Los Angeles Rams 2022 Super Bowl 56 odds
The Los Angeles Rams were carried to the NFC Divisional Round last season by their No. 1-ranked defense before getting bounced by QB Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. With QB Matthew Stafford now leading the charge, the Rams hope to take a step forward on offense in 2021. Below, we look at the Los Angeles Rams 2022 Super Bowl 56 odds, with NFL futures picks and predictions.
The Rams finished 10-6 last season and earned a wild-card berth in the NFC Playoffs. They beat the Seattle Seahawks in the wild-card round but Rodgers and the Packers knocked off the Rams at Lambeau Field in the second round. No team had a better defense than Los Angeles in 2020, as the Rams ranked first in points allowed, yards allowed, passing defense and first downs allowed.
Heading into 2021, the Rams will have a new look. Stafford was acquired in a trade for Jared Goff and three draft picks. He joins L.A. after 12 years with the Detroit Lions.
The NFC West looks even tougher than it did last season, so it could be a difficult path to the playoffs for the Rams in 2021. Head coach Sean McVay has never finished worse than 9-7, so he'll have them prepared.

Rams' offseason recap
The first and biggest splash of the offseason came when the Rams traded Goff and three picks for Stafford. It was the result of McVay's growing frustration with the team's stagnant offense under Goff, causing him to bring in a proven veteran who can push the ball downfield.
The Rams' only other notable addition was the signing of WR DeSean Jackson to give the team a true deep threat at wideout. They suffered a bunch of tough losses. CB Troy Hill, S John Johnson, C Austin Blythe and TE Gerald Everett all left in free agency, while DE Michael Brockers was traded to the Lions.
Raheem Morris is taking over as the defensive coordinator after Brandon Staley was hired as the Los Angeles Chargers' new head coach.
Los Angeles Rams Super Bowl 56 and 2021 NFL futures picks
Only the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers have better Super Bowl odds than the Rams. Los Angeles is tied with the Baltimore Ravens and Buffalo Bills for third. There's no denying the Rams' potential, but they'll have to go through teams like the Bucs, San Francisco 49ers, Packers, Seahawks, Arizona Cardinals and Dallas Cowboys in the NFC to reach the Super Bowl.
Still, I like a small wager on the Rams to win the Super Bowl at +1200, which carries plenty of value and reward. Their defense has been tested after finishing first in the NFL last season, while the offense is now led by an aggressive quarterback with a dynamic group of receivers.
I also would consider a bet on the Rams to win OVER 10games (-130). With 17 games on the docket, they could easily go 11-6 thanks to favorable games against the Houston Texans, New York Giants, Lions and Jacksonville Jaguars.
