Seattle Tops Los Angeles
The Seattle Seahawks need this one badly to keep pace with the 49ers at the top of the division. The Rams probably need it even more to keep their hopes alive to even reach the postseason. A win here and the Rams would own the head to head in case they could catch Seattle in the division.
The Rams smoked the Seahawks last time, but these are two different teams now. Very familiar with each other, but the Seahawks talent wins out. Take the Seattle Seahawks -1 on the road to win this game over the Los Angeles Rams.
