Rams vs. Seahawks Free Pick
One of the hotter teams in football will look to avenge a Week 1 loss when the Seahawks host the Rams today at 4:25PM ET.
Despite losing to the Rams in their season opener this season, the Seahawks are a 12-point home favorite versus St. Louis today according to oddsmakers from online sports book RealBet.eu. The total, meanwhile, is sitting at 40 points after the number opened at 41.
The Rams have won back-to-back games, covering as a 3-point home dog to the Lions two weeks ago and as a 2.5-point home favorite versus the Bucs last Thursday. But for as well as Case Keenum has played the past two games, he wasn’t tested like he will be today. The same goes for Rob Boras, who took over the play-calling duties when Frank Cignetti was fired three weeks ago.
We’ll see how well Keenum and Boras fair today against a Seattle defense that has come together over the past month. The Seahawks suffered some early-season woes under new coordinator Kris Richard, but he and the players are now on the same page and the communication problems they were having a few months ago have seized.
Even though the Seahawks are red-hot offensively, the Rams’ defense will likely keep them somewhat in check. But without being able to move the ball offensively themselves, the Rams should be a double-digit loser today.
