Beat the NFL Odds (Quick pick): St Louis Rams -1 over Baltimore Ravens
This quick pick will be short and sweet so you can be on your way…
Week 4 of the preseason is where you see only backups, really. The starters may play a series or two to stay fresh, but teams will not risk injuries a week before the real football starts. Jeff Fisher doesn’t subscribe to this theory, however.
Fisher uses the final game of the preseason as the “dress rehearsal” game. He will be playing his starters into the 2nd half of the game. The Ravens are a veteran team with their main goal being the Super Bowl. They will not risk injuries to any of their veterans in this game and will be playing out the string here, hoping to get out without any injuries. This is a big advantage for the Rams, and for us. The line should be much higher than a -1 and we will take advantage of this.
