Seahawks vs Rams: MNF betting odds
In a Monday night battle between NFC West rivals, the Seahawks are double-digit road favorites over a Rams team reeling from losing their starting quarterback.
And they own most of the meaningful trends as well, including a 4-1 ATS run in five games as a road favorite; 5-0-1 ATS past 6 Monday Nighters and 9-3 ATS in their past 12 games head-to-head against the Rams.
St. Louis lost starting QB Sam Bradford for the season to a knee injury suffered in Sunday’s loss at Carolina. Bradford was on pace for a career year. It will be up to backup Kellen Clemens to lead the Rams against a stingy Seahawks’ defense that boasts the NFL’s best secondary.
Seattle had a couple extra days to prepare, after knocking off Arizona on Thursday. The Seahawks have covered the spread in nine of their last 12 meetings with the Rams. Seattle is 5-0-1 against the number in its last six Monday Night games, while the Rams are a dismal 1-5 against the spread in their last six appearances on Monday Night Football.
They battle the Seahawks, currently with a 6-1 mark (5-2 ATS). The over under records, important for totals bettors, are 6-1 for the Rams and 4-3 for the Seahawks.
Bettors who were going with the Rams in this one found them listed as 6-point underdogs on the betting line at Bovada but bet all the way to +13. That 13 was the highest spread number as of Monday morning, very tempting for Rams backers. Totals bettors have seen that number set earlier in the week at 41.5 for Monday and it was 43.5 at Bovada which was also the highest value on the board.
The Rams sit at No. 25 in the current NFL Power Rankings here at OddsShark, while the Seahawks are at No. 2 on that chart. Math models have concluded that the Seahawks will win this game 31-18.

Seattle comes off a game where it received a 3-TD performance from Russell Wilson in defeating the Cardinals 34-22. The Rams suffered a Week 7 loss against Carolina in their last game, falling 30-15 at Bank of America Stadium.
