Green Bay at St. Louis
Sunday 10/19 01:00 PM Eastern
4 units on St. Louis -3.5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64) RESULT: WIN
St. Louis may just be back. In their last two games, the Rams have outscored their opponents 73-13. This weekend’s game will go a long way towards confirming that they are really back. In those two games, WR Tory Holt has caught 23 balls for 294 yards, catapulting St. Louis to the top spot in passing offense in the league. Oh yeah, and did I mention that Green Bay is close to last in the league (30th) in passing defense? Expect another big day for the St. Louis offense. Brett Favre continues to throw ill-advised passes and has historically struggled in Domes where he has thrown more interceptions than touchdowns and has a record of just 11-19. I expect a road letdown by Green Bay after two strong yet draining performances. Home teams off shut-outs perform very well against the spread in their next game.
