NFL Week 13 Picks: Green Bay Ends New England’s Run

Aaron Rodgers

Oakland Raiders at St. Louis Rams (-7)*

What has to happen for the 4-7 Rams to be favored by a touchdown worth of points? Probably beat the Seahawks, 49ers, and Broncos, and barely lose to the Chargers while the Rams’ opponent gathers its first win of the season. Well, when you put it that way, it makes sense.

St. Louis has played at a level much higher than its record of 4-7 would indicate, and it has faced possibly the toughest stretch of games by any team this season. Finally, when the Raiders come to town on Sunday, it will be after Oakland played its best game of the season en route to its first win. As they fall back to reality, the Rams will punish an opponent for the first time all season.

St. Louis wins by three touchdowns and covers easily.
