The NFL closes out Week 11 with a huge inter-conference shown on Monday Night Football. The Los Angeles Rams host the Kansas City Chiefs in a matchup of 9-1 teams that could easily meet up in Super Bowl 53. Kickoff is set for 5:15 p.m. PT on ESPN. Joe Tessitore and Jason Witten will call the game from the booth, with Booger McFarland serving as an analyst from the field. Lisa Salters continues her duties as the sideline reporter.
The Rams are tied with the Saints for the best record in the NFC, but New Orleans has the head-to-head tiebreaker. The Chiefs lead the AFC, holding a game-and-a-half lead over the Steelers, plus the head-to-head tiebreaker. With the Chargers losing, the Chiefs firm grip on the AFC West only grows.
The Rams are a field goal favorite over the Chiefs, according to sportsbooks monitored by Odds Shark. The line has moved quite a bit this week after the league cancelled plans to play it on a neutral field. The line climbed as high as 3.5, but has settled at three for now. I’m taking the Rams, as I think they’re the better team due to their defensive upside. I think we see something like a 37-33 Rams victory. Bet the over on 63!
