When we think about players who underperformed for the Los Angeles Rams in 2022, that list might begin with quarterback Matthew Stafford. Cooper Kupp’s injury woes didn’t help either. One player whose struggles went a bit under the radar, though, was Aaron Donald. He has been Defensive Player of the Year three times, but in 2022 he was anything but. He had career-worst marks in sacks (5) and tackles for loss (10). He had to miss six games to injury after only missing a pair of games over the last eight seasons combined. He could still be the best defender in league history, with nine Pro Bowl trips in nine seasons, seven All-Pro teams and more than a 100 career sacks. He had considered retiring after the Super Bowl title in 2021, but he decided he wants to chase that dream once again. Let’s look at the Rams’ NFL betting point spread in each regular-season game this season along with a couple primo picks.

Rams NFL Top Betting Games during the 2023 Season
Week 1: at Seattle Seahawks (+5.5)
The Seattle Seahawks have the attention of much of the sports betting community this season; it looks like books are convinced that Geno Smith is ready to be the real deal – and that the Seattle defense is ready for action. They might have their best secondary since the days of the Legion of Boom, so if Smith can lead the team on sustained scoring drives, the Seahawks might have the balance it takes.
But can they beat the Los Angeles Rams by almost a full touchdown? The Seahawks haven’t beaten the Rams that handily since December 2020, when they took a 20-9 verdict up in ashington. Before that, the Seahawks wouldn’t have covered that spread in this series since October 2017. Matthew Stafford has plenty of motivation to resurrect his game, and if Kupp can be healthy by the regular season, Stafford will have that weapon he needs. Rams to cover.
Week 4: at Dallas Cowboys (+8)
The Cowboys have assembled one of the best defensive rosters in all of football, and with Dan Quinn returning as DC, the Cowboys should have a stout unit. They tend to play well in the first third or so of the season, stacking up wins, before the rest of the league figures out their scheme and forces adjustments.
Dak Prescott led the NFL in interceptions despite missing four games due to injury. If Donald can disrupt Prescott, he should be able to force him into some hasty decisions that put the ball in the Rams’ hands. A five-or six-point line pushes me to take Dallas, but pushing this line over a touchdown makes me worry about the Cowboys’ tendency to fritter away leads. Los Angeles Rams to cover.
Week 15: vs Washington Commanders (-1)
The Rams are only one-point favorites against Washington at home? Yes, the Commanders’ defense has a solid reputation, but do we really think Sam Howell can keep up with Matthew Stafford in this game? Obviously, if the Rams come in 4-10, motivation is likely to slip, but these are both teams looking to reassert themselves in the NFC, but the Rams should have the tools to stop a rebuilding team at home, given the pieces that remain from their Super Bowl title. Los Angeles Rams to win and cover.
