New Orleans Saints at Los Angeles Rams Preview & Picks

Los Angeles are tipped to cover in a Thursday Night Football victory.

The Rams are enjoying their best run of the season and have covered repeatedly in recent weeks.

They also have a tremendous spread record when playing on short weeks under head coach Sean McVay.

  • Los Angeles Rams are 4-1 in their last 5 games
  • Los Angeles Rams are 4-0-0 ATS in their last 4 games
  • Los Angeles Rams are 5-2 in games played on a short week under Sean McVay
  • The Over has cashed in 3 of Los Angeles’ last 4 games

Head To Head

  • Los Angeles Rams lead the all-time series 43-35
  • New Orleans Saints won 27-20 when the two teams last met in November 2022

New Orleans Saints Form

New Orleans have won back-to-back games to improve to 7-7 and remain locked with Tampa Bay in the race to win the NFC South.

The Saints’ playoff hopes suffered a setback in November when they failed to build on a 24-17 victory over Chicago.

They lost 27-19 at Minnesota before the bye week, and when they returned to action they suffered a disappointing division defeat to Atlanta, 24-15.

New Orleans’ skid then reached three games with a 33-28 loss to Detroit, but they have managed to get back on track in recent weeks.

The Saints stopped the rot with a dominant 28-6 win over division rivals Carolina, and they backed it up last Sunday with a 24-6 victory over the New York Giants.

Los Angeles Rams Form

Los Angeles have won four of their last five games to reach 7-7 and stay in the race for a Wildcard berth.

The Rams’ season appeared to be all but over when they went into the bye week on the back of a 20-3 defeat at Green Bay.

That loss – their third straight – left them with a 3-6 record and in desperate need of some wins when they returned to action.

Los Angeles have got those wins, following up a 17-16 win against Seattle with a 37-14 victory at Arizona and a 36-19 success against Cleveland.

The Rams’ streak was ended by a 37-31 overtime loss in Baltimore, but they hit back immediately with a 28-20 win over Washington last weekend.

Verdict

Short weeks have not been an issue for Los Angeles during the Sean McVay era.

Momentum is on their side too, so we expect the Rams to win and cover as they boost their bid for a Wildcard berth.
