Rams vs Washington pick against the spread and predictions
The Rams look to get back on track after a shaky game against the New York Giants. The Rams were supposed to crush the Giants but had to hold on to win. This week they are once again expected to dominate a team from the NFC East. This may make NFL pickers nervous to make a Rams vs Washington pick against the spread.
Changes under center
The Washington Football team has already made some major changes for this game that hopefully will help this franchise win again. Washington head coach Ron Rivera made a change at the quarterback position benching Dwayne Haskins in favor of Kyle Allen.
Haskins cannot read defenses right now. He needs to see more. Good move by the Washington Football Team. https://t.co/wuhWqyYCPU

Although the change faced some scrutiny, it was needed since Washington ranks 30th in the NFL in scoring and yards per play. Allen is familiar with the system that Rivera has in place at Washington, playing under Rivera for two years in Carolina. Allen can have success against a Tams team that ranks in the top 8 of the passing yards allowed for this season.
NFL Opening Odds
The Rams beat the Giants, but they did not look stellar on offense. The win shows that the defense can still carry this team if needed. They will travel to the East Coast for the third time this season for another early kickoff. The poor performance and the travel play a factor in the movement of the point spread. The Rams opened as (-9.5) favorites but after the change at quarterback, the line has fallen to Rams (-7.5).
Allen may be an improvement on offense, but he is a turnover machine. Allen threw 16 interceptions and fumbled the ball 13 times in 12 starts last season. The Rams have success laying points and on the road.
Rams are road warriors
LA is 9-3 ATS in their last 12 road games, including 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as a road favorite. The Rams are also 12-5-1 ATS in their last 18 games as a favorite. The Rams love playing on the East coast as they are 5-0 since 2017 and they have put up at least 30 points in all of those games. In those games, they’ve outscored opponents 185-89 and only one of those games was within 10 points.
Washington is 2-8 ATS in the last 10 games at home and they are going to be blown out against the Rams.
