Pittsburgh Steelers at Los Angeles Rams Betting Pick

This Sunday, the Pittsburgh Steelers will face off against the Los Angeles Rams at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood.

The Steelers currently hold a season record of 3-2, having just returned from their bye week. In their previous game, the Steelers defeated the Ravens and claimed the top spot in their division, now trailing by only half a game.

On the other side, the Rams have a season record of 3-3. They secured a victory in Week 6, defeating the Arizona Cardinals with a score of 26-9. The Los Angeles Rams are favorites in this game. The Rams come into the game -3 over the Steelers.

Steelers Looking to Just Win Games

Despite being outscored by 31 points this season, the Steelers boast a 3-2 record. Notably, the Steelers suffered significant losses at home to the 49ers and Texans but managed to secure wins by margins of 4, 5, and 7 points.

Unfortunately, Pittsburgh’s offense has struggled, ranking as the third-worst team in the league for scoring points, with an average of just 15.8 per game.

Both the Steelers’ running and passing games have been lackluster, with rankings of 27th for passing yards (187.8 per game) and 28th for rushing yards (80.4 per game). While Najee Harris and George Pickens pose threats, Harris has yet to score a rushing touchdown this season.

Pittsburgh faces a grueling schedule ahead with no breaks, including three consecutive home games against the Jaguars, Titans, and Packers.

Rams Beat up in the backfield

There is uncertainty surrounding the availability of Kyren Williams, the Rams’ starting running back, for this game. Williams took on the role following the trade of Cam Akers to Minnesota and has rushed for 456 yards and six touchdowns on 97 carries this season.

In case he is unable to play, Ronnie Rivers may step in, but he’s also dealing with an injury. The Los Angeles Rams are averaging 23 points per game, ranking 12th in the league.

The Rams have made additions to their running back depth with Royce Freeman, Myles Gaskin, and Darrell Henderson (who’s on the practice squad).

On a positive note, Cooper Kupp has returned and is performing exceptionally well, averaging 133 yards per game and having scored a touchdown this season. Puka Nacua is close to reaching 600 receiving yards this season.

After this game, the Rams have matchups against Dallas and Green Bay before their Week 10 bye. Their lack of a strong running game could present challenges.

Question Marks Lead to Rams Win at Home

The key issue for Pittsburgh is the lack of confidence in their offense’s ability to secure a win in this game. In contrast, the Rams are expected to score with Matthew Stafford and a capable receiving corps. Therefore, our betting pick is in favor of the Los Angeles Rams, with a -3 point spread over the Steelers.

Our final score prediction for this Week 7 matchup is the Los Angeles Rams winning 27-20 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. We are excited for this game, and hope you are too. Good luck with all your Week 7 betting in the National Football League, and we hope you enjoy the games!
