7/2 Rams Seek Redemption In Big Easy

The Los Angeles Rams return to New Orleans on Sunday for the NFC Championship game and are looking to get rid of the bitter taste left by their regular season loss to the Saints (New Orleans 4/7, Rams 7/2 – Money Line).

The two top offenses in the conference faced off in Week Nine in the Superdome, with the home side coming out on top 45-35, a result which ultimately decided who got home advantage for the play-offs as they each finished 13-3 (Over 56.5 points 20/23 – Total Points).

After the game, Sean Payton and Rams cornerback Marcus Peters exchanged words, with Peters unhappy about being picked out by the Saints head coach as a weak spot in LA’s defence.

Peters is keen to keep his emotions in check this time as he seeks to help the Rams get back to the Super Bowl for the first time since 2001.

“Throughout all the other stuff that was behind it, me personally, I didn’t have an excellent game that game,” Peters told reporters. “So you look forward to those rematches.

“I’m going to be ready to play just as much as they’re going to be ready to play. We’re trying to play a game. We’re not trying to talk about no gumbo. We can talk about all that stuff afterwards.”

Peters will need to be at the top of his game to stop Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas, who set a franchise post-season record with 12 receptions and 171 receiving yards in last week’s win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Thomas is a key part of a New Orleans offense which averaged 31.5 points per game during the regular season while the defence, ranked second in the NFL, showed its qualities by keeping the Eagles scoreless for three quarters in the 21-14 win last Sunday.

The Rams defence might not be as highly ranked as the Saints but Payton has admitted he’s worried about the danger posed by Aaron Donald, who leads the league with 20.5 sacks this season.

On the other side of the ball, head coach Sean McVay came up with the perfect offensive game plan to down the Dallas Cowboys 30-22, rushing for 273 yards as they proved once again that the Rams can hurt you as badly on the ground as they can through the air.

Given the explosiveness of both offenses, with the Rams averaging 32.9 points per game, Betfred are offering 6/5 on both teams to score three or more touchdowns in their Pick Your Punt market.
