Team Outlook and Scouting Report

LONG TERM OUTLOOK: TRENDING UP

The Rams are championship contenders and their chances are clearly on the rise. In our pre-season forecast they had a 6.4% chance of winning it all. On 9/1 they had a 5.3% chance before increasing to 24.2% on 10/23. From the start of the season to now their chances are up significantly to 18%. They are basically a lock to win the division at 98%. Based on the odds, they have a 41.7% chance of winning the NFC (7/5) and a 26.7% chance of winning it all (11/4). In simulations they make the Super Bowl 35.3% of the time.

SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: B+

Early in the season, we include last season in the analysis. At 9-1 the Rams are exceeding expectations. The combined projected win total based on per game money lines is 7.4 wins. They have greatly exceeded their expected win percentage on the road and at home. Their 4-1 road record is +10% better than expected. Their 5-0 home record is +22% better. Over the past 3 weeks they have not played as well going 3-1, 75%. We have simulated the Rams playing every other team on a neutral court (with players who would be available in the playoffs) and they won an impressive 66.9% of the time (#4 in the league). They have moved up from #11 in the league back on 9/1.

They are an elite scoring team based on points per game, which make sense given their strong yards per play rank. They are an above average scoring defense, despite a lower TD per play allowed rate.

TEAM DEFENSE:

NEXT 4 GAME OUTLOOK: MOSTLY SUNNY

The forecast for their next 4 games is generally good. They have 3 likely wins where they are winning >62% of the simulations which translates to being at least a -5 point favorite, and no games where they are a clear underdog. They win four games in 16.2% of simulations.
