Winless Rams Face Unbeaten Packers

St. Louis has been a good bet following a bye week, but their situation on the Week 6 NFL odds menu doesn't make them a good bet to win the game.

The winless Rams visit Lambeau to take on the unbeaten (5-0) Green Bay Packers. The Rams have covered four straight post-bye week games and they get a lot of points on the opening spread this week - 15.5 points at most shops tracked by OddsShark.

And it's a challenge for the Packers who are 11-3 ATS in their past 14 games as chalk to see if they can cover a huge number.

The Rams are 1-17 SU in 18 games as an underdog of 9 points or more.
