The 4-9 SU Rams descend on the Seahawks for Thursday Night football; the perfect bounce back game for Pete Carroll’s troops. Find out how we line up SU, ATS and Total NFL picks.

Point Spread Value

The Seahawks might be coming off a demoralizing 38-10 loss to the Packers in Wisconsin, but that doesn’t appear to be any hindrance to their NFL odds for week 15.  Bookmakers roll out a double-digit figure across sports betting platforms for the Seahawks at home. Granted Jeff Fisher’s Rams have had the measure of the Seahawks in recent meetings…but, wait for it, drum roll…the embattled coach is no longer with the organization. The powers that be finally saw sense. Nothing against Fisher as an individual but his record with the Rams over his four-and-something seasons leaves much to be desired. Indeed, it’s a new era for the Rams. Just unfortunate it begins with a date with the Seahawks, who are raring to get back on track.

The Survivor

This has to be the most straightforward NFL pick if ever there was one in week 15. Just look at the prices on offer for a Seahawks win; they scream certain bet. Lock. Of course, anything can happen but seeing the upheaval the Rams are in the midst of it would be quite the upset if they pulled off the win at CenturyLink. Never mind the Seahawks are 8-4-1 SU with a 3.2 winning margin on average and -0.9 differential versus the spread. At home, they are a perfect 6-0-0 SU this season (a league best), a run of form that includes a 12.2 winning margin on average and +4.2 differential versus the spread. Nuff said.

Game Total

If the last few games since No.1 draft pick Jared Goff took over the reins were any indication, this should be a right washout for the Seahawks. The Rams have been conceding an average of 25 points or thereabouts for the season but the last three games has seen that average augmented by another 14 points. In other words, they’re conceding 39 points per game since week 12.
