Week 17 features the NFC No. 3-seeded Los Angeles Rams headed cross-country to play the AFC playoff-desperate Baltimore Ravens, who have dealt with a myriad of injuries this season.
The Rams are coming off a hard-fought 30-23 road victory in Minnesota to clinch a playoff berth and advance to an 11-4 record.
The Ravens on the other hand gave up 41 points in a blowout loss to Cincinnati, continuing a four-game losing streak.

Rams vs. Ravens Prop Bets: NFL Week 17 Prop Betting Picks
Total Rams Punts UNDER 4.5 (-170) at Caesars
Wager: 1 Unit
It’s hard to predict what we will see out of the Baltimore Ravens considering they have such a laundry list of injuries. Will they even have Lamar Jackson or Tyler Huntley back? Either way, I’ll stick to what I know. Johnny Hekker has punted less than four times a game in each game, during this four-game winning streak.
The Ravens haven’t exactly been a shutdown defense and it’s not exactly a shock considering they, again, have a myriad of injuries they are dealing with. This one could get ugly, I’m not saying it 100 percent does, but I don’t see the Rams punting more than four times in this one. Take the under on Hekker.
Rams 1st Half Spread -2.5 (-110) at Caesars
Wager: 1 Unit
This is a little lower than I expected to see. Look, I’m sorry Ravens fans but I don’t think they have control of this one at any point during the game. Again, not to say it’s a complete laugher but that doesn’t mean they will necessarily lead either. I’ll take the Rams -2.5 spread here going into the half. That’s been a staple for Sean McVay‘s Rams teams since they are 45-0 when leading at halftime under McVay.
All you need here to cover this is a field goal. The Rams with Sony Michel and the potential of Cam Akers returning five months off tearing his Achilles, will likely continue running the ball. With that, I expect the Rams to control possession of the football and eat enough clock to at the very least end up leading by a field goal at halftime.
Double Result: Rams/Rams (+101) at Caesars
Wager: 1 Unit
As I mentioned, I expect the Rams to win the first half spread. To add to that I think they control the game on the way to a 31-21 road win in Baltimore, which gets you this double result bet. The Rams are the better team and the healthier team. The Rams in their wins normally win the double result and since I have them winning by 10, I think they have a pretty good chance of covering this bet.
Rams Total Points OVER 25.5 (-105) at Caesars
Wager: 1.25 Units
I initially was going to go with the winning margin of 7-12 points here, but I think this is a safer bet. The Rams average 27.6 points per game which is good for sixth in the league. Baltimore is 20th in the league in scoring defense as they give up 23.7 per game. The last three games though, Baltimore has given up 32 a game. I don’t see a depleted defense stifling the Rams enough to stop them from scoring at least 26 to win this bet.
