Team Outlook and Scouting Report

SEASON FORECASTS AND FUTURES PICKS

Even if Todd Gurley is 80% the player he was a year ago, the return of Cooper Kupp keeps the Rams in solid contention. They are one of 4 teams with 12/1, 7.7% odds to win the Super Bowl. Even with the juice, the Rams are a good betting value. Their 10.5% chance to win the Super Bowl (based on simulations) is #4 in the league. They are also a good bet to win the NFC at 5/1, 16.7%. Their sim chance is 21.2%. Our projection is leaning on them to win under 10.5 games. The Rams are averaging 10.1 wins per sim. At -300 the Rams are a good value to make the playoffs with a 78.2% chance. Their odds of winning their division are 4/7, 63.6%. They win the division in 62.3% of simulations. Their average wins per simulation puts them at #2 in the NFC.
