Packers vs. Rams 12/19/22 NFL Betting Tips: The Season So Far
Things haven’t been going fantastically for either side so far this season.
Few teams have disappointed their fans as much this season as the Rams. Although, to be fair, this can’t all be put down to the performances on the pitch, as injuries have taken a real toll and forced Los Angeles to stretch the depth of their squad.
While the injury list doesn’t mean anything good for this season, it gives management a chance to give alternative players minutes and make definitive decisions on whether they’re worth keeping around for next year.
The Rams are already being made to look to the future as their languishing near the bottom of the NFC means any hopes of on-field achievements this year have come and gone.
The mediocrity is made even more crushing by the fact that the Rams are coming straight off the back of a Super Bowl victory that had fans thinking the glory years were about to start rolling in. At the moment, with a record of just 3-8, it looks like it will just be a singular glory year. It’s been one of the worse season openings for a Super Bowl champion side in football history, and the chance of a victory in Packers vs. Rams 12/19/22 is looking slim.
The Packers’ season so far hasn’t gone as badly as the Rams, but then again, whose has?
Things looked like they were in the balance at the beginning of the season, with a playoff spot being more than attainable. Sketchy form has seen that outcome become increasingly unlikely, though, and the side has slowly slid down most outlets’ power rankings.
To keep Aaron Rodgers safe, the side may decide to take their foot off the gas and keep an eye on what can be achieved next season. If Jordan Love can step up to the plate in the QB role and elevate the side around him, then there’s still a slim chance that the side will compete for a playoff spot.
Packers vs. Rams 12/19/22 Prediction
Neither side in Packers vs. Rams has blown fans away this season. But The Packers are the likely winners here, with the Rams bowing to almost every side they face this year.
