3 units on Game Total OVER PICK (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: loss
It is hard to believe that a team like Seattle, that has lost nine games by an average of 21 points a game, is playing in their finale at home to earn a spot in the playoffs. How can they possibly be the right side here? This is a home game with a lot on the line. The Rams are the better team, but asking them to win a high-pressure game on the road is asking a lot. Asking them to win it by more than a field goal is likely asking too much. Let's not forget that the Rams prior to this season owned the worst record in the NFL the past three seasons. And, this season, they have managed just two road wins. On the season on the road they have been outscored by a touchdown per game. As crazy as it seems, we may see a 7-9 team in the playoffs. At the minimum, I expect Seattle to find a way to hang within the number. I also like the OVER. The Seahawks have allowed 27 points per game this season and more as the season has wore on. When facing losing teams, their offense has gotten 22.6 ppg (28 ppg vs. losing teams at home). The Rams defense which held seven of their first eight opponents to 18 points or less, has now allowed an average of 24.4 ppg in their last seven. The Seahawks have topped the total in eight straight games and they are 8-0 OVER this season afterr a loss by 14+ points. Take the home team and the OVER here.
