Rams vs. Cardinals Point Total: Over 49.5 Points

OddsShopper has an expected point total of 49.8 points, and some books are offering 50 points. These teams scored 57 and 53 points in the two games they played. The expected win rate of over 49.5 points is 51%. If taking the 50 points, it would be slightly below 50%, around 48-49%.

Rams Moneyline

OddsShopper gives the Rams a 51% chance of winning the game. Most of the sportsbooks are giving -180 to -190, which is between 64.3% and 65.5%. From an expected ROI standpoint, this is one of the worst bets of the night. From an expected win percentage standpoint, it is one of the better ones.

Cardinals Moneyline

The Cardinals moneyline is one of the best bets. OddsShopper gives them a 49% chance of winning the game, and the sportsbooks are offering between +150 (40%) and +160 (38.5%). This is the best game line bet from an ROI perspective and one worth betting standalone or part of a parlay.

Parlay Combinations

Bettors can really only parlay moneylines and point totals or point spreads and point totals. Here are the best combinations from an odds perspective. Pretty much every sportsbook is offering +3.5 at -110 odds for Arizona and between +150 and +160 for the Arizona moneyline. Most sportsbooks are offering the point total at 50, and it is going to have to be a close call as to whether to go under the 50 since the expected is 49.8, or over the 50 because 49.8 rounds up to 50 and these teams have gone over 50 twice.

1) Arizona Cardinals +3.5 and Over 49.5 Points (+267, FanDuel Sportsbook)

2) Arizona Cardinals Moneyline +160 and Over 49.5 Points (+396, BetMGM Sportsbook)

3) Rams Moneyline and Over 49.5 Points (+196, FanDuel Sportsbook)
