Los Angeles Rams vs. Seattle Seahawks Thursday Night Football Picks And Odds
The Los Angeles Rams got punched in the mouth just days ago. They don’t have much time to get it together and try to bounce back in a difficult TNF NFC West matchup against the Seattle Seahawks.
Rams vs. Seahawks Odds – NFL Season Week 5
Past games don’t matter, but Sean McVay is 3-1 against Pete Carroll since he entered the league in 2017. The Rams have won the last three in a row.
McVay and mainly defensive coordinator Wade Phillips will get a break after allowing 55 points to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.
|+1.5 (-110)||Spread||-1.5 (-200)|
|Over 49.5 (-110)||Total||Under 49.5 (-110)|

Why a break? The Rams defense has struggled against the pass, but the Seahawks are not a heavy passing offense.
Last week Jameis Winston looked like an MVP type of QB due to the horrible defensive scheme from Los Angeles.
The Seahawks are a run-first team and that suits the Rams a little better than what the Bucs did last weekend.
Los Angeles Rams vs. Seattle Seahawks Betting Preview
It’s also a great position to change gears on offense for the Rams. It’s clear the team won’t win by putting all the responsibility on QB Jared Goff. It was evident during last year’s Super Bowl, and it happened again on Sunday.
Goff’s three interceptions and a fumble lost against Tampa Bay should tell McVay that his quarterback still has some major issues.
Whether Todd Gurley is healthy or not, the Rams will have no choice but to give him a lot of touches against Seattle. It’s the only way they win this game on the road.
What’s the Seattle Seahawks edge over the Rams?
We are still not sure what the Seahawks are this season. Yes, their record says 3-1, but they have played teams with a combined 1-15-1 during the first month.
Home-field does remain a significant factor for Seattle, especially on a very short week against a divisional opponent.
The Seahawks’ edge on this game comes on the defensive side, especially as the Rams are having problems protecting Jared Goff.
Pro Football Focus graded Los Angeles o-line as the worst in the league after four games.
Biggest problem the Rams need to fix:
Bottom 5 OL in NFL in PFF grade:
28: NYJ 52.3
29: JAX 50.8
30: CIN 49.7
31: MIA 42.5
32: LAR 40.9
You just saw the wreckage that was Cincy’s OL on MNF. The Rams are grading WORSE right now.

Goff has been sacked eight times which is not much, but you can tell his mental clock is accelerated. He doesn’t have time for the plays to develop and ends up making a lot of mistakes.
Keep in mind the Rams lost OT Rodger Saffold and center John Sullivan in free agency. The team misses both.
Seattle’s defense is in the middle of the pile with six turnovers forced. They should be able to get a couple more against the Rams on Thursday Night when applying pressure to an erratic Goff.
Rams vs. Seahawks Thursday Night Football Pick
When the line opened, there was a lot of respect going on the side of the Rams, but that changed in the last few hours.
Several sportsbooks had Los Angeles as a -1 favorite at the start, but that line is long gone. These two teams are evenly matched.
The Rams have their offensive line problems, but I would expect McVay to come out with an alternative game plan that will allow the team to run the football better.
Seattle And Their Winning Record
Seattle has a winning record that doesn’t fool anybody. They haven’t beat a good team yet, and they coughed a home game against the New Orleans Saints even with their backup QB under center.
When in doubt, always take the points. It should be a close game, making the 1.5-points valuable. Some sportsbooks might have this betting line at +2, so don’t be afraid to shop around. Bet Rams +1.5.
