Posted: Aug 4, 2021Last updated: Aug 4, 2021

The Los Angeles Rams will have a new-look offense in 2021 after trading former No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff to the Detroit Lions in exchange for quarterback Matthew Stafford in the offseason. The Rams are looking to reach the postseason for the fourth time in five years under head coach Sean McVay and are hoping that Stafford can help get them back to the Super Bowl this season. The Game Day is here to preview some of the best Rams prop bets for 2021.

Los Angeles went 10-6 in 2020, recording double-digit wins for the third time in four seasons. While Goff was the signal caller for all three of those campaigns, the Rams will try to eclipse that mark again with Stafford under center.

Stafford will join an offense that is loaded with talented skill players such as RB Darrell Henderson Jr., TE Tyler Higbee, and wideouts Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, and DeSean Jackson. However, they will be without promising second-year RB Cam Akers, who is likely out for the season after suffering a torn Achilles last month.

Defensively, Los Angeles boasted one of the NFL’s top units last year under Brandon Staley. While Staley departed after the season to become the head coach of the Los Angeles Chargers, the Rams still feature top-end personnel on that side of the ball in the form of Aaron Donald and others.

With the addition of Stafford, Los Angeles should be more aggressive in throwing the ball downfield and pack more punch on offense next season while remaining one of the league’s best defensive and well-coached teams. While they play in a tough division, they should be able to improve this year and notch at least 11 wins, especially with the schedule expanding to 17 games.


Rams Prop Bets 2021: Player Bet Picks

Matthew Stafford Under 4,600.5 Passing Yards (-112 )

Although it is evident that Stafford still has a lot to offer as an NFL quarterback, he has not thrown for over 4,600 passing yards in a season since 2013. He barely cleared 4,000 yards through the air last year and has fallen short of that benchmark in two of the past three seasons.

While Stafford is now surrounded by a slew of offensive talent, exceeding 4,600 passing yards would be a big jump for the 33-year-old after averaging 3,950 passing yards over the past seven seasons. An extra game on the schedule will help, but you should still take the under here.

Robert Woods Over 1,000.5 Receiving Yards (-112)

Despite playing every game and racking up 90 receptions last year, Woods fell short of 1,000 receiving yards (936) for the first time since 2017. His 10.4 yards per reception were a career-low, which corresponded to his 7.3 yards per target — his lowest mark since 2015.

Woods should see his numbers bounce back with Stafford under center, however, which will open up deeper looks and allow the offense to be more aggressive. The Rams will likely also pass more often with Stafford than they did with Goff, especially with Akers on the mend. With an extra game on the schedule as well, Woods should have no problem eclipsing 1,000 receiving yards for the third time in four years.
