Rams vs. Seahawks: Betting odds, lines, picks against the spread

Injuries are inevitable in the NFL, but the two Los Angeles teams seem to be struggling more than most. The Rams will go into their Game of the Week 13 with either John Wolford or Bryce Perkins as their starters as they hope to hold out and pick up a win over the Seattle Seahawks.

Seattle Seahawks (-7, 41) at Rams

The Seahawks aren’t the juggernaut they seemed to be at the start of the season and this means they have a game to win. Seattle has lost to the Buccaneers and Raiders twice in a row, falling from 6-3 to 6-5. With the Rams this week and the Panthers next week, an 8-5 record in games against the 49ers and Chiefs would give some leeway.

Giving the Raiders 576 yards before the bye would be a bigger problem against another team. The Rams are completely neutralized without Cooper Kupp in the passing game and Allen Robinson is also placed on injured reserve. The Rams are down to 4.6 yards per game and rank 28th on just 1.52 points per drive. Given that most of the season was played with Kupp and Matthew Stafford, those numbers started off poorly and show no signs of improvement.

Defense has been a lifesaver for a time, but the Rams have allowed at least 26 points in four of five games since the bye. With the limitations on offense, that makes winning a game virtually impossible. In fact, the Rams have surpassed 26 points once this season. Wolford was 24 of 36 for 212 yards with one touchdown and one interception in his one game. Perkins was 13 of 23 for 100 yards with a touchdown and two picks on his start last week while also rushing for 44 yards on nine tries.

In other words, the defense has no margin for error and this group has fallen as the fighting spirit has waned and the season has passed. The Seahawks only have a 50% touchdown rate in the red zone but rank fifth in points per drive and average six yards per game.

The Seahawks have won all four games in which they held opponents under 370 yards by double digits. They should be able to do that here too.
