Week 8 NFL Lines And Odds: Saints Vs. Rams

The New Orleans Saints are coming to face the St. Louis Rams this Sunday, and the odds makers are pretty optimistic about their chances.

The St. Louis Rams are still looking for their first win of the season after losing their first six games, but there aren't many people that believe that it'll happen this week when the New Orleans Saints come to town. The Rams got pummeled by the Dallas Cowboys last week while the Saints posted a record-setting win against the Indianapolis Colts. There's no doubt who has the momentum.

And according to the odds provided by Odds Shark for SB Nation's NFL odds page, those advantages make the Saints 13-point favorites coming into Sunday's game against St. Louis. They're one of the biggest favorites of the week, matched only by the Baltimore Ravens as they face the struggling Arizona Cardinals.

For most Rams fans this shouldn't come as a shock. The Rams are, unfortunately, one of the worst teams in the league this season, while the Saints are one of the better teams in football. This kind of situation typically lends to odds like the ones provided for Sunday's game.
