Well, the Baltimore Ravens kept on rolling on Thursday night, as Lamar Jackson and company completely dismantled the New York Jets 42-21 to clinch the AFC North and further solidify their spot as one of the true Super Bowl contenders. With that being said, there is still plenty of football to be played in Week 15, as teams scratch and claw their way into the playoff picture. For my play of day, I am going with the surging Los Angeles Rams to cover against the struggling Dallas Cowboys. For all the insights and information on this matchup and more, continue reading my NFL best bets for a chance to cash in on the action.
Los Angeles Rams To COVER (-1) @ Dallas Cowboys (-105)
As mentioned above, the Los Angeles Rams have won two-straight games, as QB Jared Goff has finally found his footing in the explosive offense. On the flip side, the Cowboys have been the laughing stock of the NFL over the last few weeks, as they’ve lost three-straight and four of five heading into this weekend’s crucial matchup. Despite being under .500, Dallas is still in first place within the NFC East, while the Rams are battling for a wild card spot out West. Needless to say, both teams will be putting it all on the line this weekend.
From a betting perspective, all signs point in L.A.’s direction. First, the Los Angeles Rams are an NFL-best 9-4 against the spread in 2019. Second, they are 2-0 ATS and straight-up versus Dallas over the last three seasons. In addition, Dallas has really struggled rebounding from a loss this season, as they are just 2-4 ATS following a loss this season. Even further, the Cowboys are just 3-3 ATS at home this season, while the Los Angeles Rams are a remarkable 5-1 ATS on the road. The Rams are also an NFL-best 8-3 ATS as a favorite and 4-1 as a road favorite in 2019.
