Thursday Night Gambling Preview Rams vs. Seahawks

Los Angeles Rams (3-1) vs. Seattle Seahawks (2-2)

The Rams (3-1) head to Seattle (2-2) for a Thursday Night showdown. This is perhaps the best TNF game of the season so why not put some money on it!

Line: Rams -2.5

Total: 54.5

Moneyline: Rams -140

Preview

The Rams are coming off of an embarrassing home loss to the Cardinals, while the Seahawks just beat the 49ers in San Francisco. Immediately my brain goes into “Buy low, Sell high” mode. 

However, I’d be cautious about betting solely based on that thought. This is a divisional game and, more importantly, a divisional home dog. The Seahawks are definitely a live dog in this situation and if this line ever reaches Seahawks +3 I will have to make a small play on it. 


That being said, I do believe the Rams are the better team and were in a bad let down spot last week after torching the defending champs in LA in Week 3. The Seahawks have more deficiencies than the Rams do and usually those tend to be exacerbated during a short week without proper time to prepare. I’m not sure I would bet the Rams -2.5, but I think they’ll win. 

Prediction: Rams 27 - Seahawks 23
