NFL FREE PICK: Take Seattle. According to latest NFL trends, the Seahawks are 9-3 against the spread in their last 13 games versus the Rams and 7-1 ATS in their last eight road games. They’re also 5-1 ATS in their last six divisional games, 21-7 ATS in their last 28 games versus the NFC, and 5-1 ATS in their last six games following an ATS win. The Rams, meanwhile, are 0-5 against the number in their last five games versus NFC opponents, 0-4 ATS in their last four Monday night games, and 1-4 ATS in their last five games following an ATS win.
Sam Bradford is out for the season with a torn ACL and Kellen Clemens now has the daunting task of facing a nasty Seattle defense, which boasts arguably the best and toughest secondary in the NFL. The Seahawks should be able to build a lead with their running game and their defense should completely shut down Clemens and a highly ineffective Rams’ offense.
