Las Vegas Raiders


Los Angeles Rams


Pick via FOX Sports NFL Analyst Geoff Schwartz:

The red-hot Las Vegas Raiders travel to take on the depleted Los Angeles Rams squad, losers of six straight games. The Rams are without their two best offensive players, quarterback Matthew Stafford and receiver Cooper Kupp; their offensive line has been a rotating cast of members; and on defense, the Rams are most likely without superstar Aaron Donald

However, the Rams have not stopped playing hard and managed to cover in their last two games. I lean towards the Rams covering again, but I have a play I will wager on now.

I’m taking a prop bet: Davante Adams Over 88.5 receiving yards at FOX Bet. 

The Raiders see the most two-high safety looks on first and second down, and as a result, they’ve been rushing the ball with wild success in these situations. Fortunately for them, the Rams rarely play with two-high safeties. They lead the NFL in cover three, with three defenders deep and four underneath. This is a poor coverage to run the ball against, with one less safety in the middle of the field. So I’d expect Adams to be the main target of the offense all game long. 

Adams has four 100-yard-plus receiving games over the Raiders’ last five games. Those four games are against teams that primarily play with a single-high safety. 

It’s simple, the Rams will play with a single-high safety, and when the Raiders see this, they will throw. Adams will be one-on-one without safety help. I love Adams in these types of situations. 

PICK: Adams Over 88.5 receiving yards (-120 at FOX Bet)
