Are the Rams In Trouble?
The Rams looked awful against the Arizona Cardinals, but is that that the real Rams or just a hangover from the win over Tom Brady? During the loss QB Matthew Stafford forced the ball to his favorite target in Cooper Kupp and he could not connect. Cupp got 5 passes out of 13 targets and Stafford will have to mix it up if they want to move this offense. Stafford also struggled to throw the ball deep. Stafford completed 1 of 4 passes for 35 yards and an interception on deep pass attempts against the Cardinals. Before this loss, the Rams were 10-4-1 against the spread (ATS) against the NFC West.
Will the Real Russell Wilson Please Stand Up?
The Seattle Seahawks are a good team, right? For the first few drives against the San Francisco 49ers, Seattle looked bad. But then Russ turned it in. Many will suggest if the 49ers had a kicker and if Jimmy G stayed in the game, the results may have been different. However, Wilson is a deep ball master cashing in 4 out of 5 times for 76 yards and touchdown on passes of more than 10 yards. When the Seahawks are in trouble, Wilson delivers. Before this win, the Seahawks were an abysmal 2-5 ATS in the last seven games overall.
Rams vs Seahawks Week 5 Predictions
The Rams will be a popular pick this week but this is a tough spot. They are off a bad loss and they have a short travel week. The Seahawks are 8-1-2 ATS on Thursday night and they are 12-4 ATS in the last 16 games as an underdog. The Seahawks have revenge for a playoff loss and they have a strong running game that averages 107 yards per game.
The Rams are still reeling and the Seahawks are the best bet on Thursday night.
