Matchup: Rams (9-4) at Seahawks (8-5)
TV: FOX, 4:05 p.m. ET
Line: Seahawks -2.5
ODDS: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the over/under currently sits at 47.5 points after hitting the board at 48. The Seahawks, meanwhile, are now 2.5-point home favorites after opening as a 1-point home favorite.
PUBLIC BETTING: As of this writing, 60% of the betting tickets are on the Seahawks while 63% of the money is also on Seattle.
INJURY REPORT: While cornerback Kayvon Webster (Achilles) is out, the Rams should have fellow defensive back Trumaine Johnson (concussion), who is probable. Connor Barwin (arm) is also probable and receiver Robert Woods (shoulder) is likely to play after missing several weeks.
On the other side, linebackers Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright (concussion) are both questionable after they were injured last Sunday in Jacksonville. Of course, Kam Chancellor, Richard Sherman and Cliff Avril are all out for the year.
OUR PREDICTION: The under is 5-0 in the last five meetings between these two teams in Seattle and is 15-5-1 in the last 21 meetings between these two rivals overall. The under is also 10-2 in the Rams’ last 12 games after allowing more than 30 points in their previous game, is 10-4 in their last 14 games versus NFC West rivals, and is 35-16 in their last 51 road games against an opponent with a winning home record.
On the other side, the under is a perfect 4-0 in the Seahawks’ last four games versus divisional rivals, is 8-1 in their last nine conference games, and is 14-6 in their last 20 games played in the month of December.
