BEST BET Seat­tle over L.A. RAMS by 13

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

If his­tory has a say in this game – and it usu­ally does – it could be ar­gued that the wrong team is fa­vored to­day. The sur­pris­ing Rams, who haven’t been to play­off game since 2005, adorn them­selves with fa­vorite’s cloth­ing for the 4th time this young sea­son, on the heels of last week’s up­set win at Dal­las know­ing they are 1-5 ATS at home be­tween away games, and 1-5 ATS in di­vi­sion games fol­low­ing con­sec­u­tive away games. En­ter the post­sea­son­tested Sea­hawks, a play­off squad each of the last five sea­sons, who are 6-0 SU and 5-1 ATS in games be­fore their bye week the last five sea­sons, as well as 16-7 SUATS fol­low­ing an AFC op­po­nent, in­clud­ing 5-0 ATS as a dog. Yes, the suc­cess of the Rams has been pleas­ant, but an 11-30-2 ATS mark since 2012 by 1st-year coaches that find them­selves fa­vored in games fol­low­ing a SU un­der­dog win has not. And fi­nally to rest our case, we turn to THE CLNCHER: See this week’s AWE­SOME AN­GLE on page 2.
