NFL Best Bets for Week 12
21st 2014 - Old Man Winner

Stl +5 @ SD


That's what the Rams schedule has been over the last two months. Their last eight games have been against three division leaders, and all of those games were against teams with a winning record. Those eight opponents sport a combined record of 55-26, a 68% winning percentage. Prior to any season starting, usually the team with the toughest schedule in the league plays teams totaling a 55% winning percentage. I guess the take away for me here is that these guys have not only hung tough against some incredibly good teams, they have actually won 3 of their last five beating Denver, San Francisco, and Seattle (three of the last four Super Bowl contenders).

Now they travel to San Diego, to play another team with a winning record, but not at all the competition that they have seen recently. The Chargers are struggling. Their offensive line is weak and hobbled, their receiving core is average at best, and their run game has only averaged a meek 85 yds. a game. The Rams defense is coming into its own and getting used to blitzing on on a high percentage of snaps. They have netted 13 sacks in their last 3 games. During that same stretch, Phillip Rivers has thrown 5 picks. That is a collision course just waiting to happen.

The other side of the ball doesn't seem to matter as much. As long as the Rams don't turn the ball over or kill themselves with stupid penalties, they should put up an average number of points. Sean Hill throws a nice deep ball and seems to have found a connection with Kenny Britt. Tre Mason is more talented than most think, he's just run into some high quality defenses. He should produce some nice numbers in this one.

Also, special teams, usually forgotten in the analysis, always goes to Jeff Fisher and crew.

This will be one of the few games not threatened by weather.

I like the Rams in a low scoring affair.
