NFL betting expert Albert Nguyen takes a look at the Los Angeles Rams vs. Arizona Cardinals NFC Wild Card game on Monday Night Football and gives his best bets to make for it here.

Los Angeles Rams vs. Arizona Cardinals Best Bets: Expect an Offensive Explosion for the Rams

The Cardinals were for the majority of the season, the number 1 team in the NFL. They had the front runner for MVP, the front runner for Coach of the Year, and were flying high. Then as with every team in every season, the war of attrition hits you smack dab in the face, and injuries to Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins really killed their momentum. I do believe they are a solid team but they are really missing that home run threat with Hopkins as well as running back Chase Edmunds out.

Before the loss to the 49ers in the last game of the regular season, the Rams were beginning to play much better. They had a 4 game winning streak and honestly gave that game to the Niners in week 18. With their defense playing much better in the second half of the year, I'm going to have a slight lean to Los Angeles in this AFC West battle.

Rams vs. Cardinals Best Bets

Cooper Kupp anytime TD (-150) (Bet $150 to Win $100)

Kupp is a monster and should be the offensive player of the year in the NFL. He is an excellent route runner and he can score off a home run play or at the 1-yard line. This type of versatility is huge for anytime TD prop bets as it gives the player many more options to score. I think he's going to have his customary 8+ catches, 100+ yards, 1 + touchdown in this game. The playoffs are when your superstars shine and Cooper Kupp is the Rams' best offensive player.

Rams Team Total Over 26.5 (-110) (Bet $110 to Win $100)

The organization has gone all in the last couple of years as this team is 100% in win-now mode. They mortgaged their future for big names in key positions, including the blockbuster trade for quarterback Matthew Stafford last offseason. These are the type of games the front office made these splashy moves for. It's a home game. It's a division rival. I expect the Rams to come out with a lot of energy and their offense with Coach McVay at the helm to score a lot of points in this one.
