NFL Odds - Rams vs. Panthers 2010 NFL Predictions & Vegas NFL Picks: In week eight of the NFL odds season, the Carolina Panthers (1-5) visit the St. Louis Rams (3-4) in an important week 8 NFL predictions contest for the young Rams looking to raise their record back to .500. Vegas odds makers have installed the Rams as -2(-110) point NFL picks favorites at home.
The Rams have improved dramatically on defense this NFL odds season, rising to the middle of the pack in the NFL in most defense categories. The St. Louis pass rush has 20 sacks, including 6.5 by James Hall. The defense only has forced 11 turnovers, though, and the team could use a few more big plays. On offense, the Rams have had few big plays, but have had steady input from rookie quarterback Sam Bradford, running back Steven Jackson, and wide receiver Danny Amendola. They did find a big-play combination in Bradford to fellow rookie Danario Alexander and the two could connect again this week.
The Panthers finally recorded their first NFL picks victory against the San Francisco 49ers last week, 23-20, as Matt More regained his starting quarterback job and threw for over 300 passing yards in the NFL predictions contest. Moore will have another chance at resurrecting the Panthers’ 31st ranked passing offense in today's week 8 NFL picks battle against the Rams. The running game, a strength a year with two 1,000-yard rushers, has also been a disappointment, ranking near the bottom of the league. The defense has prospered against the pass thsi NFL picks season but has had trouble defending the run and that could be a problem against Jackson.
The Rams should cover the Vegas odds and win this week 8 NFL picks contest, especially if they want to become more than respectable, but young teams seem to letdown in NFL picks match-ups like this one so take the Panthers and the points givin by the Vegas odds makers.
