Los Angeles Rams 2022 Predictions
Key Stat: L.A. Rams look to defend their 2021 championship
- Los Angeles Rams went 12-5 during the 2021 regular season
- Matthew Stafford helped team win Super Bowl in first year with the team
- Rams lost stars in Von Miller and Robert Woods
The last team to repeat as Super Bowl champion was the New England Patriots back in the 2003-2004 seasons. That will be the Los Angeles Rams goal for the upcoming 2022 season. The Rams accomplished what not many teams have in the NFL. They won the Super Bowl last season, largely off the backs of superstars coming over from other franchises. Matthew Stafford left the Lions after 11 seasons to help lead the team to the championship. L.A. also added Von Miller, Odell Beckham Jr, and more to the team for a one year rental.
So what are the expectations this season? The Over/Under for wins is 10.5 for the upcoming season. They lost some key parts in Robert Woods at receiver, Von Miller on the D-line and Andrew Whitworth on the O-line. Odell Beckham Jr is also a free-agent recovering from injury and nobody is sure when he will be available this year. The Rams will have their hands full with the NFC West, having to face the Cardinals and 49ers twice, while also starting the season off with the Buffalo Bills, who are picked by many to be in the Super Bowl this upcoming year.
The offensive guru of this organization is head coach Sean McVay, and he will team up with Matthew Stafford and Cooper Kupp to form what should still be a dynamic offense. We think the Rams are still the class of the NFC West, so we are going Over 10.5 wins for L.A., predicting an 12-5 season and NFC West crown.
Key Stat: Rams offense should be at the top of the NFL
- Rams signed Allen Robinson from the Bears as a free-agent
- L.A. restrengthened their defense signing former Seahawk Bobby Wagner
- Rams keep trio of Stafford, Kupp, and McVay as leaders of offense
The second future bet we are looking at could go different ways for the defending champs. They are heavy favorites to win their division, but their isn’t much value in that bet. They could win the Super Bowl again, but seems like too long of odds considering how tough it is for teams to repeat. The futures bet we landed on is L.A Rams to be the #1 seed in the NFC playoffs for 2022. You can get great value up to +600, for a team that won the Super Bowl last year!
Again we think they should win their division, which means they will be right in the thick of the #1 seed. The defense is going to have to shore up with Bobby Wagner coming down from Seattle, and new pieces like Allen Robinson at wide receiver, will have to make a smooth transition. L.A. lost a lot of important pieces, but they also added some very good pieces on both offense and defense to even it out. We are liking the Rams to be the #1 seed in an NFC that we think will beat each other up a bit, as there is no clear frontrunner in our eyes.
