Philadelphia Eagles vs. Los Angeles Rams Betting Odds and Previews

Sunday night brings two teams in two
very different situations together on the gridiron. The Los
Angeles Rams
(11-2) have clinched a spot in the playoffs and are
now fighting for the top seed in the conference while the
Philadelphia Eagles (6-7) will need a miracle even to have a chance
of defending their title as Super Bowl champions, making this game a
must-win. While the schedulers may have looked at this as a marquee
matchup during the offseason, it does have the potential to be an
exciting game, especially if you were to bet on this Sunday Night
Football matchup here at, where you will find the best
football betting odds
for this game and other NFL games as well.

The Philadelphia
only have a 7 percent chance of making the postseason, and
it’s likely that playoff spot would be a Wild Card spot, especially
after last week’s loss to the Dallas Cowboys have given their hated
division rival a nice cushion atop the NFC East. The Eagles offense
has been inconsistent, a far cry from last year, with Philadelphia
just averaging 21.6 points per game, and their offense could take a
big hit going into the matchup. The Eagles have already lost running
back Corey Clement for the season, and quarterback Carson Wentz may
not be available Sunday night with a back injury, which means
Philadelphia might need to turn to backup Nick Foles, though as far
as backup quarterbacks go, a Super Bowl MVP isn’t a bad option. The
Eagles defense may also be shorthanded, with defensive end Michael
Bennett, linebacker Jordan Hicks, and cornerback Sidney Jones all
missing practice on Thursday and listed as questionable for Sunday

The Rams, on the other hand, have
had no problems scoring on offense, averaging 32.7 points per game,
but finally hit a roadblock last Sunday night in a loss to the
Chicago Bears, whose defense held Todd Gurley and co. to a paltry 6
points. The Philadelphia defense will likely not cause as many
headaches as the new Monsters of the Midway, so look for Gurley and
quarterback Jared Goff to have a bounce-back game Sunday night. The
Rams defense has also done its job this season, holding opponents to
about a touchdown less than its offense, allowing 24.1 points per
game. As far as injuries are concerned, the Rams placed backup
running back Malcolm Brown and cornerback Dominique Hatfield on
injured reserve, but most of the significant impact starters are all
healthy heading into their matchup against the Eagles.

The Rams will be looking for revenge
Sunday night, looking to avenge last year’s 43-35 loss.
Philadelphia leads the all-time series 21-19-1 and have won the past
five meetings. In fact, the Rams have not defeated the Eagles since
December 27, 2004 – almost 14 years ago. And while it would be nice
to break the losing streak to the Eagles, the Rams will be more
focused on winning to keep pace with the Saints in the race for
home-field advantage through the playoffs. As for the Eagles, while 7
percent isn’t a whole lot to rest their hope on, their postseason
hopes are still alive and will remain so if they can pull off the
upset Sunday night.
