The Seattle Seahawks hit the road for a date with the Los Angeles Rams, hoping to break a two-game losing streak. The Rams, meanwhile, are just trying to figure out how it all went wrong. To go from Super Bowl champion to the worst team in the division in less than 12 months is an impressive failure. Can LA recover, or will Seattle get its mojo back?
Seahawks vs Rams Betting Lines
Seahawks Losing Momentum
Through the first nine weeks of the NFL season, the Seahawks were one of the year’s feel-good stories. QB Geno Smith is having a career year, and Seattle was 6-3 in their first nine games without Russell Wilson.
Cut to Week 12, and Seattle is coming off back-to-back losses to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Las Vegas Raiders. The loss to TB is fine, but the 3-7 Raiders?
Smith continued to play well with 328 yards and two touchdowns, but Seattle’s defense is betraying them at every turn.
On the ground, Seattle allowed a very concerning 283 yards to the Raiders last week. Sure, Josh Jacobs is the league leader in yards, but 283 in one game against this team is unacceptable. It was the same story against Tampa Bay three weeks ago in Munich. Backup RB Rachaad White torched Seattle for 105 yards while starter Leonard Fournette added 57 and a touchdown.
Seattle is also on an 0-2 ATS losing streak after going 4-0 between weeks 6 and 9. But, they do have a positive ROI of 4.53%.

Rams Limp into Week 13
As if things weren’t going bad enough for the reigning champions at 3-8, word out of LA is that Aaron Donald will be out on Sunday with an ankle injury.
The loss of Donald is significant, but that is just the start of the Rams’ defensive injuries. Let’s run down the list of defensemen questionable to make it on the field this week:
LB Earnest Jones hasn’t practiced this week, LB Daniel Hardy may play but is still on IR, and CB Troy Hill and LB Terrell Lewis are also questionable.
Adding to these injury woes are key offensive players with questionable tags: Cam Akers, Matthew Stafford, Lance McCutchen, and Oday Aboushi.
Regarding the betting side of things, the bookmakers still haven’t been able to predict what the Rams will do. If a 3-9 SU record isn’t ugly enough, the Rams are 2-10 against the spread and 1-7 in the last eight weeks.
So, a Rams team that is injured and can’t cover a spread. Sounds like a recipe for a double-digit loss to Seattle. In fact, the Rams have the worst ROI in the NFL at -56.67% and are down -6.85 units. The closest team is the Broncos at 45.57%/-5.95.

Seattle and LA played three times during the 2021 calendar year, with LA winning all three meetings straight up and against the spread. The OVER/UNDER was 1-2 at that time.

Seahawks vs Rams Picks & Prediction
Predicted Score: Seahawks 23, Rams 20
- Worth betting on the Moneyline?
As far as I see it, this game does not have ML value, with the Seahawks -350 to win. While we don’t foresee LA winning, the ML would provide massive value if you bet on them.
- Worth to bet ATS?
Yes. Our best bet for this game is on Seattle to cover -7½ against a shockingly bad Rams offense. Seattle may be dealing with an offensive slump, but a struggling defense is just what they need to get back on track.
- Worth betting on the Totals?
Yes. With the total at 41, we recommend a bet on the OVER.
