Bill Enright: A year after making the Super Bowl, the Rams went 9-7 in 2019. What's the outlook for them in 2020? Let's bring on Corey Parson and Jamie Eisner, our fantasy and gambling analysts, to go over the Rams win total for 2020. Jaime, I'll start with you. What are the sportsbooks saying about how many games they expect Los Angeles to win this year? 

Jaime Eisner: Right now, the total sits at 8.5 with even -110 juice on both sides. It's very interesting, the bottom of the NFC West, whether it's them or Arizona, is gonna be interesting. It's a tough division with the Niners already in it, and the Seahawks, both teams can win double digit games this year. For my money, I think the Rams are actually the fourth best team in the division. So I like the under here. They lost a lot of talent this offseason. It's going to be tough for them to finish with a winning record again. 

Bill Enright: Corey, it wasn't that long ago that everyone was anointing Sean McVay as the genius coach, and everyone wanted to either play for him or pick his brain on his playbook. And now we're only projecting less than nine wins. Which way do you go here? 

Corey Parson: Yeah. I mean, listen, here's the thing, the luster is off the Los Angeles Rams right now, and it's mainly because they wrapped up Jared Goff to that big contract. I think that was a very foolish move. We've seen that this kid right here, Jared Goff, he's a stiff. I don't think he's that good of a quarterback, never really thought he was a good quarterback. Sean McVay, you start to see some cracks, as Jaime mentioned, how the rest of the division has gotten better. I also think the Arizona Cardinals can be a better team than the Rams this year. You look at their strength of schedule. Tied for 10th, they start the year home versus Dallas in their big new stadium. Then they immediately go on the road to Philadelphia and Buffalo, two playoff teams from last year. That's before we get into division play. I think the Rams are going to have tough times this season. I take the under.
