Let’s take a closer look at these two teams and we’ll start with the underdog Seattle Seahawks.
The Seahawks are 4-4 overall and 4-3-1 ATS. The Seattle Seahawks are a shell of their former selves, as the defense isn’t as good and the offense hasn’t shown any consistency this season. Seattle is 4-3-1 ATS overall, 2-1 ATS after a loss, 2-1 ATS at home and 2-1-1 ATS as an underdog. Russell Wilson leads the team in passing with 1,791 yards for 18 touchdowns and 5 interceptions.

Los Angeles gets the win, but fails to cover on the road
Seattle’s defense has made improvements since the beginning of the season and have become an above average defense. The Rams have an explosive offense and an average defense, but they struggle to cover the spread going 4-5 ATS overall and 2-3 ATS on the road. I look for both of those trends to continue with a Seahawks cover, but a Rams win. Make sure to bet this match-up on BetDSI.
