Betting on the Los Angeles Rams (+1)
Regular Season Record: 9-5
What was that? That’s likely everyone’s reaction after seeing the Rams lose to a high school team AKA the New York Jets last Sunday, 23-20. The Rams were simply outplayed by the Jets in a matchup that they shouldn’t have been. Jared Goff was outplayed by Sam Darnold, as the Rams’ defense allowed the Jets’ quarterback to complete 22-of-31 passes and for 207 yards and a touchdown. That loss was probably a result of the Rams simply taking their opponents too lightly and thinking that it was next to impossible for them to lose to a dumpster-on-fire football team, so expect them to get back to their senses when they face a legitimate Super Bowl contender on Sunday. The Rams defeated the Seahawks in Week 10 earlier this season, 23-16, with their defense doing the heavy lifting. The Rams sacked Russell Wilson six times and intercepted him twice, while not allowing him to score a passing touchdown.
The Rams are 6-4 against the spread in their last 10 road games.
Betting on the Seattle Seahawks (-1)
Regular Season Record: 10-4
The Seahawks edged out the Washington Football Team on the road last Sunday, 20-15. Russell Wilson passed for only 121 yards and a touchdown with an interception on 18-of-27 completions, as the Seahawks let their rushing attack lead the way. The Seahawks had 181 rushing yards and a touchdown on 26 carries in that game, and they could stick to that plan in the rematch against the Rams. In Week 10, the Seahawks rushed the ball just 22 times but managed to rack up 113 yards and a touchdown, despite missing Chris Carson. Well, Carson is going to play this time around, so that backfield will expectedly be deadlier. The Seahawks are 19th in the NFL in rushing play percentage but are 11th with 125.4 rushing yards per game and fourth with an average of 4.9 carries per contest.
The Seahawks are 3-1 against the spread in their last four home games.
The Rams win, 24-23.
