NFL Free Pick: SEA/STL
In a game only fans of those teams and bettors could love, the Seattle Seahawks travel to St. Louis on Sunday to take on their NFC West Division rivals the Rams.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made the Seahawks –3 point spread favorite. The over/under for this game has been set at 43.5 total points.
Key Trend: The Rams are just 1-5 against the spread in their last six games and 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games at home. The total has also gone under in five of the Rams’ last seven games.
Key Stat: Seattle is averaging 18.2 points per game and allowing 25.8, while the Rams are averaging just 13 PPG and allowing a whopping 30.3 PPG.
Game Outlook: Neither of these teams are a very attractive play this week, but we’d rather take our chances with a Seahawks team coming off an impressive cover against the Patriots than a Rams squad that has blown out several times in, and away from the Edwards Jones Dome this season. Seneca Wallace and the Seattle offense shown signs of life last week against New England, and shouldn’t have much trouble moving the ball against a St. Louis defense allowing over 220 passing yards and over 150 rushing yards per game. Seattle’s defense hasn’t played very well all season, but Marc Bulger gave up on the year long ago and outside of Steven Jackson, the Rams have zero playmakers. This should be an ugly game so take the under.
