St. Louis Rams tight end Cory Harkey (46) scores a touchdown on a 16-yard pass reception in the first quarter of a preseason NFL football game between the Rams and the New Orleans Saints Friday, Aug. 8, 2014, in St. Louis.

Here’s the latest installment of the Play of the Day, which uses odds from the South Point. Our three sports writers started with a $10,000 bankroll — fictional, of course.

Green Bay Packers at St. Louis Rams, Total Over 41: $550 to win $500: Former No. 1 overall draft pick Sam Bradford will make his preseason debut for St. Louis, looking to show he’s fully recovered from last year’s season-ending injury.

This season is significant for Bradford. He either plays like a first-round draft pick, or the Rams will be forced to go another direction.

With that in mind, look for Bradford to make a statement by leading the Rams on some scoring drives.

The Rams scored 24 points last week in a loss to the New Orleans Saints, including 17 points by the starters in the first half. Green Bay scored just 13 points last week, but had to settle three times for field goals. Convert one touchdown, and it’s a different story.

All signs point to the over.

Standings: Bern (42-31-1, $13,292), Keefer (35-39, $9,392), Brewer (29-42-3, $1,850)
