The Rams and the DTR Sportsbook had another good week. The Rams looked good against the Browns and the picks looked good as well.

Overall it was a good week for the Sportsbook, hitting on most of their picks and the other ones being in play if teased. We’re trying to include a few more “fun” bets – like the 1st quarter over bet in Thursday night football that hit. Please don’t forget the value in teasing! The payouts are lower for sure but the chances to hit your bigger bets increase. Often times I’ll bet the same paraly twice, one as a parlay once as a teaser.
Here are your picks of the week!
Rams pick of the Week: Rams vs. Bucs – First Quarter (3-way bet) moneyline (-148): The Rams are big favorites to win this game, and I fully expect them too, but instead of giving you the game moneyline (-420), we wanted to make it a little interested. The Rams should lead this game the entire time and taking a (-148) bet for the first quarter is much better. *Note – 3-way bet means a “tie” is an available betting option.*
Thursday Night Pick of the Week: Eagles at Packers – Miles Sanders to Score (+200). Miles Sanders is coming into his own and has improved his play each week. The Eagles clearly like him and tonight looks to be a very competitive game. Sanders fumbled twice last week and is looking for redemption. Look for Sanders to score his first NFL touchdown tonight in a game that the Eagles need to win.
AFC Pick of the Week: Browns at Ravens: First Quarter -0.5pt (-117). The AFC North continues to have fun games with the Browns heading south to Baltimore to face the red hot Ravens. The first quarter spread of this game is +/- 0.5 pt. I like the Ravens to lead by at least one point after the first quarter, I see this being a higher scoring game the Ravens should win. Ravens moneyline bet (-295) is a good bet as well, but we wanted to give you a more interesting play for this game.
NFC Pick of the Week: Vikings at Bears – OVER 38.5 (-115): At 38 points the Vikings/Bears over/under is one of the lowest we’ve seen so far. Both of these teams are good and looking to win this rivalry game. These offenses are starting to click and I see this game hitting the low over in one of the better matchups for the weekend.
Monday Night Pick of the Week: Bengals at Steelers UNDER 44 points (-110): This game may be better than last week’s game but still leaves a lot to be desired. Both teams have hardly cracked 20 points this season and I see that holding true on Monday. Between the injuries in Pittsburgh and the team starting to come together in Ciniccantii this is likely to be a hard-fought low scoring game. You can also pump the number up in a teaser as well.
