Rams vs Cowboys: With just eight teams remaining in the 2019 NFL Playoffs, the Divisional schedule features matchups that pit some of the league’s hottest teams against each other. That’s the case on Saturday night when the Dallas Cowboys travel to Los Angeles to take on the Rams for an 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff, the second game.
Event: NFL Football
Team: Rams vs Cowboys
Date: Saturday, January 12, 2019
Game Time: 8:15 p.m. ET
The Dallas Cowboys are 8-1 straight up and 6-2-1 against the spread over their last nine games. The Cowboys will try to keep their hot streak going with a big upset win over the Los Angeles Rams this Saturday night.
Los Angeles looked largely out-of-sync in a pair of back-to-back December losses to the Chicago Bears and Philadelphia Eagles that knocked the Rams out of the running for the top spot in the NFC.
The Rams used a pair of tune-up games against the Arizona Cardinals and the San Francisco 49ers to end the season on a 2-0 SU and ATS high note and to get the offense back on track in the process. Despite their dominant 13-3 SU campaign this season the Rams went just 7-7-2 ATS.
Saturday night’s total is set at 49.5 points at online sports betting sites. The OVER is 5-2 in Los Angeles’ last seven games at home.
On paper, the Rams may be the most talented team in the NFL. Los Angeles has the potential to win the Super Bowl if it plays its best football of the season in the playoffs. But if the Rams come out flat and don’t put together a full four-quarter effort, they could face a rude awakening against a team as hot as the Cowboys this Saturday.
The Cowboys have won eight of their last nine, while the Rams went 13-3 this season with a prolific offense and a disruptive defense led by Aaron Donald. Los Angeles is a seven-point favorite, unchanged from the opening line, with the total at 49.5 in the latest Cowboys vs. Rams odds.
