Los Angeles Rams (@1.66) vs Carolina Panthers (@2.25)

Our Prediction:

Los Angeles Rams will win

Los Angeles Rams – Carolina Panthers Match Prediction | 21-08-2019

They finished the regular season with a 13-3 record, took the NFC West division and won the NFC title game. One of their main issues heading to the playoffs was Todd Gurleys problematic knee. But make no mistake, this team is a very dangerous squad with a potent offense and a very talented defense. The departure on Ndamukong Suh leaves a hole in the front seven. They played in the Super Bowl but unfortunately, they came up short against an all-time great New England Patriots team led by Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. But a defense that will feature Aaron Donald is going to be a very formidable one. The Los Angeles Rams had a very successful 2019 campaign. Anderson is gone and although they got the most explosive ball-carrier in the draft in Darrell Henderson, he is still an unproven commodity in the big mans league. Jared Goff had a great year and if he can do it all over again, they might just get back to where they were and finish the unfinished business. Gurleys health will be the key to their success because C.J.

The good news for the Panthers pass rush is that theyll get to face a Rams O-line which has been simply wretched this season. The Panthers have already been very good against the run (they were No. 6 per DVOA heading into Week 8), and should be able to put Case Keenum in a considerable amount of pressure when the Rams are inevitably forced to throw.

However, the Rams averaged 30.84 points per game last season while the Panthers scored 23.50 points per outing. The under is 6-1 in Los Angeles last seven games away from home. These teams combined to score 38.3 points per game in their last 10 meetings and 32.67 points per game in their previous three encounters. While their previous meetings say otherwise, I think that the potent Rams offense vs a healthy Cam Newton can produce a high scoring game on opening week. The over is 9-2 in the Panthers last 11 games against NFC West Division teams but the under is 6-1 in Carolinas last seven Week 1 game.

Back in LA, and back in a playoff hunt. But now the Rams are in trouble missing the playoffs in a terrible division. It looked like a magical season was in store for the Rams through four games. The Rams were 3-1 through the first four games of the season, but have lost three straight to the Buffalo Bills, Detroit Lions, and New York Giants.

Other than those two wins, the Panthers have looked awful all year, with losses to Denver, Minnesota, Atlanta, Tampa Bay, and New Orleans. Actually, its only Carolinas second win on the season, the first coming in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers. The Panthers are coming off their best win of the season with a 30-20 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Carolina needs to string together a series of wins if it wants to make the playoffs this year.

They were 6-2 and looking every bit a playoff contender during the first half of the season. The Carolina Panthers had a Dr. Hyde 2018-19 season. But they sputtered to the finish with a 1-7 record in the second half of the year with their win coming in Week 17 against a New Orleans Saints team that was already resting its starters for the playoffs. Thomas Davis is also gone and that puts pressure on Shaq Thompson to do more at linebacker. Safety Mike Adams was no longer in his prime but the Panthers didnt fill the void he left in the draft or in free agency. If he does stay healthy, he and running back Christian McCaffrey could be dynamic duo this season. They added Bruce Irvin in free agency and drafted Athletic EDGE Brian Burns from Florida State. Cam Newton is expected to return 100% but can he stay healthy? Carolina trimmed down their edge rushers and said goodbye to Julius Peppers. Jekyll and Mr.

Carolina is 1-5 SU in their last six games against an opponent from the NFC Conference but finished the 2018-19 season with a 1-7 SU record. Los Angeles is 2-5 SU in their last seven games against teams from the NFC South Division, 1-6 SU in their last seven games against the Panthers but 5-0 SU in their last five September games.

Of course, the Los Angeles Rams won the NFC last year for the first time since 2001 but came up short to New England in the ugliest offensive Super Bowl ever with a final score of 3 13. Considered as one of the most important matchups, Rams at Panthers featuring two former No. 1 overall picks in L.A. quarterback Jared Goff and Carolina counterpart Cam Newton.
