Seahawks vs. Rams Pick
The lowest total on the board in the NFL this Sunday is the Seahawks and Rams matchup. Will the under still cash for bettors?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Seahawks are 6.5-point road favorite versus the Rams in their home-opener in L.A. The total, meanwhile, is sitting at 38 points after the number opened at 38.5. The side also moved off the original number, going from Seattle -7 to -6.5.
SEATTLE: The Seahawks beat the Dolphins 12-10 but failed to cover as a 10.5-point home favorite in Week 1. Russell Wilson completed 27-of-43 passes for 258 yards with one touchdown and one interception while suffering an ankle injury in the process. Christine Michael led Seattle in rushing, posting 66 yards on 15 carries while Doug Baldwin caught nine of 11 targets for 92 yards and the game-winning touchdown.
LOS ANGELES: The Rams were horrendous on Monday night in Santa Clara, losing 28-0 to the 49ers as a 2.5-point road favorite. Case Keenum was dreadful, going 17-of-35 for 130 yards and two interceptions while Todd Gurley rushed just 17 times for 47 yards. The Rams' defense wasn't great either, but it was on the field the entire game so eventually it caved, allowing 14 points in the fourth quarter.

OUR PICK: With Wilson struggling with an ankle injury, Seattle's offensive line young and inexperienced, and the Los Angeles offense being completely inept, the under is the best play in this matchup. The under is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings between these two teams, is 6-1 in the Seahawks' last seven games overall and 16-5 in the Rams' last 21 games overall. This game has 17-13 written all over it.
