Mims' Monday Night Football Picks: LA Rams at Arizona Cardinals, DeAndre Hopkins, Matthew Stafford props

Important game in the battle for playoff positioning could be a high-scoring affair.

The Monday Night Football Game has the Los Angeles Rams playing the Arizona Cardinals. Cardinals record is 10-2 while the Rams are 8-4. Both teams are ranked one and two in the NFC West. Cardinals are favored by 2.5 and the total is 51.5. The money line is -135 on Arizona and +115 on the Rams. Arizona is the home team.

Trends: Rams have a record of 7-1-1 in the last head-to-head ATS games against the Cardinals. Rams have won the last 6 meetings in Arizona.

59% of the action is on Cardinals and 62% is on the over.

Prop Bets: DeAndre Hopkins over 58.5 receiving yards. The price is -115. Going over. Matthew Stafford over 280.5 yards passing. The price is -115. He goes over.

Coaching Matchup: Sean McVay and Kliff Kingsbury are even.

My Take on the game: Rams must win to have a chance at the division. Cardinals beat the Rams in the first meeting this season by a score of 37-20. Rams inability to run the ball put them in a bad position against a good team. The Cardinals want to maintain the lead in the race for the best record in the NFC. The Rams are still trying to figure things out with the mid-season acquisitions. Take the Cardinals and the over.
