NFL Betting Preview: Los Angeles Rams vs. Seattle Seahawks

November 19, 2023



A pair of NFC West rivals will battle in week 11 of the NFL season when the Seattle Seahawks travel to Inglewood, California to face the Los Angeles Rams at SoFi Stadium with kickoff scheduled for 4:25 PM ET on Sunday afternoon and will air on CBS.

The Seattle Seahawks are currently tied with the San Francisco 49ers for 1st place in the NFC West with a record of 6-3 and have won three-of their last four games including a 29-26 win at home against the Washington Commanders in week 10 while failing to cover the 6-point spread as a home favorite. The Seahawks have a slightly above average scoring offense that is averaging 22.22 points per game this season, however, they have one of the worst rushing offenses in the league as they enter this game averaging the 9th fewest rushing yards per game in the NFL with an average of 99.78 rushing yards per game. The rushing offense was supposed to be a strength for this team with Kenneth Walker and Zach Charbonnet, however, the running backs have combined for only six rushing touchdowns this season and Geno Smith has struggled in the passing game as he has thrown 11 touchdowns and seven interceptions for a passer rating of 89.2 which ranks 19th in the NFL.

Los Angeles has not had a good team since winning the Super Bowl as they went all in that season to secure their first Super Bowl in Los Angeles and enter this game three games below .500 with a record of 3-6 while also being on a three-game losing streak which includes a blowout loss on the road against the Green Bay Packers by a score of 3-20 in their last game before their bye week last week. The Rams are averaging the 11th fewest points per game in the NFL this season with an average of 19.78 points per game while also having a slightly below-average rushing offense that is averaging 104.89 rushing yards per game. Their struggles can be attributed to their defense that is allowing the 11th most points in the NFL with an average of 22.67 points per game.

BookMaker has the Los Angeles Rams listed as 1-point favorites at home against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday afternoon in week 11 of the NFL season. Los Angeles has won six of the last ten while Seattle has won two of the last three meetings. The Rams are 9-1 ATS in the last ten and have covered the spread in six straight games in the series. The Seattle Seahawks are 4-4-1 ATS overall, 2-2 ATS on the road, 1-2 ATS as an underdog, and 1-1 ATS in division games this season while the Los Angeles Rams are 4-4-1 ATS overall, 2-2 ATS at home, 2-1 ATS as a favorite, and 3-0 ATS in division games on the year.

Seattle enters this game with a better record, however, Los Angeles has been the better team in the series, winning six of the last ten and two of the last three meetings. The Rams have also dominated the series when it comes to covering the spread as they have covered the spread in six straight games in the series and nine of the last ten while also having covered the spread in all of their division games this season with a record of 3-0 ATS in division games which is why I am taking the moneyline for the Los Angeles Rams at -117 when they host the Seattle Seahawks.
