Los Angeles Rams odds, season predictions and best NFL futures bets Guide 2023

Welcome to The Bet Club NFL Los Angeles Rams betting guide for 2023.

The Los Angeles Rams went all-in for a Super Bowl run in 2021, and it paid off with a championship. However, they are now dealing with the consequences of that approach. Head coach Sean McVay’s team faced injuries and salary-cap problems in the following season, resulting in a disappointing 5-12 record.

The question now is whether things will improve for the Rams, or if they will continue to struggle before making a turnaround. Let’s explore the odds and best bets for the Los Angeles Rams in the upcoming season.

Los Angeles Rams 2022 season recap

Coming off a Super Bowl triumph the year before, Los Angeles never showed any signs of being able to defend the title. The last time the Rams were over .500 was after Week 3, and the last time they were at .500 was after Week 6. Quarterback Matthew Stafford (concussion protocol) and receiver Cooper Kupp (ankle) played in only 9 games apiece. Not coincidentally, L.A. lost 9 of its last 11 contests to finish 5-12. That record would have given them the No. 6 overall pick in the NFL Draft, but the Rams owed it to the Lions in their trade for Stafford. Yes, that run to the Super Bowl is still costing them two years later. It was worth it, of course, but it’s not what Rams fans want to hear at this point in time.

Los Angeles Rams 2023 NFL season predictions

As mentioned, this is not a franchise that is on the rise. It got its ring, and now – by all indications – it will be on the way down, at least for a while. Obviously, there is some possibility for improvement, as Stafford and Kupp missed almost half of the 2022 campaign. If they can stay healthy in 2023, Los Angeles could be decent. If everything goes right, can this team be better than decent? There is always that chance when you have guys like Stafford, Kupp, and Aaron Donald on the roster… but, let’s be honest, it’s not a great chance. Here are a couple of my NFL predictions for the Los Angeles Rams this year.

Best bet: Matthew Stafford to lead the league in interceptions (+1500)

I kind of like the Rams staying under 6.5 wins at -115 odds, but in general, there isn’t a whole lot on the futures market to write home about. They aren’t good enough to warrant any kind of division, conference, or Super Bowl title play even at long odds. But at the same time, when there are 17 games on the schedule, you don’t have to be that good to reach the 7-win mark. As such, I’ll take a flier on the individual market and go with Stafford to lead the NFL in interceptions.

I can see Los Angeles playing from behind (perhaps even way behind) on plenty of occasions, and that naturally leads to lots of passes being thrown. Stafford has thrown 17 picks or more four times in his career, including in his otherwise outstanding season of 2021. He is past his prime at 35 years old, so if his volume of passes is as high as I expect, then the INTs should be plentiful.

Los Angeles Rams season record predictions: 6-11

If Los Angeles stays healthy, it definitely won’t be the worst team in the league. There are a fair amount of winnable games on the schedule, too, such as Arizona twice, Seattle at home, Washington at home, Cleveland at home, and Pittsburgh at home. Still, if I had to side with an over or under play on the Rams’ win total, it would be under 6.5. Let’s go with 6-11 (+500 odds) for a team that is a far cry from its Super Bowl-winning ways.
