The Saints head to Los Angeles to take on the Rams on Thursday Night Football for Week 16. This is a huge game for the NFC playoffs, as both teams are 7-7 and vying for a wild card spot. The Rams currently have the last playoff spot, but they have no room for error moving forward. The Saints need to win this game or their playoff hopes will take a big hit.
The Rams are currently 4 point favorites with an over/under set at 46. The Saints have been good against the pass, pushing opposing offenses to run the ball. The Rams should be able to get a lead in this game, giving them more leeway to the run the ball, while the Saints will likely need to throw more.
Both teams have skilled offensive playmakers to forecast for prop bets. We’ll take a look at a few below.
Saints vs. Rams player prop bets
Kyren Williams — UNDER 3.5 receptions (+140)
I expect the Rams to run the ball and get a lead in this one, giving Williams fewer chances to work in the passing game. The Saints are also very good at stopping running backs from making receptions, as only two running backs have had over three receptions against them on the season.
Kyren Williams — OVER 19.5 (-125)
This is a big number, but Williams has hit it in three straight games and four out of his last five. All signs point toward the Rams leaning on the run over the pass in this matchup and Williams will be the key to the rushing game.
Matthew Stafford — UNDER 34.5 pass attempts (-110)
Stafford has hit this under in six of his last eight games and three of his last four wins. The Saints have allowed the over only three times this season. Stafford has also been more efficient of late and this game sets up as one he won’t need to pass a lot in the fourth quarter.
