Kyler Murray Over 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (-175)
After missing three games with an ankle injury, Murray returned last week against the Chicago Bears. He had two passing touchdowns on only 15 pass attempts, adding two more touchdowns on the ground. While he threw only 15 times last week, Murray averaged 32 pass attempts per game before suffering the ankle injury. Furthermore, he has at least two passing touchdowns in 67 percent of the games this season. Meanwhile, the Rams have held quarterbacks to only 1.2 passing touchdowns per game this year. However, they have given up at least two passing touchdowns in two of their past three games and five of the past nine games. In the matchup earlier this season, Murray had two passing touchdowns. He will throw at least two touchdowns in tonight’s game.
Cooper Kupp Over 90.5 Receiving Yards (-115)
There hasn’t been a better wide receiver in the NFL than Kupp this season. He leads the NFL with 1,366 receiving yards, 157 more yards than any other player entering Week 14. More importantly, Kupp has averaged 113.8 receiving yards per game this season, totaling 92 or more receiving yards in all but one game. Furthermore, Kupp has more games this season with over 120 receiving yards (five) than games with under 95 receiving yards (two). Since the Rams lost Robert Woods to a season-ending knee injury, Kupp has averaged 115.7 receiving yards per game. Meanwhile, the Cardinals have given up an average of 137.4 receiving yards per game to wide receiver this season. Kupp is more likely to have over 150 receiving yards tonight than under 91 receiving yards.
James Conner to Score an Anytime Touchdown (-120)
While the expectation is the Cardinals will active Chase Edmonds off injured reserve for tonight’s game, the latest reports state it will be a game-day decision. Even if Edmonds is activated for this game, Conner will likely handle most of the workload. Conner has 14 touchdowns this season, the third-most in the NFL. He has scored at least one touchdown in all but three games this season, including nine of the past 10 games. Furthermore, Conner has more games with two touchdowns this season (four) than games without a touchdown (three). Meanwhile, the Rams have given up 10 touchdowns to running backs this season. In the Week 4 matchup against the Rams, Conner had two touchdowns. Don’t be surprised if Conner scores the first touchdown tonight for the Cardinals.
Matthew Stafford Over 280.5 Passing Yards (-115)
Despite some recent rocky moments, Stafford has been on the best quarterbacks in the NFL this season. He is third in the league with 3,611 passing yards, averaging 300.9 passing yards per game. Stafford has thrown for at least 280 yards in 75 percent of the games this season, including five of the past six contests. He also has more games this season with over 300 passing yards (six) than games with under 285 passing yards (four). Meanwhile, the Cardinals gave up a season-high 326 passing yards to Jimmy Garoppolo a few weeks ago. More importantly, Stafford had 280 passing yards on only 26 pass competitions in the matchup earlier this season. Tonight, Stafford will have his seventh game with over 300 passing yards this season.
A.J. Green Over 43.5 Receiving Yards (-115)
The veteran wide receiver has played well this season. In his first year with the Cardinals, Green is second on the team with 552 receiving yards and third with three receiving touchdowns. He has averaged 50.2 receiving yards per game this season, totaling 44 or more receiving yards in 63.6 percent of the games. More importantly, Green has averaged 52.2 receiving yards per game this season with DeAndre Hopkins in the lineup. Green had at least 44 receiving yards in six of those nine games. Meanwhile, the Rams have allowed wide receivers to average 165.7 receiving yards per game this season. In the matchup earlier this year, Green had 67 receiving yards. With the Rams focused on Hopkins, expect Murray to target Green plenty in this matchup.
