This week in the Rams vs Colts, Anthony Richardson will have to deal with elite defensive tackle Aaron Donald. However, Richardson’s mobility and size (6’4”, 244 pounds) mean that he will be a challenge for the Rams’ front seven. Richardson has 13 carries for 75 yards and three touchdowns so far this season, but it will be interesting to see if his Week 2 concussion makes him less likely to take contact while running.

Why should you bet on the Los Angeles Rams?
The Rams put on a show in Seattle to start the season, turning a 13-7 halftime deficit into a 30-13 win, dominating the second half. In Week 2, they pushed the San Francisco 49ers hard at home but still ended up on the wrong side of a 30-23 outcome. Quarterback Matthew Stafford had another solid game, throwing for 307 yards with a touchdown pass and an interception. Week 3 devolved into a defensive struggle with the Cincinnati Bengals, as the teams went into the locker room at halftime tied, 6-6. After the break, the Bengals edged out the Rams to win, 19-16, avenging their loss in Super Bowl LVI. Stafford only threw for 102 yards with an interception, and Tutu Atwell was the only other offensive star, leading the team with 22 rushing yards and leading receivers with a 37-yard reception. The Rams need some offense to show up this week, but wide receiver Cooper Kupp isn’t eligible to return until Week 5, and even then the likelihood is still hazy that he will come back then.
The Rams have not done well on the road lately, dropping eight of their last nine games away from SoFi Stadium. In their last eight games coming after a road loss (and they lost in Cincinnati last week), the Rams have lost the first half. However, they have scored the first touchdown in each of their last four contests coming after a road loss. If you like the Rams here, you see their defense frustrating a rookie quarterback and bottling up a running game that still doesn’t have Jonathan Taylor.

Why should you put your money on the Indianapolis Colts?
The Colts started 2023 with a tough loss against Jacksonville; they led, 21-17, after three quarters but gave up two unanswered touchdowns to lose by ten. Against Houston, the Colts led by 18 at the half and held on to win, 31-20. Their Week 3 win over the Ravens was their most impressive outing so far. Down 14-13 going into the fourth quarter, the Colts were able to scrap their way back to tie the game at 19-19 and force overtime, despite giving up a safety along the way. Backup quarterback Gardner Minshew threw for 227 yards with a touchdown pass, and Zack Moss ran the ball 30 times for 122 yards.
The Colts have not gotten much home field advantage lately, dropping six straight at Lucas Oil Stadium. They also have not done well as favorites, losing against the spread in eight of their last nine games when they were favored to win. However, they have scored the first touchdown in nine of their last 12 contests when they were favored to win after winning the previous week on the road.

Rams vs Colts Final Score and Prediction
The Rams took a major step back offensively in Cincinnati last week, and Indianapolis has a defense that can lock down opponents as well. Anthony Richardson showed a lot of confidence in Weeks 1 and 2, but it will be interesting to see how assertive he looks after returning from the concussion protocol. I like the Rams to win, 20-17.
