St. Louis CheerleadersThe St. Louis Rams and Arizona Cardinals are set to continue the 2012 NFL season, and as a part of our analysis of the Week 5 betting lines, we are taking a look at some of the best NFL props on the board for this crucial Thursday Night Football matchup.

Longest Field Goal Made Over/Under 44.5 Yards: K Greg Zuerlein has been one of the best kickers in the league this year, and he has made Head Coach Jeff Fisher look like quite the smart cookie. The rookie has already nailed one from 60 yards this year, and he doesn’t have a game yet in his career in which he has failed to hit a field goal of at least 42 yards. Three of his four games have featured a kick of at least 48 yards as well. Don’t forget about K Jay Feely either, as he has three games this year with at least one field goal made of 46+ yards. These two kickers are a combined 19-for-19 on field goal tries this year, and there is just no reason to think that there won’t be at least one successful boot of at least 45 yards in what should be one of the more defensive minded clashes on the Week 5 schedule. Longest Field Goal Made Over 44.5 Yards (-130)

Total Punts by Both Teams Over/Under 11: Asking to get to 12 punts in a game is an out of this world number. Yes, the Rams have punted 18 times this year in four games, and yes, the Cardinals have punted 26 times, but in the end, that’s only an average of exactly 11 punts per game. The truth of the matter is that moving the ball hasn’t always been the problem for these two squads. Turning the ball over has been problematic, but most importantly have been the aforementioned field goals that we were just talking about. 19 field goal tries between two teams in four games is outrageous and should be far lower. More touchdown need to be scored. As a result, this is a punt number that has been skewed, to say the least. Expect there to maybe perhaps 10 boots, but 12 is just far too many. Total Punts Under 11 (-115)

Ryan Williams Rushing Attempts Over/Under 15.5: Head Coach Ken Whisenhunt likes a one-back backfield, but what might have been proven last week against the Miami Dolphins is that Williams might not be that one back that can do the damage. Arizona will run the ball and run it a lot in this one, but we aren’t all that sure that Williams is going to be the man that does it. RB LaRod Stephens-Howling is going to be back in the fold this week in all likelihood, and that could create a bigger backfield for Williams to have to contend with. Arizona running backs are averaging 21.75 carries per game thus far this year. If six carries can get pillaged by Stephens-Howling or RB William Powell, we should be in business. Ryan Williams Under 15.5 Rushing Attempts (-115)

Andre Roberts Over/Under 3 Receptions: For whatever reason, when QB Kevin Kolb was in the lineup last year, the last thing that he wanted to do was throw the ball to WR Larry Fitzgerald. The chemistry just wasn’t there, and the ball was spread around a heck of a lot more. One of the beneficiaries was WR Early Doucet, who had the year of his career. Roberts had one of the best games that he has ever had last week when he had over 110 yards on six catches with two trips to the end zone, including the game-tying score on 4th and 10 with the game on the line against the Fins. As long as Kolb stays healthy, we could see Roberts being a guy who catches 80 passes this year. That means that asking for three to push and four to win should be relatively easy. Andre Roberts Over 3 Receptions (-120)

Brandon Gibson Over/Under 2.5 Receptions: What hope really is there for Gibson to have at least three catches in this game? QB Sam Bradford clearly won’t be completing 25 or 30 passes in this one, and WR Danny Amendola is going to get his first. Aside from him, there are a bunch of receivers that, more often than not, are going to account for fewer than three catches per game. Gibson hasn’t practiced all that much this week thanks to a knee tweak, and that is only going to make matters worse for a man that has exactly two catches in three straight games. This one won’t be any prettier in all likelihood. Brandon Gibson Under 2.5 Receptions (-130)
