After missing the postseason for the first time under head coach Sean McVay in 2019-2020, the Los Angeles Rams rebounded with a 10-6 win last season. The Rams defeated Seattle on the road in the Wild Card Round but fell short to Green Bay the following week.
Both defensive tackle Aaron Donald and corner Jalen Ramsey were named to the NFL First-team All-Pro team. Donald recorded 13.5 sacks, and Ramsey picked up where he left off in Jacksonville as one of the best lockdown defensive backs in the game.
If you bet on Los Angeles last season, the Rams went 9-7 against the spread last season. When it came to the over/under, they only covered the over four times.
Even with a pretty successful season in 2020-2021, that wasn’t good enough for the former NFC champs as they upgraded at QB. The Rams made a blockbuster trade in March, trading Jared Goff, two first-round picks, and a second rounder for gunslinger Matt Stafford.
Stafford will have really good weapons at his disposal, starting with slot receiver Cooper Kupp, plus Robert Woods and free-agent signing DeSean Jackson flanked on the outside.
Los Angeles also re-signed some key free agents, bringing back four-time Pro Bowl left tackle Andrew Whitworth and edge rusher Leonard Floyd.
Former Rams that agreed to deals elsewhere include defensive tackle Michael Brockers, safety John Johnson, corner Troy Hill, and tight end Gerald Everett.
Action 247 Sportsbook has the Rams over/under for wins this season set at 10.5. Los Angeles is favored to win the NFC West at +185 and are +1400 to win Super Bowl 56. The only teams in the NFC that have better odds to hoist the Lombardi Trophy this season are the Buccaneers and Packers.
