SEATTLE SEAHAWKS @ LOS ANGELES RAMS

NFC West matchup as the division leading Seahawks travel to LA looking to get back on track after a beating in Buffalo last week.

The Rams enjoyed their bye last week and would’ve looked as week 9 as a win in their books as every other team in the division lost but maybe none as badly as their foes in this game. The Seahawks were beaten up in Western New York and had no answer for Josh Allen and Bills defense which gave Russ all sorts of problems but before the Rams get too smug they had some issues of their own to figure out after being embarrassed by the Miami Dolphins in week 8 in a game that Jared Goff in particular will be keen to forget after throwing two interceptions and losing two fumbles but Goff has a good record against the Seahawks especially in LA where he’s 3-1 against Russ.

I really think this is a close one to call, I like the Rams ability on paper to matchup with the Seahawks but their reliance on establishing the run game to open up their offense could be hindered by Seattle’s ability to play the run well. I think we’re going to get a high scoring, close game and I’m going to take the Rams to hand Seattle back to back losses for the first time this season. As for our best bet I like DK Metcalf to get himself a TD in this one, he should be matched up against Jalen Ramsey for most of the game in what I expect to be a great contest but Metcalf has 8 TD’s in 9 games so to pick him up as an anytime TD scorer at even money smells like value to me.

PREDICTION: RAMS 35 – 31 SEAHAWKS     

BEST BET: D.K. Metcalf anytime TD – 1/1 with William Hill. 1 point bet.
