The Seahawks are coming off a home loss and are 9 point underdogs to the Rams. The Rams keep getting favored by a lot since they’re 8-1 despite being 4-4-1 against the spread. Early money has come in on the Seahawks as this number was at 10 to start. I like the Rams though. Despite the large spread I think they have an easy time at home with the Seahawks.
The Seahawks defense is very overrated as we saw last week in their game against the Chargers. The Seahawks have dominated in their wins, but those games have not come against any good teams. The Seahawks were at home last week but Melvin Gordon was still able to gain 116 yards on just 16 carries. I expect Todd Gurley to have a big game against this defense as well. He has been playing very well all year and I expect that to continue here. The Seahawks kept their last game against the Rams close but I do not see that being the case here. The Seahawks probably played their most complete game of the season that week and still came up short. Last year the Rams lost their first matchup to the Seahawks before winning the second 42-7. Just like last year I think Sean McVay will have his team better prepared for the second go around and the Rams win this one big.
