Seattle Seahawks vs. Los Angeles Rams Predictions

After winning the NFC West with a record of 12-4 last year, the Seahawks stumbled out to an incredibly disappointing start to the new season, as Seattle kicked things off with a depressing 3-8 SU and 5-6 ATS skid – with four of those SU losses coming in matchups they were favored in.

Seattle has quickly gained steam over the last few weeks though, considering the Seahawks enter Tuesday’s contest following back-to-back victories over the Niners and Texans, with their offense averaging 31.5 PPG on 390 YPG across that window – and the defense surrendering just 18 PPG on 362.5 YPG across that same stretch.

On the other hand, Los Angeles posted an excellent start with new QB Matthew Stafford under center, as the Rams opened with wins in seven of their first eight games – with six of those victories coming by nine points or more.

The Rams have experienced some growing pains across their latest stretch though, considering L. A. dropped three straight games to Titans, Niners, and Packers – before ultimately bouncing back with convincing victories over the Jaguars (W, 37-7) and Cardinals (W, 30-23) in their latest two matchups.

I’ll take the over here, as we should be in for a shootout between a pair of red-hot and well-rested offenses on Tuesday night, with the Seahawks averaging 31.5 PPG on and 390 YPG across their last two games – and the Rams averaging 33.5 PPG on 387 YPG across that same stretch.

The Rams enter Tuesday’s contest favored by roughly a touchdown over the visiting Seahawks, which marks the heftiest underdog tag given to Seattle this season.

The total for Tuesday’s affair is stationed near OU 45 at most shops – marking the lowest over-under set for a Rams’ game this year.

Seattle Seahawks Betting Analysis

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 5-8
  • ATS: 7-6
  • O/U: 3-9-1
  • ATS - Away: 1-5-1

After posting a somewhat disappointing 2-2 start to the season, Seattle quickly became one of the league’s toughest teams to evaluate, as the Seahawks entered Week 5 as a slim 2.5-point underdog against a red-hot Rams squad – resulting in their third loss of the year, and an injured Russell Wilson.

Wilson has looked noticeably healthier over the last few weeks though, considering the Seahawks’ offense has racked up 31.5 PPG on 390 YPG across their latest two victories.

Los Angeles Rams Betting Analysis

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 9-4
  • ATS: 6-7
  • O/U: 7-6
  • ATS - Home: 3-3

When a team makes a dramatic switch at the quarterback position, it typically takes a few weeks for the offense to settle into a rhythm – but that couldn’t be further from the truth for Stafford and the Rams to open this season, as L. A. posted wins in seven of their first eight games, which included tough victories over the Bucs’, Colts, and Seahawks.

Right before their Week 11 bye though, the Rams posted a pair of disappointing performances against the Titans and Niners, as Stafford and company generated just 13 PPG on 312.5 YPG across losses in Weeks 9 and 10.

The Rams’ offense has seemingly ironed things out since then though, considering L. A. has averaged 31.7 PPG on 375.7 YPG across their latest three affairs.
