For the first time since the Rams embarrassed the Cardinals out of the playoffs, the two NFC West rivals will meet. Both teams are coming off of wins and are looking to get their first win inside the division.

There's been some early questions about both teams, but here are three player props that can help you handicap this game even better.

Best Prop Bets For Rams-Cardinals Week 3

  • Cooper Kupp OVER Receiving Yards 
  • Darrell Henderson OVER Rushing Yards
  • Kyler Murray OVER Passing Completions

Cooper Kupp OVER Receiving Yards 

When it comes to the Rams, Cooper Kupp is the straw that stirs the drink. He carries the passing offense on his back. He’s cleared this line in eight of his last 10 games and missed it by a combined seven yards in the two losses. Kupp getting basically 100 yards a game should be assumed by now. As long as he’s healthy, the OVER on Kupp’s yards is a good bet to me.

Darrell Henderson OVER Rushing Yards

Henderson and Cam Akers have found themselves in a committee. The two backs split time last week, with each getting at least 10 carries. Henderson was the more efficient back though, averaging nearly two yards per carry more than Akers. The Rams are going to have to run the ball eventually and I don’t see the Cardinals completely shutting down the run game. Arizona is allowing 4.3 yards per carry right now. Even though that’s lower than what Henderson has done this season, he can clear this line as long as he gets his touches. 

Kyler Murray UNDER Passing Completions

In his career, Murray is averaging 21.6 completions per game against the Rams. However, we can expect an uptick in that this week. Murray completed 31 passes last week and will likely not throw the ball nearly 50 times this game. The Rams are allowing 21.5 completions per game and that’s with Josh Allen lighting them up. Unless this game goes into overtime, I don’t think Murray will have the attempts to get there.
