BEST BET Seattle over L.A. RAMS by 13
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.
