With Sam Bradford lost for the season the Rams will call Clemens' number for Monday night, and the oddsmakers at Bovada have them pegged as 12-point home underdogs as a result.
St. Louis sits at 3-4 SU and 2-5 ATS on the season, and they're coming off a 30-15 loss at Carolina in which they'd been listed as 7-point underdogs on the NFL betting lines. Clemens completed 2 of his 4 pass attempts for 19 yards in relief of Bradford in that contest.
The Seahawks, meanwhile, are 6-1 SU and 5-2 ATS atop the NFC West standings heading into Week 8, and they topped the Cardinals 34-22 as a 5-point road favorite on the NFL odds last time out. Russell Wilson went 18 of 29 for 235 yards with three touchdown strikes for Seattle in that victory.
The OVER/UNDER for Monday night's game is set at 43 points at Bovada, with Seattle at 4-3 and St. Louis at 6-1 on the totals so far this season. The OVER/UNDER sits at 3-6-1 in the past 10 games between the Seahawks and the Rams dating back to 2008.
Seattle went 8-2 SU and 7-3 ATS in those past 10 games against St. Louis, but last season the Seahawks were just 1-1 SU and 0-2 ATS against the Rams. Both of those matchups turned out to be UNDER results for totals bettors.
