The Los Angeles Rams will travel one state over to face the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday afternoon. Despite their overall 3-8 record, the Rams have a sterling mark against NFC West opponents, 3-1, this season, including a 26-9 win against the Cardinals back in Week 6. The Rams are favored by 2.5 points in this one.
The Cardinals are still chasing their third win of the season, but with Kyler Murray back in action for two games now, at least the offense is keeping things close. Arizona is just 1-6 against the Rams in seven games with Murray at quarterback, but they’ve got a real shot to steal this one away.
Here’s a look at some of the player props I like in this game.
Rams vs. Cardinals player prop bets
James Conner — Anytime touchdown scorer (-120)
With two games under his belt since returning from a stint on the injured reserve list, James Conner picked up right where he left off. He’s averaging 4.5 yards per carry in those two contests with 135 yards on 30 carries. But he hasn’t found the end zone, yet. I’m willing to bet that changes this week. Conner has scored in four of his last five games against the Rams, who sport the 21st ranked rushing defense.
Puka Nacua — OVER 59.6 receiving yards (-125)
This is a trickier one since Nacua’s production depends a little bit on what happens with Cooper Kupp. The later is trending toward playing, but he’s dealing with a low ankle sprain that’s left him hobbled. Nacua has recorded at least 70 yards in his last four games against NFC West opponents. I think he’ll be the Rams’ top option this week with Kupp still dealing with his injury.
Kyler Murray — Anytime touchdown scorer (+205)
Murray has scored a touchdown in three of his last four games, including both games this season since returning from his injury. He’s only done it once in seven career games against the Rams, but Los Angeles has been especially vulnerable to quarterbacks running the ball this season. The Rams have allowed four rushing scores to opposing signal callers, tied for the most in the NFL.
