Looking at Rams’ odds to make playoffs, win NFC West

The Rams Wire

The Los Angeles Rams have made the playoffs in four of the last five years, with 2020 being the only exception. They’ve won the division three times in Sean McVay’s tenure, including last season en route to their Super Bowl victory.

Looking ahead to next season, the Rams are a good bet to make the postseason again. They’re also the favorites to win the division for the second straight year.

According to Tipico Sportsbook, the Rams are +140 to win the NFC West. The 49ers are second at +180, the Cardinals are third (+300) and the Seahawks are extreme longshots at +1200. At +140, the Rams have an implied probability of 41.67% to win the division. A $100 wager on LA to win the division would return a profit of $140.

As for simply making the playoffs, the Rams aren’t complete locks, but they’re close. They are -290 to make the playoffs and +230 to miss. Their -290 odds has an implied probability of 74.36%, so the oddsmakers certainly expect them to reach the postseason for the sixth time since 2017.

The Rams have the second-best odds to win the NFC and represent the conference in the Super Bowl, sitting at +425. Only the Buccaneers (+330) have better odds to win the conference, only after Tom Brady came out of retirement.
