot start going against a talented Eagles club.
Jared Goff posted a mediocre 79.4 passer rating after throwing for 275 yards, zero touchdowns and one interception, and it will be interesting to see what head coach Sean McVay dials up for him this week.
The Rams got to Dak Prescott for three sacks and will look to pressure Carson Wentz throughout their Week 2 matchup.
Philadelphia needs to regroup quickly after an ugly 27-17 loss against Washington in the season opener. This will be the home opener for the Eagles, but home-field advantage is nothing like it has been in recent seasons.
A more balanced attack could help the Eagles, whose top rusher (Boston Scott) managed only 35 yards in the first week. Washington sacked Wentz eight times and picked him off twice, and Los Angeles has to be licking its chops as it dissects the game film from Week 1.
Rams at Eagles Betting Pick for Week 2
The Rams are slight favorites on the road, and it is hard to bet against them because of their stout defensive line. Their strength up front seems to match up with the Eagles’ weakness, which is protecting Wentz and allowing the passing game to develop.
Philadelphia almost certainly will play with renewed focus and desperation, but that might not mean much at the end of the day if Wentz is not able to get comfortable in the pocket.

Rams 28, Eagles 24
Rams at Eagles Best Bet for Week 2
Both teams have had a week to build chemistry and review game film, and a fast-paced game could be in order. Goff and Wentz both have the ability to go deep on any drive, and there is no shortage of weapons on either side that can make big plays. Look for a pass-first approach by both teams and a high-scoring result that follows.
Rams at Eagles Best Bet: OVER 45.5 (+110)
