Time: 7:20 p.m., NFL Network
Line: Cardinals by 1. Total: 38 1/2.
Records (SU/ATS): Cardinals 4-0/3-1; Rams 2-2/3-1.
Fast fact: Teams that have won in OT this seaon are 0-4 SU/ATS the following week.
Outlook: Unbeaten Cardinals have won three games by four points or fewer, the last one a 24-21 OT victory at home over the not-so-great Dolphins — and they needed two late fumble recoveries even to do that. Cardinals have won their last seven games in their former hometown (5-2 ATS); and the Rams needed trickery to score a TD vs. the Seahawks last week. But on a short week anything can happen. Sometimes that’s all you have to go by.
Mark Potash’s pick: Rams 13, Cardinals 10.
