The Los Angeles Rams have a hard 2022 ahead of them. They are mostly the same. But Odell Beckham, Jr. and Von Miller are two big-name players absent from the squad. Kevin O’Connell and several coaches departed for the Vikings. The Los Angeles Rams’ future betting odds still expect them to be a top contender although not as the favorite. A brutal schedule could also slow them down.
The likes of Buffalo and Tampa Bay are ahead of Los Angeles on the board. But most of the team’s best players are still around. Matthew Stafford returns as a quarterback. Aaron Donald will still wreak havoc from the middle. And new stars in Allen Robinson II and Bobby Wagner join the team. With a little bit of re-tooling, the Rams should remain a powerhouse in the NFL.

Los Angeles Rams Future Betting Odds to Make the Playoffs
At 10.5 wins, the Rams have the same regular-season win totals as two of the previous three seasons. They went under that in 2019 (nine wins) and over it last season (12 wins). Under Sean McVay, the Rams have won 11 or more games in three of his five seasons as head coach. The public has a bullish approach to the Los Angeles Rams future betting odds even if the player totals are expected to decrease.
Stafford May Be in For a Tough Season
- Passing Yards: 4550.5
- Passing Touchdowns: 34.5
- Interceptions: 13.5
At his current player totals, Stafford is expected to have a “slower” 2022. It is tough to get even better than his first season as a Ram. He threw for 4,886 yards and 41 touchdowns (with 17 interceptions). Stafford also completed 67.2 percent of his passes and had a 102.9 passer rating. This was his best season statistically, since 2011 when he threw for over 5,000 yards with 41 TDs.
There are a few reasons why Stafford could regress. The Rams have new coaches on offense namely Liam Coen, who is replacing O’Connell as the team’s new offensive coordinator. This will be Stafford’s first year working with him as he coached in Kentucky during the 2021 season.
The Rams’ receiving group is also different. Beckham is out and so is Robert Woods. The offensive line also took some hits with the departures of Andrew Whitworth and Austin Corbett. Joe Noteboom showed flashes in the playoffs and if he’s the real deal, the Rams may have gotten better in this department.
And lastly, Stafford will have to go through a difficult schedule. He opens against Miller and the Buffalo Bills, then visits the Buccaneers, Saints, Chiefs, and Packers in the latter half of the schedule. On top of that, he’ll also play San Francisco and Arizona twice each. It would be a testament to his QB prowess if he can maintain the same stats against what will no doubt be a highly difficult row to hoe, and one that can change NFL future odds.
Reshuffled Rams Receivers Still Feature the Best
On paper, the Rams’ receivers got a bit worse. But upon closer inspection, both Beckham and Woods had ACL injuries. Robinson may have had a terrible 2021 but he finally has an All-Pro-caliber quarterback while Cooper Kupp and Tyler Higbee should remain reliable targets for Stafford.
- Receptions: 111.5 (Evo)
- Receiving Yards: 1300.5
- Receiving Touchdowns: 11.5 (-125o)
The reigning Offensive Player of the Year will have a tough time replicating his numbers, especially because he became the first receiver since 2005 to capture the receiving triple crown: receptions (145), receiving yards (1,947), and receiving touchdowns (16). But while a 1,300-yard season seems pedestrian given his lofty standards, that’s still a Pro Bowl-caliber line.
Stafford targeted Kupp a whopping 191 times last season: that’s over 11 times per game. Kupp averaged 114.5 receiving yards per game with a 75.9 percent catch percentage. His 10.2 receiving yards-per-target is also his best output (not counting his shortened 2018). Kupp should continue leading the receivers’ Los Angeles Rams’ stats even if he’s not breaking records.
Allen Robinson II
- Receptions: 71.5
- Receiving Yards: 850.5
- Receiving Touchdowns: 7.5 (Evo)
While bettors are bullish to most of the Los Angeles Rams future betting odds, they are indifferent to Robinson. In some cases, they are fading his touchdown totals. The 28-year-old has been a forgotten receiver because of poor quarterback play and injuries in 2021. But he could still be the same guy who put up 1,400 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns (league leader) with Blake freakin’ Bortles as his QB.
If Robinson is healthy, he should flourish under McVay’s offense and with Stafford throwing him the ball. We saw what Stafford did for Kupp. With defenses blanketing Kupp, Robinson could find himself with easier coverage. He could be due for another strong season and one where he destroys his player totals.
- Receptions: 53.5
- Receiving Yards: 550.5
- Receiving Touchdowns: 4.5 (Evo)
After his breakout season in 2019, Higbee has been an afterthought for the previous two seasons. In fact, he had an underwhelming 2021. Higbee’s 9.2 receiving yards per reception is his worst output since he started full-time for the Rams. Optimists will point to Higbee bouncing back this season and he could go over his modest totals. Stafford also targeted him several times in the red zone, making him an underrated touchdown threat.
On the negative side, Higbee is just the fourth or fifth receiving option. A healthy Cam Akers should be featured more on offense while Van Jefferson will be more involved as a receiver. Higbee will need to make the most of his limited opportunities.
Can Cam Akers Still Be “The Guy”?
- Rushing Yards: 950.5
- Rushing Touchdowns: 8.5 (Evo)
Akers was limited to just five games in 2021 and he was visibly rusty. In the playoffs, Akers rushed for 172 yards on 67 attempts for a paltry 2.6 rushing yards per attempt. He’s had a few months to shake off the rust and get himself back to shape so he could resemble his rookie season where he averaged 4.3 rushing yards per attempt.
With Sony Michel gone, Akers is the clear lead back of the Rams. Darrell Henderson and rookie Kyren Williams will give him competition. But Akers’ ability to be productive as both a runner and receiver makes him the clear choice of the three.
