Spread: LA -3.5
Team Totals: Rams (26.5), Cardinals (23.0)
WildCard Weekend comes to a close on Monday night when two NFC West division foes square off for a chance to advance to the Divisional Round next weekend. The Cardinals travel to LA for a rubber match against the Rams after the two split the regular season series. In these two clubs’ meetings earlier this year, the games totaled 57 and 53 points, hitting the over both times. If we project the game to hit the over for the third time, this game could produce fireworks from a DFS perspective.
