Best Bets for Rams at Packers Divisional Round NFL Game!
I can assume for most people Wildcard weekend was a bit overwhelming as it was the first time in NFL history that the league hs had 6 stand-alone games. The Wildcard weekend was nice in regards to quantity but 4 games over two days is by far the perfect amount. You have a nice warm-up game in the late afternoon to test how hot you are feeling on the day and even you are ice cold it just was just a warm-up for all the money you are going to win on the night game. But don't worry I'll make sure you start off hot and are rolling into the Saturday night. Let's look at some bets!
Los Angeles Rams at Green Bay Packers
Tyler Higbee (LAR): Total Receiving Yards Over 26.5 -118, Anytime Touchdown Scorer +225
5 TDs on the season, Higbee has been a lot more sporadic than most thought with all the hype he was getting coming into the season. A lot of that is due to the shift in the Rams' play calling with a lot more focus on the run game and defense. But with the Rams struggling to score they will look to Higbee who an elite playmaker for a TE in a plus matchup against the Packers linebackers.
Cam Akers (LAR) Total Rush Attempts over 17.5 +100,
Total Receiving Yards Over 15.5 -118
If it ain't broke don't fix the bitch. No matter how much you think the Rams will be chasing points in this game, they will look to control the game with the run. Goff is known for his baby hands, the game is in the cold weather of Green Bay and Goff only has 4 fingers right now... look for the Rams to limit Goff's chances of turnovers by handing off the ball 200 times. Akers has been unleashed in the second half of the season but his props are still well behind in regards to matching his usage and his skill set. On top of handing off the ball look for Goff to look to check down the ball to TE's and RB's whenever he can.
Will There Be A Missed Field Goal Attempt? Yes +100
If Matt Gay being the Rams kicker is enough for you to take this bet, just think how desperate the Rams have been for points. Every kick is not just a kick in a playoff game but also could be the only chance the Rams have at scoring depending on what Rams offense shows up today. Mason Crosby on the other hand has not missed a kick this season... hmm seems if history has taught has anything kickers with perfect seasons usually save their first miss for a big game-clinching kick in the playoffs. Just take the bet and so you have a reason to get hyped up and yell at the TV every time there is a boring-ass kicker on the field.
Packers First Half -3.5 (-120)
The Rams have been one of the best second-half football teams in football with their defensive adjustments and ball control. But the Packers coming off the bye and fully healthy will look to get out to a big lead early in the game. Look for the Packers to take advantage of the Rams defense before they can make the needed adjustments in the second half.
