Rams Super Bowl Odds Jump Following Von Miller Trade News
One of the best teams in the NFL got even better on Monday when the Los Angeles Rams traded for eight-time Pro Bowl linebacker Von Miller.
The shocking news primes the 7-1 Rams as serious contenders to win Super Bowl 56, as evidenced by the latest betting odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
Super Bowl Odds
Los Angeles already ranked with the third-best odds (+750) to win Super Bowl 56 after a ferocious 7-1 start and one of the league's best offensive attacks. The Rams' Super Bowl odds jumped to +650 within an hour of the news and before Miller had an opportunity to say goodbye to his Denver Broncos locker room.
Von Miller News
Miller's status as the best linebacker in football may be behind him, but 32-year-old veteran is still a scary addition to the Rams defense. Miller owns 4.5 sacks, 19 combined tackles (7 for loss) and 9 quarterback hits in 7 starts this season.
The proposition of him tagging up with the league's scariest pass-rusher in Aaron Donald will keep offensive coordinators up at night. The defensive unit ranks 10th in points allowed (21.0 per game) and first with 25 team sacks.
Los Angeles is clearly after a Super Bowl title in 2021. The team added veteran quarterback Matthew Stafford this offseason and the results have been magnificent. Los Angeles ranks fifth in points scored (30.6 per game) and fourth in passing yards (302.9 per game).
