Rams QB Marc Bulger will miss Friday's game vs. Atlanta with a broken pinkie, and Las Vegas sportsbooks have reacted by making the Falcons a three-point favorite.
Las Vegas Sports Consultants, Inc., which provides pointspread guidance for the majority of Nevada's casino, installed the Rams as a 2.5-point favorite Monday morning , but Bulger's injury forced a significant swing in favor of the Falcons, who will have their starting quarterback, Matt Ryan.
With Bulger out, Kyle Boller gets the call at quarterback for St. Louis. Brock Berlin and Keith Null are the Rams' other quarterbacks.
One other quick note: If I'm not posting to this blog, writing for ProFootballWeekly.com or writing for Pro Football Weekly's print edition, I'm probably on Twitter. You can follow me at @mikewilkening ; some of the interesting stuff that doesn't make the blog will find its way there, such as a couple notes about the big line in Thursday's Bengals-Patriots game.
