  • Over/Under: 52.5

The Rams and Seahawks have met 47 times throughout their storied histories, with Seattle holding a 25-22 series lead. However, L.A. has won the last six of eight contests against Seattle, including six of eight against the spread (ATS). More recently, the Rams are 4-1 ATS in their last five bouts with the Seahawks.

Despite losing at home to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 4, the Rams head to Lumen Field as 1-point favorites. Obviously, the books still believe McVay and Co. are legitimate contenders.

As for the total, the over has hit in each of the Rams’ last six games. Additionally, the over landed in four of Seattle’s last five home games against Los Angeles. Stafford has led the Rams to 20+ points in all four contests this season. Meanwhile, Wilson and the Seahawks have generated 21+ points in all but one (17 in Week 3). This is the third-highest total entering Week 5, but TNF games can be unpredictable. In a battle between divisional rivals, I lean the over in this one.

Rams vs. Seahawks prediction

The last time these teams met, the Rams traveled to face the Seahawks in the 2020 Wild Card round. John Wolford entered as the starter but left the contest in the first quarter with a head injury. Jared Goff stepped in, doing just enough to defeat Seattle, 30-20.

Stafford is a vast upgrade over both Wolford and Goff, but he is coming off his worst game as a Ram last week. The team was riding a high after knocking off the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers. I believe the Rams bounce back and look to stifle their divisional foe.

Wilson may be the better QB, but he has been sacked 8 more times than Stafford. Aaron Donald and Leonard Floyd should have a field day with Seattle’s OL. Furthermore, Ramsey has largely held Metcalf in check when the two have faced off. Lockett will cause defensive fits, but he is a little banged up. The Seahawks have an efficient rushing attack, but if the Rams get out to an early lead, they won’t have a choice but to throw.

Mr. Unlimited will put points on the board, but the Stafford-McVay-Kupp mindmeld will prove too much to overcome. Also, Stafford needs a new nickname. It likely won’t stick, but “The Tinseltown Terror” has a nice ring to it.

Prediction: Rams 35, Seahawks 31
