Betting Line: Rams -10
Over/Under: 51 points at 888 Sportsbook
In this NFC West game there are already big-time NFL playoff implications.
Punters have many betting options for this rivalry game between two teams that have no love lost for each other.
The Seahawks had their modest two-game win streak snapped in their last game to drop them to 4-4 on the season. They are well behind the 8-1 Rams in the NFC West and unless they win this game the Wild Card may be their only shot for the playoffs. The Seahawks do not have the Legion of Boom any longer in the secondary, the defense for the team is still their strength ranking fifth in the NFL in points against.
All good things must come to an end and the Rams lost their first game of the season in their last one. They lost to the New Orleans Saints on the road where their defense did not have the best game, to say the least, giving up 45 points. Not only did the defense struggle, but running back Todd Gurley was not his MVP front-running self.
These teams met earlier this season in Seattle where the Rams narrowly beat the Seahawks 33-31.
This season the Seahawks are 4-3-1 ATS and they have an Over/Under record of 2-6 with the Rams at 4-5 ATS with an Over/Under record of 4-5.
The Rams have covered the spread in five of their last six home games facing the Seahawks.
In their last game, the Seahawks were also in La La Land and lost to the L.A. Chargers 25-17. They gave up 160 rushing yards in the game and had the only turnover in the game.
In the loss to the Chargers quarterback Russell Wilson passed for 235 yards with two touchdowns and he had an interception. Doug Smith led Seattle with 77 receiving yards and Mike Davis led them with 62 rushing yards with Wilson rushing for 40. Seattle is a run first team and they face the Rams, who have the 13th ranked run defense in the league and in their loss to New Orleans in their last game they gave up 141 rushing yards.
The Rams lost to the Saints 45-35 in their last game giving up 35 points in the first half. They had almost the same number of yards and while Jared Goff went off passing for 391 yards Todd Gurley only rushed for 68 yards. He only had 77 rushing yards in the earlier win over the Seahawks this season and will face a Seattle run defense that ranks seventh in the league.
Goff has the weapons with Gurley and a solid wide receiver corps, but the defense has to play better than did in their last game in the Big Easy.
Seattle Seahawks betting trends
- 12-4-2 ATS in their last 18 games following a loss
- 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 road games facing a team with a winning home record
- Under record of 4-0 in their last four road games
LA Rams betting trends

Seattle Seahawks vs. L.A. Rams betting prediction
The Rams barely beat the Seahawks in the Great Northwest earlier this season and in this game in L.A. I see the same thing happening.
The Rams will get the win, but the Seahawks will keep it close giving L.A. a game and they will cover the spread.
