The Seattle Seahawks were the top to the NFC three weeks ago but after suffering two defeats in the last three games, they are now in jeopardy of losing a top spot in their division. Following the latest road loss to the Buffalo Bills, the Seahawks dropped to a 6-2 record, and although they are still 1st in the NFC West, that could change if they lose to the Rams on Sunday.

The Los Angeles Rams came off the bye week and a road loss to the Miami Dolphins, also their second in three games that caused them to drop to a 5-3 record and 3rd position in the NFC West. They have a chance to climb up to the top of the division with a win here, so there is no doubt we’re going to witness one of the most exciting games of Week 9. Here is my Seahawks vs. Rams betting prediction.

Seahawks vs. Rams Odds

Seahawks +1.5-110
Rams -1.5-110
Seahawks to win+104
Rams to win-118
Over 55.5-110
Under 55.5-110

Seahawks Allowed Season-High 44 Points in a Loss to the Bills

The Seattle Seahawks displayed the worst defensive performance in the last few years in a 44-34 road defeat to the Buffalo Bills. They were struggling on defense from the very start as Josh Allen and the Bills scored 14 points in the opening 14 minutes, allowing zero in return, and although Russell Wilson and his team tried to claw back in the second half, they couldn’t do it. Seattle committed even four turnovers, while its defense failed to force a single one, and the loss was inevitable.

Russell Wilson completed 28 of 41 passes for 390 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions, while he also added one rushing TD along the way. DK Metcalf was great with 108 yards and a score on seven catches, while David Moore contributed with 71 yards and a touchdown on four receptions. Rookie running back DeeJay Dallas led the team with 31 rushing yards and a TD on seven carries. Seattle’s defense did record seven sacks as Jarran Reed led the bunch with 2.5, but that didn’t make difference in the end.

The Seahawks are the best team in the NFL when it comes to the offense with 34.3 points per game, 1st in passing yards (298.1), 14th in rushing yards (116.9), while they have the 29th defense that allows 30.4 points per contest.

Rams’ Poor First Half Cost Them a Win in Miami

The Los Angeles Rams conceded 21 points in the second quarter in a game against the Miami Dolphins and despite the fact they didn’t allow a single point in the second half, the damage was done and they suffered a 28-17 defeat. Jared Goff’s offensive line didn’t work in the opening half as he lost two fumbles and threw a pair of interceptions, so they are to blame for the loss even though they improved in the second 30 minutes.

Jared Goff completed 35 of 61 losses for season-high 355 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. Cooper Kupp led all the receivers with 110 yards on 11 receptions, while Robert Woods caught the only touchdown pass and ended the clash with 85 yards on seven catches. Woods also added a rushing touchdown with one of his two rushing attempts. Micah Kiser was the most active individual on the defensive end with six tackles (one solo).

The Rams are the 21st team in the NFL when it comes to the offense with 24.1 points per game, 13th in passing yards (258.6), 7th in rushing yards (137.8), while they have the 2nd defense that allows 19.0 points per contest.

Seahawks vs. Rams Betting Pick

Pick
  • Los Angeles Rams -1.5
    -110

Even though the situation is different with the fans as we don’t live in a normal time right now, it’s worth noting that the Rams are on a five-game winning streak at home, while the Seahawks lost the last two games on the road. Also, the Rams won three of the previous four H2H duels at home, and I am backing them to win again because Seattle’s offense can’t match Los Angeles’s defense.

I am backing the Rams to use their D and neutralize Russell Wilson and co., and I’d highlight one of the best defenders in the NFL, Aaron Donald, to put a lot of pressure on Wilson.
