Predicting the Rams 2018 Vegas Win Total staff writer Bill Barnell breaks down the projected win total for all 32 clubs next season. To do so, Barnell used their performance from the 2017 season, his knowledge of Las Vegas bookmaking, plus assumptions about what each team will do during the offseason.

Below is Barnell’s guess as to what the lines might become in April for the Rams projected win total:

— Projected 2018 over/under: 9.5 wins

“Keep in mind that their Vegas over/under before Week 1 was at six wins with heavy juice (-160) on the under. Very few people saw this year's 11-5 breakout coming… Sean McVay's team improved by seven wins over that of 2016; since 1989, teams that have jumped by seven or more wins in a given year declined by nearly four wins the following season.” 


Rams cornerback Kayvon Webster suffered a season-ending achilles injury in Week 13’s loss to the Eagles. But after having surgery on his foot, Webster is already making the best of his recovery process. On Friday, Webster posted this video of him walking for the first time.
