Rams vs Broncos Predictions & Best Bets

Last Updated: Aug 25, 2023

The Denver Broncos are having a miserable preseason. Not only have they lost both games they’ve played by just one point, they’ve also lost Jerry Jeudy to injury for an undetermined amount of time.

The Rams’ hasn’t gone very well, either, walking into two straight blowouts. Both teams will look to leave the buildup to the season with their heads held high, though.

Let’s break it all down in our Rams vs. Broncos preview and prediction.

Rams vs Broncos Predictions

Score Pick: Rams 27, Broncos 17

The Rams have scored exactly 17 points in each of their last two preseason games, and they’ve allowed a boatload of points in both. With that said, Matthew Stafford reportedly looked very good this week in joint practices and should help this offense out for at least a quarter.

L.A.’s offensive line also took a big step forward last week in a loss, and up against a Broncos team that just let Trey Lance cook them through the air, I think it should find some success. Losing Jeudy will also really hinder an already-slow offense.

When considering the Rams moneyline, we simply can’t discount the emotional toll that it will take on this team watching Jeudy get taken off in a joint practice. This offense is coming off of a poor season, and one of the biggest storylines for Denver all preseason long has been its lackluster offensive line play.

L.A. was able to record four sacks in two games, and Denver has now allowed four. Despite some poor results, the Rams have done a decent enough job on defense to warrant consideration here against an offense that has lost its way. Even with Jeudy in the game against Arizona, Russell Wilson managed just 93 yards on 13 attempts, and collectively in a loss to the Niners, this team had an 86.4 passer rating.

Over 36.5 (-110)

It pains me to do this considering the Broncos have scored just 37 points across two preseason games, but this Rams secondary simply has not had it in the last few weeks. On top of that, L.A. will also be dusting off Stafford, whose arm has looked incredible according to local reporters watching joint practices this week.

The Rams have been hampered by poor quarterback play from Stetson Bennett and Brett Rypien, but with Stafford buoying this offense for at least a quarter, I think both teams can get to the Over. If all else fails, Denver is coming off a game in which it put up 6.6 yards per carry on the ground, and the Rams have been letting teams run all over them.

Caesars Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 unit(s)

  • Over 36.5 (-110)
  • Rams +6 (-110)

For my money, this is the best way to play this game. While the temptation is there to throw the moneyline into this parlay to boost the odds, I do think if you’re going to bet on both teams scoring enough to hit the Over, then you have to have a little faith in the Rams offense.

Denver could not stop anything through the air last week, which should set up quite nicely for a Rams team that is going to come out wanting to throw the ball a ton. I know Bennett and Rypien haven’t looked amazing, but the Broncos’ secondary should help them out.
