Los Angeles has one of the NFL’s top offenses, while Dallas owns one of the league’s best defenses. The Rams offense is a balanced attack with Jared Goff under center, Todd Gurley II at running back and Robert Brooks the top receiver. The three will give the Cowboys defense more than enough to handle, while the Rams defense led by Aaron Donald will control the Cowboys offense enough to win and cover. Final Score Prediction, Los Angeles Rams win and cover ATS 30-21.
