Sunday evening sees the bulk of this week’s NFL games kick off, and this is when we at Lap of the Odds HQ usually suggest an accumulator to try and start the week off with cash in our pockets.
This idea hasn’t panned out so well so far this season (we haven’t come close!), so we thought we would try something a little different. We haven’t given up with the treble idea, we stress, just resting it.
Instead one fixture in particular caught our eye – a NFC West clash between the Los Angeles Rams and the Seattle Seahawks.
The Rams have started the season impressively, racking up a 3-1 record while leading the league in scoring, averaging 35.5 points per game.
This has resulted in the Rams becoming slight favourites to win this game, against the team which has won this division three times in the last four years.
We would question whether running in tons of points against the likes of the Colts and the 49ers means that you can push the Seahawks around. At some point the league’s most renowned defence is going to bite. Additionally, Seattle’s offence showed signs of clicking into gear last week, scoring 46 points against the Colts.
We’ll take the Seahawks to win this game, and will stretch the spread out a little to get a better price.
Recommendation: Seahawks to beat Rams giving 6 point start, 1 pt, at 11/4, SkyBet
