The  9-5 Seattle clinched their spot in the postseason, but now they can take care of some other business with St. Louis. The Rams are 6-8, but they beat the Seahawks in the first week of the season.

Opening Odds & Line Movement
Open: -13.5 -105 at Pinnacle
The NFL odds opened for this game at -13.5 for the Seahawks at home and they’re still there. Seattle has won five in a row after manhandling Cleveland 30-13 at home, and the offense has scored 29 points or more in each of those five games. QB Russell Wilson is on a tear with 19 touchdowns and no picks in those games, while the defense seems to have gotten its act together. The Rams have won two in a row after beating Tampa Bay 31-23 in what might be their final game in St. Louis as the team might be moved to Los Angeles. However, the Rams will look back at a recent five-game skid and wonder what might have been as their offense couldn't generate points, and that ruined their season. The offense looked fine in a 34-31 overtime win over the Seahawks in Week 1, despite three turnovers, and that was without rookie RB Todd Gurley, who is one of three players this season with over 1,000 rushing yards.

Injuries
The Rams don't seem to have any new injuries to report going into this game, but if they have any at all, they should start thinking about shutting players down. There is no sense in risking players for the future, even though the team doesn't even know what their future holds.

The Seahawks have a few injuries, starting with S Kam Chancellor, who hurt his tailbone and missed last week's game. TE Luke Willson has bad ribs, while fellow TE Anthony McCoy hurt his ankle. The Seahawks might choose to save these players, but given how they've been playing, if they can go, they'll play.

 

Trends
The Rams are 6-7-1 ATS this season, going 1-4-1 ATS away from home. The Seahawks are 7-6-1 ATS, and 4-3 ATS at home. The total is set for 40.5 and the Seahawks have gone over seven times, while the Rams have gone under 10 times.

The Seahawks are 7-3 SU and 5-5 ATS in their last 10 meetings with the Rams, who last won in Seattle in January 2005. They're 0-10 SU and 2-8 ATS over that time.
