Los Angeles Rams vs Seattle Seahawks Betting Preview

Saturday, January 09 2021

The Rams (10-6) take on the divisional rival Seahawks (12-4) for the second time in three weeks. Of their total two contests in the regular season, the series is 1-1 straight up, 1-1 ATS and 0-2 O/U. Something to consider for this matchup is the health of both Jared Goff and Cam Akers of the Rams. It seems that Oddsmakers are assuming both are to start and play come Saturday given the close spread in an away game for the Rams. On the Seattle side, Chris Carson missed practice on Tuesday, but this seems to be just maintenance-based at this point in the season. He should be good to go come Saturday. The important player on the injury report for the Seahawks is Jamal Adams, who is dealing with a shoulder/hand injury according to the team website. Keep an eye on his progress through the week, as you may get some clarity the closer we get to game time. Injuries aside, here is my ATS pick for the first NFC Wild Card matchup.

Losa Angelas Rams vs Seattle Seahawks Betting Predictions

Seattle Seahawks -3.0


The Seahawks are hard to beat at home, going 7-1 Straight Up and 6-2 ATS this season. Meanwhile, the Rams are 4-4 on the road ATS. I believe Pete Carroll, Russell Wilson and company get the job done in this Wildcard matchup. According to the line continues to close, so expect an entertaining shootout. Lay the points.

Under 42.5 Points


Both the Rams and Seahawks are in the bottom 25% when it comes to O/U overall. The Rams are 4-4 O/U on the road and the Seahawks are 3-5 O/U at Home. In their two-game series on the year, both games ended up hitting the under. It is with these trends and the solid defensive play of both sides that under 42.5 points is the right move on this bet.

Top Prop Betting Picks

Russel Wilson +2 Touchdowns | Seattle To Win


This seems crazy that we are only betting 2 touchdowns here because Wilson was averaging nearly 4 touchdowns the first five games of the year. The Seahawks are a different team now, however Russel Wilson will still get the job done in the air this game, potentially in game defining moments.

Defensive or special teams touchdown scored? – Yes


This is a fun pick banking on both defenses showing up in big ways Saturday. The Rams specifically could cause a turnover or two that could lead to a score as they are second overall in defensive touchdowns scored per game. I see this coming from a fumble-recovery specifically.
