Seattle Seahawks vs Los Angeles Rams
A rematch between the Seattle Seahawks and the Los Angeles Rams will take place at Stub Hub Center in Los Angeles, California, on Sunday afternoon at 4:25 pm EST. The Rams are coming off their first loss of the season on the road to the New Orleans Saints by a 45-25 score as Jared Goff threw for over 300 yards along with three TD’s, yet the rushing attack was stuffed by a stout defensive line for the Saints. The Seahawks are also coming off a loss in their last outing as they fell at home to the Los Angeles Chargers by a 25-17 score as Russell Wilson threw for 235 yards along with two TD’s with an interception that resulted in a pick six. Nonetheless, they allowed four sacks to the Chargers which sealed the deal late in the game.
The first meeting amongst these teams last month entailed the Rams getting the 33-31 road win over the Seahawks yet Seattle covered the 7.5 spread as underdogs. The Seahawks are 1-5 ATS in the last six games versus the Rams in Los Angeles while the under is 6-2 in the last eight meetings in Los Angles.
Seattle Seahawks's Latest Performance :
The Seahawks had won four of five games before their matchup with the Chargers. And despite their last loss, they continue to sit in the second place slot within the NFC West division behind the Rams. Of course, they continue to look for a signature win that could possibly turn their season from average to above average. Russell Wilson has thrown for 11 TD’s along with only two interceptions in his last four outings while Chris Carson has rushed for 100 or more yards in three of his last four outings. He is questionable for this game, however, with a hip ailment. Nonetheless, the Seahawks and their offense is not only improving as the season progresses, the way in which their defense has played is impressive as well.
The defense for Seattle is ranked in the top 10 in total yards allowed (333), total pass years (219), along with total points per game (19.5). With that being said, they can be had on the ground as they are ranked 21st in the league thus far. Look for the Rams to exploit this after a lackluster performance on the ground versus the Saints.
Los Angeles Rams's Latest Performance :
The Rams defense, ranked 10th in the league in allowing 22 points per game, had their worst outing of the year as they allowed the Saints 45 points in their last outing while also allowing Drew Brees and company to rack up over 500 yards in total offense for the game. This defense was dismantled as the Saints also converted five of five opportunities within the red zone for the night. They will certainly look for a much better outing versus the Seahawks, which have struggled on offense yet possesses the 3rd ranked rushing attack in the league.
The offense was led by Jared Goff who passed for almost 400 yards along with three TD’s next to one interception, however, Todd Gurley and the rushing attack could not take control of the trenches as the Saints top ranked unit destroyed them at the point of attack, thus allowing for the blowout win. Gurley II, however, did have a score in the game while Brandin Cooks had a score on 114 receiving yards on the night.

Against The Spread Selection: Pick: Seattle Seahawks +10
My reason for the pick :
While the Rams may indeed pull out a victory in this contest, I will ride the Seahawks to keep this game close as they certainly played them well the first time around yet getting the two-point loss. As stated, Russell Wilson continues to play well and while the rushing attack may indeed be without Carson due to injury, Seattle possesses other talent that can carry on in his absence. Also, with the Seahawk defense continuing to fly around and being aggressive, look for anything to happen in this matchup.
Totals Selection: Pick: Over 51.5
My reason for the prediction :
I envision this game as one where many big plays will be made from both teams. With that being said, the over, which was the result in their last outing, would be a logical and strong pick. Again, both Wilson and Goff come in red hot for this contest while their rushing attacks are improving as well. Look for each to bring their A game in which to have a solid night on the offensive end in this matchup.
