Editor’s note: NESN.com’s Mike Cole, Ricky Doyle and Andre Khatchaturian deliver their NFL picks every Thursday of the season, and here’s who they like in the Buffalo Bills-Los Angeles Rams Week 5 game, with the line from OddsShark.
Buffalo Bills (2-2) at (-2.5) Los Angeles Rams (3-1) 4:25 p.m.
Mike Rams. The Bills won their Super Bowl last week in New England, but now they have to travel across the country to take on an upstart, confident Rams team in 85-degree weather. The Rams’ offense will struggle against the Bills’ defense, but hey, a 3-0 win would be a cover.
Ricky: Rams. The Bills are 0-9 SU and 1-7-1 ATS in their last nine games coming off back-to-back wins. They’ll have a target on their backs after posting consecutive victories over the Cardinals and Patriots.
Andre: Rams. The Rams lead the league in hurries (26) and have forced 9 turnovers (T-2nd). The Bills are coming off emotional wins against the Cardinals and Patriots. Also, after being a top-10 team in yards/play last season, the Bills now rank 22nd. I smell a letdown for Buffalo.
