The Los Angeles Rams can at least get a share of the top spot in the NFC West with a win over the Seattle Seahawks this week, but of course, that’s going to be easier said than done. Will the Seahawks avoid losing back to back? Or will the Rams score a win right out of a bye?
Betting Preview for the Seattle Seahawks vs Los Angeles Rams Regular Season Week 10 Game on November 15, 2020
Where: SoFi Stadium, Inglewood
When: Sunday, November 15, 2020, 4:25 PM ET
TV Broadcast: FOX
Betting on the Seattle Seahawks (+1.5)
Regular Season Record: 6-2
Week 9’s 44-34 road loss to the Buffalo Bills was another proof that as long as Russell Wilson is under center for the Seahawks, they will be competitive. Wilson, however, had mistakes of his own, as he threw two interceptions to go along with his 390 passing yards and two touchdowns on 28-of-41 completions. Nevertheless, Wilson is a proven winner and he’ll be up to the task of trying to break down Los Angeles’ defense this weekend. On the season, Wilson has passed for 2,541 yards and 28 touchdowns against eight interceptions. He is fourth overall with a QB rating of 80.4, per ESPN. With Chris Carson, Carlos Hyde, and Travis Homer all looking questionable to play in Week 10, the Seahawks’ ground attack may not be able to help Wilson in moving the chains for Seattle, which only recorded 57 rushing yards, but Wilson is still good enough to bring his team’s offense close enough to the goal line to strike by rushing. He and DeeJay Dallas scored a rushing score apiece against Buffalo.
The Seahawks are 2-1 against the spread in their last three road games against the Rams. They are also 6-4 against the spread in their last 10 games overall.
Betting on the Los Angeles Rams (-1.5)
Regular Season Record: 5-3
The Rams are coming off a bye in Week 9, and before that, they ate a humble pie served by the Miami Dolphins in a 28-17 loss in South Beach. The Rams couldn’t get much going on offense, as Miami’s defense was all over them like sauce on spaghetti. The Rams turned the ball over four times, all coming from Jared Goff, who was picked off twice and had two lost fumbles. But Goff can probably breathe now, as he’ll not be facing the same suffocating defense against Seattle, which has a stop unit that seems to operate pretty much like a broken turnstile. The Seahawks are 30th in the NFL with 30.4 points allowed per game and last with 455.8 total yards surrendered per contest. Goff should feel more comfortable in the pocket and in letting the ball fly against that kind of defense. Just last week, Bills quarterback Josh Allen had a career-high of 415 passing yards and three touchdowns without an interception against Seattle, offering a nice view of what’s likely to come for Goff and the Rams’ passing attack. Defensively, the Rams will look to contain Wilson in the pocket, with their pass rush that is fifth in the NFL with 25 sacks.
The Rams are 3-1-1 against the spread in their last five home games.
The Seahawks win, 32-27.
