Odds/Point Spread: Denver Broncos -6, Total Odds: 37

The Rams’ defense showed many gaps and a lack of depth in the first two weeks of the preseason. Given that many believe the Broncos will keep up their strong ground game in front of their home fans, give me Denver to win and cover a six-point spread. The Broncos’ outstanding rush defense has forced the Rams to rely on Stetson Bennett’s arm. Bennett is still trying to get along with his new teammates, but relying only on the Rams’ receiving corps makes it tough to sustain the squad for a whole game. The Rams are 0-4 SU and ATS in their last four preseason games.

Los Angeles Rams vs. Denver Broncos Betting Trends

Los Angeles Rams vs. Denver Broncos: The Broncos were competitive in their first two games, but the same can’t be said for the Rams. Los Angeles has now lost their first two games by a combined score of 68-34, and it doesn’t get any easier when their defense has to chase around Russell Wilson. When these two teams met in December of 2022 last season, the Rams destroyed the Broncos 51-14. Wilson threw 3 picks in that game and only threw for 214 yards. Although it’s only preseason, look for Russ and company to get some revenge as they pick up their first win of the 2023 preseason.
