The Los Angeles Rams watched their Super Bowl odds go from 200/1 to 100/1 following their Week 1 blowout against the Indianapolis Colts.
After only winning four games all of last season, the Los Angeles Rams received little love heading into the 2017 season when it came to their odds of winning Super Bowl LII, and rightfully so when looking at all of the areas in need of improvement. However, it looks like the Rams only needed one game to turn some of those doubters into believers thanks to their 46-9 blowout win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 1.
Believe it or not, Los Angeles watched their Super Bowl odds go from 200/1 to 100/1, according to ESPN beat writer Alden Gonzalez. And while the Rams still have a lot to prove since the Colts were missing numerous key players on both sides of the football, at least it’s good to finally see some excitement surrounding this team.
Making Sean McVay the youngest head coach in NFL history was a bold move by Los Angeles in the offseason after finally moving on from Jeff Fisher, but it seems to be paying off for the team so far. One of the main reasons why the Rams were so interested in bringing McVay on board was his history of quarterback development after seeing all of the success he had with Kirk Cousins in the previous two seasons, which the team hopes to see happen with Jared Goff.
As previously mentioned, it’s only been one game, but there’s already a major difference to Goff’s style of play under center when compared to his rookie year, as the Rams quarterback looks much more comfortable thanks to an improved offensive line along with a better receiving corps. With an upcoming matchup against McVay’s former team in the Washington Redskins, it will be interesting to see if the odds for Los Angeles to win this year’s Super Bowl take another leap if they manage to pull off the win to start off 2-0.
