SEAHAWKS VS RAMS BEST BETS/PROPS, DEC. 21

Patrick Werkmeister

Seahawks (+7)
For this NFC West showdown, Matthew Stafford and the Los Angeles Rams host Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks. The Rams opened as six and a half-point home favorites and they are currently favored by a touchdown. While Seattle is 1-5 ATS in their previous six games, LA is a shoddy 2-5 ATS in their last seven contests. In Week 14, the Rams defeated the Arizona Cardinals 30-23, whereas the Seahawks blew out the Houston Texans. Although they were able to get the W, the Rams almost allowed the Cards to complete a 4th quarter comeback. However, they can take full control of the division with a win tonight. Similarly, the Seahawks find themselves in a must win situation if they want to keep their playoff hopes alive. With a healthy Seattle roster this time around, they will look to get revenge on this team that beat them in Week 5. Take Seattle plus the points as a hungry road dog. 

Odell Beckham Over 48.5 Receiving Yards
Following productive outings in his first four performances as a ram, superstar receiver Odell Beckham should once again find much success this week. He has already totaled three touchdowns and 15 receptions for 204 yards. He has clearly found a connection with his new QB and is a primary target for their offense. OBJ is a premium wideout and with his receiving total this low, it must be taken advantage of. With the Rams route running expert Cooper Kupp, all focus will be on him leaving Beckham wide open. The Seahawks rank in the bottom half of overall pass defense, and with Matt Stafford throwing for nearly 400 yards in game one, expect them to have major success through the air. Odell has shown he still has that innate ability to get open and accelerate for extra yardage. With how big of a threat he is out wide, he’ll make teams pay that give him any space at all. Expect OBJ to have an overall big night and take him to get it done on the receiving end. 

DK Metcalf Any Time TD (+125)
After a mediocre outing in his last performance, Seahawks wideout DK Metcalf should have a big night with WR Tyler Lockett out due to COVID. With injuries to LA’s defense and Seattle star wideout Tyler Lockett, DK will see a heightened role as the Seahawks should be airing it out all night. So far, he has 56 receptions for an impressive 753 yards on an impressive eight touchdown catches. He has been a big part of their offense and a favorite target for Russell Wilson, so expect to see him targeting him heavily throughout the night. Metcalf is a perfect red zone threat standing at nearly 6’4” 230 pounds, and with his touchdown prop looking this juicy, it must be taken advantage of. With very few options on their offense, he will be very busy tonight, which makes him a trusty end zone option. Although the Rams boast as one of the best defenses in the NFL, Seattle has shown earlier in the season they can move the ball vs anyone. He has had some colossal outings this year where he has two multi-TD performances and a high of 11 targets in one game this year. With how sure handed he is, Russ should be going to him all night. Expect DK Metcalf to have an overall good night and take him to score one for the sea birds.
