Minnesota Vikings Visit the St. Louis Rams in Week 1 Battle – Betting Odds and Pick

With starting quarterback Sam Bradford already out for the season the St. Louis Rams could be hard-pressed to turn around a 2-11-1 ATS run in their last 14 season-opening games as they play host to the Minnesota Vikings in Week 1 odds action on Sunday.
