BetAnySports Game Line: Seattle -13.5
BetAnySports Total Line: 39.5
A NFC West tilt between the Los Angeles Rams and the Seattle Seahawks kicks things off in Week 15 of the NFL regular season when they clash this Thursday night at CenturyLink Field. Game time is set for 8:25 p.m. (ET) and this division matchup will be broadcast nationally on NBC.
Los Angeles at Seattle Game Preview
The Rams continue to ride out the string with just one straight-up victory in their last nine games. Their latest setback was a miserable 42-14 drubbing at the hands of Atlanta this past Sunday as five-point home underdogs with BetAnySports. The total went OVER 43.5 points in that loss after staying UNDER in five of their previous six games. Los Angeles has failed to cover against the spread in eight of its last nine contests.
It is no big surprise that rookie quarterback Jared Goff continues to struggle on an offense that is ranked last in the NFL in both yards per game (286.2) and points per game (14.9). The Rams have only scored more than two touchdowns once in their last seven games. The only bright spot on this team has been a defense that is ranked 10th in the league in yards allowed, but it has given up 117 total points over its last three games.
Seattle had its own issues on Sunday in a stunning 38-10 loss to Green Bay as a three-point favorite on the road with BetAnySports. It was the Seahawks second loss in three games both SU and ATS and while they still have a sizable lead over Arizona in the NFC West Division title race at 8-4-1 SU, they are now an even 6-6-1 ATS. The total has gone OVER in four of their last six games.
Look for a much better effort from Russell Wilson on Thursday night simply because he probably cannot play any worse that he did against Green Bay. He tossed five interceptions against just one touchdown while completing fewer than 57 percent of his 39 attempts. Seattle’s defense will also have to regain its form as one of the stingiest units in points allowed (17.8) in light of its complete collapse against the Packers.
Los Angeles at Seattle Free Game Pick
Giving up 13.5 points to a division foe that has already won four of the past five meetings both SU and ATS sounds like a risky bet, but given just how bad the Rams are right now and how much Seattle needs a win, I am going to lay those points with BetAnySports and take the Seahawks to cover.
