Point Spread: -2/-114 New England
Play New England Patriots -2.
Big issue against the Rams is the health of Todd Gurley and their play in the red zone. Gurley does not have the fast speed to the hole like he showed earlier in the season. Something is not right, and he had knee treatments near the end of the regular season. Another issue has been the play of the Rams inside the red zone. They have settled for too many field goals in the playoffs and regular season as Goff struggles with his reads down close to the end zone. Patriots put up 35 points in the first half against the Chargers and ended with 41 for the game. Patriots posted 31 regulation points at KC. They outgained the Chiefs and Chargers a combined 397 yards. New England also has their running backs healthy and they have performed well in the playoffs. Look for Brady to utilize screen plays to help slow down the pass rush. Patriots were able to move the ball and score 38 points on that Bears defense something the Rams couldn’t do. I will take the three headed monster of Michel, Burkhead and White over C.J. Anderson and a Todd Gurley less than 100%. Also, the Patriots red zone execution is better than the Rams.
