It's the battle of bruised teams, as the New Orleans Saints host the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday in the SuperDome. Both teams have disappointed this year and have also battled the injury bug a lot, likely aiding in their struggles.
For those who enjoy betting on games, let's check out some of the best prop bets to keep an eye on in Saints vs. Rams.
Andy Dalton Prop Bet: Passing Yards OVER
This might seem odd considering how badly Dalton has looked over his past two starts but hear me out. The Rams secondary isn't the same dominant group it once was and has particularly struggled in road games this year.
According to Team Rankings, the Rams have surrendered an average of 268 yards through the air when they've played away from SoFi Stadium. Dalton has also been able to take advantage of garbage time. Furthermore, if New Orleans trails by multiple scores, Dalton will be forced to air out the pigskin more, thus gaining him more passing yards.
Alvin Kamara Prop Bet: Rushing Yards UNDER
While the Saints offense is better when the offense runs the ball with Kamara, they've been getting down by multiple scores and therefore, forced to go away from running the ball. Even if the Rams don't put up many points on the scoreboard, they've been decent against the run. Team Rankings has them as the fourth-best run defense when it comes to average rushing yards allowed per game. That doesn't bode well for Kamara.
Jarvis Landry Prop Bet: Receiving Yards UNDER
After his explosive outing in Week 1, Landry has been ineffective for the Saints. While the Rams secondary performs poorly outside of Los Angeles, Dalton has mostly been looking for Kamara, Chris Olave, and Juwan Johnson when he drops back to pass. I wouldn't expect too much out of Landry in this one.
