Why Bet on the Seattle Seahawks?
Seattle has gone 3-3 since winning two of its first seven games. We’ve seen the side improve in recent weeks. This should give the Rams more of a challenge as they step inside the SoFi Stadium. Moreover, their last two wins give the squad a much-needed boost against the second-best team in the NFC West right now.
The Seahawks’ offense is expected to struggle against a robust Rams defense. They currently average 20.9 points (21st) per game. As a team, the visitors produce 310.2 yards (28th) per game. This comes from a 205.8 passing yards (24th) average combined with 104.4 rushing yards per game in 13 games played.
We don’t expect the Seahawks to approach the game from an offensive standpoint. Instead, we are likely to see the Seahawks make their way from the defensive end. The team holds opponents to 20.2 points (fifth) per game. Although they have the worst opponent yards record in the league at 394.9 yards per game, the high-scoring Rams team should be put under pressure by the visitors on Sunday.
The Seahawks have several problems on offense. Wide receivers DK Metcalf and Freddie Swain are on the questionable list. Right guard and right tackle Gabe Jackson and Brandon Shell join the two on the list due to injury.
Why Bet on the Los Angeles Rams?
The Rams are looking good following a three-game losing streak between Week 11 and 13. They now return to winning ways following wins against the Jaguars and the Cardinals.
Offense is the Rams’ bread and butter. The squad ranks fourth-best in the league in points per game. They average 28.2 points in 13 games played. Passing is where they produce most of the yards. The team averages 287.3 passing yards (third) per game. Despite not being the best rushing team in the league with 97.2 rushing yards (24th) per game, the hosts managed to record 384.5 yards per game.
The team is not too bad on defense either. The Rams hold their challengers to 22.5 points (17th) per game. They limit opponent yards to 347.1 yards per game, which is significantly better than their upcoming rivals. Furthermore, the team does well to defend rushing plays, limiting teams to 100.6 rushing yards (seventh) per game.
The Rams have multiple starters missing Sunday’s game again, including running back Darrell Genderson Jr. and wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. Meanwhile, Brian Allen and Aaron Donald are added to the questionable list after the pair sustained injuries in their recent appearance.

Seahawks vs. Rams Expert Betting Predictions
The Seahawks stand a chance at covering the spread here. The team has looked good in the last two games and produced solid results to secure a couple of wins. A victory is not out of the picture as well. If they can start the game on a positive note and keep the pace going until the final quarter, we might even see the Rams in trouble. However, the Rams remain the favorites in this game. Having a better overall record and more consistent players can make it tough for a roughed-up Seahawks squad.
