Eagles Size and Advantage on the Glass Give Them Edge Over Rams
Both the Eagles and Rams have faced weak schedules which helps explain their perfect records. Though the teams are similar in several respects, the Eagles have the advantage on the glass due to ranking 50th in the country in rebounding and having the size to protect the interior against the Rams. Neither team is prone to turnovers, and while the Rams shoot well from the arc, they haven’t gone up against a team of quality or with the Eagles’ size. For these reasons, the Eagles are the favored team.
