Rans Try for Second Win in Desert

St. Louis looks to make it two straight wins after their upset of the Saints at the expense of an Arizona team that is sputtering badly in Week 9 NFL odds action.

The teams have played 6 straight unders in a battle where the Rams have struggled to a 1-8 SU run past 9 vs the Cardinals. Arizona meanwhile is 0-6 SU and ATS in their past 6 games within the NFC West.

Totals bettors should be aware that the Cards have played OVER in 7 of their past 8 November home games. They blew a big lead in falling to Baltimore last week.

Arizona opened as 3.5 point favorites early in the week but the number was down to -1.5 with lots of betting volume on the Rams at shops such as Bovada and TopBet.
