Los Angeles Rams vs. Seattle Seahawks Prediction
The Rams recently fired head coach Jeff Fisher, longtime NFL coach Jim Fassel son, John Fassel special teams coordinator will be interim head coach for the last three games of the season. This might bring a new found energy to Los Angeles after going 1-4 in their last 5 games. With that being said, the players may feel like they can do the same they did in week 2. Rams defense held Seattle to just 3 points, winning the game 9-3 in Los Angeles.
Seattle is 6-0 at home, on average beat teams by 12 points at home. Given that the Seahawks are a 15.5 point favorite. The safe bet here is just as the numbers say, Rams +15.5 at -115 odds. Will this be another defensive game like in week 2? I am not sure, Quarterback Russel Wilson have been struggling lately so it could be a low scoring game. However, Wilson may be looking to have a breakout game against the Rams.
I am a huge Seattle Seahawks fan and since I am someone who likes to follow the numbers and not let my emotions get the best of me. I place my bet on Rams +15.5 because I don’t think the Seahawks will cover the spread and I am going with under 39.
