What to Know: The Rams put it all together last season and made it to the Super Bowl, where they eventually lost to the New England Patriots. Still, it was a successful season for a franchise that was among the worst teams in the league just three years ago.
Best Players: Running back Todd Gurley suffered some injuries last season, which curtailed his play, but when healthy he’s one of the best in the league at his position. Wide receivers Brandin Cooks, Robert Woods
, and Cooper Kupp might be the best trio of the receivers in the league. Quarterback Jared Goff needs to continue to improve and shake off a rough effort in the Super Bowl loss.
How to Bet: Carefully. The Rams are going to be favorites, and probably heavy favorites, most of the season. Another trend is to bet against the Super Bowl loser the first month of the season.
