The Los Angeles Rams really can’t afford to lose another game. Should they drop this primetime tilt with the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football, their odds to make the playoffs drop from 25% to 16% per FiveThirtyEight.
With Seattle and San Francisco in the division and the Minnesota Vikings keeping pace with the Green Bay Packers in the NFC North, a division title looks like the only route to the postseason for Los Angeles.
Even with a win tonight, Sean McVay’s team would only have a 3% chance at ultimately winning the NFC West.
The outlook is certainly bleak for the Rams and, I guess, their fans? I’d like to see how many residents of the greater Los Angeles area actually know how many games this team has won. This team could relocate again, and I don’t think they’d know.
Which is exactly why they needed two teams to disregard. Great work, Mr. Spanos.
This isn’t about my thoughts on the Los Angeles fanbase, though. This is about how I’m going to make you money. I already locked the under on Friday as my Play of the Day, so you’ll actually get three bets to choose from.
