St. Louis Rams 2013 Season Win Total Outlook & Projection:

2013 St. Louis Rams Las Vegas Season Win Total Line;
As of this writing, oddsmakers have the 2013 regular season win total over/under line for the St. Louis Rams set at 7.5 wins... This represents an increase of 1/2 win over the Rams' prior season record of (7-8-1)... It also represents an increase of 1.5 wins over the Rams' Vegas win total line of 6 from last preseason.

The Rams played some impressive games last year scoring vicories over three playoff teams; Washington, Seattle, and San Francisco... Not to mention a tie with San Francisco.

The Rams also went an impressive (4-1-1) in their division.

Many point to this success and expect the Rams to build on their (7-8-1) record of a season ago, thereby topping this season's Vegas win total betting line.

However, how much better than (4-1-1) can the Rams expect to go in their division?

If anything, they may be more likely to lose ground when it comes to their division record. Would it be overly shocking if they were swept by either or both in-division Super Bowl favorites; San Francisco and/or Seattle?

Surely these teams will be extra ready for the Rams in 2013.

That said, the Rams do bring some impovements to the table in 2013. Most notably the addition of LT Jake Long & TE Jared Cook address important needs... If there's one thing Coach Fisher knows (he knows many) it's the power of a strong offensive line. When coaching Tennessee, the Titans had one of the best offensive lines in the league for many years. And it allowed the Titans to go on the road versus several top teams, and control the ball, the pace of the game, and pull off the upset.

Needless to say, the health of Jake Long as well as C Scott Wells will be paramount. Especially with the departure of RB Steven Jackson.

Meanwhile, other potential plusses include rookies Tavon Austin & Alec Ogletree who have fans salivating over their prospects.

There are of course weaknesses. Inexperience at key offensive skill positions including RB & WR could make scoring difficult in a division with top defensive talent.

Additionally, the Rams are weak at safety.

And they parted ways with effective linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar.

Much of the Rams' success in 2013 could come down to their strength of schedule.

Schedule Analysis:
In 2013 the Rams are tied for the 3rd toughest schedule in the league, much of which is of course the result of having to face the 49ers and Seahawks twice each;

In addition to the above 4 games involving opponents that made the playoffs last season, the Rams will also play 3 other returing playoff teams for a total of 7 such contests;

As you have no doubt realized, five of these seven matchups are road games.

In fact, the Rams face the hardest overall road schedule in the league.

Other potentially tough road conests include; @Dallas in week 3 and @Carolina in week 7. With the sole light contest coming @Arizona in week 14.

Meanwhile, tough home games include; Chicago in week 12, New Orleans in week 15, and Tampa Bay in week 16.

Lighter fair includes; Arizona in week 1, Jacksonville in week 5, and Tennessee in week 9.

Record Projection:
In 2013 we project the Rams to go (8-8) topping the Vegas win total line of 7.5.

While the Rams are on the up and up, their schedule is brutal. So there is certainly the potential for some downside to this projection.
