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 Betmania.ag, where you will find the best football betting odds for this game and other NFL games as well.

The Philadelphia Eagles 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 night.

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.
