The Dog has to bounce back after a Dog Sh*t showing in Week 4. File this one under Need It AND Gotta Have It.
And after the Buccaneers put up 55 on them on their home turf, so do the Rams. Fortunately for the Rams, Seahawks don’t have the barrels of firepower that the Bucco’s do.
Seahawks, let’s face it. Haven’t beaten anyone “GOOD” yet. Wins over Bengals (garbage), Steelers (soon to be garbage), and Cardinals (not sure what they are). Couldn’t beat a Drew Brees-less Saints team at home either.
Thursday night game means short week. This lends itself to the offenses. Rams will go for 40 the second week in a row. This time, they won’t lose.
Don’t miss the picks. Follow me on twitter or reddit or BOTH!
The Rams have the best defensive player in the league in Aaron Donald and have given up 22 total combined points in their last two games.
On the other side The Bucs’ Jameis Winston has been sacked 10 times and thrown 4 picks.
The Dog isn’t thinking will the Rams win, he’s thinking, “By how much?”.
Jared goff isn’t as good as his contract says he should be. But, he has no shortage of weapons around him and a defense that doesn’t make the offense bear all of the weight.
Aside from the conservative win (with a wopping 189 passing yards) against the Panthers, we know Jameis is an inconsistent QB play. Pair that up with the shaky backfield for The Bucs (Barber, Peyton, Shared, What is it?) the Rams can cover this one at home.
With Jameis’ inconsistent QB play and a shaky backfield for the bucs, the rams can cover this one at home.
Whenever I see Cleveland, I think Dawg Pound and I have to check myself.
“Am I about to bet with my heart or my head here?”
The Dog took a big hit last week picking the Saints over the Rams. The game that looked like 100 points on paper turned out to be a dud.
Yes, Brees went down which definitely had an impact but it’s time to forget that one.
It’s Correction course time in Week 3.
Rams are 14-3 on the road since 2017 and 8-2 against the spread going back to last year.
It’s still not clear if McVay and crew are clicking on offense after this game. Everything changed when Brees went down, but we saw last year that this Rams scheme can be effective.
Cleveland is still a question mark for me. The win against the Jets got This Dog very excited about what the Browns might be capable of. But, even my pea-brain knows not to make any conclusions based on chewing up a decimated Jets team.
Cleveland is at home, on a short week. The days matter when McVay is in the lab. Locked. Put this one in the Dog Pound.
Dog Pound 2019 Record: 4-1 ✅

Certainly the stakes aren’t what they were in last year’s oh-so-controversial NFC Championship bout, but the Saints Come Marching In to L.A with an early season shot at redemption.
Coming off an emotional last drive comeback against a relatively highly touted Texans team, Who Dey Saints have to and will shore up and solidify on the defensive side of the ball to keep the Rams O in check.
Rams did enough to get the W in week 1, but, they also have a lot of miles and time zones behind them in just 7 days. Don’t forget, Drew Brees started his career in the SoCal sun. We’ve all had those moments where we feel 25 again; Drew gets his today.
That’s right, The Dog doesn’t see the Rams getting it done at home this week.
The Dog likes the Saints straight up in this one
This OVER is a sucker bet.
Dog Pro Tip: a sucker bet is only a sucker bet if you don’t take it.
I dropped my phone in the lake. Can you put this bet in for me?
