Rams have lost seven straight games

The Los Angeles Rams ended the 2016 season in the midst of an 0-7 SU and ATS slump. The Rams will try to snap that losing streak this Sunday at home against the Indianapolis Colts.

Shark Bites
  • The Colts are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games against the Rams.
  • The Rams are 2-8 SU in their last 10 games in Week 1.
  • The total has gone UNDER in eight of the Colts’ last 11 games on the West Coast.

Coming off a season in which the team ranked dead last in total offense with 262.7 yards per game and scoring with 14 points per game, the offense has nowhere to go but up. Todd Gurley followed up a promising rookie campaign in 2015 with a dismal year in 2016, averaging just 3.2 yards per carry and finding the end zone only six times. Under new head coach Sean McVay, quarterback Jared Goff will be given more time and space to develop than he was under Jeff Fisher.

Andrew Luck’s nagging shoulder injury will keep Indianapolis’s franchise quarterback out of Sunday’s season opener. Scott Tolzien will start in his place, carrying with him an 0-3 SU and ATS record as a starter in two career starts with Green Bay and one with Indianapolis. The Colts are just 1-5 ATS in their last six games in the month of September.
