New York Jets vs Los Angeles Rams (LAR -17.5, O/U 43.5)
Adam Gase and the Jets remain winless heading into their second straight West Coast game following a 40-3 beatdown at the hands of the Seahawks. Gase’s offensive genius has yet to show itself once again this season, while a proven offensive guru and talent-raiser in Sean McVay will await him on the opposite sideline.
The Rams sit atop the NFC West alongside Seattle at 9-4 and have a clear path to double-digit wins for the third time in McVay’s four seasons at the helm. The defense has been the driver of success in LA this year, however, leading the NFL with just 4.6 yards allowed per play.
It’s a clear mismatch on paper and on the field, leading sportsbooks to list the Rams as massive 17.5-point favorites at home. While our NFL model typically doesn’t find an edge on the favorite in a game with a three-score spread, this matchup provides an exception. Our model projects a final score of 32.9-11.0 in favor of the Rams, giving us a solid edge on the Rams at the current spread. Our model suggests a $78 wager on RAMS -17.5 for an average $100 bettor.
