The Los Angeles Rams (3-6), last in the NFC West, will face the New Orleans Saints (3-7) and last in the NFC South. The bottom two teams will battle it out against each other for a moment of salvation as their race to the playoffs seems distant for both teams now.
Los Angeles is on a three-game losing streak and will host the Saints at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday (November 20). The Saints will be missing one of the best receivers of all time, Michael Thomas. This is a tale of two champion teams having a parallel season.
Los Angeles Rams vs New Orleans Saints: Betting Odds
They are one of the lowest-scoring teams in the league, with 16.4 points per game, 29th in the league while conceding close to 22.2 ppg. Their team has hit a break as Copper Kupp will be missing 6-8 weeks. The wide receiver has been leading the scoring charts for Los Angeles, recording a total of 812 receiving yards with 6 TDs. An away trip without Copper could turn out to be dangerous.
The New Orleans Saints have struggled as well this season with only three wins and seven losses. They have a long list of injured players, some of them important and some not very important. All they can look to do is try and win at home against a weak Los Angeles team on Sunday.
