Kyler Murray averaged 270.5 passing yards per game this season. He’s gone Over this number in eight of 14 games this season. Murray threw for 383 and 268 yards in two meetings with the Rams this season.
Los Angeles gave up 4,435 passing yards this year, which ranked 24th in the NFL. We can project Murray to be forced to air it out in this one, as he’ll need to keep pace with the high-octane Rams offense.

The Cardinals have an implied total of 23 points, but they combined for 60 points in two games against the Rams. They have the offensive weapons to overcome Aaron Donald and a tough Rams defense.
The total of 256.5 passing yards is not a high bar for Murray, so we’ll roll with the Over in this spot, especially because the Cardinals have a legitimate at pulling off the upset.
Anytime Touchdown (+155) @ BetRivers
Wager: 0.5 unit to win 0.775 units
Murray is one of the best rushing quarterbacks in football, finishing with 423 yards on the ground this season, including five rushing touchdowns.
Murray has now rushed for 16 touchdowns in his last two seasons. He’s a major weapon in the red zone, which makes this prop a viable play at nice value with +155 odds.
In two matchups against the Rams this year, Murray rushed for 100 yards on 13 carries. There’s a decent chance that he scores a touchdown here, so we’ll sprinkle a bit for the value.
