The Line: Los Angeles Rams +1 -- Over/Under: 46.5
The Seattle Seahawks and Los Angeles Rams meet Sunday in week 14 NFL action at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
The Seattle Seahawks look for another victory to build on their five-game winning streak. The Seattle Seahawks have won all six road games this season. Russell Wilson is completing 67.4 percent of his passes for 3,177 yards, 26 touchdowns and four interceptions. Wilson has two or more touchdown passes in 19 of his last 24 games. Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf have combined for 1,536 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns while Will Dissly has 23 receptions. The Seattle Seahawks ground game is averaging 143.7 yards per contest, and Chris Carson leads the way with 981 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively, Seattle is allowing 24.4 points and 368.9 yards per game. Bobby Wagner leads the Seattle Seahawks with 115 tackles, Mychal Kendricks has three sacks and Tre Flowers has three interceptions.
The Los Angeles Rams need a statement win after splitting their last 10 games. The Los Angeles Rams have lost three of their last four home games. Jared Goff is completing 62.5 percent of his passes for 3,419 yards, 13 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Goff has one or less touchdown passes in 11 of his last 17 games. Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods have combined for 1,780 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Brandin Cooks has 31 receptions. The Los Angeles Rams ground game is averaging 94.2 yards per contest, and Todd Gurley II leads the way with 642 yards and eight touchdowns. Defensively, Los Angeles is allowing 20.8 points and 327 yards per game. Cory Littleton leads the Los Angeles Rams with 102 tackles, Aaron Donald has 9.5 sacks and John Johnson III has two interceptions.
The Seahawks are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. NFC and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Rams are 10-2 ATS in their last 12 vs. NFC, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. NFC West and 12-5 ATS in their last 17 games overall. The Seahawks are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 meetings in Los Angeles and the road team is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The under is 6-1 in Rams last 7 games overall. The over is 15-6 in Seahawks last 21 games overall.
The Seattle Seahawks are 3-3 ATS in their last six games as a road favorite. The Los Angeles Rams are 0-5 ATS in their last five games as a home underdog. The Seattle Seahawks continue to take care of business with an aggressive defense and Russell Wilson playing arguably the best season of his career as he chases an MVP award. The Los Angeles Rams dominated the Arizona Cardinals last week, but that doesn't move the needle much for me. The Rams are still a struggling team with a hit or miss offense that's led by a quarterback who looks nothing like the player from last year. The Seattle Seahawks are playing head and shoulders better football and haven't lost a regular season road game since December 16 of last year. The fact this is a near pick em to me is a joke. Give me the Seattle Seahawks for another road victory.
